Serves 4

Prep time 30 minutes

Ingredients For the Granola

2 cups of buckwheat groats
11/2 cup mixed seeds (sesame, poppy, pumpkin)
1 cup oats
1 cup coconut flakes
1 tsp of ground cardamom
1 tsp of ground ginger
1tbsp honey
1tbsp coconut oil, melted

Ingredients For the Fig & Chia Jam

6 ripe figs, washed and chopped
1 lemon, juiced
A pinch of ground ginger
1 cup water, approx.
1 tbsp chia seeds

Serve with coconut or Greek yoghurt


Preheat the oven to 190°C.

Mix the ingredients together in a large bowl, lay onto a baking dish and bake in the oven until nicely browned – about 20 minutes. Stir once halfway through.

In a saucepan, add the figs, lemon juice and ginger. Cook on a gentle heat for 10 minutes, adding water if necessary as you go, to avoid sticking. Add the chia seeds and cook for a further 5-10 minutes, until the figs have started to dissolve into a thick paste. Remove and cool.

With the yoghurt of your choice, fill a jar alternating between yoghurt, granola and jam. Repeat until you’ve filled your jar, and serve with a pinch of fresh thyme.
