It’s Choko Season – part 3
Chokos, apples, sultanas, some clove and cinnamon powder and a little yacon sirup, topped with some coconut or bunya nut crumble and yoghurt… A nice warming start to the day!
Cut up a kilo of apples and as many chokos as you like / want / need to use up. Put the pieces into a saucepan, add a tsp of powdered cloves and a tsp of cinnamon and sweetener of your choice (I use home made yacon sirup). Amount of sweetener used depends on how sweet you would like your breakfast… Add some water to ensure the apples and choko do not stick to the bottom and bring to boil with lid on pot. Stir regularly. Whilst this is boiling you can make the crumble. Either whip 6 eggs and add around 3/4 cup of coconut flour (the mix can be a little dry, so add more flour if too wet) OR put 3 handfuls of boiled bunya nuts into a blender with 6 eggs and blend. Add a little water if necessary to draw down.
Put the crumble mix in a heated pan, greased with melted ghee. Stir the mix whilst cutting it with the egg flipper to get the crumbly effect. Just before the mix is cooked, add some dessicated coconut.
When the apple and choko is soft, take off the heat and spoon into bowls. Add the cooked crumble mix on the top and top it with yoghurt. Enjoy this warming breakfast! (serves around 4, but leftovers will keep in the fridge for a few days and also makes a nice snack or dessert!)
