Granola Dust is a nutritious pantry staple that will give you a great start to the morning by adding a little extra bit of protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals to your breakfast. Blitz toasted oats, nuts, seeds and your favorite flavors together for a quick breakfast sprinkle!

Preheat oven to 350°F / 175°C. Toss the oats, nuts and seeds together onto a large roasting tray. Roast for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.
Add everything except the chocolate into a food processor. Pulse until the mixture becomes the texture of sprinkles. Add in the dark chocolate pieces. Pulse until the chocolate pieces are about the size of a mini chocolate chip. Pour everything into an airtight container. Store in a cool cupboard. Depending on the size of your food processor, you may need to blitz in batches.
Use granola dust for breakfast however you like. To name a few ideas, I find it delicious sprinkled on yogurt, added in smoothies, spooned on oatmeal, mixed in chia seed puddings, cooked into an oatmeal, or even used in pancake batter.
This recipe is adapted from Jamie Oliver's Eat My Granola Dust.Here’s a time-saving secret: If you don't want to turn on the oven, just buy and use roasted nuts and seeds in the recipe.Roasted nuts and seeds will add enough flavor to the granola that you can get away with not toasting the oats. Just mix the Granola Dust into some sort of liquid (yogurt, smoothie, pancake batter, milk) before eating.
