"Choco pop" granola.

1 cup dates
1/2 cup water
3 tbs cacao
3 tbs syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
chilli powder
salt

Mix together in a food processor  and then add:

2 cups oatmeal
1 cup coconut
1/2 cup ground almonds

Now my girls prefer to eat it at this stage but if you wanna take it all the way you spread the mix over a baking sheet and cook in the oven for 10 minutes at 180°C.  You can make it the night before it you want an hassle free breakfast and if you like it you can double the recipe because this one keeps for couple of weeks in an airtight container. Perfect week-end treat.
