Hemp Granola with Orange Poached Pear
Hemp seeds are a fantastic vegan protein source and they’re one of the richest plant sources of polyunsaturated essential fatty acids. Hemp seeds contain a perfect balance of omega-3 to omega-6 fats, which help promote strong immune function and cardiovascular health. You will also get a good dose of probiotics to support gut health, mood and immune function from this wholesome breakfast.

2) In a small bowl combine honey, coconut oil and vanilla.
3) Place coconut, nuts, seeds and oats, cinnamon in your food processor and pulse 3-4 times, so you still have a chunky granola. Transfer mixture to a bowl and then stir through honey mixture until well combined.
4) Spread granola mixture out evenly onto two baking trays and bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown. Toss after 15 minutes. Allow the granola to cool then store in a jar in the fridge.
5) To poach the pears place pears, juice, water, ginger and orange zest in a small saucepan. Make sure the pears are covered, if not add some extra water. Simmer for 20 minutes until soft.
