Breakfast Cheesecake In A Jar

So I kind of have a thing for granola, as you may well know. (Exhibit a, b, c, d.) I even like incorporating it in muffins, and my crumbles end up looking more like fruit compote with granola topping. It was my favourite breakfast as a teenager until I realised that the shop-bought kind was chock-full of sugars, oils and other processed ingredients that have no business being in my body. I stopped buying granola and started having smoothies and porridge in the morning (I was still eating oats, after all, so it wasn’t a big sacrifice) but every once in a while, on a lazy Sunday morning, there’s nothing like making your own granola.

This new café opened down the street. A cheesecake café. Edinburgh’s getting a bit hipster, isn’t it? I don’t mind, except for the fact that I obviously can’t eat any cheesecake there — and of course that’s been making me crave cheesecake lately.

So what’s a girl to do when she’s craving cheesecake and granola in the same week, and she happens to pick up some fresh berries at the farmers’ market?

This is such a super simple breakfast to make, and it’s perfect for the summer days ahead when you fancy a change from smoothies or heavier breakfasts like porridge. Pop it in a mason jar and you can easily take it with you to work, as a snack on the road (road trip food, anyone?).

You could use cashews to make the creamy ‘cheesecake’ filling but I opted for tofu as I am trying to include more protein my diet lately. You could also use coconut yogurt or cream instead — it’s a versatile recipe.

This time around I used Oh, Ladycakes’s recipe for clumpy banana and almond butter granola, but I think I’ll try this recipe with my double chocolate banana granola next time for an indulgent twist!

  1. This looks so good, I can’t wait to try it – and I’m not necessarily a huge cheesecake person, but I’m all about the easy and cold/refreshing summer breakfasts. A good opportunity to try your granolas as well!


    • Maybe you’ll like this one then. It’s not like a traditional cheesecake, as the base is a lot crunchier and the ‘filling’ is a bit softer and runnier, more like a yogurt consistency. It feels like a more indulgent breakfast but at the same time it’s quite light and filling.
