    Granola Yogurt with Chocolate Espresso Sauce

    Time to use a hit of bitter to wake up your breakfast routine. This coffee-chocolate sauce adds a haunting bitter element to everything it touches from creamy yogurt to pancakes to a bowl of vanilla ice cream. As with wine and vinegar, reducing coffee concentrates its flavour so a little goes a long way.

    Dark delight

    Dutch-processed cacao (often spelled “cocoa”) has been treated with alkali to tame its natural bitterness. Natural or “raw” cacao still retains its bold flavour personality as well as the health-hiking antioxidants.

      01

      In small saucepan, place coffee and maple syrup. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-high to maintain a strong boil, and heat, uncovered, until reduced to 1/3 cup (80 mL), about 15 minutes. Stir in cacao powder, vanilla, and cinnamon until smooth. Let cool. The sauce will thicken further.

      02

      To serve, divide yogurt among 4 serving bowls and drizzle on espresso sauce. Top with granola, raspberries, and cacao nibs, if using.
