  • Step 1

    Place 3/4's of the blackberries into a small saucepan with a squeeze of honey and bring to the boil. Remove from heat and leave to cool.

  • Step 2

    Once cool, divide the compote into the bottom of your serving dishes or small Kilner jars. Keep some juice for the topping.

  • Step 3

    Fill the dish/jar with Greek yoghurt until about 1cm from the top.

  • Step 4

    Sprinkle the granola over the top.

  • Step 5

    Place the remaining uncooked blackberries on top of the yoghurt, spoon over the reserved juice, add a drizzle of honey and finish with some fresh mint.


Blackberries, also known as brambles, are part of the rose family and there are more than 375 varieties found around the world.Blackberries are rich in vitamin C, vitamin E and folate, as well as providing useful fibre. A handful counts as one of your 5 a day.Greek yoghurt is higher in protein than other natural yoghurts, because the yoghurt is strained during manufacture, giving it a thicker consistency and concentrating the protein. Choose 2% or 0% fat varieties to get the most protein.

Starting the day with both protein and fibre should help to keep you fuller for longer through the morning.
