Sour Cherry Skyr With Chocolate Granola

A hint of sour, a hint of sweet. Enjoy this perfect combo of tasty sour cherry skyr with delicious granola and dark berry topping.

Make a homemade chocolate granola to top the soft and creamy skyr and balance the cherry flavour. Because what is more classic than cherry and chocolate?

They are unmistakably delicious together! It is easy to make this tasty breakfast or snack and even easier to enjoy.


Step 1
  • Roast the hazelnuts on a dry and hot pan for 4-5 minutes. Let them cool off and rub off most of the skin. Chop them roughly.
Step 2
  • Roast oatmeal on a dry, hot pan for 1-2 minutes. Add butter, cocoa, honey, and salt. Roast for another 7-10 minutes or until the granola is golden and dry. Chop the chocolate. Lightly mix the chocolate and nuts with the cooled-down granola.
To serve
  • Arrange in bowls, top with granola and fresh berries and serve right away.

Our recipe will give you more granola than you need for a few servings of sour cherry skyr, but you can easily store the freshly made chocolate granola in a closed container for at least a week. Make sure it has cooled completely before adding chocolate and storing it in the airtight container.

Be careful when roasting the hazelnuts, as they can burn quickly, making them bitter. If you do happen to burn them, you can try to fix it by removing all the skin instead of just some of it. Boil and place them in an ice bath until you can carefully remove the skin. This should take away most of the burnt flavour.

There you have it; delicious roasted dark chocolate granola to use as a crunchy and flavourful topping for your morning meal.

Although delicious on its own, you can always add more toppings to the sour cherry skyr. As in our recipe, fresh berries are delicious with skyr and chocolate granola. The granola adds some crunch as well as an intense, deep flavour due to the roasted hazelnuts, dark chocolate, and cocoa used. Dark berries are delicious with the sweet and sour cherry flavour, so use, for example, blackberries and blueberries, to create a nice juicy burst and balanced berry flavour in combination with the sour cherry flavour.

Sour cherry skyr with granola and berries

Sometimes, simple is best -especially in the morning. This sour cherry skyr is scrumptiously creamy and has a natural sweet and zingy cherry flavour. It is perfect for cherry lovers that want that deep fruity flavour outside of the cherry season. And when you need something to balance that flavour, what is better than chocolate? Cherries and chocolate are a match made in heaven, perfectly balancing sweetness, tartness, and bitterness.

The homemade chocolate granola features delicious deep and dark flavours from cocoa, roasted hazelnuts, and dark chocolate, making for a very crunchy topping that is perfect with the creamy sour cherry skyr. For the finishing touch, add blueberries or blackberries on top. The dark berries add a pop of colour on top of the purplish cherry skyr and make for a juicy burst of sweet and tart flavours.

Crunchy chocolate granola and soft dark berries

The figurative cherry on top of your bowl of sour cherry skyr is the crunchy chocolate granola with roasted hazelnuts. It has some irresistible deep, dark, and intense flavours from dark chocolate and cocoa, as well as roasted hazelnuts and oatmeal. The roasted oatmeal adds some nutty flavour and contributes to the crunchy texture, and with the other ingredients, you will get an overwhelmingly good granola.

But the granola does not stand alone in topping the sweet and sour cherry skyr. Dark, juicy, soft berries are the crowning touch, adding flavour, colour, and an irresistible juicy burst. The juicy berries let you enjoy mouthfuls of flavours and textures from the sour cherry skyr, sweet and sour blackberries and blueberries, and crunchy dark chocolate granola. Use fresh berries for the juiciest experience and freshest flavour.

Enjoy sour cherry skyr as a filling breakfast or healthy snack

Sour cherry skyr is not only delicious for breakfast but also as a snack. For breakfast, it allows you to start the day with a taste of sweet and sour, juicy berries, and crunchy chocolate granola to give you a wide range of textures and flavours; perfect for waking up the body and mind! Skyr has a high amount of protein and serves as a tasty and healthy snack in the afternoon when you need a little pick-me-up but do not want to go the sugary sweet way. So, whether you are enjoying the creamy sour cherry skyr for breakfast or as a snack, you are in for an irresistible cherry-flavoured treat!

Make it your own

It is easy to experiment with this bowl of sour cherry skyr so you can have it every morning and still find it new and interesting. For example, in a blender, blend frozen or fresh dark berries with sour cherry skyr to a frozen smoothie. Put in a bowl, sprinkle dark chocolate granola on top, and enjoy the frozen sour cherry skyr smoothie bowl. For another frozen skyr idea, try our frozen skyr with berries, somewhat resembling ice cream or, of course, frozen yoghurt.

If you want a mellower topping, instead of dark chocolate, use other chocolate types like milk or white chocolate or a mix of all three types. All chocolate types will be delicious with roasted hazelnuts and the other granola ingredients, and since the cherry skyr is both sweet and sour, both tangy white chocolate, sweet milk chocolate, and bitter dark chocolate are perfect. Another delicious granola and berry treat mixed with skyr is our recipe for creamy skyr with granola and berries with homemade granola made of different seeds and berries to create a sweet and tart topping.
