While on a recent vacation, we had the pleasure of having breakfast at an amazing restaurant in New York City, Citizens of Chelsea.
My daughter ordered a granola bowl that had bee pollen as one of the toppings. Well, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about this and I finally had a chance to research it and find something fun to make.
Bee pollen contains nearly all the nutrients vital to human health. It’s gathered by bees to nourish their babies as they fly from flower to flower. It can be used to decrease allergies and strengthen the immune system, among other benefits. Although, it should be avoided if you have pollen allergies.
For my first attempt, I thought dark chocolate sounded like the perfect vehicle for the bee pollen.
I followed the recipe, but will improvise next time and add whatever fun things I have in my pantry. You can really make it your own.
As an added bonus, I was able to channel Jackson Pollock and incorporate some splatter painting into it😊
Isn’t it beautiful?! And I got art time too!
After it hardened and I broke it into pieces, the masterpiece was complete.
