1/2 tbsp agave nectar
1 heaped tbsp whole almonds, roughly chopped
35g/1 1/4 oz/1∕3 cup rolled oats
1 handful of raspberries
1 tsp instant coffee granules, or more to taste
1 tbsp warm milk
2 tbsp ricotta cheese
1 tsp vanilla extract
25g/1oz dark chocolate, 70% cocoa solids, grated
- Preheat the oven to 170°C/325°F/gas 3 and line a baking tray with baking paper.
- Melt the butter in a non-stick saucepan over a low heat, add the cinnamon and agave nectar and cook for 1 minute until the the ingredients have combined. Remove from the heat. Stir in the almonds and oats, then spread the mixture evenly over the prepared baking tray. Bake for 20 minutes, then remove from the oven and leave to cool on the tray.
- Divide the mixture between two large wine or dessert glasses and press down gently to make it firm. Squash the raspberries slightly with a fork, then put them on top of the oat base.
- In a bowl, mix the coffee granules into the warm milk, adding a little more coffee if you prefer a stronger flavour. Stir until the granules have dissolved, then leave to cool. Stir in the ricotta and vanilla extract, then beat together well to form a smooth,creamy consistency. Spoon the mixture equally into the glasses and sprinkle with the grated chocolate.
