Apple Pie Breakfast

Apple Pie Breakfast

Phew, lots of hard work done. I’ve just uploaded my new website, to match the new blog of course…

So I’m ready to blog again, and I have a got a great recipe to start off the new look blog. Seeing as I no longer eat cereal for breakfast, I’m always on the out look for something quick, easy and healthy to make that will satisfy my sweet tooth. Smoothies are great, but it’s nice to find something to eat out of a bowl like I use to in my cereal days.

Oh, and if you’re wondering why I don’t eat breakfast cereals, firstly take a look at the sugar content. And of course for those of us with gluten intolerance, most cereals aren’t gluten free.

But let’s get back to apple pie for breakfast. Apples are great for you, Banjo knows this too, although last year he found out the hard way that too many apples gives you tummy ache (he was eating all the fallen apples in the village on his walks). This recipe is super easy, very tasty, and you’ll think you’re eating dessert. It is very sweet, so save it as a treat rather than an every day breakfast, it’s all about balance.

Serves 2

  • 1 apple
  • 5 dates
  •  1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • sprinkling of sultanas
  • sprinkling of nuts
  •  sprinkling of pumpkin seeds
  • teaspoon chia seeds/flax seeds
  • 2 Tablespoons yoghurt
  • drizzle of honey or maple syrup

Cut the apple in a spiralizer on medium noodle blade or slice finely into strips,divide the apple cuttings between two bowls, sprinkle each of the bowls with the cinnamon, sultanas, nuts, pumkin seeds and chia seeds, and top with a tablespoon or more yogurt, and maybe a slight drizzle of honey. Sit back, and eat mindfully.
