It’s been a while since I’ve posted any recipes. We are trying to spice up our breakfasts here. Miss E eats most at breakfast time (80 grams of porridge oats before milk has been added to cook it to be precise!) and we want to give her healthy breakfasts that are filling and have variety as at the minute her breakfasts have been a bit 1 dimensional! The girl LOVES oats and out eats both her daddy and me at breakfast time, so here’s what we’re having tomorrow:
25g jumbo oats
1 tbsp flaked almonds
1 tbsp hazelnuts (roughly chopped)
2 tsp clear honey
3 dried apricots (chopped)
1 tbsp dried cranberries
150g low fat natural yogurt
How to make it
- Dry fry the oats and nuts for about 3 minutes over a medium heat until toasted.
- Stir in the honey and dried fruit and allow to cool slightly.
- Reserve 1 tbsp of the mixture and stir the rest into the yogurt.
- Spoon into a glass and top with the reserved oat mixture before serving.
Try using a flavoured yogurt like strawberry or add fresh fruit for a different taste.
I have assumed the quantities are for one person, so I tripled it. I have toasted off the oats and nuts tonight and mixed it with the fruit, so in the morning, it will just be a matter of pouring out the yoghurt and mixing in the oaty, nutty, fruity, goodness! I did, of course, try a little of the mix just to ensure it was safe to give my family and it tasted pretty good. 😉 What is your favourite breakfast recipe?
