This delicious recipe works perfectly as healthy breakfast option. The recipe allows you to use fresh ingredients, plus, keep unwanted, refined sugar at a low. I also designed this recipe to be nut-free (but you can substitute some of the seeds for nuts if you’d prefer) plus it makes 10 portions, so you’ll always have a healthy breakfast available for when you need it.
