Alright, I’m hitting you with two breakfast posts in a row to make up for my procrastination in the category. This is going to be a short one and no cooking involved because, like I said in my first brekkie post, I keep it simple in the mornings with lots of fruit and nuts. And I wasn’t kidding – most of the ingredients for this recipe are in the title. But no one likes the mid-morning hungries, so this is REALLY filling to keep you going until lunch.
It’s good to start the day with a big breakfast and a big dose of fiber. I almost couldn’t finish this bowl. But then I did. It was yummy. Also A+ with a cup of coffee.
FIG, APPLE AND ALMOND BALSAMIC BOWL
1/4 cup whole unsalted almonds
1/4 cup dried figs
1/2 – 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
Drizzle of honey (as always, sub for agave or maple syrup for total vegan-ness)
Chop the apple into cubes. Slice the dried figs. Combine in a bowl with the almonds, and then drizzle balsamic vinegar and a bit of honey over the top. Breakfast is served.
- Try with a pear instead of an apple
- Add a sliced banana and split into 2 servings
- Use as a lunch side with your favorite sandwich – enough for 2 people as a side
