Super breakfast!

It’s a shame we don’t always have time for super special breakfasts on a weekday but there’s no reason not to have sometjing really tasty.

This quick breakfast was sliced avocado on seeded toast and a bowl of baked apple pieces with sliced banana and blueberries. I ‘baked’ the apple in the microwave by cutting it into bite sized pieces and zapping it for 5 minutes while I was doing the toast. The bowl had 2 whole apples in – skins and all. Super tasty and super healthy!

Baked apple has continued to be a saviour during lent as it tastes so puddinh-like without the processed sugar.

Talking of lent, I may have gone overboard at the weekend. No excuses: I just didn’t avoid sugar when I could have. So today (as well as yesterday) it’s back on the no-processed sugar bandwagon!

Give me all of the baked apple!

I made two flavours 🙂 both of which I will be making a lot more of over the coming christmas period 🙂 I made apple shortbread and chocolate peppermint shortbread.

Recipe:

– Basic shortbread (family recipe – no can tell!) – any cookie mix or shortbread mix will work (my shortbread had no eggs)

– Add peppermint hot chocolate to the choccy peppermint ones

– Add apple flavouring to the apple shortbread ones 🙂 (I used apple powdered tea that I got from turkey  aaaages ago)

I know I said I’d post a recipe that I can tell you, well, shortbread is so simple, this counts!!

Feeling hungry now? 😉
