Apple & Chai Breakfast Jars

There’s nothing I love more than fresh juicy fruit in summer but as the temperature starts to drop I start to crave warming cooked foods and these baked apples are perfect for autumn breakfast. They are slowly baked in a warming mix of chai spices and coconut suger until soft then served with creamy oats & coconut yoghurt. I love using tart green apples for this recipe to balance out the sweet chai spices. This is a great make-ahead breakfast as it keeps well in the fridge and the flavours get better over time. It’s delicious with the porridge served hot topped with warm baked apples. If you want it warm just heat the oat mix on the stove and top with the apples straight from the oven. I’ve also put a basic chai spice mix in which you can make a bulk batch of then use it for chai lattes or tea as well, alternatively cinnamon will work great as a replacement.

Maple & Cinnamon Chia Pudding

Chia pudding is a recipe I get asked for all the time which is crazy because it is the easiest thing to make. Chia seeds can be a little bit intimidating at first as they instantaneously go from a tiny crunchy seed to a thick gelatinous blob the second they touch liquid. This is because they are jam-packed with soluble fibre. The fibre absorbs the water and helps everything move smoothly through our digestive tract. Yay fibre! Chia seeds are also packed full of plant protein (6 grams per serve) and healthy fats which makes them the perfect food to help you power through your morning. This is one of my favourite breakfast because you can make it the night before and its ready to go in the morning, It travels extremely well so you can take it to work or school or the gym if you have to eat on the go. I’ve supplied my basic maple & cinnamon Chia pudding recipe along with 3 different flavour combinations, apple/date/tahini – Coconut/tropical fruit & Chocolate/raspberry/peanut …

Superfood Bircher Muesli

Working in a cafe means I don’t have a lot of time in the morning to make a full on breakfast. I’m usually up at 5am and out the door by 5 30am so I need a great grab and go breakfast that requires no effort what so ever. This bircher is great when you have a busy week or early starts. Its a breeze to throw together, it lasts for up to a week in the fridge and you can vary the ingredients depending on whats in season. I make a big batch the night before I go back to work then portion it out into takeaway containers. That way I know I have a nourishing meal to start the day with. This recipe is a play on classic apple pie flavours using grated apples, warming cinnamon, sweet raisins and oats soaked in almond milk until everything becomes deliciously creamy.  You can really use whatever fruit you like and then add in nuts, seeds and spices to bump up the nutritional value. I love to add …
