Super Sprinkle!

Super Sprinkle - boost your nutrition with nuts and seeds - www.mywholefoodfamily.com

I used to love breakfast.

Back in the days when I ate gluten and dairy (and had a myriad of health problems I might add), breakfast was my favourite meal of the day!

Sugary cereal, yoghurt, fruit bread, toast with jam, pancakes, waffles you name it.

These days I'm not really hungry as soon as I wake up and often won't have breakfast until after I've dropped the kids off at school. And as a side note, there's a lot of research about the benefits of fasting so getting a solid 14-15 hours between dinner and breakfast is probably doing me lots of good!

Most days I have eggs scrambled up with some veggies leftover from dinner the night before BUT I'm really starting to crave other things and getting a bit bored of eggs.

For the past few days my breakfast has been a grated appled topped with a few tablespoons of this super sprinkle mix on top. Light, fresh and surprisingly filling!

It's really just a mixture of nuts and seeds but I've started calling it Super Sprinkle to get my kids on board with it. Once I gave it a name they have loved having it on their porridge or yoghurt and in smoothies. Haha!

It's a great way to boost their nutrients and good fats and of course it tastes delicious too.

Just throw everything into the food processor and blitz. We like it a little chunky but you could process it until it is more finely ground and add it to your biscuits and muffins as well to give them an extra boost.

Super Sprinkle

1/2 cup raw almonds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup coconut flakes
1/4 cup linseeds
1/4 cup chia seeds
1 tbs cinnamon
pinch sea salt

Place all ingredients in your food processor or Thermomix and blitz to desired consistency (TMX about 8-10 seconds / SP 9).

What's your favourite breakfast? x
