Breakfast Wrap

This particular item more resembles dessert than breakfast but the nutritional profile doesn’t disappoint. All I did was take a flax gluten-free tortilla and topped it with the following

1 tbsp chocolate peanut butter (I used Peanut Butter and Co. but really any vegan nut butter will do)

2 tbsp dried blueberries (dried cranberries or raisins would work well too)

1/2  banana, sliced

1/4 apple, sliced

1/4 cup granola (I used Cascadian Farms)

I microwaved it for 20 seconds so it would soften and then ate it… It kept me full until lunch time. The crisp acidic apple and the soft sweet banana were perfectly balanced with the chewy blueberries and nutty chocolate crunch of the granola and peanut butter. Next time I might add some slivered almonds.

Breakfast Parfait

Vegan doesn’t mean you have to skip parfait. We’ve found a yogurt recently that makes me dance around the kitchen. Amande is made from cultured almond milk and is completely vegan, gluten-free and delicious. It comes in strawberry, coconut, cherry, blueberry and peach. I can’t decide which is my favorite.

We combined it with Wyman’s frozen wild blueberries and Cascadian farms fruit and nut granola for a super easy tasty treat. I come from a family of blueberry addicts. I love blueberries and these are particularly flavorful. I eat them on my cereal almost every day.

It didn’t last long and had the most delightful textures. The frozen blueberries kept it cold and the crispy granola and smooth yogurt made the whole thing kinda decadent. What do you do for your quick easy snack or breakfast?
