1. Crunchy almond muesli
Nothing beats a healthy serving of muesli in the morning and you can up the health benefits by adding some yummy almond pieces. Simply heat 1 cup of olive oil with 1 cup of honey in a pot and then drizzle over a baking dish of rolled oats, desiccated coconut, flaked almonds, granulated nuts, walnuts and pepitas. From there, bake in the oven until golden brown. Serve with almond milk and fresh berries for a delicious breakfast.
2. Blueberry pancakes with flaked almonds
Add a healthy twist to this family favourite and everyone will be asking for seconds. Blueberry pancakes with almond pieces are easy to make and can be prepared in a hurry. Prepare a simple batter consisting of flower, butter, milk, eggs and, of course, blueberries and flaked almonds. Cook in a hot pan and you’ll be good to go. Our tip? Try and get your blueberry to almond ratio spot on. Drizzle with gooey maple syrup for bonus points.
3. On the go almond granola bars
Granola bars are great for people who need to leave in a hurry. Similar to our muesli dish, anyone following along at home will want to combine rolled oats with their favourite nut mix (including almonds) and bake with a sweet, syrupy sauce. We recommend using a natural honey to help your granola bars set and stay together for easy eating with your hands. Be sure to make a bunch because these goodies won’t last long.
4. Almond milk smoothies
Ditch the crunch and opt for a smoothie instead. This liquid based breakfast idea is great for anyone looking to lose weight and improve health. Get your hands on a blender and start reaching for avocado, spinach, banana, cinnamon and a cup of almond milk. From there, hit the whizz button and watch as a delicious almond milk smoothie comes to life before your very eyes.
