Dessert or Breakfast?

This crumble is probably one of my favourite dishes to make.  It is fast, versatile and super nutritious!

If I don’t have a certain ingredient, this recipe can be easily adapted to what you have in your pantry/fridge.

The crumble topping includes, nuts, seeds, and good fats.  So, breakfast or dessert?  I say BOTH!

This dish provides:

Protein (from the sunflower seeds, pecans, almonds and chia)
Fibre (from the nuts, seeds, oats, fruit and chia)
Fat (from the coconut oil, nuts and seeds)


As I feel every meal, especially breakfast, should start with a meal consisting of protein, fat and fibre, I’d say this is perfect for the mornings.  However, it is also super satisfying for a snack or dessert.

If you don’t have chia, use flax.  If you don’t have all the listed nuts and seeds, use what you have.  Maybe you need more oats as you don’t have enough of the other ingredients. Perfect!  I don’t think I have made this recipe the same way twice.  Fruit can be whatever you want – berries, apples, or a mixture – you choose!

Kids will love having a dessert for breakfast!

In kindness,
