Sometimes it’s hard to find healthy breakfast options that don’t taste like you’re grazing fresh grass, especially if you like something a little on the sweeter side. This is one of my favorite ways to start the day, especially since it’s packed with all kinds of nutrients like fiber, protein, and healthy fats that hold me over for a few hours. Between my 6 year old son, my parents, and me, a batch of this gets polished off within a matter of days.
In fact, this dish can also double as a dessert as well, since it’s similar to a fruit cobbler. Just tell people it’s a fruit cobbler so they don’t get all weirded out by eating something that’s healthy for dessert. Trick them first, then tell them later.
