Serving Suggestions


  • To toast nuts just place them into a non-stick pan and heat on medium. Move them around until you can start to smell the nutty goodness and everything is golden. Keep an eye on them as they will move quickly from gorgeous to gross!
  • Dried apples add sweetness and texture – it makes breakfast just a little bit special.
