At the moment I am absolutely loving doing some baking on a Sunday morning and yesterday I got quite a bit done. It is especially good at the moment as it is son sunny in the morning so is great for taking pictures plus it just makes you feel really good.
This sunday I made an especially tasty breakfast that my mum and I enjoyed before settling in for a Silk Marathon, we had all 4 episodes so far saved on our Sky box and once we started it was hard to stop. The best thing about this breakfast is it will keep for the next day and the flavours will only get stronger.
I admit that this is probably not something you will make every morning but is great on a Sunday and would make a lovely treat for your mum on Mother’s day this sunday. If you do not have time to make this in the morning you could always prepare it the day before and then in the morning just warm the oven to 190C/375F, add some milk and warm it for 15 mins or so.
There are lots of ways you can vary a breakfast like this, it would be great if you added some berries with the plums and you can play about with the nuts you put on the top and go for the flavour that works for you. I have used reasonably sharp plums and kept it a low GL dish by using Xylitol and Agave in small amounts. If you want more sweetness then feel free to add it in but remember the effect on your blood sugar. Also if you want a gluten free breakfast then just make sure your oats are gluten free and there you have it!
