These Fruit and Nut Breakfast Bowls are just the thing for busy mornings! With the new school year starting this week, I thought it was time I shared with you a brekkie that frequents our breakfast bar on school mornings.
My spin on Thermomix CADA, these Fruit and Nut Breakfast Bowls are made in just a few minutes and are a fresh, tasty, healthy breakfast that the kids are sure to love.
Check out how easy it is to make them (even though I’ve sped the timing up on this video, I promise they should be on the table in about 5 minutes!)
This healthy breakfast is made using just a 7 ingredients and chances are you’ll probably have most, if not all, on hand right now. Here’s what you’ll need for the fruit and nut component. The rest you can add according to taste – we always have on top of Greek yoghurt then topped with a little honey, plus sometimes a handful of rolled oats.
What’s not to love about these Fruit and Nut Breakfast Bowls?!
These may soon become a favourite for you for those busy weekday mornings. We have them regularly as they have so much going for them!
- They’re so quick to make (and pretty quick to eat too!)
- No real skill required – my kids can make them (though my 4 year old needs a little assistance)
- They use easy to access ingredients, most of which you probably have in your kitchen already
- They are filling, healthy and nutritious
- The kids love this and I love knowing they’re starting the day off with a healthy breakfast
- They’re easy to customise to your taste, or what you have on hand – experiment with your choice of different fruits and nuts!
It will take a couple of minutes to gather the ingredients you need, and prep the apple and date. Once done, the fruit, nuts, coconut and chia are all added to the Thermomix bowl and chopped.
Just 5 seconds, speed 5 is all that is needed!
Once the fruit and nut mixture is done, serve it up with your choice of added extras.
Here’s some suggestions for you of some tasty extras you could try:
- Yoghurt – this is always a non-negotiable for us. You can use Greek, flavoured, coconut, whatever your preference.
- Rolled oats – these add nutrition and help with satiety. We do usually serve with oats, it means less/no requests from the kids for food between meals.
- Granola – the Chocolate Granola in Lunches and Snacks Made Easy is the one we always have on hand. Made chocolatey or by following the non-chocolate variation, both go down well here.
- Chopped fresh fruit – added on top, some sliced banana or strawberries, or whole blueberries will add a different texture dimension, as well as nutrition and flavour.
- Your choice of other nuts and/or seeds, toasted or not.
- Hemp seeds sprinkled on top add nutrition.
Make these Fruit and Nut Breakfast Bowls YOUR way
As well as the different topping ideas above, ultimately you can customise these fruit and nut breakfast bowls any way you like. Make them using the things that you love and using the ingredients you have on hand.
- Why not try swapping apple for a pear?
- You could use pitted dates instead of the fresh medjool, I’m sure that would work perfectly fine.
- A couple of dried apricots add deliciousness and natural sweetness.
- The almonds can be swapped out for any nut or seed of your choice.
The recipe will make 2 – 4 serves, depending on what you serve it with, how much yoghurt you add and how hungry you are!
I’d love to hear how you make these, and what you think of them! I hope they become a helpful regular brekkie for you and your family!
Be sure to leave me a comment underneath the recipe letting me know.
