the whole 30 breakkie bowl

Do you guys ever go to bed dreaming about what you’re going to have for breakfast the next morning? I do. It’s actually one of my favorite things- to fall asleep thinking about a warm cup of coffee and a comforting slow breakkie. I’m a comfort person in the morning. I like waking up slowly, taking my time to make a meal, and creating space for myself to nourish and rest before jumping into a day. I’m two weeks into Whole 30, and I’ve recently discovered one of my new favorite things for breakfast: the ultimate breakkie bowl.

When I was in college, cereal became a guilty pleasure of mine. I loved midnight bowls of Life cereal with my best friend, with conversations going late into the night. There is something nostalgic for me about eating a bowl full of sweet and rich flavors. Sometimes I wake up in the morning wanting to dig my spoon into a massive bowl of cereal. During Whole 30, when grain is a no-go, I’ve come up with a way to still get that dig-into delicious bite that starts my morning in comfort and richness.

This bowl is so full of great things for you. It starts with a bit of fruit, and is packed with seeds, nuts, coconut, and almond butter to keep you full, satisfied, and nourished throughout your entire AM. If you’re needing a sweet treat morning with a bit of crunch and packed with sustaining goodness, give this Whole 30 bowl a go.

The Whole 30 Breakkie Bowl

1 banana, sliced
1 small apple, sliced
1 tablespoon chia seeds*
1 tablespoon unsweetened flaked coconut
1 tablespoon pecans
1 tablespoon almond butter
1/2 cup Whole 30 approved cashew milk*
2 dried figs

In your favorite bowl, stir together your chia seeds and cashew milk.

Top bowl with bananas, apples, coconut, pecans, and almond butter. Top off the bowl with your dried figs!

**Note: If you have the time, let your milk and chia seeds sit for 20-30 minutes. The chia seeds will plump, which makes the mixture thicker and more pudding-like.
