We celebrated the first Sunday in December with a fun festive brunch today. It was delicious, packed with nutrition, and looked amazing on our plates. I had to share!
It all started with a request for waffles from my kids. So I made my waffle recipe which you can find here but made a few substitutions and additions. First I used a variation adding Baby Brain Organics which you can see here and then I added 1 tsp. a cinnamon and 1 tsp. of vanilla. The Baby Brain Organics added omega 3 fatty acids and protein. The cinnamon and vanilla added a little extra “Christmas” flavor.
Next I sautéed the apples (slice 3-4 apples thinly, toss them in 1 Tbsp. grapeseed oil and 1 tsp. cinnamon, then cook stovetop for about 10 minutes on medium high). I served the waffles and apples with caramel flavoured Greek yogurt (dairy free vanilla coconut yogurt for the twins) and raspberries to add that nice red colour. We all decided that the combination of cooked apples and waffles tasted like apple pie and the yogurt was like ice cream on top. Meanwhile, the brunch was packed with protein, omega 3, and antioxidants!
If you are hosting Christmas brunch this holiday season I highly recommend this. In addition to tasting great, it also looks lovely on the plate! If you aren’t, then maybe you just want to serve it to your immediate family as I did today!
Until next time…stay healthy!
