It’s hard to believe that this breakfast is actually healthy – it feels so indulgent! Yet it is PACKED with nutrients. Antioxidants from the cacao, healthy fats from the cashews and nut butter, fibre from the oats, omega 3 from the flax…and there’s no refined sugar or flour in sight which makes it an excellent way to start the day!
