A simple but luxuriously tasting breakfast perfect for a Monday morning to ease you into the week…. 🙂

Wild blueberries are one of my favourite fruits to eat.  Rather more expensive than you average tub of blueberries but, as a treat, I think they are worth every penny!  My hands and nails are stained blue from creating this breakfast this morning, a sure sign that these liitle berries are packed full of their superfood boosting power of anthocycanins – the antioxidant pigment which gives them their deep purple colour.  I buy them frozen so I can keep them from spoiling and I just pop a handful onto warmed porridge oats, like I have here, to give a nutritional flavour boost to my breakfast.  Teamed with a spoonful of runny almond butter, banana slices and a few squares of dark chocolate to melt into the oats, all drizzled in some pure Maple syrup to hit that sweet note – what more do you want to start the day?!

If you find them on your food shopping travels – be sure to buy some and check them out so you know what I am raving about 😉

Enjoy! Joanne
