Poached Apricots over Ground Golden Flaxseed, delicious and perfect for breakfast or dessert, just 2 ingredients

Poached apricots with Ground golden flaxseed

I was so amazed that two healthy ingredients could make such a delicious breakfast that I had to share it.  It is also a great, weekday healthy dessert.

Cooked apricots served warm or room temperature over Flax Farm Ground Flaxseed and just a tad of vanilla extract, if you have it, is sublimely delicious, perfect for breakfast or dessert.  It’s nutrient-filled, has lots of health benefits and about as healthy a breakfast or dessert as you can find. It is rich and  gorgeous like a moist sponge dessert, Perfect as it is but you can add Greek yoghurt, preferably enhanced with Flax Farm Flaxseed Oil.

Alternative fruits

Apricots aren’t always available, peaches, nectarines and plums make  excellent alternatives. Apples, strawberries and rhubarb can all be poached and also taste amazing and are low in sugars.

Part of a healthy diet

A helping of 4 Apricots offers loads of nutrients but is less than half the carbs and sugars in a bowl of muesli or typical breakfast cereal but has more than double the fibre so advantageous .

  • Useful in a weight control diet
  • Great for a healthy regular digestion
