TOPPERS!

  • I served this one for my lovely boyfriend with: dried baby figs, a dollop of almond butter, goji berries, bee pollen & a delicious little "nutella" ball (roasted hazelnuts, chia seeds, dates & raw cacao).

  • Mix it up with using a range of different toppings: toasted coconut flakes, natural coconut, toasted pepitas & sunflower seeds, a dollop of tahini or other nut butter, golden berries, cacao nibs, grated apple, sliced banana, mixed seasonal fresh berries or frozen berries, activated buckwheat, hemp seeds, slithered almonds, white mulberries... oh the list goes on!
