It’s no secret that I’m a dessert for breakfast kinda girl. This baklava flavoured breakfast bowl takes my treat-for-breakfast obsession to the next level!
A beautifully fragrant breakfast, the chia and quinoa really sing with the addition of rose water, orange and maple. Topped with pomegranate, berries, fig and pepita seeds, and you’ve got a fancy café style breakfast waiting to be devoured. Divine!
