Ricotta and cinnamon fruit toast is officially our new breakfast favourite.
In an effort to escape the chilly winter mornings we smear hot toast with creamy pale fresh ricotta, top with fresh fruit and dust with the lightest kiss of ground cinnamon. Both Grace and I love this toasty treat and along with a gorgeous cup of coffee (or if I am feeling virtuous a cup of herbal tea) I am set and fuelled for the day.
Although I really wasn’t trying I feel I have conjured up quite the healthy breakfast. We use an organic spelt and chia seed loaf, fresh ricotta that is rich in calcium, beautiful fresh fruit filled with vitamins and minerals and cinnamon that according to my health friends is wonderful for regulating blood sugar levels and reducing cholesterol levels. Yay.
Grace really enjoys this breakfast and I am sure most baby led weaning parents would agree with me, she also has a rather unique way of eating it! I can see that she really enjoys the flavour combination of apple and cinnamon as well as the different textures; which keep her happily feeding herself whilst mummy enjoys breakfast too. One of the very many perks of the baby led weaning approach.
To begin, toast the bread to your version of golden perfection. As I mentioned before we love an organic spelt and chia seed loaf but please feel free to use the bread of your choosing, whatever bread you love.
Once toasted, smear each piece with a generous helping of fresh ricotta.
Prepare your fruit by thinly slicing or defrosting.
Top with the fruit of your choice, we love apple and raspberries but banana or pear would be fantastic too! And to finish dust with a little ground cinnamon. Breakfast is served! Enjoy!
