Healthy breakfast recipe for Apple and Star Anise Breakfast Puddings with Maple Pecan Nut Sprinkles
4 apples, cored
1 Tbsp butter, softened
2 star anise
Juice of 1 orange
To serve, 1 cup strained yoghurt (place yoghurt in muslin cloth for at least 4 hours to drain excess liquid for a creamier end result, optional)
For the Maple and Pecan Nut Sprinkles:
1 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp Maple syrup (or brown/coconut sugar)
½ cup roughly chopped pecan nuts
3-4 Tbsp mixed seeds
½ tsp ground cinnamon
To a pan add the butter, maple syrup, pecan nuts, mixed seeds and cinnamon. Cook over low-medium heat until toasted and fragrant.
Meanwhile, to a medium-sized pot add the butter, and when it has melted add in the apples, star anise and orange juice.
Simmer for 15 minutes and then set aside to cool.
Layer yoghurt, apples, yoghurt and then a sprinkle of nuts and seeds.
