Breakfast of yoghurt with figs, honey, almonds and toasted oats

Try this special tasty breakfast and tick lots of nutritional boxes early in the day!

Tip: This also makes an ideal snack either before or after your training.

GB Rowing Team nutritionist Jacqueline Birtwisle, says: “This breakfast ticks lots of nutritional boxes, especially minerals. High in carbs, it also provides a bumper 25g protein and nearly half the daily requirement for calcium thanks to the figs, yoghurt and almond combo.”

You can add extra fruit to this dish as well – try a handful of blueberries or strawberries.

Ingredients (serves 2)

2 servings of Greek or natural yoghurt
50g rolled oats
100g almonds – leave the skin on
2 tbsp honey

How to make it

  1. Divide the yoghurt between two bowls. Spread the oats onto a baking tray and toast until golden under a hot grill. Once the oats are lovely and golden leave them to cool for a few minutes.
  2. Roughly chop the almonds and sprinkle over the yoghurt. Then sprinkle with the oats and honey.
