Given my enjoyment of Kyra's online recipes, I was delighted when she asked if I'd like to review a copy of her first e-book, Plant-Based Breakfast for Kids. I don't have children, so my review is based on my adult opinion. However, I can confirm that the dishes appear child-friendly. For example, what child wouldn't want to try breakfast pizza, no bake breakfast cookies, or pancakes of any variety?
I am not usually a huge fan of e-books, on account of finding it hard to justify purchasing an e-book when there are so many great free recipes online. However, this particular e-book may have converted me. It was set out simply, with beautiful photographs accompanying each recipe, and every one of the 25 recipes appealed to me.
|No bake breakfast cookies|
The book is divided into three sections. Make ahead items include the cookies I tried, pictured above and below, lots of creative overnight oat combinations, muffins, and a chocolate orange granola which I'll be making as soon as I get a chance. Quick breakfasts include smoothies, porridge, breakfast parfait and the breakfast pizza I referred to above. Lazy morning meals features such offerings as chocolate buckwheat crepes and a raspberry and coconut French toast bake.
The no bake cookies that I tried worked extremely well, especially given they have just 3 ingredients and take 5 minutes to mix up and then 30 minutes to chill. You can't ask for easier than that! They held together nicely and were great for snacking as well as breakfast time. Crucially, they also tasted good - like flapjacks or oat bars in raw cookie form.
I wish Kyra all the best with her e-book ventures and if you are looking for some breakfast inspiration for yourself or for children, I highly recommend Plant-Based Breakfasts for Kids. Given it costs about the same as a take away coffee (AUD $4.99 / USD $3.63 / £2.41) it also seems good value.
I was given a complimentary copy of the e-book to review. All opinions are my own.
