What I love about this breakfast is that all three components can be made ahead of time so unless you’re in the mood, you don’t have to put in any effort in the morning (something that certainly appeals to me).

You might remember the ginger cardamom raspberry jam from several previous recipes here (such as this baked brie and these Linzer cookies) and it’s so versatile that I’m sure this is not the last time you see it. Instead of sugar I used agave syrup this time just because I really like it, I find it much less harsh than white sugar.

      THANK you, Natasha! That is so nice of you to say and I really appreciate it. I find bright and light a lot more difficult to do than dark…

      You got it, Abbe! The weather is driving me nuts too, I hate looking at my poor garden buried under all that snow…

    I’m a huge fan of make ahead breakfasts and I always have overnight oats for a weekday breakfast. I just pop them in my bag and eat them at work – I also sweeten them with agave syrup as I love it too!

    This looks great Nicole, really refreshing and tasty.

    • Nicole B. says:

      Thank you, Angela! Agave syrup is amazing, isn’t it? I’ve started to use it in my tea instead of white sugar and I love it.

    Nicole I have also been on a cardamom recipe hunt as my friend just brought me a huge container on her recent travels. I love its aromatic floral and calming properties. Gorgeous shot and would love this for breakfast any day. Loving your new profile photo too. Wishing you a super week!

      Thank you so much, Bobbi! Cardamom is one of my favorite spices, it’s so interesting and complex. A super week to you as well! :)
