Lean Eating Cheats

Baklava Inspired Greek Yogurt
Baklava Inspired Greek Yogurt

I love myself some Baklava! For those of you who don’t know the bliss of this Greek pastry, let me describe it to you in detail… Phyllo sheets layered with almond/walnut meal with cinnamon and cloves, baked and then drenched with a honey syrup. To much goodness in one bite. But alas, this does not fit in with my fitabulous plan! So because i actually devoured more than my share of Baklava this weekend, I was inspired to bring the flavour into a healthy snack. Bikini season is just moments away after all.

I processed some walnuts and almonds and added some cinnamon and ground cloves. Easy on the cloves, it does have a strong taste. I like a 2:1 ratio here. Voila, you are done. I sprinkle this on my greek yogurt, add some blueberries and half a banana. The drizzle some all natural maple syrup and I am a very happy lean eater. Protein, antioxidants, the right amount of potassium, good fats… and flavour. What more can you ask for?

Let me know what you think.
