It Doesn’t Get Any Easier Than This

I love Saturday mornings! I’m often up early to take our oldest to swim team practice. When we get back, the rest of the family is awake and ready for breakfast. We’re chilled from the early start and looking for some comfort food.

I love pancakes, but hate the calorie load of maple syrup. Plus, it often seems like a heavy meal.

This berry compote makes a nutritious addition, giving you just enough sweetness without it being overwhelming. Plus you get the nutritious goodness of the powerful antioxidants in the berries themselves, without added sugar. And as a bonus….it’s super easy to make!!!
