There is nothing like fresh fruit, something warm and toasted and coffee at breakfast. Muffins smothered in butter, fresh doughnuts still a little bit warm, and who can forget cinnamon buns and don’t forget danishes. All delicious treats but so full of unnecessary calories and fat. I usually stick with oatmeal and half a grapefruit for breakfast to avoid all those calories but that has definitely lead me into a breakfast rut that I want out !
If you are in a rut, and looking for a low-fat option with whole grains you will want to check out Ozery Bakery’s Breakfast Rounds! (Don’t forget to read on for my Breakfast Fruit Bruschetta Recipe!)
Ozery Bakery is a family-owned bakery that started off with humble beginnings. I was sent a few packages of their low-fat, vegan Morning Rounds & Snacking Rounds to check out.
They are fruit and whole grain buns that are amazing as is or toasted with your favourite spread. They easily replace white bread, bagels, and pastries. They are also available in several varieties – Muesli, Apple Cinnamon, Cranberry Orange, and Date & Chia. Ozery’s Rounds are low in fat, free of artificial preservatives and contain lots of beneficial fibre, iron, calcium, Vitamin B, antioxidants, and folic acid. Morning Rounds are crafted with care in small batches, and contain absolutely nothing artificial.
The Breakfast rounds and snacking rounds have been a huge hit in our house. These packages lasted no more than 3 days because everyone loved the flavours, and especially the freshness. It’s been an easy way to change up how we start the day and especially how we snack during the day.
They also freeze really well so you can get the bakery fresh flavour and softness anytime just by thawing or toasting from frozen! You can get the bakery fresh taste of Ozery’s rounds online or at a store near you.
I absolutely cannot get enough of the Apple-Cinnamon nor the Cranberry Orange flavours but that isn’t to say the other flavours didn’t disappear just as quickly. You just can’t beat fresh, healthy and wholesome food!
