Serve up a summery breakfast or snack with this delicious baked nectarine recipe from California Walnuts. Bake with muesli and serve with Greek yoghurt for a low-sugar and gluten-free sweet treat.

Greek yoghurt is an easy and delicious way to support your gut health and adding your daily dose of probiotics.  Probiotics are the gut-friendly bacteria that have numerous benefits for various areas of our health and wellbeing. This includes maintaining healthy gut movements, promoting immunity and lowering cholesterol. Having good gut health is an excellent way to keep your tum happier and flatter – find out more in Liz’s guide here.

Honey gives added sweetness to this baked nectarine recipe. Honey – specifically raw honey – is thought to have antioxidant properties, helping to mop up any damaging free radicals that our cells generate during metabolism. Antioxidant levels vary from honey to honey (depending on the bees’ floral source and location), but typically the darker the honey means a higher value of antioxidants. For a vegan alternative in this recipe, swap for maple syrup instead.
