It was by far, the most delicious pastry I have ever eaten. My picture is of the strawberry flavor that the Boulanger Patisserie had. Definitely not a health food, and definitely not something I could get from any local bakery in my area - nor did I want to start my morning off with something like that...
To satisfy my craving, I thought almond butter on toast with cinnamon on top would suffice. Accept I didn't have any almond butter... But I did have almonds, and I do have a Vita Mix. So I was driven to make a yummy and satisfying morning treat. I needed something to wet the almonds in the blender, I had apple sauce in the fridge and I thought that would add a nice texture and flavor. After I blended together the almond and apple sauce to make a creamy, sweet and tangy spread, I toasted some old world sprouted grain bread and spread the almond apple butter on top. I enjoyed two slices with my morning green smoothie - it was perfect.
