If you’re avoiding wheat, a dense nut bread is delicious. Rye, sourdough and low GI seed bread makes the best toast. The secret to these breakfast toasts is the silky chocolate yoghurt. My daughter Sabrina came up with the idea and it’s been a house favourite ever since. It is super simple to make with a real chocolatey flavour.  You’ll need thick Greek yoghurt, cocoa and a drizzle of honey. Whisk together to combine until silky and  mousse-like.

A quick word about the toast. Toast the bread until crusty and crisp. When it comes to toppings, the choices are limitless. Summer berries, nectarines or sliced bananas are our favourites. That said, these yoghurt toasts are as good with autumnal fruits like pears or caramelised apples. To finish, scatter with a handful of goji berries, cocoa nibs, toasted nuts and a drizzle of runny honey. It goes without saying that all toast should be eaten immediately. But then again, who’d want to wait?
