Sweet breakfast tacos we’d happily eat any time of day

While you’d normally associate tacos with salt, spice, and citrus, these sweet versions are a delicious way to start your day. Oh, did we mention they’re healthy? Sold.

These chocolate breakfast wraps are 100 percent vegan, gluten-free and naturally sweetened with banana. They are similar to a thin crepe although smaller and filled with delicious coconut yoghurt, fresh berries and a big drizzle of nut butter to create the perfect, balanced meal.

It’s made with nourishing ingredients including buckwheat flour which is a great source of fibre and a complete protein source with all the essential amino acids and flax seed which is high in omega 3 fatty acids and lignans (a type of phytoestrogen).
