Breakfast tacos with apples and cinnamon: Try the recipe

Tacos for for breakfast

After whipping up a batch of these apple pie breakfast tacos from Lauren Harris-Pincus, founder of NutritionStarringYOU.com and author of The Everything Easy Pre-Diabetes Cookbook, we’re pleased to announce that they’re worth a try.

“Everyone loves a hearty savory taco for dinner, why not switch things up and enjoy a light and sweet version for breakfast? Apples and cinnamon are an aromatic perfect pairing for fall and these Apple Pie Breakfast Tacos are a sweet, creamy, crunchy, salty and gluten-free treat,” says Harris-Pincus. 

THESE ARE THE BEST IMMUNE-BOOSTING FOODS, ACCORDING TO EXPERTS

The registered dietitian recommends serving one for a snack, or two for breakfast for about 300 calories and 15 grams of protein with no added sugar.

If you like to meal prep your breakfasts, Harris-Pincus suggests cooking up a batch of the apples in advance, whipping the cottage cheese and keeping both in separate containers in the fridge to simply add to the taco shells in the morning.

Try any type of apple you wish.
