It seems there’s a date or week for every type of food at the moment, so if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em! The 24th – 30th of January marks National Breakfast Week, so we compiled a list of our favourite breakfast bites below; well, it is the most important meal of the day after all!
These pancakes are great for a quick and healthy way to start to your day! A lot of these banana-based pancake recipes involve no more than three ingredients and chances are, you’ll always have at least two of them in your kitchen! The great (perhaps greatest) thing about pancakes is the unlimited choice of toppings. From the healthier options of blueberries or strawberries, to the sweeter servings of maple syrup or chocolate sauce!

The mornings before work aren’t always as relaxing as those on the weekend or on days off. You might find yourself tightly packed on a train or caught at a set of traffic lights before you know it, so a pastry on-the-go might seem like the easiest option. Here’s where we can help! Give yourself 20 minutes (max) the night before to put together a jar of oats, natural yoghurt and berries. Leaving this delicious mixture overnight will allow the oats to absorb moisture from the yoghurt, so when you dig in the next day, you’ll be able to enjoy spoonfuls of enriched oats! Ideal for eating whilst getting ready or you can grab-and-go for the train ride to work.

Who said breakfast was hard? Granola is one of the easiest meals to make and is brimming with nutrients! You can create a granola mix that’s perfect for you, whether you’re a big fan of fruits or nuts about, err nuts, there’s something for everyone! It can also be very money-saving if you make a big batch to last the week. Accompany with milk or yoghurt and everyone will be snooping over your shoulder to find the recipe.

Full English Breakfast: The Healthy Edit
It wouldn’t be a breakfast post without mentioning the ‘Full English’, but if you’re wanting to cut down the calorie count, there are ways to do this. First up, swap the frying for grilling! Grilling your sausages and bacon will reduce the amount of fat (literally) as you’ll be able to see it dripping off the meat! Instead of frying the egg, crack it into a pot or pan of boiling water to poach. Mushrooms and tomatoes can be cooked on a griddle pan or roasted in the oven if you prefer. Pop a couple of wholemeal slices into the toaster and soon enough, the English Breakfast will be full of healthier alternatives; the perfect welcome after a long Sunday stroll.
Have a go this weekend with this recipe to hand.
