“I don’t know what to have for breakfast” is the dilemma that contributes towards so many busy people sticking to the same old cereal and milk for breakfast or missing it altogether. And that’s not a great idea if you experience cravings, lack of energy or the 3 pm slump.
Remember what it’s like to look forward to breakfast again with this breakfast inspiration for the cooler months ahead. Here are some of my favourite ideas and twists to breakfast classics and some of the new and trending recipes. Try them out and pick your own favourites for the busy weekdays and for more relaxed weekend brunches.
Autumnal porridge (oatmeal)
Carrot, thyme and feta muffins
Although baked oatmeal is relatively a newbie in the food blogging world, it has become a quick favourite due to its ease and simplicity. Similar to a traditional flapjack or breakfast bars, baked oatmeal can be cooked until it’s quite soft or until it’s harder, like a granola bar. Equally, it can be eaten hot or cold, with additions, such as coconut or natural yoghurt, or completely on its own. Hundreds of recipes exist of baked oatmeal ideas and my favourites include berries, such as blueberries, raspberries or blackberries for extra moisture or cinnamon, apple and pecans for warming taste.
Courgette and feta oven omelette
Similar to any savoury or sweet oven bake, the courgette and feta oven omelette helps save time, it’s easy to make and absolutely delicious to have as leftovers. Packed with quality protein to set you up for the day, this bake is also an excellent way to include as many of your 7-a-day vegetables as possible, without much effort. Double up on courgettes, add spinach, green peas, kale and even broccoli for some extra greens and extra energy.
Another excellent option when you’re stuck for quick and easy breakfast ideas on the go is a homemade granola pot. Couldn’t be easier to make, as you simply layer your ingredients- add berry or apple compote as a bottom layer, generously scoop coconut yoghurt or natural yoghurt as the biggest, middle layer and top with granola. If you can, make your granola yourself with delicious warming spices, nuts and seeds or if you’re short of time, get a premade version, lower in sugar. You can pre-make the pots the night before, but add the granola layer in the morning or just before eating, in order to preserve the crunch.
