Apple pie porridge with maple syrup
Porridge really comes into its own in Autumn, it's warming, filling, cheap and doesn't have to be boring!
I created this recipe when I was working with a maple syrup brand, and it's become a real favourite- it's a great way to sneak a little bit of fruit into the kids breakfast, the flavours are great for children and adults alike, and it's also a great breakfast to make for house-guests that isn't too labour intensive but looks and tastes delicious!

Berry baked oats with toasted almonds
This makes such a delicious and filling breakfast- and it's good enough to feel like a weekend treat! If you are short on time in the morning it is fine to pre-cook and re-heat in the microwave, or you can have the dry ingredients pre-mixed, and the wet ingredients pre-mixed ready to just combine quickly in the morning. I just love the crunchiness of the almonds on top of these. I don't add any sweetness into the mix- I like to serve them with raspberries, fat-free yoghurt and some maple ...
Triple-layer chocolate french toast
French toast makes a fantastic breakfast, as it's as much as a treat as pancakes but it's so quick and easy to make. Last week I had a sudden brainwave after being reminded about the Kingsmill wholemeal crustless toast in Tesco- how about a triple layered French toast, sandwiched together with chocolate spread and peanut butter?!
So this was the first incarnation of this meal- a layer of bread, a layer of peanut butter, a layer of bread, a ...
Blueberry vanilla & almond baked oats
This makes such a delicious and filling breakfast- and it's good enough to feel like a weekend treat! If you are short on time in the morning it is fine to pre-cook and re-heat in the microwave. I just love the crunchiness of the almonds on top of these. I don't add any sweetness into the mix- I like to serve them with raspberries, fat-free yoghurt and some maple syrup, but if you prefer it to taste sweeter you could add some sweetener or fruit syrup/maple syrup into the mix.

Blueberry, oat, cinnamon and almond muffins
Finding new ways of baking with oats has been my saviour since starting to follow Slimming World. I've never really been a fan of breakfast, and I need something really tempting to make me fancy it! I adore oats because they are just so filling, but I find porridge hard to eat. Baked oats are so delicious and these muffins are just yummy! I just love the crunchiness of the almonds on top of these. I don't add any sweetness into the muffin mix- I like to serve them with raspberries, fat-free ...
Blueberry baked oats with almonds, cinnamon and maple syrup
This is my favourite breakfast, these are so tasty and so filling! If I've made the time to make these in the morning I find I don't even think about snacking before lunch. These are lovely on their own, but I usually serve them with fat-free natural yoghurt and frozen raspberries. You can prepare the night before by putting the dry and wet ingredients into separate bowls so that all you have to do in the morning is combine and bake!
Breakfast eggy crumpets
This recipe is from Jamie Oliver's 'Jamie at Home' book (available here on Amazon) - since we first had this it has been a real favourite for my husband and I- it's super easy to do but qualifies as a 'special' breakfast in our house! You might feel a bit doubtful about the addition of the chilli, but please try it (if you generally like chilli) it works SO well with the rest of the ingredients. We always have ours with brown sauce although Jamie says you can also use maple syrup.
I'm always experimenting with different pancake recipes as I love them as a breakfast option! These ones use pureed raspberries to flavour them, and are lovely served with honey, golden syrup or choc shot and some fresh berries!
