1. Porridge

A nice traditional, filling and energy-boosting option popular in my country, Scotland. It can be made with water and oats or milk/cream and oats. I make mine with water and add various delicious things to make it extra tasty:

  • A few of chunks of extra dark chocolate which go gooey and melt while cooking for some chocolate tastiness in the morning!
  • 1 or 2 tablespoons of frozen or fresh berries
  • A drizzle of maple syrup or honey
  • 1 tablespoon Nutella or other chocolate spread 1 tablespoon of seeds (e.g. chia or pumpkin) / nuts (e.g. desiccated coconut)

2. A sweet omelette

  • While beating the egg add some maple syrup or honey and cinnamon as well as a tablespoon of water. Cook as normal and serve with fresh fruit /or Greek yoghurt.

3. Greek yoghurt and fruit sauce

  • See my blog post on blueberry sauce for how to make a super scrumptious sauce.
  • You can also just stir in some lovely ripe fruit (raspberries work particularly well as they will break down when stirring and create lovely bright pink swirls through the yoghurt!)
  • Tinned fruit also works but watch out for tinned fruit ‘in syrup’ as it will be very sugary – ‘in juice’ is a better healthy-conscious choice > Top with chia seeds, flaxseeds, pumpkin seeds etc.

4. ‘Make-your-own’ muesli-style dish

  • One possibility is using oats with grated apple, flaxseed, semi-skimmed milk and coconut flakes and pecan nuts.
  • Another is using bran flakes, a chopped pear, pecan nuts and semi-skimmed milk.

5. Breakfast mugcake
