Three Little Bears: A Year In Instagram Breakfasts

IMG_20140309_100638

There’s something a little different for you this morning, not a recipe (apart from some yummy roasted grapes and pancakes) but some inspiration to get your breakfast taste buds tingling. A lot of people don’t eat breakfast but I honestly don’t think there’s a good enough reason not to have it. If you don’t have the time, make it the night before. If eating that early doesn’t agree with you then jar it up and take it with you to eat a little bit later on. Whether it’s a big full English, pancakes, oats or a piece of toast YOU NEED TO EAT BREAKFAST. I can’t tell you enough how important it is for your body and mind.

I frequently get asked what I eat for breakfast, and what people themselves should chose to indulge on upon breaking the fast, so that’s what this post is for- a bit of yummy inspiration.

These photos are some of my favourite morning meals that I’ve feasted on in the past year and documented through Instagram. I’d really love to hear what you all eat for breakfast too so feel free to leave me with your own ideas for me to try!

1) Preheat the oven to 200C and line a baking tray with parchment paper.

2) In a bowl, toss in the grapes and pour over the balsamic and honey. Make sure they’re all coated.

3) Evenly spread the grapes in a single layer on the baking tray. Roast for 15/20 minutes until they start to ooze and burst slightly.

RECIPE SLIGHTLY ADAPTED FROM WHAT SHOULD I EAT FOR BREAKFAST TODAY?

  • 1/4 cup wholemeal flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • tablespoon dark chocolate cocoa powder
  • tablespoon brown sugar
  • tablespoon vegetable oil
  • teaspoon vanilla extract
  • tablespoons almond milk (or milk of choice)
  • pinch of salt

1) Mix together all of the ingredients in a bowl until smooth.

2) Heat a pan over a medium heat and spoon in the batter. The amount you spoon in depends on how big you want your pancakes to be but I like a big stack so I made about 5/6 from mine.
