A National Day of Sleeping In should be declared to honour whoever thought of combining breakfast and lunch into the delicious super-meal that is brunch.
If you’re ready for brunch this weekend, we have four super delicious, super nutritious low-sugar brunch recipes for you to try. Invite your friends around and chuck a bottle of bubbles in the fridge!
Gluten Free Poached Pear and Blueberry Crumble
Dessert for brunch!? This one’s so delicious (and secretly healthy) you’d be crazy not to. Switch up the fruit to suit different seasons or different tastes (peach and raspberry anyone?) and serve with a dollop of crème fraiche for extra decadence.
Morning pancakes never tasted so sweet. Feeding a crowd? Make smaller pancakes in the pan at the same time, pile up on a pretty plate and top with our zingy Wild Berry Compote and sweet (but not sugary) Chantilly Cream. Brunch heaven!
For the savoury tooths among us, this healthy, tasty take on a classically rich dish will leave everyone feeling satisfied, not stuffed. Switch out the bacon for mushrooms if your catering for vegos.
High Protein Banana Bread
In need of a portable brunch treat? This soft, moist, naturally sweet banana bread packs up perfectly for a picnic or visit to a friend’s house – and also packs a secret protein punch, keeping everyone fuller for longer.
