Autumn is a time for eating well, getting your sustained energy release type of food and indulging a little more than you usually would. My top 3 healthy Autumn breakfast recipes to help keep your energy levels up and help you stay warm.
Autumn is beautiful, don’t get me wrong, with the parks covered in amber foliage and the cool wind rustling through the air with dancing fallen leaves. But I just cannot shake off that cold feeling, you know, the sort when you feel like your fingers are about to drop off, you cannot feel your toes any longer and your blanket scarf no longer shields you from the cold.
I have come up with three Winter aka Autumn breakfast recipes to help warm your soul and give you that little bit of extra energy to help you get through your day.

My top three healthy Autumn saver breakfast recipes.
1-A hearty bowl of porridge (sustained energy release)
- Half a cup of oats
- 1 cup of almond milk
- 2 tsp of maple syrup
- 1 banana
- 1tsp of almond/peanut butter
- dashes of sunflower seeds, coconut shavings and chia seeds
Heat your milk with the almond butter so it melts and add the oats with maple syrup and simmer for about 5 minutes. Pour into your bowl and sprinkle on your toppings. I have just discovered a low sugar chocolate sauce which I like to drizzle on top.
2-Eggs and avocado (protein load and healthy fats )
- 2 eggs
- 1 mushroom
- a handful of spinach
- half-1 avocado
Saute your mushrooms in some coconut oil and add your two cracked eggs and mix into a scrambled egg. Layer on the spinach leaves on a plate and top with the egg and chopped avocado
3-Banana pancakes (because pancakes are pancakes)
- 1 banana
- 1 egg
- a pinch of baking soda
- 1 tsp of ground flaxseed
- fruit and maple syrup
Mash your banana in a bowl, add the rest of the ingredients minus the maple syrup and fruit and beat together. Heat a little coconut oil in pan and make your pancakes. Top with whatever you fancy, fruit, almond butter, chocolate, or even some sugar to sweeten things up a little.
