Made by adding dark cocoa, cinnamon, pinch of cayenne, and vanilla to chia oats, then topping with some pomegranate, lots of crunchy cacao nibs and some graze Active Nutrient Blend. Give these oats a try…it’s great excuse to eat chocolate for breakfast!

sweet potato 2

loaded sweet potato toast

We love sweet potatoes, but never thought about them as a breakfast food until our grazer Christine had the delicious idea to use sweet potato as toast! Not only do these look even prettier than regular toast, they offer more nutritional benefits and are a tasty, easy way to eat more fruits and vegetables.

pumkpin pie oats

If you've got any leftover pumpkin, we sure know where you can put it! In guest blogger Mairi's delicious pumpkin pie oats recipe - what a seasonal way to start the day.

I had a lonely piece of baked pumpkin in the fridge so used it to make this pumpkin pie porridge after my workout this morning. It was really delicious! I drizzled with Fruit Syrup from and topped it with pecan nuts, pumpkin seeds and chunks of pumpkin. It will keep me going for hours!

beans 6

snazzy beans

These beans are the perfect addition to a boiled or poached egg breakfast with a serving of greens or as a Sunday night sat in front of the telly with your feet up feast!

You can make snazzy beans as snazzy and as spicy as you like but the recipe here gets it just right.

In all my days of snazzy bean making I’ve also added olives, sundried tomatoes, fresh coriander and parsley and so many other in the fridge ingredients but this is the basic recipe for you and you can add to it as you please!

oatmeal 7

crock pot steel cut oats

Making sure the whole family eats a healthy and balanced meal each morning as opposed to the toast or cereal is really important to guest blogger Christine. Enter these oats.

Banoffee pie topped my steel cut oats with peanut butter and a couple of almond thins to jump start my morning after Monday kicked my ass!

If you don't have enough time to make a proper breakfast it's still important that you grab something in the morning. Try one of our protein flapjacks, each one handbaked with whole oats and a source of protein and fiber.
