For a flavour-packed, gluten-free breakfast, you can’t beat these crispy rice pancakes – they’re the ultimate healthy breakfast idea. Crispy rice pancakes are topped with gently spiced chickpeas, coconut salsa and a perfectly poached egg. What a combo!

Omelettes are the ideal breakfast dish, ticking all the boxes for being quick, easy, delicious and healthy. This recipe packs your silky smooth egg wrap with lovely Mexican-inspired flavours, including a good splash of lime and Tabasco – it’s an excellent way to get your taste buds fired up for the day!

Couscous doesn’t only have to be savoury – it actually makes a beautifully tasty and easy healthy breakfast recipe. When mixed with dried fruits, nuts and spices; and served with seasonal fruit; it’s utterly delicious. Just add warm milk.

Packed full of protein and fibre, this is one healthy breakfast option you’ll keep coming back to. We use a tin of cannellini beans here, but you can use any tin of plain beans you have in your cupboard. Pile your egg, tomato and bean mixture onto a plate, and serve with toast and ricotta.

Get ready for a taste and texture sensation! Cooked black rice is blitzed with hazelnut milk, banana and vanilla extract, then topped with mango purée and finished with toasted hazelnuts and coconut. So good. Make up a batch, then enjoy it through the week for super-quick healthy breakfasts.

It’s difficult to believe that chocolate could ever be part of a healthy breakfast, but this recipe really is, and will go down a storm with little ones! The secret is using quality cocoa powder: it gives this porridge that lovely chocolaty goodness, without all the sugar and sat fat from actual chocolate. You’re welcome.

These pancakes are a delicious way to use up any leftover roasted squash. Flavoured with rosemary and Parmesan, and on the table in 15 minutes flat, they’re ideal if you’re looking for a speedy option. A savoury breakfast – or brunch – of champions!

Juicy, sweet pineapple is a good source of the mineral manganese, which is one of the nutrients our bodies need to keep our metabolic systems healthy. In this recipe it’s caramelised, then layered up with fresh pancakes, natural yoghurt and toasted nuts. Give it a go!

Yes, these doughnuts really are healthy! Not to mention utterly delicious. Wholewheat doughnuts are cooked and toasted, then blueberries are added and cooked until jammy – they not only add a vibrant pop of colour, but also give us a vitamin C boost. Finished with a swirl of yoghurt and a dusting of cinnamon, this is one special breakfast.

When you know how easy – and tasty – it is to make your own cereal, you’ll never look back! And this is sure to be the recipe that persuades you to give a go. Make a big batch of this mix-and-match cereal, then store it for up to four weeks. It’s a perfect option for busy weekday mornings.

This innovative way of poaching your eggs with herbs and salmon is a great trick to have up your sleeve and gives this dish so much flavour. The herby eggs are then served on toast with spinach, for a delicious and nutrient-rich breakfast.

Bold and super-easy to whip up, this healthy breakfast is so good. By charring the veg, you add so much flavour (for so little effort), and when finished off with coddled eggs and cottage cheese, it’s a real star. Plus, it’s gluten-free!

We bet Popeye would be a big fan of this healthy breakfast! Spinach (super-high in vitamin K, which we need to keep our bones strong and healthy) is blitzed with ham and eggs, then baked on top of toast to make this vibrant dish. When enjoyed with the roasted tomatoes and fried egg, it’s oh-so good!

This fruity pancake batter is perfect for vegans and people who are sensitive to gluten. Ready in just 30 minutes – or whip up a batch the night before and store in the fridge until you’re ready – these pancakes are a super-tasty start to your day.

Spice up your life from the get-go with this breakfast/brunch dish. It’s a riot of colour, spices, texture and flavour; making it a brilliant way to start your day. In fact, using up any leftover roasted veg, it’s the perfect Monday morning option.

Overnight oats are such a satisfying breakfast, and can be made in batches to save you time. Sweet apple and pear lift the soft overnights, while cinnamon and Granola Dust give it amazing flavour. A healthy breakfast idea that’s really easy to try!

Porridge is always a brilliant option when it comes to picking a healthy, hearty and versatile breakfast. We know our classic combinations of apple and blackberry; banana almond and cinnamon; and apple, pecan and maple syrup all hit the spot, but use whatever toppings you fancy that morning.

Five ingredients, 15 minutes and you’ve got pancakes on the table! American-style fluffy pancakes work so well for this recipe as they can hold the blueberries and absorb the gorgeous juices. So satisfying, especially at breakfast! Watch Jamie make his One-cup pancakes with two of his daughters, Poppy and Daisy:

This breakfast recipe looks like a treat, but it’s actually packed with fruit, nuts and spices that all contribute to good health. It’s seriously special – with hits of tartness from the raspberries, a beautiful ripple of spice from the nutmeg and cinnamon, and a good crunch from lovely pistachios.

We couldn’t have a breakfast list without avocado toast! But this recipe gives it a little twist, loading up rye bread with a good spread of ricotta, plus tomato, lemon, pine nuts and basil; as well as beautifully ripe avocado. It’s the easiest breakfast that tastes like perfection on a plate.

Blend together beautiful tropical fruits with coconut milk, oats, chia seeds and more good stuff that helps keep us healthy to create this wonderfully vibrant breakfast. It feels like a real refreshing treat on a warm morning, but without any of the processed sugars you might expect.
