Farmhouse Breakfast Week

Breakfast is the most important meal. Not only does it improve your mood and give you energy for the day but it can also help you to control your weight. Ideal for those of us trying to shred a few pounds in the new year!




Did you know?

50% of people skip breakfast at some point during the week
15% of people don't eat a morning meal at all
21% of people miss breakfast because they prefer to stay in bed
1 in 10 people skip breakfast to try to lose weight yet research suggests breakfast helps to maintain a healthy weight
59% are unaware of the health benefits breakfast provides



Farmhouse Breakfast Week runs from 26th January - 1st February and is a great campaign to promote the importance of breakfast for you and your family. Getting up just a few minutes earlier each day to prepare something to eat could really help you to concentrate better and lower stress levels - it's definitely worth having some toast, cereal or a delicious alternative each morning.





Ingredients

75g plain flour 
50g wholemeal plain flour 
1 large egg 
350ml semi-skimmed milk 
100g granola 
2 tbsp rapeseed oil 
Fruit
Honey


Method
  • Place the flours in a large bowl and whisk in the egg, then gradually whisk in the milk to form a batter.  Stir in the granola.
  • Heat a little oil in an 18cm based frying pan and add a ladle of the batter until the base is covered.  Cook for 1 minute or until golden, flip over and cook the same on the other side.  Repeat to make 8 pancakes and keep them warm separated by squares of baking parchment.
  • Fill the pancakes with the fruit of your choice and a drizzle of honey then fold into quarters.
  • Scoff!

  2. I love a full English breakfast. Don't often have them, so when I do it's great. I don't, usually, then have to eat until the evening.

  3. I have toast for breakfast during the week and sometime treat myself to a bacon sandwich at the weekend. I love fruit salad but don't have it often because I it doesn't stay fresh for long
