Admittedly, breakfast tends to be my least balanced meal of the day. I like something hot and reasonably filling when I wake up, it’s just not a time of day when I generally enjoy fruit, vegetables or seeds. These are the breakfasts that work well for me.
It’s a classic! I love a soft boiled egg or two, and I buy my bread from the fantastic Wheat Free Bakery Direct (this farmhouse loaf is lovely).
This is more of a weekend breakfast as it takes a little more time to prepare; these pancakes are thicker Scotch-style pancakes and are great with butter, maple syrup or jam.
You can add sliced banana to the mixture to make a lovely, nutritious breakfast. Blueberries work well too. As does canned sweetcorn strangely.
- 4oz Dove’s GF SR flour
- 150ml lactose-free milk (I use Arla’s)
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil and more for frying
- Mix the flour, milk, egg and oil until you have a smooth batter
- Heat up a small amount of oil in a frying pan (medium heat) and then add large spoonfuls of batter.
- Heat until golden underneath, then flip and fry that side until golden
This is the quickest of the breakfasts I have. Again, bread is always thanks to Wheat Free Bakery Direct, and I choose peanut butter over a topping like jam as the protein keeps you full for longer. I always buy peanut butter with no sugar added as think it tastes great without. I’ve tried some of the 100% peanut butters, but I think a bit of oil, salt and a touch of stabiliser really do work wonders, and the Sunpat one is my personal favourite.
(Heinz UK have recently confirmed that the ‘flavourings’ in their ketchup doesn’t include garlic or onion, but I understand the ketchup they sell elsewhere does.)
