Healthyish

Sometimes in the morning, you need to wake up and set yourself for a productive day. This is where you will need a nutrition-packed breakfast to put you on the right track. What’s better than making that breakfast delicious as well?

Honey much like maple syrup is sweet with a syrupy consistency and an amber-like colour which varies dependent on strength. However honey, especially raw honey provides serval important antioxidants and is believed to be up to 4.2 times higher whilst raw. Fresh mixed berries is a delicious match up with honey as they provide added additional sweetness and tartness.

Peanut butter is a sweet and nutty paste made from ground peanuts. It’s high in healthy fats, protein, vitamins B, magnesium & potassium! Combine this with some sliced banana and a small drizzle of chocolate sauce. Now you are in for a high protein breakfast treat! And if you are all about the peanut butter & jelly or jam combo, give that try!

Golden syrup or treacle as we call it in England is something quite similar to maple syrup. It is made by refining sugar cane. It has a very similar colour and sweetness to maple syrup however tends to be slighter thicker,

Nutella is a delicious hazelnut chocolate spread. This is probably the most popular pancake topping in Europe! Add some strawberries alongside it to balance it and you are halfway to heaven.
