Sunday Brunches are one of our favorite meals. After an action-packed weekend, unwinding with a nice brunch makes you feel prepared for the week ahead. Sunday breakfasts or brunches can also be a great way for people to get together and enjoy a nice meal. Many brunches will feature foods like cinnamon rolls, scones, and muffins. All of these foods are delicious, but not necessarily healthy. However, there are many recipes that you can make for your Sunday brunch that are just as delicious, but also healthy.
Healthy Brunch Recipes
Consisting of eggs, veggies, meat, and cheese, you can’t go wrong with a breakfast casserole. Breakfast casseroles are very easy to make and there are endless variations in how they can be made. For most breakfast casseroles all you have to do is toss eggs and your desired ingredients into a casserole pan and stick it in the oven. We recommend including eggs, veggies, and meat so you start out your day with lots of protein and fiber. This breakfast casserole is easy to make and very healthy. It is keto and whole 30 so it will definitely fit into your diet.
Pancakes are a staple breakfast and brunch item. Warm fluffy pancakes with hot melted butter and sweet liquid syrup on top, who can resist? Unfortunately, many people deprive themselves of pancakes because they are usually low in protein and high in carbs and sugar. Healthy eaters have no reason to not include pancakes into their Sunday breakfast or brunch because there are so many ways to make healthy, delicious pancakes. One very popular way to make healthy pancakes is to make them with bananas. Banana pancakes can be made with just 3 simple ingredients: bananas, eggs, and baking powder. These pancakes will taste great and have way less calories than traditional pancakes. Another method to make pancakes healthier is to substitute butter or oil in the batter for Greek yogurt. This will eliminate some of the fat and add a bit of protein to your pancake.
Muffins, like pancakes, are delicious, but they have a bad reputation for being unhealthy. To make healthy muffins for your Sunday breakfast or brunch, there are two different options. You could make muffins with oats and whole wheat flour, or you could make egg muffins. The muffins with oats and whole wheat flour will taste like traditional muffins, but they are filled with fiber and will keep you fuller throughout the day. Egg muffins are keto and whole 30 and provide a good way to get your morning protein boost. Although egg muffins are not a pastry muffin, they are still made in a muffin tin which is why we’re still referring to them as muffins.
