Preparing three meals a day (don’t forget the snacks!) can be so time-consuming – especially when you have the hungry mouths of kids and teenagers to feed too. So to make things easier we’ve put together a list of breakfast ideas and tips to take the stress out of your morning routine! This list includes the best overnight oats recipe, healthy brekkie bites, pikelets and more – each made with the sweetness of nourishing Capilano Bioactive Manuka Honey… enjoy!
The beautiful thing about pikelets is that they’re quick, easy to make and can be topped with a bounty of different flavours and textures. Mornings are a rush? Simply prep the pikelets ahead and refrigerate! Like the rest on this list, this easy breakfast recipe is made with Active Manuka Honey for a better-for-them take on the classic.
BREKKY TIP: Encourage your kids to wake up earlier, and make time for family in the morning. It’s a wonder what an extra 20-30 mins in the morning can do! Plus it’ll ensure they’re awake, switched on and ready for the day before they walk out the door.
Kids aren’t into breakfast? They'll change their minds in a flash after just one bite into these balls of creamy choc-caramel. Sweetened with nourishing, Bioactive Manuka Honey and dates for added goodness - this meal prep breakfast option is also nut-free, winning!
BREKKY TIP: Make breakfast prep a fun Sunday afternoon activity. Get your kids excited about their morning meal by getting them involved in the planning process. If they selected the recipe and helped put it together – they’re more likely to be motivated to enjoy their tasty creations!

Want to make something special? Cut the time in half by using pre-made Golden Crumpet rounds. All it takes is 10 minutes more to make them into a beautiful French-toast flavoured brekky. Keep the berry coulis in the fridge and heat it on cool mornings... don't forget an extra drizzle of Manuka Honey!
BREKKY TIP: Have some store-bought Golden Crumpets or Golden Pancakes in the freezer ready to go! Whether your teens make themselves a stack of pancakes on the weekend, or you just need to drizzle some Manuka Honey on a crumpet in the morning – you know they’ll be satiated!

BREKKY TIP: Store prep-ahead breakfasts (like this one) in Tupperware containers in the fridge. If there’s no time to spare in the morning, you or the kids can always take it with them!

The good fats, creamy taste and vibrant hue of avocado will brighten anyone’s day, but why not mix things up with a sweet-savoury-fiery twist. One bite of the fetta, chilli and manuka combination on your regular avo toast and you’ll be coming back for a second slice….
Nothing says comfort like a big bowl of warming porridge. Sometimes it’s the simple things that lift us up and feel our best in the morning like the simple flavours of creamy oats and golden honey. Whether you make yours from quick oats sachets, or the classic stovetop method, or even superfood-packed versions like our Rolled Oat, Quinoa and LSA porridge, simply add a squeeze of bioactive Manuka honey to feel an even healthier buzz in the morning.
TIP – leftover porridge can be stored in an airtight contained and chilled for up to 2 days. Simply add back to saucepan with additional milk to recreate creamy texture.
