Top 3 Summer Favourites

It's been a while since my last favourites post so I thought I'd pick my top 3 favourites I have been using constantly the last couple of months. I'm calling this my summer favourites but I'm still not sold on London having had a real summer yet! Have a great Bank Holiday weekend and here goes with my favourites.

Bank Holiday Brunch Menu

With the last Bank Holiday of the year approaching (apart from Christmas of course) why not indulge in some miniature savoury bites and sweet treats. Start the day right and treat your loved ones with an impressive yet simple brunch.

Don't worry if you are short for time as most of this can be pre bought or requires little preparation.

Here are some of my ideas for the perfect brunch!

Healthy Banana Ice Cream

Ice cream is another one of my favourites, great for topping puddings, like my Apple & Cinnamon Oat Crumble but equally great by itself on a summers day.
This is definitely not an All Hans-on original as there are recipes all over the internet but it's such a good healthy alternative, I couldn't resist sharing it. I'll also be showing you how you can create Chunky Monkey Ice Cream from this basic recipe.

Apple & Cinnamon Oat Crumble

Now apple crumble has to be, hands down, one of my top 5 puddings!!

So I was gutted to think that I would have to cut down if I was serious about eating healthier but I knew there must be a way to still enjoy this delicious pudding, and there is...
Oat Crumble! 
With less sugar and butter but still packed with all the flavour of a great apple crumble.

As am sure you can tell but oats are a running theme in these healthy recipes. This is because they are a great source of fibre which is further boosted by the apples and blueberries and they are so versatile, not just for breakfast!

Greek Yoghurt and Granola Parfait

For my final healthy breakfast in the series is this lovely fresh parfait, it's perfect for those warm summer mornings. Today I will be sharing with you my simple cinnamon pecan granola recipe and how I pair it with greek yoghurt and berries to make this healthy and nutritious breakfast.

Granola is simply toasted oats which you can add you choice of nuts, dried fruit, spices or even chocolate to. This is much cheaper than buying in the supermarket and this way means you will know exactly what is going in to your granola.
