There aren’t too many breakfasts that tick all the ‘health’ boxes while also delivering the goods on the flavour front. These spiced baked beans buck the trend delivering a ton of flavour alongside a healthy dose of:

  • Fibre
  • Protein
  • Vegetables
  • Healthy fats

The above factors also guarantee it’s going to be a breakfast that keeps you full well through the morning. Good for a weekend fry up or even double the recipe and have a few ready to reheat for a quick weekday option.
