Is it breakfast? Or is it lunch? No, it’s brunch! If you’re throwing a brunch for friends and fam, but you’re at a loss on what to serve, let us help you out with a little fall-flavored inspiration. Not only are every single one of these recipes terrific tasting, but they also offer a wee health kick too. And what’s better than a brunch dish that’s both good and good for you?
Sweet corn is a fall season staple and what better way to feature it than with a Sweet Corn Quiche in Teff Crust? This dish uses fresh corn kernels, onions, eggs, shredded gouda cheese for the filling, along with a dash of hot sauce to taste. We use our very own teff flour to make a homemade crust and you can sprinkle minced green pepper on the top and place slices of cherry tomatoes around the edges for visual effect. Once it’s oven-ready, let it bake for about 45 minutes. Making quiche for brunch is great because it’s one of those dishes you can serve at room temperature without sacrificing taste or quality.
There’s nothing that goes with a steaming cup of coffee better than a good pumpkin bread. This version is not only gluten free, but it’s also loaded with nutrients and packed with flavor and texture. We use Gluten Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour, mixed with brown sugar, coconut or avocado oil, eggs and canned pumpkin with a couple of teaspoons of vanilla to add subtle flavor. Cinnamon and nutmeg complete the flavor profile and we use organic chia seed, brown flaxseeds and pumpkin seeds (otherwise known as pepitas), to blanket the top with a layer of crunch. Bake until brown with a firm center, let it cool, then divvy it up to your guests paired with a hot cup of coffee. We’re ready to wager this brunch treat won’t last long at all!
Everyone likes pancakes, and these Sweet Potato Pancakes make a beautiful fall addition to your brunch menu. You can make your own sweet potato puree by baking a couple sweet potatoes until soft and then mashing them up. We use our Paleo Baking Flour and Organic Coconut Sugar for this recipe, along with ingredients like ground cinnamon, ginger, cloves and pure maple syrup for that fall feel. Cook them in a skillet like you would any other pancake, top them with your favorite fall toppings like pomegranate seeds, maple syrup and coconut whipped cream, then dig in. Or try topping them with berries or chopped pecans. There are no rules with pancakes, as long as they taste like heaven.
If pancakes aren’t your thing, why not whip up a batch of homemade Apple Cider Donuts? These gems are gluten-free because of our Gluten Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour and are filled with the warm flavors of fresh nutmeg, cinnamon and pumpkin spice. We use baking powder to help give them a nice rise and butter, sugar and apple cider completes the flavor smorgasbord. These donuts are so sweet and satisfying, even picky kids won’t be able to resist them.
These steel-cut oats are a complex blend of sweet and savory, but so simple to make you’ll be slightly amazed. Be sure to make extra to save for later, because we happen to think that oats warmed up the next day are even better than when they’re made fresh! Although your brunch guests might not want to share. We use gently browned sliced pears and plenty of butter to make this dish, along with white balsamic vinegar, coarsely chopped pistachios and maple syrup. Serve it up with a side of milk or cream, topped with some chopped nuts and pears for garnish. This fall brunch recipe really hits the spot!
See? Throwing a brunch bash can be exciting when you have plenty of options. These recipes will complement any fall gathering and maybe even carry you into the Christmas season, too! We hope you enjoy each and every one.
