Eat well for breakfast

These easy rustic fruit bread rolls are fabulous for breakfast.  This is a healthy breakfast recipe idea that you will enjoy repeatedly.  I have made variations of these fruit bread rolls over the years as I love it so much and importantly, my toddler wolves this down without a fuss.

It’s packed with wholesome ingredients providing your family with fibre – starting with the whole grain flour, mixed dried fruit, seeds, milled flaxseeds and goji berries.  It’s a perfect nourishing breakfast recipe for kids on the go.

Control added sugar and salt

There’s added sugar in the recipe you say.  Yes there is and we chat more about sugar in my article The Sugar Trap, but remember, the idea isn’t to eliminate sugar from the diet but to minimise intake.

Three tablespoons of sugar or honey aren’t going to be a problem when divided over ten rolls.  For a no added sugar solution, simply substitute for more dried fruit.

What’s brilliant about baking your own bread is that you really are in control of the amount of added sugar and salt.

Milk free variation

What I love about this recipe is that for a dairy or milk free variation, simply substitute the milk with warm water.

Flavour explosion

To vary the flavours, choose from a variety of dried fruit including currants, raisins, mango and cranberries.

For a flavour explosion, throw in a variety of different spices into these easy fruit bread rolls.  Ground ginger and fresh pear could be a lovely variation.

Remember, you can get lots of flavour from using quality ingredients.  Waitrose’s signature spice was an awesome find but use your favourite spices such as ground cloves or cinnamon.  Or simply throw in additional mixed spice if you prefer to keep it simple.


This recipe is a vege-way to get your daily source of omega-3 fatty acids.  The best source of this heart healthy fat is oily fish which is rich in DHA and EPA (collectively known as omega-3 fatty acids).

Plant oils and seeds such as flaxseeds contain ALA, which is another type of omega-3 fatty acid.  The human body can convert ALA to  DHA and EPA to some extent.
