With brunch season in full swing along with spring, we’ve collected our favourite weekend brunch ideas for you! From a healthy whole grain granola to lemon ricotta cake, there’s something here for everyone, and every type of brunch. So whether you want to make something special for mother’s day, or an upcoming long weekend, or just because, we’ve got you covered.
This asparagus and goat cheese frittata is the perfect make-ahead brunch food. It’s quick, tasty, and easy. Try making this frittata the day ahead then heating it up the next morning for a speedy option.
This dutch baby, often known as a German pancake, is a thick oven-baked pancake with a soft centre and crispy, crunchy edges. With no sugar in the recipe itself and cherries baked into the batter, I’d even call it a healthy breakfast pastry to feed a crowd.
Surprisingly easy, these chocolate cinnamon rolls are the best of both worlds! Sweet cinnamon rolls filled with chocolate chunks, perfect for brunch baking.
This chocolate granola tastes like nutella, but healthy! Gratifyingly nutrient-dense and loaded with hearty whole grains, satisfying nuts, and healthy fats from unsweetened coconut flakes and coconut oil. It’s also lightly sweetened with a minimal amount of maple syrup.
This beautiful babka features layers upon layers of soft, sweet dough filled with sweet twists of cardamom flecked white chocolate – a perfect accompaniment to a morning cup of coffee.
Mix up the dough the night (or day) beforehand, and bake these sourdough bagels fresh for brunch! Served with a slightly sweet roasted garlic labneh, they’re a perfect addition to a weekend spread.
All butter pastry and the right size for little hands make these strawberry hand pies a nice option for brunch with kids. Filled with creamy mascarpone cheese, strawberries, and lime zest.
Another excellent overnight idea here, these overnight granola waffles are made with whole grain rye flour and sweet blueberries. Mix before bed, bake in the morning, no stress here!
Vegan scones make a beautiful afternoon tea inspired brunch. Try serving these with vegan cream and fresh fruit.
Made with whole grain flour and with a sneaky vegetable addition, serve these healthy chocolate muffins for breakfast and feel good about it! Chocolate should belong at every brunch table, right?
Take your weekend brunch over the top with this beautiful naked cake. Top with any seasonal fruits to serve this cake year round, but don’t forget the flowers!
Chocolate and raspberry are the perfect pairing, especially when combined with gluten free oat and almond flour in this pretty cake.
Because there should always be something distinctly savoury at brunch, and because the buckwheat cheddar base of this quiche is amazing. With a custardy yogurt filling, this is a real crowd pleaser.
These beautiful doughnuts are baked, not fried, making them both easier and a bit healthier for morning fare. Topped with a pretty pink icing for extra weekend brunch fun.
Serve this for a healthy brunch idea, or alongside one of the less healthy options in this collection (cake?!) to make it feel a bit more like morning food and less like dessert. Baking the grapefruit brings out natural sugars, and topped with coconut whipped cream, it’s an easy option that still feels fancy.
