Morning Rituals & The Dreamiest Autumnal Breakfast

Sainsburys Home Printmakers Throw

Uuuugh I do love an early autumn morning. Soft sunshine, bright blue skies, a lil nip in the air. Ooo bebeh ? Must admit, it is getting harder to pull myself outta the warm duvets each day. Why does bed feel 12938x more cosy in the morning ey?

I have pushed the boat out just a smidge recently to up the cosiness in our boudoir. Fresh autumnal candles from mi love TK Maxx (so cheap, so good), cosy cushions, fairy lights and this absolute hun of a throw from Sainsbury’s Home.?

It is warm, cosy, ma fave colour and it has pom poms (ALWAYS a winner).

Also this plate of sexy breakfast goodness… ?

I’m gonna be honest, I had my heart set on whipping up Pinterest inspired cinnamon swirl pancakes… Like these babies. Buuuuut it didn’t go quite to plan so I had to improvise. Ya know what? I think I prefer this creation… Super easy to whip up as a lil mid-week treat.

Toast with a thick layer of peanut butter topped with caramelised cinnamon banana. MmmHM.

It ain’t the healthiest of breakfasts, but ya gotta treat yo’self!

Chuck a knob of butter (lol, still makes me chuckle writing that) in a non-stick frying pan on a medium-high heat.

Once melted, sprinkle in a tablespoon of brown sugar and combine.

Carefully add in your sliced ‘nana. Sprinkle over cinnamon (as much or little as you like) and fry for around 30 secs. Using a spatula (or whatever utensil ya fancy) and flip the bananas to get an even caramel coating aaall over.

Make a fresh cuppa T, toast your bread, cover in PB and top with sweet, crispy banana…

Scurry back to bed and devour!

Embracing those few hours before work makes SUCH a massive difference to my day.

It feels good to have already achieved something before I start my day, whether thats a cheeky gym sesh or decent breaky (that ain’t my reg muesli).

  • Courtney Hardy

    I have been having a hard time getting out of my bed too!! I wish I didn’t have to get up for school every morning. But that sounds like the perfect morning. You can’t beat breakfast in bed with duvet reading.

    • Yes it is so hard haha, just so so lovely and cosy at the moment! It was so nice… I always find my day is so much more productive when I have had a chilled morning :) Immy x

  • My parents used to make me something similar but with plaintains as i dont eat banana. Yum.

    • Ooooh I absolutely LOVE plantain! We always pick em up from the market and have ’em as an additional component of a fry up! So tasty ?Immy x

  • This breakfast looks/sounds absolutely delicious, I must try it!

  • Amy Eade

    That breakfast really does look divine, I’m going to HAVE to try it! I love making a little bit of time for breakfast and a chill in the morning before work if I can. I love Sainsbury’s home, I just bought an orange throw from there (sounds gross, it’s not! haha)
    Amy xx

    • Yesyesss you should lass :) Maybe a nice lil weekend treat? I know me too! I hate starting my day feeling rushed and stressed… Although I always end up chillin’ for too long then being late anyway haha! Oooh that sounds really lovely ? Immy x

  • I really want to be more of an early bird, even if it is just reading my book or listening to the radio for half an hour before I get up! This looks delish I must say.

    Emma |

    • Yes, such a nice thing to do ? I have started listening to the radio each morning earlier this year and it is SO nice, my old school alarm clock used to wake me up with radio and it makes such a nice difference! Immy x

    • Thank you Holllyyyyy :) Immy x

    Jenny | LuxeStyle

    • Yes yessss me too! Trying to be more productive, think it is something about September that always gives me a little boost! Immy x

  • Your early mornings are seriously impressing me at the moment – I’ve been attempting them but dont seem to have managed much more than scheduling a few tweets then scrambling to get ready for work…need some of your super morning powers! Also definitely making this breakfast, anything PB & banana is fab with me, going to chuck in some dairy free butter instead of regular and I’ll be sorted wont I. Sounds like an actual dream xxx

    Sophie | Sophar So Good

    • Ah I don’t know what has come over me haha! At least ya manage to schedule tweets – I am SO useless at that haha! yesyesss dairy free butter and you are sawwteddd. Hope you are well lady :) Immy x

  • Nearly all of my favorite mornings consists of going right back to bed hehe. Personally I love being an early bird, but only if it’s to do blog things in the morning and not anything else LOL I find that I’m usually more excited in the morning than I am at night or midday?! In fact, I think my perfect morning would consist of waking up at 7 and replying to comments, commenting on blogs etc until 8:30 or 9 or so for breakfast. Unless my bf is here of course, then a lot of that time would be for snuggles :D

    becky @ star violet

    • Yes yessss same, I wish I could have done that this morning! SO ready for a lie in this weekend! Yes I always feel so motivated in the morning, cup of tea and a bit of blogmin before breakfast is perrrfect. But yes, if Matt is still around, aaaaaalways the snuggles lol! Immy x

  • Maria ????

    Girl these are some of the best blog photos I’ve ever seen! Your breakfast looks absolutely incredible and I can totally relate to loving those early hours: I can usually accomplish so much in the time after waking up and before leaving (although the struggle of leaving my bed when it’s cold in my room is real!!). Much love x

    • Ah Mariaaaa thank you so much! I was so happy with them – especially as it was super rushed before going to work haha! Yesyesss it is so good, always affects my productivity for the rest of my day :) Uggghhhh I know, it was almost impossible this morning haha! Immy x
