Hazelnut & Chocolate Breakfast Puffs Recipe

Hazelnut & Chocolate Breakfast Puffs Recipe

I love hosting dinner parties. But organising brunch on a cosy Sunday is my absolute favourite. And what can make a delicious brunch even better apart from a batch of freshly ground coffee? Some homemade pastries of course! It has been ages since I’ve last come up with a recipe. So it was definitely time for another one here on Ella Was Here. This easy Hazelnut & Chocolate Breakfast Puffs recipe is perfect for a weekend brunch!

I don’t know about you, but whenever I have visitors over for Sunday brunch, I tend to go a bit overboard. As much tasty food as possible! These breakfast puffs are incredibly easy to make and you don’t need to spend a lot of time preparing the ingredients, ideal for one of my brunch parties!


On to the recipe . . .

if you have seen my previous recipe,  a Petit Beurre Cookie Cake, you’ll know that I am a huge fan of chocolate. Any excuse to add chocolate to something, I’ll take. And a good breakfast pastry, is as good as any! For this recipe, apart from chocolate, you’ll need: puff pastry, raisins, honey, an egg and hazelnuts. And don’t forget to preheat the oven before you start preparing the ingredients. This is a super quick recipe, so you’ll be done in no time!

I am now going to go and enjoy some more of these pastries with a good cup of coffee. They are perfect when served hot, but they also taste great the day after. So you don’t have to eat them all at once (even though I probably will).

Don’t forget to send me pictures if you end up trying this recipe!
