Breakfast- it’s supposedly the most important meal of the day, yet we often get it so wrong while we rush from our beds to our desks.

It doesn’t help that we are always being bombarded with new information- we should intermittently fast, we should eat breakfast, don’t eat carbs, eat some carbs but eat complex carbs, don’t eat processed food, avoid sugar, don’t eat bacon or don’t eat too much.

It can all become overwhelming and confusing. In general however, research suggests that a good balanced breakfast has positive results. Popular Science condensed this all into an informative article. If you are going to exercise in the morning, need a lot of energy at work (mental or physical) or are at risk for mid day unhealthy snacking breakfast is always a good idea.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make this using other citrus fruits?

Feel free to experiment with blood oranges, marsh grapefruits, pomelos and other large citrus!

Can I make the grapefruit and crumble the night before?

I wouldn’t advise making the grapefruit topped with crumble in advance, as the crumble would absorb the juices from the grapefruit. The crumble can be mixed up the night before and stored out of the fridge, in an airtight container, ready to go in the morning

Baked Sunrise Grapefruit Crumble

  • Author: Jess Bunn
  • Total Time: 15 Minutes
  • Yield: 1 Serving
  • Diet: Vegetarian


Citrusy, warming, creamy and crunchy, this baked grapefruit breakfast crumble is sunshiney deliciousness on a plate. 


  • 1 Sweet Sunrise Grapefruit, cut in half
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil or a light olive oil
  • 1 tsp maple syrup (this can be replaced with honey)
  • Salt

To Serve (optional)

  • Coconut yoghurt or coconut cream


  1. Split your grapefruit in half down the middle.
  2. Mix together the oats, coconut oil, sweetener and vanilla.
  3. Rub everything together until well incorporated, then add a very small pinch of salt to bring out the flavours.
  4. Spoon the crumble over the grapefruit and bake at 180C for 15 minutes, or until the crumble has crisped and the grapefruit is jammy and soft. Alternativly pop the grapefruit in your airfryer, on 160C for 6-8 Minutes. The time here will depend on your brand of air fryer.
  5. Serve immediately with a spoon of coconut yoghurt.


Chefs Tip: If you can’t be bothered to put the oven on in the morning to make these fresh, make the crumble spread in one layer on a baking paper-lined tray. Once lightly brown and crisp, pop the ready-made crumble in an airtight container to use throughout the week. You can bake all the crumble free grapefruit for the week and warm them as needed. Simple top the reheated grapefruit with crumble and you’re good to go.
