This breakfast creme brûlée is an easy recipe and a delicious way to enjoy your morning meal. Technically a crème brûlée is described as a dessert of custard topped with caramelized sugar. It’s known for its richness and decadence. A lot of countries claim to be the originator of the crème brûlée (France, England, and Spain, etc.), but what we do know is that it's been a popular dessert for more than one hundred years.

Luckily, with this recipe, you can indulge a bit more. It’s healthier than a classic crème brûlée, because it uses Greek yogurt and fruit preserves instead of the typical custard. Of course, with all crème brûlée, you will need a kitchen torch. This is such a pretty way to present breakfast…definitely something you’d want to serve your guests—they will be super impressed!



Assemble the Breakfast Crème Brûlée ahead of time and store them (wrapped with plastic) in the fridge. Leave them in the fridge until you are ready to serve them. Caramelize the sugar just before serving.

Use any berries you like (raspberries, strawberries, and blueberries). Mango and banana will also work.

For the topping, you can add granola, oatmeal, or a variety of nuts.

Use plain Greek yogurt, or if you prefer, sweetened vanilla yogurt.

For the best “brûlée” results, use turbinado sugar or dark muscovado sugar. To prevent the yogurt from heating up too much when you caramelize the sugar, you can leave them in the freezer for about 5 minutes before torching.

You can turn this into a dessert by using crushed biscuits like Oreos instead of granola and melted chocolate instead of fruit preserves.

Use full-fat plain Greek yogurt for best results.

For a keto-friendly caramelized topping, you can sprinkle keto-friendly sugar on top and use your torch to caramelize it.


How To Store Breakfast Creme Brûlée

The untorched Breakfast Crème Brûlée can be stored, covered with plastic wrap, in the refrigerator for 5 days before baking it.

Leftovers will keep the refrigerator for 4 days (make sure to keep it covered). The granola might soften over time.

How To Make Breakfast Creme Brûlée

Place the berries in a pan with the water and cook for 2-3 minutes until slightly softened.

Remove from the heat and add in the sugar.

Add in the lemon juice then allow to cool.

Mix together the Greek Yoghurt and the vanilla extract and set aside.

Take 4 ramekins and add the cooled berries to the bottom.

Then followed by a tablespoon of granola over the berries.

Now top off with the yogurt and flatten with a palette knife.

Sprinkle about two tablespoons of sugar over each ramekin dish and then using a blow torch caramelize the sugar.

Allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving.


You won’t be able to make the breakfast Creme Brûlée under the broiler, as the yogurt will melt.
