We all know that a good breakfast can help start our day on the right foot—but truth be told, there's another a.m. meal that can also sneak a bunch of nutrients into the mix without sacrificing flavor. Yes, I'm talking about brunch. But, contrary to popular belief, breakfast's fancier cousin is not just about eggs, bacon, and sugar-laden French toasts. The proof? This healthier brunch recipe!

Packed with antioxidants, healthy fats, and energy-boosting carbs, these mascarpone and berry croissants are here to take your brunch game to a whole new level. So, if you are ready to sweeten your Sunday mornings without sacrificing your healthy-eating goals, put the Belgian waffles aside, and say hello to these yummy croissants. You won't regret it!

      Yum!! Warm croissants straight out of the oven!

      That sounds p-e-r-f-e-c-t!

      My guess is they will skyrocket the entire dish.

      Well, I can't wait to hear how this combo turned out for you.

      Thank you for your suggestion and kind comments!

      Yummy! I bet these brunch treat delicious just they way how it looks! I love fresh raspberries. However, your recipe has given me a wonderful idea. I was thinking to make the croissant from scratch again. Homemade croissant with mascarpone and raspberries. Thank you for sharing this, Kyriaki.

      First off, I'm uber glad to hear that this recipe will be your go-to choice on such an important occasion (I mean, visiting your wife).

      Secondly, I can say with confidence that she'll ❤️ it 'cause it's both sweet & creamy (is there a better combo for a dessert?).

      And lastly, it's super easy to make, so there's no need to spend lots of time on prepping (consider this a bonus!).

      OK I''m going to go visit my wife next week so I will make this for her. I don't have a sweet tooth at all but she LOVES deserts and treats so I am sure that she will enjoy trying this too.
