I’m usually the type of person who likes big hearty breakfasts consisting of full platters with tofu scramble, toast, sausage, pancakes, etc.- so getting me to indulge in a ‘healthy’ breakfast isn’t always appealing to me.  One of the only things that gets me are these broiled grapefruits with rosemary maple glaze & a side of vegan yogurt & granola.  It’s so sweet and tangy, with those slight herbaceous notes from the rosemary & is the perfect breakfast.  Plus it makes me feel super fancy which isn’t all bad, haha.

This recipe truly couldn’t be any easier.  First you’ll need to preheat your broiler to its hottest setting.  Then grease (using coconut oil) a baking dish / tray big enough to hold 4 halves of grapefruit.  Cut your grapefruits in half, and then slice off a small amount of the flesh on the opposite side to create a flat shelf so that when you stand your grapefruits up they don’t roll around.  Place them in your baking tray / dish while you get your glaze ready.


For the glaze, add your maple syrup, cinnamon, finely chopped fresh rosemary, and sea salt to a bowl & mix until completely combined.  Pour 3/4 of the mix over top of your grapefruit halves evenly, then place them in the oven on the middle rack (you don’t want them incredibly close to the broiler itself because then they’ll burn before having a chance to caramelize properly) for 10-15 minutes.  Halfway through the cooking time, add your remaining 1/4 of the glaze over top the grapefruits.  Just keep an eye on them, when everything looks golden brown & caramelized on top, they’re good to go.  Take them out of the oven and allow to cool for 2-3 minutes before transferring them to a plate.  I like to serve them with vegan yogurt & granola (and some warm tea too), but that’s all up to you!

This recipe is truly so easy to put together in the morning, and really lives up to the hype, I promise.

Rosemary Maple Broiled Grapefruit

These Broiled Ruby Red Grapefruits infused with Rosemary Maple Glaze are the perfect sweet & light breakfast.  


  • 2 ruby red grapefruits
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp fresh rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • small pinch of sea salt


  1. Preheat your broiler on the hottest setting. 

  2. Spray a baking dish with coconut oil to prevent sticking.  Cut your grapefruit in half, and then trim the bottom side of the flesh slightly so that they stand up without rolling over. Place them in your baking dish. 

  3. Combine your maple syrup, finely chopped fresh rosemary, ground cinnamon, and sea salt in a bowl until completely smooth. 

  4. Pour 3/4 of the mixture evenly over the grapefruits, and then place under the broiler for 10-15 minutes (on the middle rack, not super close to the broiler). 

  5. Halfway through the cooking time, brush the remaining syrup overtop the grapefruits.  You want to broil them until everything has caramelized on the top.  You can alternatively (carefully) do this with a handheld torch as well if you don't have a broiler.  

  6. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 2-3 minutes.  Transfer to a plate & (optionally) serve with vegan yogurt & granola.
