Breakfast is, hands down, my favorite meal of the day. If I could, I would eat breakfast food all day. But since that would be sort of weird, I try to make the best of my favorite meal. However, Since I’m also really avid of healthy eating and low calorie recipes, I’m always looking for new dishes that combine those two requirements: healthy and delicious. With that being said, I’m going to show you my three favorite breakfast recipes that I honestly do all the time.
1. Oats and banana pancakes
This is the.best.thing.ever!! When I first made them, which was during Christmas break, I kid you not, I made them every single day.
1. 1 large banana (if the banana is small, i usually use one banana and a half)
2. 1/4 of a cup of oats
3. 2 eggs
Put the oats in a blending cup. Then add the banana cut in 3 or 4 pieces and finally add the two eggs. Blend it with a blender and voilà, you have your batter.
Apply some olive oil to your pan so it doesn’t stick (but not much!! I usually just pour a bit and then spread it with a tissue). Put the batter in the pan in small circles (normally I can form 2 or 3 circles of batter at the same time) so you can stack them after, like I did in the picture. Wait until it starts getting bubbly on top to flip it. However, don’t overcook them as they taste better slightly undercooked .
Stack them in a plate and chop a kiwi on the side. To keep it healthy, choose honey as the topping. I usually heat up the honey a 3 or 5 seconds so it gets a little bit more runny.
Ohh the good old oats! Such a stable.
This is a quite simple oat recipe for when you’re on the go but still want to treat yourself.
3. 1 yogurt (to your liking)
4. 1 Banana
5. All bran cereal
Put the oats in a bowl and then add enough water so the oats can cook. Microwave them until the water disappears. Then add the yogurt (I usually add a low fat blackberry and raspberry one) and chop the banana (kiwi or raspberries also go great with this recipe). To give it a crunchy feel, all a handful of all bran cereal and you’re good to go.
3. Overnight oats
This is perfect if you’re not a morning person and you just want to wake up and have something ready right way.
2. Soy milk (or regular milk if you prefer)
3. 1 yogurt
Place the amount of oats you want in a bowl and them pour enough milk to cover all the oats. Then add your desired yogurt, mix everything with a spoon, add the chia seeds and place it in the fridge. In the morning all you need to do is take it out, chop a banana or any other fruit of your preference (you can also add it to the oatmeal the night before) and if you want a crunchy feel, add a handful of healthy cereals, like all bran cereals.
