A Week in Sweet Breakfasts

Hey loves, before I can share my breakfast week with you, it’s important that I make a disclaimer: I am by no means a nutritionist, simply a big fan of sweet breakfast foods. Below are a list of sweet breakfasts I’ve been loving lately. They’re all super easy to make!

I keep making these because they’re just so delicious and simple, especially with bananas!

Homemade Nutella on Toast

 

You will need:

1 tbsp almond butter (I used crunchy and turned out lovely)
1/2 tsp cacao powder
1/2 – 1 tsp maple syrup
Toast

For toppings:

Strawberries, bananas, and almonds

 Directions:

1. Mix all ingredients.

2. Add to toast.

3. Top with bananas, strawberries or almonds (also yummy to have on the side). Almonds are great to dip in this sweet mix.

Enjoy 🙂

Have been my most repeated breakfast for a while. I just love making these, and usually serve it with either bananas or strawberries (and always, powdered sugar!)

French Toast

 

You will need:

1 egg

1 tsp ground cinammon

1 tbsp sugar

pinch of ground vanilla powder (or pure vanilla extract)

pinch of salt

1/2 cup milk of your choice (I used almond milk)

Toast, sandwich bread or French bread.

For serving:

Strawberries and bananas.

Powdered sugar and/or maple syrup

 Directions:

1. Mix all ingredients.

2. Add butter or oil of your choice to a frying pan. Cover your toast front and back with the mixture (better to not let it soak) and add it to the pan. Let it cook until small bubbles start to form, and flip it.

3. Serve with the toppings of your choice. I love adding bananas or strawberries and topping it with powdered sugar or maple syrup.

Enjoy 🙂

Definitely the most filling, it’s so hard to finish! But that could be just me, my fiancĂ© has no problem devouring this. It’s so nutritious and makes me feel good afterward.

Nutritious and Filling Banana Porridge 

 

You will need:

1/2 Cup Oats
1 Cup Almond Milk
Mashed banana
Cinnamon
2 tbsp chia seeds

For toppings:

Blueberry, strawberry, banana, coconut flakes, raisins and maple syrup.

Directions:

1. Add 1/2 cup oats + 1 cup almond milk + mashed bananas in your serving bowl. Add 2 tbsp chia seeds. Add cinnamon (to your taste). Mix.
2. Heat for 2 1/2 minutes.
3. Top with your favorite toppings. Drizzle maple syrup.

Enjoy 🙂

I get excited when I can add coffee to a recipe. This is very simple to make the night before, perfect for those rushed mornings or even a very chilled one.

Coffee Overnight Oatmeal

You will need:

1/2 cup (rolled) oats
2 tbsp chia seeds
1/2 cup brewed coffee

raw almonds
1 mashed banana
1/4 tsp cinnamon
pinch ground vanilla powder (or pure vanilla extract)

For toppings:

Blueberry, strawberry, banana, coconut flakes, raisins and maple syrup.

Directions:

1. Brew cup of coffee. Keep 1/2 cup for the recipe.
2. Add 1/2 cup of oats, 2 tbsp chia seeds, 1/2 cup of brewed coffee. Mix.

3. Add a pinch of ground cinnamon and vanilla, the mashed banana and almonds. Add maple syrup or honey. Mix well.

4. Add to mason jar (or bowl) and cover to let soak overnight in the fridge.

4. Next morning – top with berries of your choice. You can also add banana if you prefer. Drizzle maple syrup/honey!

Enjoy 🙂

 

Refreshing! So great to have on a hot summer’s day.

2. Pour into bowl. Layer with coconut flakes, strawberry, banana, chia seeds, almond flakes, granola and drizzle with honey or maple syrup.

Enjoy 🙂

I am personally obsessed with how this tastes. Certainly not the healthiest, but my day is just brighter after I’ve had these yummy mini towers of pancakes. They’re soooo good.

1/3 cup flour
1/3 cup milk

2. Then add (to the same bowl) flour (sifted), baking powder, vanilla. Mix
3. Add milk. Mix
4. Add butter to pan on low heat
5. Add two tbsp of pancake mix for each pancake. Let cook (cover) until bubbles start to form beneath the pancake, then flip! Repeat.
6. Serve with berries of your choice/bananas and maple syrup.

Enjoy 🙂

 

Banana Pancakes at IHOP

These were very fluffy, sure but I definitely enjoyed my pancakes a whole lot better. The bananas were a bit overwhelming in this mix and obviously, I couldn’t finish my portion (even though I got the 1/2 portion!). I let my little sister and brother have it.

I hope you enjoyed these easy to make recipes. If you loved them or have any Q’s, be sure to leave me a comment 🙂

With love,
