Banana & Apple Healthy Breakfast Muffins

Oh yes.

app

These banana and apple muffins are super easy, healthy, fun and most importantly delicious. A brag worthy rating of 8.84

I love to bake a large batch ( I double up on the recipe below) and pop them in the freezer. If I know I’ve got a busy day ahead, I’ll take some out to defrost the night before or microwave them in the morning for a hot delicious breakfast.

Healthy Breakfast Protein Waffles!

I LOVE waffles!

8

I’m a firm believer in making healthy eating enjoyable. You don’t have to give up your favourite foods to eat well and Lord knows I did not sign up for a life of regret and taste bud abuse. With a few clever tweaks, you can carry on eating your favourite meals that will have you smiling all the way to the gym. (Can’t guarantee smiles on the way back from gym depending on sesh)

These high protein vanilla breakfast waffles will have you wondering why I haven’t won a Nobel peace prize. The glorious combination of ingredients while maintaining a light and fluffy texture is truly ground breaking.

Of course, to make this you will need a waffle machine! I use this one! :

This waffle machine is THE BEST! Remove-able plates make it sooo easy cleaning! (As someone who has litteraly abandoned three waffle machines in the past due to too much maintenance effort, I can’t recommend this one enough. 5

LET’S GO!

Ingredients :

(Makes 8 waffles! That’s 4 breakfasts if you pop them in the freezer as a meal prep!)

  • 1 Cup Plain Flour
  • 1 Cup low fat greek yoghurt
  • 2 scoops (50g) vanilla whey protein powder
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 table spoons of honey
  • 2 table spoons of sunflower oil
  • 3 tablespoons of milk of choice ( I used semi-skimmed lactose free milk)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon of baking powder
  • Fry light spray
  • Optional – handful of frozen strawberries for compote
2
The smooth mix of greek yoghurt and protein powder! (Tastes great with granola too!)

Method:

  1. Mix the yoghurt and the protein powder until smooth
  2. Whisk the eggs loosely and add them to the protein yoghurt mix, along with the vanilla extract
  3. Sieve in the flour and baking powder
  4. Add in the honey, milk and sunflower oil (adjust amount of milk to preference)
  5. Heat up your waffle maker (light on the top goes red when hot)
  6. Sprits with some fry light spray
  7. Add in 1 ladle of mixture to each area (aim to cover the base! Make sure you push mix into the corners to stop your waffle looking deformed)
  8. Close BUT DO NOT LOCK the waffle maker! This allows the deliciously light and fluffy waffles to rise
  9. Heat until golden brown (4 to 7 minutes)

4Optional:

  • Microwave a handful of frozen strawberries for 1 minute
  • Mash them (sophisticated word for mash please?) with a fork
  • Pour on top of waffles for a deliciously sweet, sugar free compote

ENJOY!!

Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

Happy Sunday Beauties!

Today I bring you the perfect lazy Sunday Brunch Recipe – Pumpkin Spice Pancakes!

I came up with this delicious recipe sometime during January, after Starbucks stopped their seasonal drinks and the withdrawal symptoms kicked in.

These things are super lean, naturally sweet and so filling! The recipe makes 15 pancakes if you put two tablespoons of mix per pancake. Simply whip up the ingredients and use flight light spray to save on the oil! Feel free to skip out on the flour – it simple keeps the texture light and fluffy which I personally prefer (I’m a firm believer that carbs are not the devil).

Would LOVE to see your versions so be sure to tag me if you try them! Recipe and Nutrition info below! ❤ 1pcpnPSP

Chocolate Mocha Protein Breakfast Smoothie

Boy that’s a long name lol. I’m new to this so bare with ya gal 🙂

It’s no secret that I can often find myself running out of time in the mornings. Between gymming, praying, and slaying my face, I’m frequently left having to choose between a healthy breakfast a hearty instagram scroll.

 

Well, CHOOSE NO MORE, fellow late runners.

This 3 minute super quick breakfast will have you out the door in no time – and you can even take it with you! I absolutely adore this smooth creamy shake on days where I want something to grab and go.

 

YOU WILL NEED:

  1. One Banana
  2. Ice Cubes
  3. Coffee (1 to 3 teaspoons depending on your addiction level)
  4. 1 Tablespoon of baking cocoa powder (the real chocolatey stuff that tastes gross on its own)
  5. Nescafe mocha sachet (optional for extra mocha-y-ness)
  6. Hot Water
  7. 1 – 3 Table spoons of oats (optional for extra carbs)
  8. Milk (Almond, goat, soy – whatever you want. I use lactose free)
  9. 1 scoop of chocolate protein powder

WHAT TO DO

  1. Boil some water (a very small amount, like 1/5th of a cup. just enough to..) & dissolve the coffee and mocha sachet in the hot water
  2. Add your chopped banana, a handful of icecubes, a cup of milk, the oats, cocoa powder and scoop of protein powder to the blender
  3. Pour the silky coffee mocha blend into the blender
  4. Whiz it up and you’re legit done! It really is that easy!
  5. Ok and also add a cute straw for the gram

 

Super easy and so so delicious!

The banana gives it a natural sweetness while the low GI protein will keep you feeling full for longer.

The Beggel

ALAS

GATHER ALL YEE HUNGRY

ALL YEE LOVERS OF BRUNCH AND SUPERIORITY

LISTEN TO THIS HERE TALE OF A FOODIES DREAM COME TRUE

WIPE DOWN YOUR CAMERA LENSES

BRING YOUR WOODEN ARTSY FOOD BOARD

FOR THIS, DEAR FRIEND,

IS ONE FOR THE GRAM. 

 

So a while ago I (think) I invented the Beggel. And it has been my hands down favourite brunch ever since. The beggel is a moist, succulent, doughy french toast bagel with a runny yolk at the centre the’ts simply perfect for dipping. I eat mine smothered with cream cheese and fresh salmon and omg I want one right now so let’s get straight to this ok

 

YOU WILL NEED

  1. 2 Eggs
  2. Half or 1 bagel
  3. Salt & pepper for seasoning
  4. Smoked Salmon
  5. Extra light Philadelphia cream cheese (so much less fat than the usual kind!)
  6. Rocket for garnishing ( just makes it look cute for the gram… could go without tbh)
  7. Some Milk – about 5 table spoons

WHAT TO DO

  1. Whisk one whole egg and one egg white, leave the second egg yolk in the shell…for now
  2. add a splash of milk to the whisked eggs, along with a sprinkle of salt and pepper
  3. Place your bagels in the mix and allow them to sit in it, saturating the souls in all the eggy goodness
  4. Heat a frying pan with a few spritz of 1 cal spray on low heat
  5. Add the Beggel to the pan and cook on each side for 1 minute, until slightly golden
  6. Spritz a little spray in the middle of the beggel and add the second yoke to the middle.
  7. Let your OCD feel incredibly satisfied at how perfectly the yolk fits inside
  8. Heat until the yolk is at your preferred consistency, about 1 – 2 minutes for me. If you’d like to brown the yolk at the top I recommend showing it under a hot grill for a quick few
  9. Spread the cream cheese, top with salmon, place on a bed of rocket, sprinkle some salt and pep and enjoy!

 

Please make this a thing. #Beggel
