I’m baaccckkkk! Did you miss me? I know I said I wanted to take at least this week off to recuperate after my stupid accident in the kitchen but I’m seriously going a bit crazy sitting around at home! I’ve been doing some reading and catching up on podcasts, reading articles on the interweb, and even though it’s only been 2 days since my last post (not even 2 days) I realised that I miss blogging!
I also miss walking…. I just got some new hiking boots and haven’t even been able to try them out yet. I’m just shuffling along and doing things super slowly… like taking 10 minutes to put on a pair of pants!
Anyway like I said I’ve missed blogging and even though I mentioned in my last post that I wasn’t up for cooking/taking photos of my food I thought I’d share 2 of my breakfast/treat recipes that I’ve made for myself. They are both EASY EASY recipes so nothing fancy here. I call them treats but they can also be meals depending on what ingredients you use… you’ll see what I mean when you get to the recipes!
I haven’t really had much of an appetite these past few days, I’ve been sipping on bone broth (I call it my frenemy now since it caused my accident but I still love it), drinking kombucha and having some full-fat plain yogurt to help combat the antibiotics I’m on. Other than that I’m keeping it simple with some veggies, eggs and whatever meat Joe cooks for dinner (thank goodness he likes to cook!)
Banana Pancake with Choc Chips
This is a quick way to whip up a ‘pancake’ for breakfast or as a little treat.
- 1 banana (softened but doesn’t have to be too soft).
- 2 eggs.
- Splash of pure vanilla extract.
- 1 tsp cinnamon.
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips (I used these ones).
- 1 Tbsp coconut oil/grass-fed ghee.
You can do this one of two ways. Either place all of the ingredients above, minus the chocolate chips into a blender and blend together or you can mash up the banana in a mixing bowl, then whisk in the eggs, vanilla and cinnamon.
I find it works best with the blender since it gives you a smoother batter, if you do it in the bowl you can end up with chunks of banana in the batter… not that there’s anything wrong with that!
Hmmm actually come to think of it you could also mix the batter up in a food processor too.. whatever takes your fancy :)
After you have finished mixing the batter heat up a skillet on medium and your coconut oil/grass-fed ghee. Once heated pour your batter into the skillet.
Scatter your chocolate chips on top and cook until the bottom is done (a few minutes) then carefully flip over and cook the other side (a minute or so) until done.
Transfer to a plate and enjoy!
Make the pancake minus the chocolate chips and add almond butter on top.
Make some crispy bacon and have it on the side, again minus the chocolate chips.
Add some coconut butter or toasted coconut flakes on top.
Add other spices like nutmeg or ginger.
There are a whole lot of different ways you can enjoy these pancakes and since the banana gives you a sweet taste you don’t need to add any sweetener on top like honey/maple syrup.
Cinnamon Apple Scrambled Egg
This recipe or I should say ingredients since it’s not really a recipe per se came together in about 5 minutes this morning. I essentially threw some ingredients together and that was my breakfast…. must remember to go shopping soon!
Honestly though this breakfast turned out to be pretty tasty, don’t worry I wouldn’t post a recipe if it wasn’t… at least I hope I wouldn’t!
- 1 apple cored and cut into chunks.
- 2 eggs.
- 1 tsp cinnamon.
- 1 Tbsp coconut oil.
Place apple and coconut oil into a microwaveable bowl and mix.
Place in the microwave and cook for about 2 minutes in 30 second intervals. So cook for 30 seconds, take it out of the microwave (carefully), stir and do this for 2 minutes or until the apple pieces are softened.
Remove and set aside.
Heat up a skillet on medium heat. I use a non-stick skillet and don’t add any extra oil to it since the apples already have the coconut oil in there.
Once it’s heated throw in your apple chunks with the oil in the bowl. Sprinkle on your cinnamon, then add in your eggs and move the eggs around with a wooden spoon to scramble them up.
Serve as is and enjoy!
Make this into a pancake instead by pouring an egg batter on top of the apples in the skillet rather than scrambling the eggs.
Add some sausage and kale to this. You can eliminate the cinnamon if you want.
Add some crispy bacon or some left over shredded chicken (again without the cinnamon).
Again you can experiment and add different ingredients to this.
So there you have it two different recipes with a few different variations of each one that you can try out. Like I said they are both easy recipes so changing them up here and there is pretty simple… just use your imagination :)
