Healthy Recipe Ideas!

[Guest post blogger S Palmer]

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and also the hardest to fit into a busy life, (especially when you’re running late). Personally knowing these things I try to fit in some type of fruit or a bowl of Kashi, but eventually I miss real foods. Real foods being the kind that require ingredients and assembly.  I don’t want it to be high in fructose corn syrups or anything else that might make me tired during the day. So after recipe searching, I think I found a couple of tricks that could be helpful if you’re like me and only have a few minutes.

Banana Oat Pancakes

  • 2 bananas 
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup of oats
  • ½ teaspoon of baking powder
  • Optional fresh fruit and maple syrup to serve with the pancakes
  1. Turn on pan to a medium heat.
  2. Blend the bananas, eggs, oats, and baking powder with a blender – make sure you don’t let it get too thin otherwise the pancakes won’t cook properly.
  3. Spray coconut oil on the pan before ladeling out the pancake batter.
  4. Check the pancake side facing down on the pan – flip it once its turned a golden brown color.
  5. Once the other side of the pancake is a golden brown shade too, you’re done!

Finish making all of the pancakes, this recipe should make about 4-6 pancakes depending on the size you make them.

Overnight Oats

  • ⅓ cup of rolled oats
  • ⅓-½ cup of milk (depending on how thick you eat your oatmeal)
  • ⅓ cup of plain yogurt
  • ½ banana
  • ½ tablespoon of chia seeds
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of cinnamon

Mix ingredients in a bowl and place in the fridge overnight. You may want to place your oats in a travel container if you know you’re gonna be on the go.

I like both of these recipes!  If you’ve got some time to spare, you can go for the banana oat pancakes. And if you know you won’t have enough time in the morning, you can prepare oats the night before and just grab and go!
