“I am SUCH a breakfast lover! I enjoy cooking it so much I plan what I’m going to have every night before I go to sleep. My favorite two things to make are protein pancakes and oatmeal, and I love coming up with new creations and variations of flavor. Below are a few that were too good not to share!”
Superfood Brownie Protein Cakes
- 1/3 cup oats, 1 cup of spinach
- 1/2 scoop whey (I used Dymatize Fudge Brownie)
- 2 TBS almond milk
- 6 TBS egg whites
- 1/2 TBS chia seeds.
Cook on medium heat and flip when they start to bubble.
I topped with strawberries, sugar free syrup and cinnamon. These would also be AMAZING with melted almond butter!
Banana Raspberry (low-carb) Crepe
In a bowl, mix:
- 1/2 cup liquid egg whites
- 1/2 scoop whey
- 1/2 TBS coconut flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1.5 tsp Stevia, and cinnamon (I free pour, because I can’t get enough)
Cook in a skillet on Medium-Low.
This came out so fluffy and delicious, I can’t even tell you…Stuff it with whatever! I made a cottage cheese spread in the food processor (1/4 cup cottage cheese, stevia, cinnamon, and a handful of raspberries. pulse until smooth). Then I added slivered almonds and banana slices! Foodgasm.
Carrot Cake Overnight Oats
In a jar, mix:
- 1/3 cup dry oats
- 1/2 TBS chia seeds
- 1/4 cup almond milk
- 1/4 cup yogurt (I use Greek)
- 1/3 scoop whey
- Cinnamon, Stevia, Nutmeg
- 3-4 grated baby carrots.
Mix well, cover, and refrigerate overnight.
I love to eat these cold when I wake up, but if you don’t like it, just heat them up!
Ok, now my proudest creation…
Cranberry Marshmalllow Sweet Potato Oats (aka, Thanksgiving in a bowl)
- 1/4 cup oats
- 1/2 cup liquid (water or almond milk)
- 1/4- 1/3 cup mashed sweet potatoes
- Stevia and Cinnamon
- Microwave for 45 seconds
Mix well and add 1/2 cup liquid egg whites. Microwave for 30 seconds, remove and stir vigorously to make sure the eggs mix well. Microwave for another 45 sec-1 minute. You will know when the eggs have cooked. It makes them so fluffy AND protein packed!
I topped with slivered almonds, Walden Farms sugar free Marshmallow sauce, and homemade cranberry sauce. Couldn’t get over this bowl of yumminess ALL day.
For cranberry sauce: Cook a bag of fresh cranberries with 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup stevia in a covered skillet on medium-low until they start to excrete juices and become soft.
Happy Fall! XO
Alexandra, these recipes look awesome! I don’t eat breakfast but I will definitely try some of these out for other meals– “thanksgiving in a bowl” looks like a great post workout meal..
