3 Healthy Breakfast Ideas (That Aren't Bland Oats)

Sometimes certain breakfast routines are hard to kick, but we all know how instrumental a good breakfast can be in shaping your whole day.

Sometimes certain breakfast routines are hard to kick, but we all know how instrumental a good breakfast can be in shaping your whole day.

Breakfast helps to kick start your metabolism, and refuel your glycogen (energy) stores. Having a meal early in the day has also been proven to stabilise blood sugar levels, and improve memory and concentration levels. It reduces the risk of us binge-eating later in the day from hunger.

So what are some healthy breakfast ideas that aren’t bland oats? We’ve got you covered! Here are three healthy breakfast options that will spice up your whole day.

Raspberry Coconut Chia Parfait

Ingredients

Directions

1. Place the chia seeds, protein powder and coconut milk in a bowl, stirring well to combine. Leave in the fridge for about an hour or overnight – the chia seeds will soak up the liquid to thicken the mixture to a pudding consistency. 2. To serve, layer the chia pudding with the buckwheat or granola and raspberries in a glass. 3. It’s best eaten straight away or you can prepare it the night before to enjoy the next morning.

Matcha protein crepe-ish cake with Matcha yoghurt

Servings

Prep time
15 minutes
Total Time
15 minutes
Ingredients

  • 1 cup of gluten free oat flour (I process a cup of oats in my food processor)
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup milk of choice
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 4 tablespoons Organic Matcha Whey Protein Isolate
  • 2 tablespoons butter or coconut oil

Directions

1. Turn your stove top onto a medium heat and allow your saucepan to heat up. 2. In a large bowl, thoroughly combine all the ingredients together, until a runny batter is formed. 3. Grease the pan with a small amount of your choice of oil (I used coconut) and pour in a medium sized circular pancake. They don’t take very long to cook, and should be very easy to flip. 4. Continue until you have a big fat stack of crepe pancakes, ready to roll. 5. If desired, mix half a cup of yoghurt (I used Five AM Organics vanilla bean) with a tablespoon of Organic Matcha Whey Protein Isolate, and a sprinkle of Bare Greens. Let it sit for five or so minutes and mix thoroughly again. Layer the crepes with yoghurt and serve!
