First up is a lazy Sunday breakfast. These delicious healthy pancakes are by the recipe of Rens Kroes. She’s a successful writer, nutritionist, blogger and columnist. This recipe is from her most famous book ‘Power food’. I divided all the ingredients of the recipe by four to make a 1-person breakfast. I also adjusted the recipe a little by using other ingredient options. For this recipe you’ll need:
- 20 grams of flour
- 30 grams of oat flakes
- 1 egg
- 100 ml of rice milk
- ½ tbsp. of flax seeds
- Coconut oil (to bake the pancakes)
The nice thing about this recipe is that you can make it in the food processor. Put everything in there, except for the coconut oil. Let the food processor do its work and you can start baking when the batter is nice and smooth. To make it even taste better top it off with a few slices of banana and a drizzle of honey. You could also change it up with another type of fruit and some maple syrup.
Second a pre-gym breakfast, which is inspired by Niomi Smart’ recipe: Healthy chocolate milkshake. She’s a successful youtuber and also the author of her own cookbook ‘Eat Smart‘. I changed some ingredients and made it into my own pre-workout breakfast smoothie. This gives you enough energy for your morning workout, but doesn’t give you a full feeling in your stomach. And again, you can make this one in the food processor! For this breakfast you’ll need:
- 1 banana
- 200 ml of rice milk
- 2 tbsp. of a plant based protein powder (I used rice protein)
- 3 tsp. of cocoa powder
Put everything in the food processor and let it blend until the banana is nice and smooth. Pour the smoothie into a glass or a to go mug and enjoy your breakfast. To spice things up you could add about half a tbsp. of peanut butter.
The third and last recipe is an everyday pimped up porridge. I ‘pimped’ this ordinary porridge by adding about 3 tbsp. of applesauce by The Anna Edit made with honey instead of maple syrup and a sprinkle of chia seeds for some extra protein. You can find the applesauce recipe on Anna’ blog: The Anna Edit, which has a lot of other tasty recipes on it. Besides writing tasty recipes she’s also a successful youtuber and blogger. For the porridge you’ll need:
- 125 grams of oat flakes
- 400 ml of milk
Just cook the oat flakes and the milk in a saucepan until it gets ‘sticky’. Keep stirring until it’s ready otherwise it will cook to the bottom of the saucepan. I usually make the applesauce in a big batch during weekend, which will last me about 3 to 4 days. This breakfast honestly keeps me going until lunch!
