hooray for breakfast

Why have I never tried chocolate oatmeal before?

This creation was composed off:
1/4 Bob’s Red Mill multigrain cereal
Pinch of cinnamon
1 c water
Splash of almond milk
1/2 banana, sliced
1 Tbsp cocoa powder
Peanut butter
Frozen raspberries

Pretty splendid way to start the day. [Frozen raspberries, why are you so un-photogenic?]

Another solid morning meal: eggs redux, with some slightly mushy avocado and a “bloody grapefruit” (half grapefruit topped with frozen raspberries):

Now for a weird breakfast:

I was in the mood for something PIPING HOT so yeah, sometimes leftover chickpea-sweet potato soup for breakfast is the way to go! With a side of roasted patates and sliced apple.

Finally, the star of the breakfast crew: vegan banana raspberry pancakes!

Full of juicy raspberries and topped with birch-maple syrup, with the requisite fruit on the side.

Recipe, based on THIS one:
[Serves 1 hungry person]
1/2 c all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 ripe banana, mashed
1/2 c + 1/8 c almond milk
1 tsp agave nectar
1/2 c frozen raspberries
Maple syrup and additional sliced banana, to top

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl.

Grease griddle or frying pan and heat over medium-high.

Drop large spoonfuls of batter and cook until edges are bubbly.

Flip and cook on the other side until done (I did about 3 min on each side).

Let cook a few minutes, and top with syrup and sliced banana.

Devour!

Yoga tune of the day:
“Breakfast” by EMA…starts off slowly like a lullaby sung in a dark corner of the city and becomes a lovely refrain

  1. Hell-o, chocolate oatmeal! Didn’t know you could do that. Yess, I have cocoa powder.

    Those pancakes look like fluffy clouds. Let’s make pancakes together again soon 🙂

  2. I just love breakfast foods, but rarely for breakfast time. You’ve got me in the mood for a pancake dinner now. But those chocolate oats -do- look much more delicious than something so simple and wholesome should!

  3. Teehee, I’m with Hannah! I so often eat oats for dinner, but your chocolate version is far more healthy than mine. I make mine chocolatey by adding Lindt 85% 😉
