And the mashup continues! I didn’t want the blog to go completely dark while we’re traveling in Southeast Asia, so I’ve been doing a series of mashups of my favorites. Today, it continues. Breakfast is always a hard one for me – I am not a morning person my any means. I like quick, easy, and of course, tasty options. Below are my 4 favorites. All hit every one of those requirements.
In case you missed it, I was lucky enough to have a guest post by Sophia at Love and Lentils last Saturday that looked beyond amazing. If you did miss it, definitely take a look. The pictures alone will make you drool!
These are by far the easiest breakfast ever. Because you need to do absolutely nothing in the morning. Simply toss all the ingredients into a mason jar, put it in the fridge, and go to sleep. I mean really, nothing easier than that! I was skeptical the first time I attempted to make overnight oats. I never thought about eating oats raw. But now that the door has been opened, there’s no going back. They taste delicious, they’re nice and soft, and the simplicity just blows me away.
Oh pancakes. How I love the. While not as simple as throwing things in a jar and going to bed, these pancakes are so worth a little extra effort. They’re decadent, full of flavor, and fill you up in no time. The added “magic sauce” takes them over the top from simply “yum” to “oh my gosh I need to eat 10 more.” When you’ve got a little extra time on your hands in the morning, definitely whip these up. You won’t regret it one bit.
Apple Sausage, Kale, & Tofu Scramble
Sometimes I’m anti-sweets in the morning. Or anything that tastes even remotely sweet. Tofu scramble to the rescue! Reminiscent of eggs, the tofu scramble makes any breakfast complete. A touch of added turmeric gives the tofu that yellowy egg look. I like throwing lots of things in with the tofu for added textures and flavors, in this case, apple “sausage” and kale. And everything is better with a little hot sauce. Am I right?
Homemade Energy Bars
Some mornings I’m running out the door to work or the gym and I simply can not be bothered to eat anything that requires utensils or more than one hand. My homemade energy bars fit that bill. Gooey, nutty, and oh so tasty, I can’t help but want to eat the whole pan at once. And they’re so much better for me than the pre-packaged energy bars filled with added sugars and other ingredients I can’t pronounce!
