Hey! Do you ever feel totally bored of breakfast? I know that I do. It’s one of the busiest times of my day and I generally haven’t had enough coffee to feel creative enough to break out of my boring old routine. So most days I have the same old thing – two boiled eggs.
This has really worked for me, because it’s quick, easy, and portable. I boil the eggs for six minutes, let them cool a little and then peel and eat. I find that six minutes is the sweet spot to get soft boiled eggs that are firm enough to eat without a spoon. If I’m rushing out the door I can pop them into some tupperware and eat on the run.
And the best thing is that they are zero points on Weight Watchers – which I am currently following most of the time.
A new addition to the breakfast menu
Last night I was watching something on Channel 4 about losing weight for summer and the presenters made what looked like a really yummy breakfast.
It’s a variation of the banana pancakes I already make sometimes at the weekend (mush a banana in with beaten egg and fry. Simple and delicious). In this recipe they added oats, greek yoghurt and baking powder. It is still only 5 Weight Watchers points, but it’s far much filling, so worth it I think.
So today I decided to try this new variation for myself. I even made a quick video, but at the moment technology is letting me down and I can’t post it in this post. I will add it later.
Until then, and in case you haven’t got a moment to watch the video when it does arrive, here’s the recipe:
- Blend the banana, oats, greek yoghurt, baking powder, salt and cinnamon until smooth.
- Heat a frying pan and spritz it with fry light (I used coconut flavour).
- Drop spoonfuls of the batter into the pan and fry gently, turning once.
- Serve with more greek yoghurt and chopped up fruits of your choice.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did. Let me know!
