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.

Banana and oat pancakes

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.

 

Banana and oat pancakes ingredientsUntil then, and in case you haven’t got a moment to watch the video when it does arrive, here’s the recipe:

  1. Blend the banana, oats, greek yoghurt, baking powder, salt and cinnamon until smooth.
  2. Heat a frying pan and spritz it with fry light (I used coconut flavour).
  3. Drop spoonfuls of the batter into the pan and fry gently, turning once.
  4. 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!
