Granola & Frozen Berries : Five Second Breakfast

Eats, Loves

We all know what it’s like to wake up craving a quick, cosy, nutritious and yummy breakfast while being too tired (and lazy) to make pancakes, fry an egg or even put bread in the toaster. On those days, I do one of three things:

  1. Eat Weet-Bix Bites out of the box,
  2. Chuck granola, frozen fruit and milk into a bowl, or
  3. Go back to bed.

no, I’m not going to write a post about my adventures waking up and immediately resuming my slumber.

The combo of crunchy granola, ice cold milk, and the flavour bursts/ice cubes that are frozen fruits is a healthy and delicious meal/snack that can be put together by simply dumping everything into a bowl and enjoying. This fast and filling breakfast is perfect for both a calm morning on the couch with a book, and a hectic morning trying to rush out the door.

Healthy Chocolate Cake in a Mug

Eats

She ain’t the prettiest thing, but this chocolate-banana ‘cake’ is absolutely delicious. Better yet, no flour, oil, butter, or refined sugars are involved and neither are a lot of carbs (yet it’s extremely filling and quick & easy to make).

All in a mug and cooked in the microwave, here’s my simple 5 minute chocolate-version of the peanut butter cakes I showed you guys last (last) month.

Healthy Microwave Peanut Butter Muffins

Eats

I’ve recently been on a health kick, so naturally I turned to the internet for healthy recipe ideas.
As I love doing her workouts, I decided to try some blogilates recipes, Cassey’s Berrylicious Microwave Minute Muffin and Protein Cinnamon Roll in particular. Though I didn’t love the results of the recipes, they completely inspired me to eat healthier, more nutritious food; and after a bit of experimenting, I came up with a recipe of my own for quick, guilt-less peanut butter muffins!

[these bad boys are low carb, free of refined sugars (depending on your peanut butter) and contain no butter or flour]
