Breakfast Recipes

Recipe: Oaty Banana Muffins

Wifey has really been experimenting of late with some different ideas for Breakfast. We like new things rather than being stuck with the same things to eat week-in-week-out. We also have a requirement of being able to take breakfast to work to eat.

This leads to being creative while trying to keep eating healthy. Different flavours and different textures are all popping up right now. Just last week we had some Savoury Breakfast Muffins which were so versatile it’s unreal.

This week’s little creation is still muffin themed, but rather than the texture of an omelette, it’s really more of what a muffin is. I love these little muffins because they’re also ideal if heading out for some exercise early on. If I was to go out on the bike early doors, these are ideal for chucking down my neck before heading out.

Recipe: Savoury Breakfast Muffins

Most people will agree with me when I say that Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It’s the first thing you eat each day (most of the time anyway) and it breaks the fasting period your body has had during your sleep – hence breakfast.

A lot of people skip breakfast due to not having time to make something. Especially when you’re trying to be healthy and not have any prepacked food. Preparing good healthy meals can be time consuming.

But what if there was something that only takes 20-25 minutes? Or even better, can be made the evening before? Could this solve the old age issue of “I don’t have time to make anything”? Oh yes, it could.

Recipe: 1 Syn Sausage, Egg & Cheese Bagel

Who likes a McDonalds Breakfast Bagel?  In particular the Sausage, Egg and Cheese Bagel?  You may not like McDonalds at all, never been to one in fact, but you may still like the sound of a Sausage, Egg and Cheese Bagel to set you off in the morning.

Mmmm… Bagel and Coffee

If a Bagel is your sort of thing, this savory breakfast (or lunch) treat could be well up your street.  Only this version is a lot healthier than the McDonalds one and is only 1 syn on Slimming World (when using both your HEa and HEb choices).  Even if you’re vegetarian you can enjoy this, as we used the Quorn Sausage Patties to make this wonderful delight.

Recipe: Ham and Egg Cups

Often across Slimming World Groups people say they struggle with Breakfast ideas.  Breakfast is often seen as one of the more difficult meals of the day.  People are often limited in thinking breakfast is either Cereal, Toast or a good old English Breakfast, but it doesn’t have to be.

People these days often get to work before having breakfast.  I often do, largely because if I eat at 6am then I’m going to be snacking around 9am.  I usually don’t have breakfast until 9am/10am when at work.  It fits with my morning break and I can then go to Lunch without cravings of rubbish food which I then want to snack on.

These little cups (as I call them) are filling as can be eaten cold (after cooking) or warm.
