If you’ve come across my TrooGranola post you would know that I am not the best at eating breakfast. But this National Breakfast Week I have been falling in love with the most important meal of the day with some simple easy recipes. I’m definitely one of those people who have a porridge pot in the winter – more for warmth than the breakfast factor but I get bored of food easily and I’m always looking for ways to shake up my meals.
My boyfriend and I have been trying to eat a bit healthier in general but for me not to any extreme, just more balanced. This recipe fits the healthy eating deal, whilst also being scrummy and super easy to make.
I made a mass batch with my mum at the weekend and she loved the recipe! Not just beacause it tasted awesome but because it’s super flexible. The basic ingredients are bananas and oats; the third ingredient is up to you. I’ve tried three options so far but got so many more I want to try!
Makes 12 breakfast bars, or cookies
100g of chocolate chips, which is about one bag in the UK (see below for other options)
1. Mash the bananas in a bowl
2. Mix in the oats and preheat your oven to 180
3. Fold in the chocolate chips
4. For cookies take a desert spoon of mixture. For breakfast bars, I used a brownie tin but you could also use a mini loaf tin for a really good shape.
5. Place in the oven for 15-20 minutes
6. Take out to cool and cut into desired size if necessary.
Voila! Your easy, healthy, three ingredient breakfast. Great for on the go or even a quick snack.
For other options to replace the chocolate chips I have also tried 100g mixed fruit or 70g Pumpkin Seeds. But you could also try any dried fruit cut up, such as apricot, perhaps even a bit of peanut butter? Let me know what you create with this recipe!
