Sweet Potato Waffles

Quick & Easy Breakfasts

Sick of sacrificing taste and nutrition for the sake of a more efficient breakfast? Well you can turn away the toast or quickly crunching down on an apple for something a little more fun, filling and satisfactory!

Sweet Potato Waffles

Sweet Potato Waffles

Full of fun and none of the naughty! Sweet potato waffles can be cooked in a waffle iron in under ten minutes, and depending on how you’re feeling, turned into a savoury or sweet treat.

Ingredients and batter ratio:

For one serving

1.5 cups of peeled/grated sweet potato;

1 large egg

2 tbsp of your favourite flour

Preparation:

Simply mix together the ingredients and pour into your pre-heated waffle iron. For a healthy non-stick method, try a light coating of olive oil.

Cooking time:

Depending on your waffle iron, your brekky should be ready between 7-10 mins.

Storing the batter:

You can save further time by making enough mixture to last three or more days. Make sure the batter is sealed and covered in your fridge and you’ll be able to pull it and pour it every morning!


Turkey and Egg Cups

Turkey and Egg Cups

If you’re after a more protein-heavy breakfast but without all the bad fats, you can bake a try of turkey and egg cups to keep you satisfied.

Ingredients:

Eggs

Lean turkey (sliced/shredded)

Brown/multigrain/lo GI bread slices or rolls

Preparation:

Preheat your oven to 170°C and grab yourself a muffin tray. Line each cup with olive oil or butter, fill it with your bread, and then mould it into a cup for your egg and shredded turkey.

Cooking time:

Your turkey and egg cups should be ready in around 15-20 mins.

Batch cooking:

If you got the muffin cups, use them! Turkey and egg cups can be stored for around a week, and are just as delicious cold as they are hot. If you’re looking to give your morning a little more kick, try adding some ground chilli into the mix.


Walnut Oatmeal Bites

Walnut and oatmeal breakfast bites

Somewhere between a cookie and a muffin, these breakfast bites bring some sweet simplicity to your morning.

Ingredients and ratios:

For one serving – remember, how big you make your bites is up to you!

2 medium bananas

1 cup of steel cut oats

¼ cup of crushed walnuts

Preparation:

Preheat your oven to 180°C. Prepare a baking tray and non-stick baking paper (or use non-stick spray, olive oil or butter) and leave to the side. Mix and mash your bananas, oats and walnuts together, and then spoon out your choice of bite-size! Be warned, this breakfast is surprisingly filling, so experiment with smaller bites before you move to bigger ones.

Cooking time:

Leave into the oven until your bites are starting to turn golden brown – for a crunchier bite, leave in the oven till it’s a darker brown.


Oatmeal Pancakes

Oatmeal pancakes

Packed with a protein punch, these oatmeal pancakes are rich, filling, and ready in minutes!

Ingredients and ratios:

For one serving

1 cup of steel cut oats

1 cup of cottage cheese

3 eggs

Preparation:

Heat up a non-stick pan on high, and put all of your ingredients into a blender and mix until your batter is smooth. Turn the heat down to medium/low, and pour your pancaked out. Flip when the bubbles have popped and settled.

Cooking time:

A single batch of oatmeal pancakes takes around 8-10 minutes to cook.

Storing the batter:

Oatmeal pancake batter can last a few days in the fridge as long as it’s covered properly. If you’re looking to eat them soon, you can dollop some honey on them to make them a tasty dessert or spread some peanut butter for a filling lunch.
