Prep: 5 minutes
Cooking: 5 minutes
~ 1 banana
~ 2 eggs
~ 10g oats
~ 1 tsp Coconut Oil
~ (Optional) Top with natural yoghurt, Berries, Nuts, Cinnamon, Honey etc.
MethodCrack your eggs into a bowl along with chopped banana and oats.
Use a fork to whisk it all up and mash your banana to your decided consistency. The mixture should be quite runny.
Then heat a tsp of coconut oil in a pan adding a small amount of your mixture flipping over until cooked, repeat until you've used all of your mxiture. If you prefer you can make one big pancake flipping it like an omelette.
Once cooked topped with your desired topping. I chose berries, yoghurt, cinnamon and honey.
These easy pancakes are perfect for a post workout breakfast providing you with carbs and protein!

Saute 5-7 minutes, or until peppers are tender., then add in spinach and mushrooms and cook for an additional 2 minutes.
In the last 30 seconds, add in minced garlic. Season with salt and remove from heat.

Baked egg in Avocado
~1 large ripe avocado
~2 medium eggs
~Large handful Kale
~6 cherry tomatoes
~1/2 red pepper
~ 30g feta
MethodPreheat the oven. Cut the avocado in half lengthways so both pieces resemble a boat shape. With a spoon, scoop out some of the avocado from both halves.
Put in a baking tin so they stay upright and crack an egg in each half. Season well and put in the oven for 20 minutes on a medium heat.
Cut the tomatoes in half, slice the red pepper and add to a pan. Fry on a low heat for a couple of minutes. You can add a little coconut or olive oil to the pan if you wish.
Spread the kale out on a baking tray, spray with oil olive and season well with salt. I like to add garlic salt for extra flavour! Put the tray in for literally 2 minutes. Watch it until it goes crispy, it burns very quickly.
Now assemble your dish! Add a bed of kale to the bottom of the bowl, then the tomato and pepper. Finally place you baked eggs in avocado on top and add a sprinkling of feta to finish.
So delicious and easy, you've got to try it!
