Breakfast is undoubtedly the most important meal of the day. Give us a choice, and we would love to be fumbling around the kitchen, whipping up the most fluffy and delicious scrambled eggs whilst preparing a nice warm cuppa. Sadly, we often succumb to the temptation of snoozing in bed instead—only to have just enough time to wash up and rush out of the house.
We all love the sight of a scrumptious feast in the morning—all laid out on the dining table waiting for us to dig in. However, we are often caught with a time constraint which limits our options when it comes to breakfast.
If you have always wanted to prepare a wholesome breakfast that does not take much time to prepare, here are 7 Easy Breakfast Recipes To Try At Home. Now, you can indulge in both extra sleep and a hearty breakfast at the same time.
#1 BANANA PANCAKES
When one thinks of banana pancakes, they would often attribute it to a messy kitchen with tons of ingredients strewn over the kitchen counter. If you were envisioning that, we are here to prove you wrong. This easy two-ingredient banana pancakes will be the easiest recipe you will ever encounter, and yes, they taste amazing too!
1 sliced banana
1 tablespoon of self-raising flour (optional)
Mash the sliced bananas with eggs until they amalgamate to a starchy texture. Add in a dash of self-raising flour for the pancakes to become fluffier. Oil the pan and add the batter in while keeping it at low heat. Garnish it with sliced bananas and maple syrup before serving.
#2 CEREAL MARSHMALLOW EGGS
These Cereal Marshmallow Eggs will be the perfect morning treat for your little ones. Best part? You can even adorn it with craft paper and add a pretty ribbon to make these babies look extra fanciful. Or how about surprising your loved ones in the morning with this wonderful creation that will bring a smile to their faces? You can thank us later!
A bowl of cornflakes
5 or 6 marshmallows
Pop the bowl of cereal and marshmallows into the microwave oven for around 1 minute. Mix the melted marshmallows with cornflakes and knead it into your desired shape. Add in craft paper and ribbon for the final touches!
#3 EGG AND CHEESE SANDWICH
We all love a good old egg and cheese sandwich for breakfast. All you have to do is fry up a sexy sunny-side up (or any form of eggs will do, really), slap on a slice of cheese between the bread slices and, voila! It is simple and bound to hit all the right spots when you sink your teeth into the running yolk coupled with a creamy slice of cheese—we know you want it now.
2 slices of bread
1 slice of cheese
Gently slide the sunny-side up into the frying pan and sprinkle some pepper on the egg. Once the egg yolk is almost set, scoop it up and sandwich both the cheese and sunny-side up between two slices of bread. This is so simple that you can just run to the kitchen and whip up a plate now.
#4 FRUIT KEBABS
Fruit Kebabs are not only easy to consume but are also healthy at the same time; start your day with the right amount of nutrients that your body requires. These kebabs are easy to prepare, best done the night before. For those who often face the problem of oversleeping, you would be heartened to know that it makes a great grab and go breakfast too!
An assortment of fruits
Disposable satay sticks
Choose your favourite fruits and chop them up into little cubes. After which, string them together on a disposable satay stick—the brighter the better to give your mornings a little sparkle!
#5 MICROWAVABLE OATMEAL MUFFINS
If you think that this will be the most tricky dish, we assure you that it is not. Ironically, it is possibly the easiest recipe out of the entire lot! Oatmeal is one of the power food items around, linked to countless of health benefits that make you appreciate and love them more. Serve it with fruits, or eat it straight out of a cup.
3 tablespoons of oatmeal
Any fruit of your choice
1 teaspoon of sugar
A dash of self-raising flour (optional)
First, add in 3 tablespoons of oatmeal into a coffee cup and beat the egg in after. Throw in your preferred choice of fruits (we feel that blueberries or bananas work best with this recipe) before garnishing it with a sweetener of your choice and a dash of self-raising flour. Mix well before popping it into the microwave oven for 2 minutes. Slide it out of the cup and garnish it with your favourite fruits before serving.
#6 NUTELLA COATED BANANAS
Who does not love Nutella? Coupled with bananas, this is one of the most popular food pairings in the world. For parents who are looking at something to get your little ones scrambling out of bed, this would be your answer!
3 sliced bananas
Finely chopped almonds
Slice up 3 bananas and slather them with as much Nutella as you wish. After which, sprinkle the finely chopped almonds on the bananas for a wholesome finish. For those who prefer something crunchy, granolas are a great choice too!
#7 YOGURT POPSICLES
Another quick breakfast item which you can freeze the night before and take them out of the freezer before you leave home. As yogurt has softer consistencies, it is better to leave them overnight in the freezer to ensure that they harden the next morning. This dairy product is known to aid in digestion and boost the immune system too.
Yogurt in cups
Stick the popsicle sticks into the yogurt cups and let them freeze overnight before taking them out in the morning. Yes, it really is that simple!
