I like quick and easy recipes with minimal ingredients and I’m always looking for recipes that fit this description. I’m a creature of habit and so is my husband (thank goodness) so we eat a lot of the same meals every week. I have found this to work well for me in this phase of life so I can spend less time in the kitchen and more time with my family. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and I like to fill up on healthy carbohydrates first thing in the morning to feel pleasantly full and energetic.
So, today I wanted to share my favorite breakfast recipe that is so quick, delicious and nutrient dense! This is the perfect breakfast to make in the morning before work or even the night before to save more time. I recommend making a large batch on Sunday for the whole week so its prepped and ready for you. You can also throw it on yogurt, munch it as a midday snack or top it on your favorite dessert!
