If you are tired of the same boring breakfast, or you are spending too much money on take away breakfasts that are not as healthy as you would like them to be, then we have 5 breakfast ideas for healthy & busy people just like you.

Breakfast can be fast and nutritious. It just means a little preparation is needed. This will long term save you time and money, not to mention all the health benefits your cells and tissues will be taking advantage of.

Most of these recipes are vegan or can easily made vegan by substituting cow’s milk for almond milk or honey for rice bran syrup with all of our breakfast ideas. 

Also, most of these recipes can be made the day before and some are a great addition to lunch boxes, or as a snack.

The 5 recipes we show you in the video are:

1. Buckwheat granola

2. Banana pancakes, grain free

3. Vanilla Chia pudding

4. Green breakfast bowl

5. No bake Breakfast protein bars

1. Buckwheat granola, gluten free

This is a big quantity and lasts our family about 4-6weeks. Can use this in muesli bars too, but  halve the quantity if it too much.

6 cups of buckwheat kernels, soaked 24hrs and sprouted until the sprout is not longer than the kernel (1-3 days spread out to half a centimeter and covered loosely, rinsed 2-3 times a day)

2 1/2 cups of seeds ( I use a mixture of flaxseed, pumpkin and sunflower) soaked for 24 hr

2 cups of pecans soaked for 4-6 hrs, and no longer

3-4 teaspoon of vanilla extract

3-4 teaspoon of cinnamon (can add other spices, such as nutmeg or ginger)

1/2 cup sweetener such as a mixture of coconut sugar and rice syrup, honey

Can add more if you like it sweeter. Rinse and drain buckwheat, nuts and seeds into a big bowl and add other ingredients. Mix thoroughly.

Spread onto a lightly greased dehydrator sheet thinly. Dehydrate for 12-16 hrs at 47 degrees.

2. Banana pancakes, grain free

Serves one greedy one or 2.

1 banana ripe and mash in the skin

2 eggs

Serve with maple syrup and/or yogurt.

3. Vanilla Chia pudding

1 cup milk (of choice)

1 teaspoon honey/agave/maple syrup

1 banana ripe

1 handful of nuts

2 cups of frozen fruit (pineapple, mango, banana, melon)

1 cup milk (coconut, almond etc)

5. No bake Breakfast Protein bars

  • 8 medjool dates pitted

  •  1 1/2 cups oats
  • 2 tablespoon Cacao nibs
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts
  • 3 tablespoon of melted coconut oil
  • If you want a bit more sweetness, add 2 tablespoon of honey or maple syrup

Process the pitted dates in a food processor/Thermomix with 2 tablespoon of hot water into a ball/paste.
Place all dry ingredients in a bowl. Stir all the dates. Mix well.

Line a container, 20cm or so with baking paper or coconut oil. Press the mixture firmly into the container and refrigerate for a few hours. Cut into bar sizes and store in fridge. Will last a week in fridge.
