Hot Breakfast for a Chilly Morning

This morning was a hot breakfast kind of morning.  There is nothing like a nice warm bowl of something hearty to take the chill out of a rainy day like this one.

Usually when it comes to hot breakfast options, scrambled eggs are my go-to choice.  But this morning I wanted a little something sweet, not my usual savory.  So I took a look at what was in the kitchen, and this is what I came up with….

Sweet Banana Mash

Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 tsp coconut oil or butter
  • 1/2 c lite coconut milk
  • 1/3 c unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon (or more to taste)
  • 4 Omega-3 enriched eggs

Instructions:

  1. Melt coconut oil or butter in a skillet.
  2. Add bananas.  Sauté until browned then mash.
  3. Add coconut milk and bring to a simmer.
  4. Add shredded coconut, vanilla extract, and cinnamon.
  5. Stir for 1-2 minutes while the shredded coconut absorbs most of the liquid.
  6. Scramble 4 eggs in a bowl and add to skillet.
  7. Stir and cook until eggs are the desired consistency.
  8. Serve hot.

Serves 2

Customize your breakfast with a sprinkle of your favorite nuts or seeds!  Try almonds, pecans, or pumpkin seeds.

If bananas aren’t your thing, try these substitutes:

  • 1/2 cooked sweet potato & 1 Tsp honey
  • 1/4 c raisins & 1 Tsp Honey
