Lighter Pumpkin Pancakes

This recipe was inspired by the pumpkin pancakes from the Quinoa 365 cookbook, which are delicious and decadent, but are a pretty heavy breakfast. I've created this lighter healthier version based on the more traditional paleo pancakes I whip up quickly in my blender. 

Homemade Holy Crap Muesli

A whole-food breakfast that's high fiber and nutrient dense, not to mention quick and easy. Add it to yogurt and fruit or pour steamed milk over it and let it absorb some of the liquid and it's really good! Make a batch and keep it in a jar in the fridge - it'll keep for months. 

No-Cook Overnight Oats Two Ways

Now that spring has sprung it's ok to eat my cold version of oats in the morning, so I wanted to share this recipe with you! Oats are a power-breakfast: whole grains + soluble fiber beats any breakfast cereal, especially when you include some fresh fruit and good protein. But, one of the biggest troubles people tell me they have with breakfast is that they don't have time to cook in the morning. Solution? Make breakfast easy and delicious so all you have to do is grab and go before work. 

Spiced Carrot Cake Oatmeal

Who says oatmeal needs to be bland and boring? With the flavours of carrot cake this oatmeal is spiced, creamy, and slightly sweet. It still provides you with a hearty breakfast that boasts 17g or protein and 7g of fiber, so it'll keep you going until lunchtime! A little goes a long way with this one :) This recipe makes a big batch that's perfect for feeding a large group, or to make ahead and portion into ready-to-eat weekday breakfasts. 

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

I've never had anyone turn down a bowl of pumpkin pie oatmeal (after they have a taste).  Plus, 19 grams of protein at breakfast and 9 grams of fiber!? - Wow! The warm flavours of fall keep me going for hours, not to mention the protein! This recipe makes 2 servings, but you can easily double it and have breakfast for the week ready to go! Don't like oats? Try these and see if they change your mind ;)
