Early mornings really aren't my thing. I hate waking up in the morning, and would love to stay in bed as long as possible. That usually ends up with me leaving the house a little too late, without having any breakfast. It's just the absolute worse to skip breakfast, but ever since I started uni it has been something that has reoccured on a daily basis. So today I'm sharing a breakfast recipe with you, that you can prepare on Sundays and can enjoy the rest of the week, without having to get out of bed early!
One of my new years resolutions (blog post to my resolutions) was to have breakfast every day. So far I've done quite an all right job at having breakfast, or at least eating regularly. It's possibly because I have been making these little breakfast muffin bites that are easy to eat when you're in a hurry. They're very filling because of the oats that are in them and are quite healthy, considering it's just milk, fruit and oats!
75 grams of oats
150 ml soy or almond milk
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
a pinch of salt
The first thing you need to do is preheat your oven to 175 degrees celsius.
So what I did next is mash my banana first and then diced my apple. I put that in a small mixing bowl, added my oats, almond milk, vanilla extract and baking soda and mixed that all together by hand until it was properly mixed.
Then you put the mixture into muffin trays. I also used paper muffin trays so I didn't have to do lots of washing up afterwards. Put them in the oven for 15-20 minutes and check to see if they're done. Mine ended up being done after 20 minutes, but I once added a little bit too much milk and it slowed down the whole process! I ended up having them in the oven for 30 minutes.
After they've been in the oven, you're done! That's it! You can eat them just like this on its own, but I sometimes like to add a bit of fruit to my muffins, such as pomegranate seeds or blueberries.
You could put these muffins in the fridge as they might last you a bit longer, but I like to keep mine out of the fridge so they're nice to eat in the morning. I usually eat two of these and am filled up until my lunch.
