 Healthy Breakfast Ideas

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and missing out on it can cause serious health issues. You can easily avoid that with our healthy breakfast ideas that will only take you a minute or two to prepare in the morning.

There’s no denying we’re big fans of breakfast at Right Bite, but personal preferences aside, breakfast is in fact the most important meal of the day as it helps kick start your metabolism. Not just that, breakfast skippers tend to nibble more throughout the day and could develop weight-related problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or heart disease. If you’re already having trouble keeping up with your healthy eating resolutions, a clean start may be exactly what you need! And while we may know how to supercharge your breakfast, we’re no superhero, especially in the morning… so here are out top healthy breakfast ideas!

 

1. TIME IS ON YOUR SIDE

While a hot bowl of oats is yum and comforting, overnight oats have a lot of good things going for them! To start, raw, soaked oats are easier to digest and better absorbed by your body as the soaking acts like a slow cooker and breaks down the starches. Moreover, by soaking your oats, this means you can eat them chilled instead of waiting for your hot oats to cool which makes them higher in resistant starch and will keep you fuller longer and help control insulin spikes associated with eating hot carbohydrates. Finally, just like a good marinade, take your time the night before to mix up your favorite milk with some fruit or spices and let the soaking work its magic. Now all that’s left for you to do in the am is add some extra goodness: - power up with protein by adding half a cup of cottage cheese or greek yogurt or a tablespoon of your favorite nut butter, - add some fresh fruit for extra fiber, - and sprinkle with seeds for crunch and some antioxidant action!

 

2. THE FREEZER IS YOUR FRIEND

Dry Ingredients



2 cups old fashioned oats
1 cup almond flour
¼ cup ground flaxseed
¼ cup desiccated coconut
1 tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp nutmeg
¼ tsp all spice
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt

 

Wet ingredients



1 large very ripe banana, mashed
¼ cup coconut oil, melted1 large very ripe banana, mashed
¼ cup unsweetened almond milk
½ cup unsweetened applesauce
¼ cup honey
2 tbsp pure maple syrup

 

Final bits



1 cup finely grated carrots
½ cup roughly chopped pecans

Directions


Preheat oven to 350 degrees then line a baking
sheet with a some parchment paper and set aside.


Combine all dry ingredients in one big bowl and mix
in the spices.


In a separate bowl, mash the banana and mix in all
the wet ingredients – whisk until well combined and
then add the wet mixture to your dry bowl. Finally
fold in grated carrots and chopped pecans.


Allow the cookie batter to cool down for about 20
min in the fridge before making your cookies.


Once rested, use an ice cream scoop to measure
and shape your cookies. We like our cookies big
and chewy so we use about ¾ of a scoop per cookie
and flatten them a bit before baking. Bake for
about 9-11 minutes, or until golden brown.


Cool completely then wrap individually and freeze.
Next time you don’t have time for a healthy
breakfast, pop one in the microwave for 20 seconds
and enjoy!
