Who wants a pudding for breakfast? Oh yes….this little 2 minute pudding is perfect, nutritious, filling, tasty & quick to make, whats not to love!
I love my porridge in the morning as you may know, especially in the winter months. I love experimenting with different techniques & flavours and I just had to try this, the great thing is that you can add any flavour you like, making it your own.
Oats are gluten free and whole oats are rich in antioxidants making them great for you. A great source of fibre & good carbs too.
Makes 1 Cup
40g Porridge Oats
1 Medium Egg
120ml Yoghurt (whichever flavour you prefer, I used Raspberry)
1 Tbsp of raisins & dried Goji berries
1/2 Tsp Vanilla essence (or you could use cinnamon or any flavouring of your choice)
1 Tbsp of Chopped walnuts & seeds for topping (or you could use banana or blueberries etc)
1 Tbsp Yoghurt for topping
Place oats, egg, 120ml yoghurt, raisins & berries along with essence into a mug and mix through until combined.
Cook at 800w power in a microwave for 2 minutes, ensuring it doesn’t spill over, remove, loosen the edges with a spatula or knife and tip onto a plate
Finish off with some yoghurt, nuts & seeds and enjoy!
In today’s hectic lifestyle and especially in the wintery months, it can feel impossible to achieve those recommended eight hours of sleep. Sleep deprivation catches up to us all, however, and it can be difficult to find energy-granting options that are healthy as well. Luckily, many foods boost energy naturally, offering a mid-day pick-me-up that will not derail a healthy diet.
I have put together a small collection of delicious Breakfast Recipes that I enjoy, these tasty morning starters will help get your energy set for the day ahead.
I was inspired a few years ago when I decided to look more into nutrition, it was really interesting learning about micronutrients and the true benefits of all those minerals & vitamins. I completed a health & nutrition course with BNF (British Nutrition Foundation) https://www.nutrition.training/ & learned how to use foods to our advantage to better our diets & lifestyle.
Simple to make dishes that the whole family will enjoy.
If you’ve seen my last post on Baked Doughnuts, then you’ll know that I found my Doughnut tin…lol! I decided to jazz up my breakfast into doughnuts instead of muffins, still super tasty, just a different shape.
6 large eggs
Pepper (any colour) chopped finely
Spring onions or small white or red onion – finely chopped
Cooked ham or any cooked meat of your choice – finely chopped
Salt & Pepper to taste
Grated Cheese of your choice (I used cheddar)
Grease doughnut tin with some spray oil and preheat oven to 150 deg fan.
Place the pepper, onion and ham evenly into the moulds.
Whisk up the eggs
Pour evenly into moulds, don’t over fill. Season.
Sprinkle with cheese and then sprinkle some paprika on top. Bake for about 20 minutes.
Remove and serve immediately. Yummy!
These can also be kept in the fridge for next morning, then just reheat.
I visited my local butchers (Patrick’s of Camelon), they had a new black pudding recipe with apple and onion through, they called it the Truffle Black pudding…sounding different and delicious I had to try.
1. Heat Black pudding in the microwave for 50 secs and mash up.
2. Scramble up 2 eggs adding in some crack black pepper and some chives. Serve up together.
The pudding was definately different a bit sweeter but absolutely delicious. A yummy scottish brekkie.
