I find most people either skip breakfast or have a hard time finding something quick they can eat in the morning. On my latest segment on KATU’s Afternoon live, I brought in some healthy breakfast ideas to share with host, Tra’Rene. These ideas are quick, easy, and healthy and can be made ahead of time for those busy mornings!

Protein Banana Nut Muffins:
Here’s what you’ll need to make approx. 6 muffins. You can double the batch for 12 muffins (I suggest having 2 each for breakfast)
¼ cup walnuts
¾ cup oats
1.5 cups Liquid Egg whites
1 Tsp Stevia
1 Tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1)Add all the ingredients to Blender and blend until everything is mixed together
3)Pour into an oiled muffin tin (filling ¾ of the each tin so there’s room for the muffins to rise)
4)Bake for approx. 20 minutes at 400 degrees or until the muffins are no longer wet in the middle (I use a toothpick to check)
5)once cooled, transfer 2 muffins to individual sandwich bags or Tupperware and store in the fridge for up to 4 days.
*These muffins are great re-heated in the microwave!
I just started making Overnight oats a few months ago because I kept seeing them all over Instagram and was curious what the hype was all about. This is such a great, easy way to pre-make your breakfast the night before and have it all ready for morning time.
¼ cup Plain nonfat Greek Yogurt
¼ cup Plain uncooked rolled oats
1/3 cup milk (I prefer skim)
2 tsp Chia seeds (these will expand and soften overnight)
2 tsp honey
1 tsp cinnamon
¼ cup blueberries (or any fresh or frozen fruit)
1)Add all ingrains to a Mason jar, bowl or Tupperware container
2)Cover with a lid and refrigerate overnight and it will be ready to eat in the morning!
*I make 4 of these at a time
