This recipe yields quite a few waffles, which is perfect because I like to take the leftovers and wrap them in wax paper and aluminum foil and store them in a freezer bag inside the freezer. This way, when my family wants homemade waffles, they can have them in a flash with no muss, no fuss. To reheat, all you have to do is pop them into the toaster (for crispy waffles) or if you prefer them on the softer side, microwave them for 15-20 seconds. You’ll never use a mix again after you try this easy and addicting recipe. Enjoy!tags: breakfast rice, grains and breads griddle more
You want to make sure that the soda bread you use isn’t the crumbly kind, or else it won’t slice up nicely. As long as it can be cut evenly into slices using a serrated knife, you are good to go. And if you have the sweeter style, raisin studded bread, even better. Enjoy!tags: breakfast brunch rice, grains and breads fry more
It’s important to have a good balance of carbs and protein in the morning to help sustain you until your next meal. With that in mind, I try to add things to the oatmeal that will help keep me satisfied. Today I decided to stir a little almond butter into my cooked rolled oats and top it with some whole almonds, a few chocolate chips and a sprinkling of cocoa powder. The flavor combination is delicious and very filling. The addition of the chocolate chips is definitely a "once-in-a-while" treat but it’s the perfect way to stave off any sweet craving I’m having at the moment without going overboard. A teaspoon of semi-sweet chocolate chips is just the right amount of sweet to satisfy and make my breakfast feel decadent without any guilt at all.tags: breakfast rice, grains and breads simmer more
It’s no secret that I love oatmeal. I literally eat it all year round. I do, however, like to mix it up a bit as the weather warms up and make a chilled version of my favorite breakfast food. The best part is, it’s not only super quick to toss together, it can be made in advance and stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. This recipe is wide open to interpretation. In fact, I encourage you to play around with your favorite dried fruits and nuts and even spices. The possibilities are endless and only limited by your imagination, so go wild!!tags: breakfast snacks fruit rice, grains and breads no-cook more
The sweetness comes from roasted sweet potatoes, coconut oil, vanilla, and cinnamon. There’s no sugar in the pancakes, and they are gluten-free, so the taste of the maple syrup poured over them at the end can really shine through. Give them a try!tags: breakfast potatoes griddle more
