Not So Boring Breakfast Ideas


Are you not a breakfast person, or just plain bored of breakfast? Instead of skipping out on breakfast or making an unhealthy decision, why not think outside the box and try something new?
Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day because it breaks the fast that your body has been in while asleep, provides you with the nutrients to start your day, and helps with maintaining a healthy metabolism. Its been known that people who eat breakfast are less likely to make a poor decision later on from being starved from lack of food.
Below are 3 fun and healthy recipes that you can try for next time you are in a breakfast slump!


Apple Protein Breakfast Cookie
Who doesn't like cookies? And having a cookie for breakfast sounds pretty good to me! I just came up with this recipe last night wanting something fun for breakfast, and since these cookies are so low in calories, 2 would be a perfect amount!






Ingredients:
1 cup oats
50g coconut flour
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1 egg
3/4 cup egg whites
1 tsp vanilla
2 scoops stevia
cinnamon as much as you like
1 chopped apple


Preheat oven to 325F. Mix all dry ingredients together. Add wet ingredients and mix well. Add apple last and mix. Portion out 6 servings and mash together a big flat cookie and place on a greased lined cookie sheet. Bake for approximately 15 minutes.
