When it comes to breakfast options, there really aren’t a ton of ready made options that are healthy, let alone organic. A lot of foods get markets as “organic”, but they end up being more processed than I’d like. So, if you’re in the market for some Organic Breakfast options, then look no further! I’ve rounded up some of my family’s favorites.
Recipe 01: Peanut Butter Jelly Pancakes
These are great pancakes because not only are they gluten-free, but they are also full of protein and are totally kid friendly.
- 1 c. organic nut butter
- 4 organic eggs
- 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
- 1/4 c. organic Greek yogurt
- 2-3 Tbsp. organic strawberry jam
- Agave syrup
- coconut oil
Start your pancakes by mixing the eggs, nut butter, yogurt, vanilla, and jam in a small bowl using a whisk. Whisk until everything is nice and smooth, you don’t want scrambled eggs in the middle of your pancakes. While you’re making the batter, heat your skillet (like this one) up to 350F. Next, add a dollup of coconut oil to the griddle before you start spooning the batter on. Continue to cook until golden brown, flipping once. Finally, serve these yummy pancakes with additional jam or agave syrup!
Recipe 02: Organic Green Monster Smoothie
These are quick, easy, and awesome! They are full of vitamins and super versatile.
- 2 c. spinach or kale
- 1 frozen banana
- 2 c. mango, berries, orange, peach, apple, or pineapple
- 1 c. organic Greek yogurt
- 1 c. water or almond milk
- Bulk it up by adding a Tbsp of chia seeds, hemp, or flax seeds!
Start by blending your leafy greens with the yogurt and almond milk. Once that is nice and smooth, add in your fruit and continue to blend. Ta da!
Recipe 03: Vanilla Yogurt, Fruit, and Nut Goodness!
This is a good recipe for those mornings on the go. It packs a punch of protein to keep you full while helping you wake up with some delicious fruit.
- 1 c. organic vanilla yogurt
- 1 banana
- 1/2 c. blueberries
- 1/4 c. walnuts
- 2 Tbsp. chia seeds
First put your yogurt into a container. Then top with sliced banana, blueberries, and walnuts. Last, sprinkle chia seeds and cinnamon to taste on top. Enjoy!
Recipe 04: Mango Chia Pudding
This is a protein packed breakfast! Plus you can switch up the flavors for whatever is in season and sounds good. 🙂
- 1 1/2 c. coconut milk
- 1/2 c. chia seeds
- 1-2 Tbsp agave or maple syrup
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 c. chopped fresh fruit (mangoes, strawberries, etc)
Start by adding coconut milk, chia seeds, sweetener, and vanilla to a mixing bowl. Whisk to combine. Next, cover and put in the fridge overnight. When it’s done, it’s going to be thick and creamy. If it’s not the right consistency, add more seeds or milk. Finally, layer with fresh fruit and serve!
I hope these recipes help you get a jump start on eating a little more consciously and a little more healthy! Happy cooking!
