After reading these 3 totally awesome recipes, all that struggle of deciding what to have will end in just 5 minutes, after reading this!
Healthy egg omelette!
an egg omelette! My personal favourite! They can have so much taste and flavour, and you can add whatever you want to them. They are quick and easy to make, with only a few ingredients!
What you will need:
- A bowl
- A whisk or a fork
- A frying pan or an omelette pan
- A fish slice or spatula!
- a plate to serve on!
- 2 eggs
- your filling- these can be vegetables or meat, like onion, ham, chicken, tomato etc.
- cheese, if you wish
Start off by preparing your fillings, for instance chopping up ham, dice onion or anything else you’d like to use! Make sure the cheese is not included at this point, if you would like to grate the cheese now you can set it on a separate plate at the side!
Crack both your eggs into your bowl, and add a pinch of salt. Now, at this point, lots of people add milk but the secret tip is water! Adding a dribble of water into the egg mix works a lot better than milk and gives it a soft and fluffy finish! Get your fork or your whisk and give the ingredients in the bowl a right good whisk until the yolk has turned the mixture into a yellow colour. Set that bowl to the side for later.
Heat up your oil on medium heat in the pan, only just about a tbsp in the pan and let it heat up! Once the oil has gone thin, add in one bit of your vegetable and see if it sizzles. If bubbles appear around it, add in the rest of the fillings, making sure not to add the cheese.
Cook your fillings for about 2-3 minutes, until they start to sweat and go softer. Then you want to evenly spread them amongst the pan, and pour in your egg mixture making sure that covers all the fillings and goes into a nice circular shape.
Take your fish slice or spatial and lift the edges of the cooking egg, making sure it is not sticking to the bottom of the pan. Once the egg looks cooked, flip it over to the other side without breaking it in the process. Then, add grated cheese from half the omelette to the side so that half of the omelette is covered in cheese.
Then, fold the half that doesn’t have cheese over onto the other, so you now have a folded omelette! and there you go! Take it off the heat and slide it onto your plate, and now you have a tasty, healthy omelette to enjoy!
Healthy breakfast pancakes!
Are you craving some light, fluffy pancakes this morning but you’re trying to be healthy? Well, this is the recipe for you! These delicious pancakes are very nutritious and only take 10 minutes to make!
What you will need:
- A blender
- A pan!
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1 whole egg
- 2 egg whites
- 1/2 vanilla greek yoghurt
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- baking powder
Get your blender, and get ready to add your ingredients! You’re going to start by adding in the cup of oats, and then on top of them, just add in your eggs and egg whites! This is honestly such a simple recipe, trust me you’ll wish you knew about it sooner!
Once you have all that in the blender, add in the half cup of vanilla greek yoghurt, the vanilla extract and then about a teaspoon of baking powder! Once you have all that in your blender, just blend it all together until it all looks smooth and soft!
Heat up the pan, using a small block of butter to make sure they won’t stick, and spoon on a blob of the mixture! I recommend cooking each side of your healthy pancakes for 1.5- 2 minutes, and then stack them all up! Once you have made all your pancakes you can top them how you’d like! And there we go, our second amazing but healthy recipe!
Healthy baked oats
Our third and final, last but not least, amazingly healthy recipe is brownie baked oats! They are another deliciously but dieting breakfast, that could also be used as just a snack or desert and is really easy to make!
What you will need-

- measuring spoons or cups
- 1/3 cup oats
- 1/2 banana
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup of milk
- sea salt
- baking soda
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder
Before we do anything, make sure you pre-heat your oven to about 170° or 180°
Once you have got all your equipment and ingredients out, you can just start adding the into the blender in the directions that the list says! Again this is so easy! Just add your oats, and then your half a banana! Once you’ve done that add your egg, milk, a pinch of salt, a pinch of baking soda and cocoa powder!
Pop your bake-proof dish into the oven safely using oven gloves, and leave it to bake for about 15 minutes! Once they don’t look raw, and have hardened on the top but still soft and creamy in the middle, let them cool down and then it is time to enjoy!
