I am always looking to make breakfast just a little healthier for myself and my kids but I also like to make it taste good, coming up with new breakfast recipes is something I have been focusing on for the past couple of months, my kids get bored with the same thing every day so it’s important for me to mix things up a bit!
Honey Bunches of Oats have always been a family favorite and they now have Chocolate Honey Bunches of Oats too, that are also Gluten Free! Due to the way some gluten products affect my skin I try to eat only a little of it at a time or steer away from it whenever possible so I am thrilled with this new sweet cereal offered by Honey Bunches!
Since I always crave something sweet in the morning and something a little savory, I decided to test out a new recipe I just came up with, it took me a couple of tries to get the right amount of flavor and the result is delicious!
The recipe only uses 4 ingredients, Honey, Bread (Gluten free if you prefer), bananas and eggs, it’s super easy to make and provides a delicious way to incorporate some sweet and savory items into your morning!
This recipe is enough for 2 slices of french toast, so double or triple it up if you have a large family to feed!
To start with, mix two eggs in a bowl with 1/3 cup of honey, I played around with the amount of honey I used and found this to be just the right amount of sweetness.
After you mix the eggs and honey together, take around three handfuls of Honey Bunches of Oats Chocolate cereal, crumble it up into the egg and honey mixture then stir it in good!
Pour the mixture onto a plate then cover your bread on both sides with it. Make sure to rub it on the top and bottom, not just flip it over like regular french toast, this will coat your bread fully in the mixture.
Next, add a little olive oil or oil of your choice to the frying pan and cook each slice of french toast on a medium heat for 2 – 3 minutes on each side!
Once your toast is finished cooking, plate it, sprinkle some more Honey Bunches of Oats over the top, then add some bananas or fruit of your choice for that extra texture and flavor!
This recipe is extremely simple, most mornings I don’t have time to cook a big breakfast so I stick to simple things like cereal and toast. This takes all of 10 minutes to make and has that much needed protein plus helps curb chocolate cravings throughout my day!
If you are looking to make this recipe gluten free, choose a gluten free bread instead of regular and switch out the bananas for something that doesn’t contain gluten!
If french toast isn’t your thing, a bowl of the new Honey Bunches of Oats Chocolate cereal with some milk is obviously another great way to enjoy it and curb those sweet cravings in the morning!
