Breakfast Bowls Are The New Protein Pancakes!
Not all of us have the time every morning to spend more than 5 minutes in the kitchen. Sometimes, waking up 10 minutes later than planned can throw off my whole morning routine, not to mention breakfast time. Does that mean you head to McDonald’s for a fattening McGriddle and greasy high calorie hash browns?
Just get a little creative.
If you’re extra rushed on time and don’t have time to cook, take a look at the variety of Clif Bars we have in stock.
I created this recipe one morning when I was in a rush but still needed to get in a healthy serving of protein.
You can mix it all together, grab a spoon and eat it on the go, at work, OR you can scarf it down in 2 minutes like I did!
Chocolatey Coconut Banana Breakfast Bowl
3/4 cup non-fat plain Greek yogurt
1 packet sweetener of choice
1 tbsp cocoa almond spread (can sub with Nutella or regular peanut butter)
1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder
Unsweetened coconut shreds
1/4 cup granola or rice puff cereal
• Combine Greek yogurt with protein powder and stevia.
• Mix well.
• Swirl in cocoa almond spread and then stir in sliced banana.
• Top with coconut shreds (to taste) and granola or other cereal for crunch.
That’s all there is to it!
Easy peasy and leaves you with no excuse to eat crap in the AM. This recipe also makes for a great dessert when you’re feeling chocolatey. You can also modify the recipe by doubling the amount of yogurt and protein powder for those mornings when you are hungry and need more substance.
