Caffe Mocha Protein Overnight Oatmeal

  5 minutes and you have a healthy breakfast on-the-go for the next 5 days. This overnight oatmeal is like eating dessert for breakfast – creamy, sweet and chocolate-y. And it has extra coffee that I’m sure any mama needs on a weekday morning. If you are not a fan of protein powder, I have included substitute options. I love using protein powder because it is usually naturally sweetened, so I can keep my food low in sugar. You can use stevia as well.

Quinoa Breakfast Bake

This quinoa breakfast bake has been waiting for me every morning during the past week. Delicious, nutritious and the best part is I didn’t have to cook it. Just place a slice on my plate, top with a dollop of non-fat Greek yogurt (highly recommended) and a few berries or bananas. I even didn’t warm it up because we decided to get rid of microwave for health reasons.

Chocolate Protein Oatmeal Muffins

Basically, breakfast for “lazy” healthy people who love chocolate and protein. I fit in. And I guarantee you will love these protein oatmeal muffins – simple ingredients, one bowl and can be enjoyed on the go. They are also: freezer friendly, double batch necessary, playground/hockey game snack, purse-able, high in protein, fiber and chocolate. Zucchini make the cups moist and bananas add natural sweetness. No added sugar here. My kids, who hate zucchini, went crazy for these and still haven’t realized it was there. In fact, that’s an awesomeness of…

Coconut Chia and Quinoa Granola

I have never been a fan of granola until I made this Coconut Chia and Quinoa Granola. All things roasted, toasted, sweet, crunchy and superfood that’s good for you. Oh-ehm-dzhee. I officially like granola now! My granola. Not the store bought one though. I don’t know, it just doesn’t taste fresh to me and is sooooo sweet, I can’t take it. Even the organic one. First of all, roasted quinoa is to die for. Just like that, roast from dry and uncooked. And I hope I don’t have…

Overnight Oats

  These overnight oats and that chia pudding are perfect for lazy clean eating breakfast makers like me. I ran out of ideas and was getting tired of peanut butter on a sprouted toast breakfast. I just hate cooking breakfast, can’t stand it. I think because I’m still half asleep and have to make sure 2 kids leave the house wearing same shoes and more than a cheese string in a lunch bag. You know?! I’m sure you know. I told Alex I wish I had a mini…

Healthy Oatmeal Cookies Recipe

To develop healthy oatmeal cookie recipe has been my dream, pretty much, since I started this blog. You probably noticed I don’t have many cookies recipes except the protein cookie. That cookie recipe is phenomenal – great taste, easy to make, helped me to meet so many people and made me lots of money.;) It’s been sitting #1 in Google search results for “protein cookie” keyword for almost a year now. So, the reason why I haven’t posted any cookie recipes because I haven’t made any. All cookies…

Steel Cut Oat & Greek Yogurt Blueberry Scones

Healthy blueberry scones made with 3 times less butter and sugar than traditional recipe. White flour makes only 1/3 of the dough, substituted by steel cut oats and whole wheat flour. To make the scones moist I used Greek yogurt. Perfect Back to School snack. Confession: I have never made scones before but I’ve been buying Northern Gold steel cut oats from Costco for over a year. On a box, there is a blueberry scone recipe with 2/3 cup butter and 1/2 cup sugar. But I was intrigued…

Quaker Chewy Chocolate Chip Protein Bars Recipe

Ever since I posted my first protein bar recipe, I wanted to make another one but higher in protein, lower in sugar and fat. And it’s not easy because nut bars rely on nut butter and sticky sugary liquids like agave and honey to hold them together. I tried to cut down the nut butter and agave to almost nothing and replace with almond milk. I also tried to use chia gel as a glue. Finally, after much testing, I came up with a copycat version of these Quaker…
