Coconut & Chia Breakfast Loaf

0

I’ve been feeling a little hungry not long after breakfast lately which is why I’ve been experimenting with different breakfast recipes and snacks on the go to keep me going through the morning. Now, don’t be scared when I say I have half this loaf for breakfast! It’s really not THAT much and is exactly what you need to start your day. A great balanced combination of healthy fats, carbs and packed full of protein. Not to mention, it’s delicious!!

Ingredients:Coconut & Chia Breakfast Loaf

2x Scoops of vanilla pea protein powder (I used plant fusion)

1/2 Cup or 60g of Raw rolled oats

1 Large banana (approx. 120g)

16 Almonds – chopped roughly

1 Chia egg (1 tablespoon of chia seeds soaked in 3 tablespoons of water for 15min)

200ml of Coconut cream

1/2 Teaspoon of baking powder

1/4 Teaspoon of xanthum gum (you can omit if you don’t have it, baking powder will do)

Sprinkle of natvia

Sprinkle of cinnamon

Pinch of sea salt

Water if required

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 200deg. Line a baking loaf with paper and spray lightly with coconut oil. Set aside.

Mash the banana with a fork in a large bowl. Mix in the oats and protein powder. Stir through the coconut milk until an even consistency. Add dry ingredients followed by the chia ‘egg’. Ensure everything is mixed evenly. You will only need to add water if the mixture appears to be a little dry (it shouldn’t be though!).

Scrape bowl into baking tin and bake for approx. 25min. I did the usual ‘knife’ test and once the top was browning up removed from oven.

Enjoy half of loaf as breakfast or a couple of slices for a snack!
