OATMEAL COCONUT FIG BREAKFAST SQUARES
Recipe by Charissa & Co.
Why not spice up your usual morning breakfast with this delicious breakfast bake.
You can even do it in the microwave, all depending on how much time you have.
This well balanced breakfast will give you all the much needed macronutrients and micronutrients to get your mornings starting the right way.
The added fiber you get from the oatmeal, banana and figs are an added bonus. Containing both soluble and insoluble fiber you are bound to feel fuller for longer. Especially with the added plant based protein. Protein stimulates our appetite hormones in a positive way. Working in synergy with the fiber. Both providing satiety along with stable blood sugar levels.
1 Cup of Organic Oats
1/3 Cup of quinoa flakes
2 Servings of Nuzest Smooth Vanilla Clean Lean Protein
2 Flaxseed egg or 1 Large whole egg
2 Tbsp Monk Fruit Syrup
1/3 Cup of chopped walnuts
1 Tbsp toasted coconut crunch @cocobynuco
2 Chopped dehydrated figs
3 Tbsp of toasted coconut crunch (lightly crushed) @cocobynuco
Pinch of cinnamon
1/2 Teaspoon of gluten-free baking powder
1/3 Cup of water (or nut milk)
Mix the above ingredients together until thoroughly mixed, it should be a dough like consistency. Adding the chopped walnuts and dehydrated figs into the mix.
If you have a food processor you can chop it in there for a few seconds. Once the mix is well mixed. If the mixture is too dry then add a little bit of nut milk, it has to be more dough consistency and not too wet.
Flatten out into your small square tray, (my tray’s size 12x12cm). Pop into the microwave for 3min. Turn over once ready, allow to cool before spreading your toppings onto the squares. You can also have them plain. If you want to bake (bake for 8-10min on 180 Degrees C)
Add your favourite toppings, I added some monk fruit drizzle, fresh banana, fresh fig and some toasted coconut crunch.
