3 Healthy Breakfast/Brunch Recipes



Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, to the point where I can pretty much eat ‘breakfast foods’ for every meal. There’s always something comforting and soothing about pancakes, waffles, scrambled eggs, yogurt and other breakfast classics.


But how do we enjoy our favorites and still maintain our daily calorie count? Here are 3 Healthy Recipes you can use for daily breakfasts or serving to friends at brunch that will help everyone keep their calories down and the stomachs full!





HIGH PROTEIN OAT WAFFLES


Whether you’re a waffle or a pancake person, I use this wonderful batter on both. The waffles come out super light and crispy and, since they are egg white based, are a surprisingly good protein source. I like to make 3 or 4x the batter so I can just throw them on the griddle or waffle iron for several days to save time in the morning.


Ingredients:


2/3 cup 4% milk fat small curd cottage cheese

2 large eggs, separated

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1/3 cup water


Calories: 121 per 2 waffles (1/4 cup of batter each)


Put the oats, egg yolks, water, vanilla, cottage cheese, baking powder, and salt in a food processor and blend into a paste. If the batter is too thick and sticky, you can add more water to loosen it up.

Meanwhile, beat the egg whites to stiff peaks, then fold into the batter. Once combined, use a waffle iron or griddle to make waffles or pancakes, top with fresh fruit or agave, and enjoy!
