Sweet Breakfast Scramble

Sweet Breakfast Scramble
I can’t believe wedding week is finally here! I promise that after the big day/honeymoon, I’ll be baking more! Although my ingredients are always wholesome, it is important to remember that although a brownie is made with avocado and maple syrup it is STILL a brownie and should be treated as such. A healthy treat is called a treat for a reason and should always be eaten in moderation (if you can control yourself!). In my attempt cut back on the baked goods and bread, I concocted this sweet breakfast scramble to satisfy my sweet tooth without it loading up on carbs. This breakfast comes together so quickly and it is PACKED with protein to keep you full for hours. Lots of you saw it on snapchat and sent me your versions! So, I figured I should share it here.

Zach and I get married on Saturday, ah! Then we set off to Italy and Greece for our honeymoon. Be sure to check my Instagram stories or snapchat for some insider pictures of the special day and all the delicious food we eat in Europe. I am preparing another recipe to share next week, then I am going to take a little social media/blog break. I’ll be there but much less often. Can’t wait to tell you all about it upon my arrival. Have an amazing few weeks everyone! Stay tuned for some delicious recipes…

Banana Chocolate Chip Granola Clusters

If you love the taste of chocolate chip banana bread, and the crunch of granola then these clusters are for you! Although Goddess Granola, will be my one true granola love, these crunchy clusters come in at a close second. Perfect on top of coconut yogurt, chia pudding- or straight from the jar… these babies are the perfect pick me up when fuel is running low. These have the perfect amount of natural sweetness from overripe bananas and lots of fiber from buckwheat and oats! As always these are gluten, dairy and refined sugar free. They are also vegan! Mornings just got a little easier…

Ingredients:

• 2 cups gluten free rolled oats
• 1 cup buckwheat (I used sprouted, or you can use more oats!)
• 1 cup walnuts (roughly chopped)
• 1/4 cup coconut sugar
• 1/2 tsp sea salt
• 1 tbsp cinnamon
• 1/4 cup coconut oil (melted)
• 1/3 cup maple syup
• 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
• 1 ripe banana mashed
• 1/4 cup 70% chocolate chips or cacao nibs

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Mash banana with a fork in a small bowl.

2. In a large bowl combine oats, buckwheat, walnuts, coconut sugar, sea salt and cinnamon.

3. In a small sauce pan over medium heat, melt coconut oil and whisk in maple syrup, mashed banana and vanilla. Pour mixture over dry ingredients and mix until combined and well coated.

4. Spread the mixture evenly onto your baking sheet and bake for 25-35 minutes or until golden. Do not mixture during baking to keep clustered! Allow to cool and then break granola up into palm sized clusters. Add chocolate chips and stir. Store in an airtight container for up to two weeks.

Acai Ice Cream

mHRsvaALCip1Yhds7uZI1riguT90ti3Ls7Ua8OhzEt4
Ice cream for breakfast… yes please! This is perfect for the summer days that are soon approaching (please god). When it is sunny and warm outside, I no longer crave those bowls of comforting oatmeal or granola. I prefer something refreshing and cold, and this acai (pronounced ah-sa-ee… I think) ‘ice cream’ is the perfect nourishing breakfast, snack or dessert all summer long. Packed with good for you ingredients such as kale, cinnamon and chia make this the ultimate sweet treat. I topped mine with manuka honey, my Goddess Granola, sprouted buckwheat, almonds, banana and strawberry. MMM unreal!

I have to say that in recreating the perfect acai bowl, there really is no equivalent replacement for the Sambazon smoothie packs. I have bought the powders, but I really love the taste and consistency of the Sambazon ones. I buy the unsweetened version and add my own honey or stevia. The classic version has added cane sugar and guarana extract. These are great simply poured on oatmeal, granola, fruit etc…

Acai comes from the acai palm tree that you can find only in Central and South America. I want to debunk some rumours that say that ‘acai is the weight loss secret you have been missing.’ Dont you hate those annoying ads? In fact, there have been no studies proving that acai helps you lose weight. Like other berries however, acai is a great addition to a diet, as it provides loads of antioxidants and healthy omegas. If you replace your nightly ritual of pies and cakes with acai, Im sure you will see some weight loss results ;).

Lots of instagram requests for this recipe! If you don’t follow me on instagram already you can check out my page @cleaneatinggoddess. I post more pictures there of my daily creations, some make it to the blog some dont, so its worth a follow! As always this recipe is free of gluten, dairy and refined sugar! Hope you all have a wonderful week!
