Tried and Tested Pins – Breakfast Edition

Inadvertently this month I bring you tried and tested breakfast recipes from Pinterest. I love trying new breakfasts, you may remember my Brex files.

So here are my tried and tested pins from the last month, I’m pleased to say there isn’t a single failure. To catch up on the other highs and lows see my previous tried and tested pins posts

The Pin: Sweet Potato Protein Pancakes from The Lean Green Bean

My Version:

Tried and Tested Breakfast Recipes Pancakes

What I Changed:

I used greek yoghurt (Total, not the greek style stuff)instead of cottage cheese, I don’t think it made any difference to the final product. WOW OH WOW these are fun to make, the bright orange batter is a joy before baking and the pancakes it produces are sweet and fluffy. Like Lindsay I didn’t bother with the added sweetener, my sweet potatoes were sweet enough and I piled mine up with natural peanut butter. I can’t wait to make these again for David, they are a great alternative to banana pancakes.


The Pin: Choco Banana Overnight Oats from The Healthy Foodie

My Version:

Tried and Tested Breakfast Recipes Overnight Oats

What I Changed:

I love how Sonia tells her stories through her blog and this was a pin I have been hoarding for a while. I didn’t add protein powder, millet, chia seed or buckwheat as I didn’t have any so I used some flax and a whole banana instead.

The Pin: Peanut Butter Oatmeal with Nana-Coffee Cream by Nad’s Healthy Kitchen

My Version:

Tried and Tested Breakfast Recipes Porridge and Banana Coffee ice cream

What I Changed:

I didn’t add any of the stevia as I don’t normally sweeten my porridge, I also omitted the eggwhite as I couldn’t be bothered at 7am in the morning! It was good but quite time consuming and I don’t think I’d bother again. I’d make the coffee ice again for pudding though!


The Pin: Warm Sweet Potato Oatmeal from North Carolina Sweet Potatoes

My Version:

Tried and Tested Porridge Recipe

What I Changed:

Nothing! Can you tell from this post that I had a cupboard full of sweet potatoes? This was sensational porridge, absolutely umptous. So filling, warming, sweet and full of flavour, I used toasted crushed pecans. Whatever you do, don’t omit the maple syrup, treat yo’self.

I promise to bring you something other than breakfast next month but do tell me  what’s next on your breakfast ‘to make’ list? Let’s connect on Pinterest

      It does make sense but it is a bit cumbersome, I’d probably say “I’ve never used sweet potatoes in a sweet recipe’. You definitely should. I want to try sweet potato brownies!
