Toasted Coconut Peanut Butter and Banana Breakfast Sandwich

I’ve been changing up my morning routines the past few weeks and that definitely includes breakfast. So naturally, I was pumped to share to my newest creation with you all.

It’s kinda like a grilled cheese but for breakfast… and without cheese. But still delicious. Plus, the coconut adds a little something tropical to your morning!

You’ll need:
2 slices multigrain bread (or other thick bread)
2 tablespoons of peanut butter
6-7 slices of banana
1 tablespoon of coconut oil

I have to admit I’ve been resisting the coconut oil train for quite sometime. Not sure why… maybe because the first time I tried to buy some I realized that it wasnt actually oil but a wax-y substance and that really creeped me out for some reason.

Not to fear though, I’ve gotten over that and today dove into my first jar. I decided to keep it simple, since I’m a first timer and all.

Scoop half a tablespoon of coconut oil on to a pan. Let it melt just a touch. It’s so fragrant!

Then place the bread over the oil. I smeared it around a little to make sure it was evenly coated.

Add another half tablespoon of coconut oil and the bread slice with the peanut butter and bananas to the pan. Let the coconut oil gently toast the bread.

Then put the sandwich together and serve! It’s a super quick breakfast. Pretty sure I made this sandwich and took pictures of it in less than 15 minutes.

The coconut oil adds a nice touch to the traditional peanut butter and banana sando.

Kale and Eggs

Maybe I should just call this breakfast week. Or maybe not because tomorrow I’ll want something different than breakfast. Truth is, I got in a terrible habit of not eating breakfast. Terrible terrible, I know. So this this week I’ve been making an effort to start good habits like making my bed, walking my dog in the morning instead of just letting her out in the backyard… and most importantly: eating breakfast!

20130522-085405.jpg
Oh yeah, I threw some sriracha on there too!

20130522-085452.jpg
You’ll need:
2 cups fresh kale
1 egg
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon garlic salt
Black pepper to taste

20130522-085541.jpg
Sauté kale and olive oil over medium heat for 3-4 minutes.

20130522-085646.jpg
Add the egg. I scrambled it in with kale. Make it how you like it.

And that’s it y’all. Another super easy and quick power breakfast!
