Right now, Greek yogurt is all the rage, and rightfully so! It is great for you. Want to give your breakfast a powerful protein punch that will keep you full all morning long? Here is a healthy spin on everyone’s favorite breakfast indulgence…

  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons sugarGreekYogurtPancakesDash-675x675
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¾ cup vanilla Greek yogurt
  • ¾ cup milk

 

Preheat a pan or griddle to medium heat. Whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. In another bowl, mix oil, eggs, vanilla, and Greek yogurt. Add the dry ingredients to wet ingredients and stir. Pour in the milk until all ingredients are combined. Grease griddle and pour ¼ – ⅓ cup batter onto the griddle. Allow them to cook for about 2 minutes or until edges begin to look “dry” and bubbles form in the batter. Use a thin spatula to flip the pancake over and allow to cook for a mother minute.

Mango pancakes? This phrase combines two of my favorite foods in the world! Start off your day right by making these sweet treats for breakfast.

Ingredients:

  • 3 mangosdownload (2)
  • 4 tbsp icing sugar
  • 300 ml thickened cream

For the pancakes:

  • 6 eggs
  • 4 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 tbsp vegetable oil

For the pancake batter, whisk the eggs and sugar together and then add the milk in. In a separate bowl, stir together the flour and salt and then whisk it into the egg and milk mixture gradually. Add in the vanilla and oil, then stir. Remove any lumps from the mixture and allow it to stand for 30 minutes at room temp. It will be watery. Make your pancakes in whatever pan you usually use, and then cover them with plastic wrap and store them in the fridge.

Whip the cream and the powdered sugar until it is firm. Peel the mangos, and then slice them thick. Spoon some cream onto the top of the pancakes and then top them with two slices of mango. Cover the mango with a bit more cream and then roll the pancake up. Let them chill in the fridge for a few minutes and then gobble them up!

Wow, my tummy is rumbling just typing this recipe! Do you think they sound yummy?

 

XOXO, Chels

Healthy Breakfast Muffins!

Waking up for school can be a struggle, but making yourself a decently healthy breakfast before school is an even bigger struggle!  It’s easy to just grab a granola bar, pour yourself a sugary bowl of cereal, or worse, skip breakfast all together.  I’ve got the perfect (and healthy) muffin recipe you can whip up on the weekend and eat throughout the week! Chelsea Crockett- healthy chocolate muffins

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 very ripe bananas
  • ¼ cup of maple syrup
  • 1 cup of creamy peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup of cocoa powder

Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees.  In a food processor or large mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients.  Once mixed, the batter will be VERY sticky.  Make sure to grease the pan before pouring the mixture into the molds.  Try using a wet spoon to get the batter out.  Place the muffins in the oven for 15 minutes and wait until they are completely cool before chowing down!  They should last up to a week if you place them in the fridge!  Hope you enjoy!

Love,

Chelsea

Blueberry Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie

Sometimes it can be tough to get a healthy breakfast in. You all know how important breakfast is, it has been drilled into our brains since 7th grade health class. I find that I am always running around in the morning and barely have time to make a healthy breakfast that will keep me full and focused all throughout my morning. I have found that breakfast smoothies are my best bet when it comes to a fast and nutritional breakfast because all I have to do is throw a few ingredients in a blender, blend, and then toss it in a cup and go! Here is the recipe to my favorite breakfast smoothie, the blueberry oatmeal smoothie!

Ingredients:download

  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 frozen banana
  • ¾ cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 tsp honey (this is optional)
  • And if you are using fresh un-frozen blueberries, 4-5 ice cubes

If you REALLY want to be prepared, measure out the blueberries, banana, and oatmeal the night before and place them into a plastic Ziploc baggie. Put the baggie in the freezer to keep the fruit frozen and in the morning all you have to do is toss those ingredients into the blender and then add the other few ingredients! It is super easy to make this smoothie, just add all of the ingredients together into the blender and blend until they are all chopped up! This recipe makes about 2 servings of smoothie, so give the rest to your siblings or parents! Trust me, they will love you for it. J

Enjoy!

XOXO, Chels

Now that it is September, I am gearing up for everything pumpkin flavored. Why not, right? You can never have too many pumpkin recipes, especially when you love fall as much as I do! I am a huge believer in breakfast. Not only is it super important in keeping you full of energy throughout the day, it also is super tasty. If you love pumpkin and French toast, then hold onto your hats, because I just put the two together. Boom.

Ingredients:

–          ¾ cup milkpumpkin-french-toast1

–          ½ cup pumpkin puree

–          4 eggs

–          2 tbsp packed light-brown sugar

–          1 tsp vanilla

–          1 tsp ground cinnamon

–          ¼ tsp ground nutmeg

–          9 slices of French bread

In a mixing bowl whisk together milk, pumpkin, eggs, brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg until well combined. Pour the mixture into a shallow bowl. Butter a skillet and dip your sliced bread into the egg mixture. Allow the bread to absorb the mixture and then put the slice on the skillet to cook until it is golden brown on the bottom, then flip the bread and cook it until that side is golden brown. Do these steps until all of your mixture has been used. Serve your yummy French toast with maple syrup and a little powdered sugar and you have a delicious, fall themed breakfast!

I cannot wait for my mom and I to cook up this recipe. Will YOU try it?

XOXO, Chels

Pancakes are one of my favorite meals to have for breakfast… and what’s better than being a little creative and making them cake batter red velvet pancakes? Since I spend a lot of time on Pinterest, I thought I’d share this delicious recipe I found. Not only is the recipe for the pancakes, but for a cream cheese drizzle as well! Yum!

Chelsea Crockett - PancakesFirst, you need your ingredients: 2 cups of red velvet cake mix, 1 ¼ cup of milk/water, 1 egg, ½ cup of flour, 4 ounces of cream cheese, ½ cup of powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon of vanilla, and 2 tablespoons of milk.

Second, heat your pan or skillet at medium heat. Take a large bowl and whisk the egg and milk together. Then, add in the red velvet cake mix, milk, egg, and flour. Mix together until the batter is completely fluffy. After that, you’re ready to go! Whether you want mini pancakes or big ones, grease the pan with butter or oil before pouring on the batter. Then pour the batter on the pan and wait till a bubble appears to flip. Each side should cook for about a minute. Once the pancakes are done, you’re ready to make the cream cheese drizzle!

This part is simple. Take a smaller bowl and mix together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk. Once all ingredients are fully mixed together, pour the drizzle on top of your pancakes. How delicious does that sound :)?

Enjoy! – Chelsea

Some days, I like to get into a health kick… and with breakfast being the most important meal of the day, what better way to start it off with a good, nutritious breakfast? I recently found a simple little meal that provides both vitamins and a delicious tasteJ! It also doesn’t take up a lot of time in the mornings and is perfect if you are on the go!

If you’re a fruit lover, then you will LOVE these breakfast parfaits. You can make them almost any way you want! First, you need to pick out ingredients that you or your family likes best. For example, I love bananas so that would definitely be one of my first choices! The list you need is short and simple: yogurt, granola, and whatever fruit you prefer. I suggest buying around three different types of fruit and yogurt to mix it up a little!Chelsea Crockett - Breakfast Parfait

Grab a couple of small glasses and fill it half way with whatever kind of yogurt you prefer. Then top it with some granola and the fruit to go with it! Take the one on the right for example. This person put vanilla yogurt, granola, some berries on top! It’s making my mouth water just thinking about it!

So next time you wake up craving something delicious and nutritious, try whipping up your own fruity breakfast parfait, whatever way you like it!

Love, Chels

Do you ever get so tired of hearing the phrase “breakfast is the most important meal of the day” that you want to scream? That very fact is drilled into our brains by every health class teacher and well-meaning mother around. The thing is, it is actually true! Breakfast not only gives you fuel to continue on with your day, but it also helps you lose weight because you are not as hungry for lunch and dinner! The best

chelsea crockett breakfastway to make sure you get a great breakfast is to give yourself a reason to want to eat it! This next breakfast recipe will have you begging for breakfast!

All you need is an egg, an avocado, and some bacon! Slice your avocado in half and take the skin off. Scoop out some of the inside of the avocado so you have room to put an egg in it. Once you have scooped out some of it, crack the egg into the avocado. Sprinkle some bacon onto the top of it and put it into the oven on a baking sheet! Bake it at 425 for 15 minutes, take it out, sprinkle it with salt, and enjoy!! Avocados are one of the best foods for you out there, so what better way to fuel your day?

Hopefully this yummy recipe encourages you to start eating breakfast!

XOXO, Chels

During the winter months, there is nothing tastier than a warm breakfast! Today I am going to teach you how to make a totally mouth-watering breakfast perfect for any winter morning! Introducing, French toast roll-ups!

Ingredients:

-8 slices white sandwich bread

– Softened cream cheese, diced strawberries, or Nutella

– 2 eggs

– 3 tablespoons milk

– 1/3 cup granulated sugar

– 1 heaping teaspoon ground cinnamon

– Butter, for greasing the pan

1. Take the soft white bread and cut the crusts off. Use a rolling pin and flatten the bread out.

2. After you have flattened the pieces out, add whatever filling you want. I recommend sliced strawberries and softened cream cheese! You can even add Nutella, for you chocolate lovers!  Add the fillings to the end of the bread and roll them up!

3. Dip the rolls in an egg/mixture just like you would regular French toast. Brown them in a skillet and then roll them in cinnamon and sugar!

            Breakfast, it’s the most important meal of the day!  Starting your day off with a healthy meal is a great way to fuel your metabolism and get your day going.  Sometimes, it’s not always easy to make yourself a good breakfast when you you’re in a rush for school or work, but it IS possible!  Get rid of that boring cereal or granola bar and rethink breakfast with these new and creative ideas. 

            Toast is one of the most popular breakfast sides.  With so many topping choices, the variety is endless!  So what if you’re sick of the typical butter and jelly?  Try topping your toast with peanut butter and sliced bananas or any flavor of cream cheese with a handful of blueberries and strawberries.  Toast doesn’t have to be boring!

            If you like salty breakfasts try Egg Beaters!  It’s eggs already mixed up, so all you have to do is pour and cook!  They come in all different flavors including three cheese and southwest.  Try making an omelet stuffed with your favorite meat, veggies, and cheeses.  If you don’t have time to cook in the morning, make pre-made omelet muffins.  Start by greasing a muffin pan so the eggs don’t stick.  In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and any toppings you would like, including meat, cheese, and veggies.  Fill each muffin cup evenly and bake at 350° for 20 minutes.  Now, you have breakfast ready in advance.  Just heat and enjoy!  Chelsea Crockett- omelette muffins

            Never skip out on breakfast!  Your body will love you if you fill it up with a hearty and healthy breakfast.  Breakfast doesn’t have to be boring.  Get creative and rethink breakfast!

Love,

Saint Patty’s day is fast approaching (can you believe it is almost MARCH already?!) so I thought I would put a little gold in your recipe pot. I found an amazing St. Patty’s day breakfast recipe on BettyCrocker.com that is to die for. What is it? Lucky charms pancakes, of course!!

Ingredients:

–          Bisquick pancake mixpancakes

–          Lucky Charms cereal

–          Green food coloring

In a large bowl, whisk Bisquick mix, milk, vanilla and eggs just until blended. Add some green food coloring and whisk again. Now for the yummy part! Add 1/2 cup marshmallows from Lucky Charms cereal and mix. Pop a few in your mouth if you dare! For each pancake, pour a little less than 1/4 cup batter onto a hot griddle. Cook each about 3 minutes or until bubbles form on top and the edges are dry. Flip them and then cook until the other side is golden brown.

Top them with some whipped cream and Lucky Charms marshmallows and you are all set! As the Lucky Charms Leprechaun would say, “They’re magically delicious!”

XOXO, Chels
