5 Fake-Sugar Free 5 Minute Breakfasts

For most, mornings don’t exactly offer a lot of time to spend on cooking breakfast.  Especially when the snooze button seems very inviting when we are still in bed. Press that snooze button one more time because today we have 5 breakfasts that you can make in under 5 minutes that are healthy and sugar-free, brought to you by iquitsugar.com.

 

1. Eggy Muggins

Scrambled eggs are a quick breakfast in the first place but take the stovetop step out and you save yourself another 5 minutes. Not to mention you skip half of the clean up after. Simply whisk a couple of eggs with your favorite green veggies in a microwavable mug for an on-the-go breakfast packed with protein and healthy fats.

  • 2 eggs.
  • To season use herbs of your choice and sea salt.

 

Instructions:

  1. Place the green veggies, cheese of choice, salt, and pepper into a mug. Crack in the eggs and lightly whisk all together.

Skip spending $10 on avocado toast at your local cafe. Make it your own with healthy micro sprouts and crunchy chia seeds like this one.

  2. Place bread under the grill and toast on one side.
  3. Flip and sprinkle the Parmesan evenly over the uncooked sides of the bread. Place back under the grill and cook until cheese is golden.
  4. Serve the avocado dip with (Parmesan) toast alongside. Dip your toast into the avocado dip to scoop and eat. Yum!

 

3. Berry Yogurt Smoothie

This morning boost offers a healthy, all-day-energy, fast breakfast. This smoothie is the perfect combination of creamy, fresh and sweet.

Serves: 2-3

Prep time: 4 minutes

Make time: 1 minute

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup full-fat, organic plain yoghurt.
  • 1 egg.
  • a small handful of frozen mixed berries.
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon.
  • (Optional)* small pinch granulated stevia.
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds.
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil.

 

Instructions:

  1. Toss all the ingredients into a blender. Be sure to add the coconut oil last so it doesn’t turn solid in the cold yoghurt. Blend until smooth. If you like it more liquidy than creamy, add more water as you blend until it is a consistency that you like.

 

4. Tahini, Banana + Cacao Nib Toast

No hidden sugar here, just healthy, natural ingredients that taste sweet.

Serves: 1

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 2 minutes

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 pieces of gluten-free bread, toasted.
  • 1 banana, sliced in half and then half longways.
  • 2 teaspoons tahini.
  • 1 teaspoon cacao nibs.

 

Instructions:

  1. After toasting your bread, spread both sides with one teaspoon of tahini. Top with banana slices and sprinkle with cacao nibs. Drizzle with a little more tahini if you love the stuff as much as we do!

Even tastier: Add the banana slices, a little coconut oil and a sprinkle of cinnamon into a frying pan on medium heat. Fry both sides of the banana until brown.

 

5. Chive, Kale + Parmesan Pancakes with Poachies

Making pancakes quickly? Totally doable. Seems that this one isn’t necessarily 5 minutes, but we think it makes the list because 15 minutes is still crazy fast for pancakes. If you prefer a savory start to the day these pancakes are perfect. Prep time is quick and they only need 4–5 minutes to cook. Poach the eggs simultaneously and you’ll save loads of time as well!

 

Serves: 2

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 15 minutes

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup plain flour (gluten-free plain flour is you prefer).
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder.
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt.
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly cracked pepper.
  • 1 egg, whisked.
  • 1 cup milk.
  • 1 bunch (20g) chives, finely chopped + extra for serving.
  • 4 large kale leaves, stalks removed and finely shredded (about 2 cups worth of leaves).
  • 3/4 cups (70g) Parmesan cheese, shredded.
  • butter, for frying.
  • 2 eggs, poached, to serve.
  • 50g smoked salmon to serve (optional).

 

Instructions:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg and milk. Add in the most of the chives (reserve some for serving), kale and Parmesan and mix to combine. Add the dry ingredients and stir through.
  3. Heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add a little butter to coat the pan. When the pan is hot, scoop ½ cup mixture for each pancake and flatten out until 1cm thick. Similarly, cook for a few minutes until the bottom is golden brown, flip and cook on the other side. Cooking time will be about 4-5 minutes per pancake. FInally, place into a preheated oven to keep warm while making the remaining pancakes if you like.
  4. Repeat with remaining mixture. The finished product should be 4 pancakes.
  5. Divide the pancakes amongst two plates. Top with poached egg, salmon and garnish with chives.
