How to:

Cook Oats as directed.

Meanwhile, mash up banana (it helps if you mash it first, learned this the hard way!) And add egg whites, protein and peanut butter. Mix all into the Oatmeal.

Place a medium size  skillet on medium heat in the coconut oil. Let the pan heat up and pour some batter on to the skillet. Sprinkle berries on top of pancake before you flip. Cook till you see bubbles forming at the top. (these type of pancakes take longer to cook because they are more dense.)

Top with more berries and 2 tbsp. Agave Nectar!

Vanilla Blueberry Smoothie!

LOVE Zucchini Bread!!! SO ..here’s a more healthier option when it comes to some yummy bread for maybe a party or even a small snack!

You’ll Need:

3 Zucchinis (shredded)

2 tablespoons of ground flax seed mixed with 5 tablespoons of water in a separate small bowl (this is your “eggs”)

1 1/2 cups of Gluten free flour (or if you don’t need it to be gluten free, another great option is whole wheat flour)

1/2 cup Olive oil.

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup agave nectar

2 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

How to:

Pre-heat oven to 350

In very small bowl, mix flax sees and water in bowl and set aside so it gets thicker and kind of “goopy”

Next, in large bowl, mix olive oil, vanilla, cinnamon, agave, “egg” mixture, salt and shredded zucchini into bowl. Mix well.

Then add Flour, baking soda and baking powder into same bowl and mix until all ingredients are wet.

Coat baking pan with cooking spray, and pour mixture into blow and bake for about 20-30 min depending on how big the pan is. Bake till a toothpick or knife comes out clean without mixture on it.

** I cut a slice and topped it with a tiny drizzle of natural honey** So good**

YUMMMMMMMM!
