Banana Splits For Breakfast!

Yes, you read that correctly!

We had banana splits for breakfast this morning and they were super yummy and healthy. I adapted the recipe from my Clean Eating Magazine.

So maybe my banana split didn’t have ice cream or sugary chocolate syrup but it tasted just like dessert and the kids loved it. They both asked for seconds which is rare.

You can use sugar-free strawberry preserves or make up your own strawberry preserves the night before. I sliced up strawberries and added Agave syrup. I let the strawberries sit in the refrigerator overnight. Either way banana splits for breakfast will be a hit!

This tasty breakfast is easy to assemble and only has only 247 calories and 12 grams of protein.

I found the Overnight Oatmeal recipe below. I needed a jar so I went out to the recycle bin and found one.  I cleaned the jar and then added the ingredients (that I had on hand) and let it sit in refrigerator overnight.   When I woke, breakfast was already made.   All I needed was a spoon! Well… I also needed another jar because Alice attacked my breakfast. “More! More!” she said.  Next time, I must remember to make enough to share.

Clean Eating Walnut Blueberry Banana Bread

clean 001

 

I have recently been doing the clean eating meal plans.  I am on my 3rd week and the food and recipes are easy to follow. It’s a great way to ease into clean eating and learn how to shop and even cook. I have to admit I feel a lot healthier getting rid of processed foods and sugars. The family doesn’t seem to mind either. My husband has already attacked half the loaf of walnut blueberry banana bread.

This recipe was among the many delicious and clean meals, I have made. I wanted to share this yummy walnut blueberry  banana bread. It was super easy and makes a great snack or breakfast.  Today I paired it with a cup of Greek yogurt. Pretty simple right?
