Looking for a healthy breakfast recipe that’s quick, easy and tasty? Boy do I have the perfect recipe for you! Last week I shared my favourite lunch recipe – today I’m sharing my ultimate breakfast recipe!
I love healthy recipes but sometimes you just want to be naughty, right? You want something sweet with ooey-gooey chocolate chunks, even if it is 7am. Well guess what? You can have all of that whilst still sticking to your diet and still being able to look good in your summer bikini! Let me introduce you to the healthy deep-dish breakfast cookie. It’s low in fat and low in sugar, whilst being high in protein and fibre.
Plus it’s a cookie full of chewy oats and wonderfully melted milk chocolate chips. Not only is it actually good for you, but it’s also easy and quick to make. So easy and quick in fact that you can whip it up and serve it on week day mornings before school starts. The back to school season is just around the corner, right? Plus, you won’t have to feel bad about serving your kid a cookie for breakfast because it’s healthy, remember?
Whilst the cookie flavour is certainly there, the texture isn’t right. It isn’t soft and chewy like an oatmeal cookie and it certainly isn’t crisp and crunchy like a chocolate chip cookie. This is where it gets even better. You know what the texture is like? It’s like a cake – seriously. If you time it juuuuust right and don’t over-cook it in the microwave (you seriously don’t want to do this or you’ll be left with an inedible burnt brick) you’ll end up with a light and fluffy indulgent dessert which takes like a cookie and is a healthy breakfast. I can’t stress that last bit enough, people!
- 1/4 cup oats
- 2 tablespoons whole wheat flour
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon chocolate chips + extra for topping if you're feeling indulgent
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon peanut butter
- 3 tablespoons fat-free plain yoghurt
Stir all the dry ingredients - oats, flour, baking soda, sugar and chocolate chips - together in a bowl.
Add in the wet ingredients - vanilla, peanut butter and yoghurt - and stir well until everything is combined.
Scoop into a ramekin, bowl or mug and microwave on high for one minute. Depending on the type of microwave you have, it might take 10 seconds more or less to cook - experiment and find your perfect time!
Top with extra chocolate chips if desired and leave for a few minutes to cool slightly before serving.
