Breakfast Trends

I have been loving breakfast lately and have whipped up some great treats for the Hubz and I.  Monday morning we enjoyed some banana bread protein pancakes with agave glazed fruit and of course enjoyed with Kicking Horse Coffee– I am addicted to this stuff!

Banana Bread Protein Pancakes

Serves 3-5 people


  • Dry
  • Wet
    • 2 bananas mashed
    • 1+1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
    • 1t vanilla
    • 1T canola oil
  • Agave Glazed Fruit (for more than 3 people add more fruit and and extra tablespoon of agave)
    • 1/2 cup sliced strawberries
    • 1/2 cup blueberries
    • 1/2 cup raspberries
    • 3T agave nectar


Preheat a griddle.

In a small bowl blend the wet ingredients until mostly smooth; it is okay to have some small banana chunks. In a large bowl whisk all of the dry ingredients together.  Create a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and pour the wet ingredients in and stir together.  At this point you can add a little more non-dairy milk if you like your pancakes thinner otherwise it’s time to cook.

Spray the preheated griddle with cooking spray and drop 1/4 cup of pancake batter on it. Cook 3-5 minutes on the first side and 1-2 on the second side until light and fluffy.

Top your pancakes with the agave glazed fruit and enjoy!

Since the weather has been crazy hot the past few days I’ve decided to keep it light and make some cooling coconut yogurt parfaits.  This morning I even made my dad a greek yogurt parfait since he was up bright and early with us. I layered coconut yogurt, strawberries and a blend of oats, chia seeds and flax meal.

Q: What have you been enjoying for breakfast?


  1. I’m definitely going to try those parfaits. I still haven’t seen any coconut yogurt in Montreal, so I’ll stick with soygurt. It looks terrific.

    My breakfasts have been pretty boring this week : two toasts with peanut butter and ground flax seeds, and a glass of vanilla soy milk.

  2. Awesome, I’m always up for new breakfast ideas! I make a similar styled pancake, but with buckwheat flour.

    Thanks for the recipes!
