The Sweet Omelette is the Answer to All Your Breakfast Prayers

By June 17, 2016Eat, Recipes

Just when you thought breakfast couldn’t get any better, we give you…the sweet omelette.

Yes, you read that right. SWEET. OMELETTE. Sounds weird, I know. But don’t knock it ’till you try it. I was so skeptical, and then I made this beauty:

…. and I’m never going back. 

Here’s how you do it. 

1. Make the omelette part.

Usually when you make an omelette, you add spices like salt, pepper (oregano maybe if you’re getting fancy). Now imagine a world where you nix all that. And what do you do instead? You add CINNAMON

Yeah. Pretty genius, I know. 

So whisk your eggs together in a little bowl and add some milk or nut milk if you prefer (optional: I made mine without milk, but I’ve heard it adds fluff). 

2. Bake your banana. 

While you’re making your omelette, preheat your oven to 425. Now slice a banana in half and place it on aluminum foil. Place aluminum foil in the oven once preheated. 

Bake your banana for approximately 10 minutes, though it’s up to you how mushy you want it to get. The banana will have some liquid released from it, too — keep this. Pour it ALL OVER your omelette. It’s like syrup, I swear.

3. Top your omelette with ALL the goods. 

Place your baked banana (and all its juices) on top of your omelette. Choose whatever additional sweet toppings you want, and enjoy! 

I used peanut butter and a drizzle of honey. And a sh*t ton more cinnamon. But it’s up to you.

The best part about this is that you can top it however you want! You don’t even have to use the banana; I’ve seen sweet omelette variations with blueberries, whipped cream for an extra indulgent morning, yogurt… the options are endless. I recommend a fruit and nuts or nut butter, along with some form of sweetener. (Chocolate would be great on this… maybe next time.)

Here are some other great examples: 

 

Low carb day breakfast ๐Ÿด๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ“ I look at my calories as more of a weekly average now rather than day to day which allows me to have higher calorie/carb days and just make up for it by having slightly less the following day to balance it which is an approach I prefer๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป that said, this was a low carb breakfast for a low carb day (due to much higher intakes the last couple of days) and consisted of a 1 egg, 1 egg white omelette with peanut butter, avocado, Lindt 90% chocolate and strawberries, fats galore! Not a massive fan of high fat and low carb as I do feel more sluggish but just playing around with different approaches atm and trying to stick to this carb cycle (as best i can ๐Ÿ˜‚) happy humpday ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป x head over to my snapchat for a full day of low carb eating!
