Apple Cinnamon Bake

This one gets prepped and then put in the refrigerator for a couple hours and then baked for about an hour. I find it makes an equally good breakfast as it does a dessert ! This one even had my non-breakfast eating daughter asking, “can I have some of that?” The aroma of cinnamon and apples gets ya every time !

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake 50-60 minutes or until browned.

Bacon, Egg and Cheese Muffin

This breakfast muffin has not one, but TWO pieces of Canadian bacon, cheese and eggs – all for 250 calories ! Compare that to the fast food breakfast sandwiches that weigh in between 300 and 500 calories and the choice is clear !

Peanut Butter Toast with Bananas

I stick to a handful of breakfasts that I rotate through during the week – it’s just easier and gets you out the door quicker. This is one of my favorites and is a great nutritious breakfast. And it really keeps me filled up until lunch. Try almond butter or cashew butter instead to change it up !

Put in 2 at a time if you have room the bowl. Cook 3 minutes each side.

Breakfast Wrap DuJour

I mix and match this one all week long. Sometimes Canadian bacon slices are substituted, sometimes shredded low fat cheddar, sometimes mushrooms – pretty much anything you would throw into an omelette works well here.

1 serving
348 calories per serving

1 Smart Delicious Wrap (100 calorie version)
Pam spray
Β½ cup Egg Beaters
3 slices lean turkey bacon
1 Light Laughing Cow cheese wedge
2 T salsa
ΒΌ c avocado slices
Salt and pepper to taste

Heat the wrap in the microwave for 15 seconds if they have been refrigerated – this helps them to roll better. Cook turkey bacon according to package instructions and set aside. Heat a small frying pan on med high heat. Remove from heat and spray with Pam. Return to heat and add the Egg Beaters to the pan. Add salt and pepper. Reduce heat to medium. Scramble eggs until set.

Lay the wrap on a plate and spread the cheese evenly over the wrap. Lay the three slices of bacon in the center (be sure to leave a little room at the bottom for folding). Add the eggs in a strip down the center. Spoon the salsa over the eggs. Fold one side over, fold up a bit of the bottom, then fold the other side over to make a wrapped burrito. Serve avocado slices on the side.
