Kick Starting the Day


After the crazy up and down weather the Melbourne has been having, waking up to sun shinging through my window was absolutely amazing. Despite the fact that it woke me up a little earlier than I had planned on waking up, there’s something particularly exciting about starting your day with warm weather.

Not only was today’s breakfast incredibly quick and easy to make, but it is also that kind of perfect breakfast to have while sitting outside in the sun

1 1/2 cups rolled oats

3/4 cups oat flour

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 cup maple syrup

1/2 cup rice bran oil

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 tablespoon falxseed

1 banana

1/2 cup chopped dark chocolate


Start by making the oat flour. This is literally as easy as pulse some rolled oats until it becomes the consistency of flour.


In a bowl combine the oats and the oat flour


Stir in the rest of the ingredients



Roll tablespoon sized balls of mixture and place on baking sheet


Press down each ball with the back of a fork


Bake in oven for 7-10 on 175C



I served with a spice almond smoothie bowl topped with: banana, strawberry, pomegranate, raspberry, dark chocolate, coconut, and lemon rind (the recipe for the smoothie bowl can be found in a previous post)



As well as lemon, and mint infused water in my MJLSO drinking jar (yes, in case you haven’t noticed I am completely obsessed with it!)
