Breakfast Challenge Day 07, Egg Mayo Open Toast…..and we are done!

So it’s the end of the self assigned breakfast challenge which I put myself through in an attempt to end this feud that me and my first were going through.

Combatting tears and tantrums over breakfast had me over the edge every single day. At the end of the week though, I realized that my baby is growing up. I need to give him room for decision making. Not just at breakfast but even at day to day choices. The power of choice can be truly empowering in a good constructive way. I suppose I had to go through this exercise to realize that.

Moving on, hopefully him and me can reach midway to make our lives easier.

Here’s what he wanted to end his week with. It’s his absolute favorite item and he can have it for breakfast, lunch, dinner or even a snack!

  • Finely chopped spring onion and peppers or choice of topping
  • Drizzle of Olive oil (optional)

Breakfast Challenge Day 05, Quinoa Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Today was pancakes day and a chocolate chips one at that!

I decided to ditch the refined pancake flour and use Quinoa flour instead. The kids loved it however, I found it a little dry but nothing softens up pancakes like honey or condensed milk. A nice generous drizzle and I was set for breakfast.

For the kids, I dusted the top with some unsweetened cocoa powder and the kids were good to go!

  • Butter or Ghee for the skillet
