Breakfast

 

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, right? Sometimes life gets a little busy; whether it’s an early work meeting, a gym session, or dropping the kids off to school, life shouldn’t get in the way of eating healthy breakfast. This month we have two hearing healthy recipes for you to try so you can grab breakfast/a treat no matter what your morning throws at you.

Both recipes below incorporate our favourite healthy hearing minerals. The nut butter is a good source of zinc, and the yogurt is a good source of potassium.

Let us know if you try any of our recipe suggestions – we would love to see your pictures. Enjoy!

 

Nut Butter Granola

Ingredients

  • 2 cups rolled oats (large flakes work really well here)

  • ½ cup unsalted nuts of your choice

  • 2 tablespoons of nut butter of your choice

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil

  • 2 tablespoons of maple syrup or honey

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Method

  1. Over a medium to low heat, soften your nut butter, sweetener and coconut oil.

  2. Add in your dry ingredients to the wet mixture (oats, nuts and cinnamon) and mix well.

  3. Once evenly coated, spread the oats onto a baking tray and bake at 175 degrees Celsius for 10 minutes. Remove from oven, stir and return for 5-10 minutes more, ensuring oats don’t burn.

  4. Let cool on baking sheet before transferring to an airtight container. Serve with yogurt or milk and some fruit.

 

Greek Yogurt Bark

Ingredients

  • 2 cups plain Greek yogurt  

  • 2 tablespoons of maple syrup or honey

  • 2 tablespoons of mix-in’s eg. dried cranberries, dried apricots, raisins

  • 2 tablespoons of toppings eg. dark chocolate chips, desiccated coconut, chopped nuts

Method

  1. Mix your Greek yogurt and sweetener (syrup/honey) until everything is incorporated.

  2. Stir in your mix-in choices and spread your yogurt onto a plastic wrap lined baking sheet. You can decide how thick you would like your bark here.

  3. Top with your toppings and place in the freezer until completely frozen.

  4. You can cut or break your bark apart and store in containers in the freezer until needed.
