Chocolate and peanut butter breakfast bowl

Today I saw one of those quotes on Instagram which said that “only dull people are brilliant at breakfast” and apparently Oscar Wilde is┬áresponsible for this guff…

Well, Mr Wilde, first of all this sounds like a really bad excuse, like blaming others so that no one blames you…

Secondly, you don’t HAVE to be brilliant, you could just be good at it.

Thirdly, it sounds like you desperately lacked a bit of inspiration. It’s probably a bit late for you but for the others here is a little recipe made by moi, which isn’t dull but nutritious, quick (and a bit brilliant – shushh).

For one person you need:

  • 100g full fat Greek yoghurt
  • 1 scoop of chocolate protein powder (I use Solgar’s Whey to go)
  • 1 tsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • a dash of vanilla bean paste (I use Nielsen-Massey’s)
  • 2 tbsp. peanut butter powder (I use PB fit’s)
  • Some chia seeds

To make it look pretty like on the picture, you need to be a tad organised but if you’re not you could always chuck it all in and it might not look as pretty but it’ll be the same in terms of nutrition.

The night before, mix you peanut butter powder with some water to make a paste that is pourable without it being too runny. Put it in a small container (I use one of those kids mini snack boxes), making sure you’ve lined the container first with some cling film, and then sprinkle some chia seeds on top. Put in the freezer and go to bed.

In the morning, mix your yoghurt and vanilla and put in a (pretty) bowl.

In a separate bowl, mix the protein and cocoa powders and add some water to make it the consistency of chocolate sauce.

Take the peanut butter and chia seeds combo out of the freezer and cut it in small squares.

Pour your chocolate sauce on the yoghurt then add your squares.

Dig in and eat your heart out Oscar!
