I find myself skipping breakfast more often than I should, terrible I know. My primary focus is making sure everybody eats and by the time they’re done we all need to leave the house. We live fast-paced lives, but that doesn’t make it okay to skip the most important meal the day. The practical solution would be to find quick and easy breakfast recipes that will work even on your busiest days.

I’ve been playing around with some new WEET-BIX recipes on the WEET- BIX Mobi site and I have a couple of new favourites. Today I would like to share with you 5 ways to level up your breakfast.

Be adventurous

Don’t be afraid to try out new recipes. I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered that WEET-BIX can be genuinely enjoyed in so many different ways. Try to switching things up to make breakfast a little bit more interesting for the whole family.

Keep it Healthy

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, if you do it right the benefits can last all day long. WEET-BIX is all about wholesome goodness. It contains 97% wholegrains, no preservatives or colourants and high in fibre.  And it’s one of only two breakfasts that are endorsed by CANSA.

Shake it up

This is the ideal breakfast for those mornings when you’re on the move and don’t have enough time to sit down and eat breakfast. Not only is the Banana and Berry Bliss smoothie quick and easy to make it’s also delicious.

Ingredients

  • WEET-BIX biscuits
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup mixed berries
  • 1/2 cup warm milk

Method

  1. Pour WEET-BIX, milk, banana and berries into blender, then blend until smooth.
  2. Pour into a glass/flask and enjoy on the go.

Take Away

The Breakfast Bar is probably my favourite recent breakfast discovery. The beauty about it is you can make a couple of these and simply pop them in the fridge or freezer. Perfect for nibbling whilst you’re on your way to work.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup WEET-BIX, crushed
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups fruit and nut mix
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp margarine, melted
  • 2 tbsp honey

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 170°C. Line a 20×30 cm lamington tin with baking paper.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, WEET-BIX, oats, sugar and fruit and nut mix.
  3. Mix egg, milk, margarine and honey together, then combine with dry ingredients. Press into prepared tin and bake for 25-30 minutes.
  4. Cool, then cut into bars.

Traditional with a twist

This recipe is for my die hard WEET-BIX fans, like my husband. He genuinely loves to eat his cereal the good old traditional way, with warm milk and honey. This recipe is not very different from that, but you just add strawberries and assorted nuts to shake things up a little.

Maintaining a healthy and balanced lifestyle is not easy, but if you start your day with a healthy breakfast you will be well on your way to living the kind of lifestyle you’ve always desired. What do you normally eat for breakfast on a busy morning? Let me know in the comments below.
