This week is Breakfast Week  (24th – 30th January) which is an annual celebration of the most important meal of the day! The campaign is run on behalf of UK cereal growers and processors and aims to encourage people to Shake Up Your Wake Up and eat breakfast every day.

Although we never miss breakfast in this household we are guilty of all having our daily favourites (Cheerios and Weetabix) so today I’m sharing these super easy to make and healthy Banana Breakfast Balls. Baby J is a HUGE fan of bananas so I originally made this recipe for him but as they’re so delicious and full of good stuff I’ve also started to eat them before I head out for a run to give me a boost.

Ingredients:

  • 2 – 3 really ripe bananas
  • 1 cup of oats
  • 1/4 cup of almond milk
  • Cinnamon
  • optional extras – coconut, nuts, choc chips

2. Add all the rest of the ingredients and mix

3. Drop a large teaspoon of the mixture into a mini muffin tin and bake for around 10 – 15 minutes at 180 degrees (celsius) until golden.

These never usually last longer than a day as they are so delicious fresh but if there’s any left over I store in an air tight container or freeze and take out a few hours before to defrost or defrost in the microwave.

If you’re little ones love these why not try our most popular baby led weaning recipe – broccoli and cheese muffins. We make these all the time and change up what we put in them. Even the older kids love them and like to help make them.
