If you’ve ever done a round of Whole 30, then you know what the monotony of having eggs every morning for breakfast can be like. When I found this clean version of what I like to call my Oat-less Oatmeal, I was uneasy and unsure if I would even like it. I mean, who scrambles eggs with bananas? Sounded so gross to me.
But don’t be fooled by the strange idea of banana and eggs like I was. This is hands down my favorite Whole30 Approved breakfast recipe.
I realize this breakfast lacks veggies (which you should definitely focus on at breakfast if you’re trying to achieve maximum results on Whole30, but this is a great option to throw in every once in a while when you just can’t eat another egg (yeah, I realize there are eggs in there, but trust me, you do not feel like you are eating eggs!) And I love that the combinations of toppings is endless. You can have fun with it and mix things up. My favorite combo is strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, almonds, pecans, a dash of cinnamon and some extra almond milk. So good!!!
I tend to make this recipe when my bananas have gone too ripe and I don’t want to toss them out. (Remember you can always freeze those suckers for a delicious paleo ice cream treat, but I digress). I hope you’ll give it a try. I have dozens of friends and family who have come back to me after making this recipe to say that it is literally their new favorite recipe! Give it a try, won’t you?
Banana Egg Scramble
My SINGLE SERVING version of Oat-less Oatmeal
- 1 Tbl coconut oil
- 1 ripe banana (more ripe = more sweet)
- 2 eggs
- almond milk (coconut milk is great too)
- 1 Tbl Chia Seeds
- seasonal fruit (my favorite is strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries)
- raw nuts: pecans, almonds, cashews, walnuts, macadamia, etc.
- raw shelled hemp seed
- raw cacao nibs
- unsweetened coconut flakes
- additional milk
To make one serving: melt coconut oil in a small pan over med/low heat. Add your banana and mash with a fork. Allow banana to soften and become fragrant.
Next, add in 2 eggs and mix them in with the banana. Continue to cook as you would scrambled eggs. Before the eggs set, add in a splash of almond milk (how much depends on how you like the consistency of your oatmeal) and some chia seeds. Incorporate and continue cooking until eggs are cooked through and desired consistency is reached.
To serve, pour banana egg scramble into a bowl and top with your berries, nuts, and any other toppings you would like. Add one more splash of almond milk and enjoy! Remember to be creative with your toppings and eat what you love!
This recipe is easily doubled and tripled for the whole family to enjoy!
