3 Weekend Breakfast Ideas

Weekends are all about the little things like getting out of bed later than usual or enjoying your breakfast instead of rushing through it. As you guys know, I'm constantly trying new ways to make breakfast a lot more interesting - after all, it's the only reason why I get out of bed. In this post, I'll be featuring 3 types to breakfast that take less than 20 minutes to prepare. 

 

JUICE

This one is for those of you who prefer lighter breakfast or are in a hurry as this is definitely the quickest of them all. You can really get creative with juices! Some juices you can try: Apple, pear and a slice of lemon/watermelon lemonade. Or if you prefer to start off the day with H2O, try fruit-infused water. My personal favourite combination is mint leaves and cucumber. Not only is it refreshing, it leaves your breath smelling fresh.


WAFFLES

What's a perfect weekend morning for me? THESE WAFFLES and a glass of iced milk tea or OJ. I have these almost every other week, even on weekdays, as you can probably see. But honestly, there's no better way to start the weekend! Also, I don't see anything wrong with having your kitchen smell of freshly made waffles. Mmhmm

OVERNIGHT PARFAIT

WHAT YOU'LL NEED:

Jar with a lid
Yogurt
Oats (I personally prefer using instant oats over rolled oats because of the texture and the time it takes to prepare)
Fruits
Nutella

DIRECTIONS:

1. Grab a jar, pour in some yogurt then oats, then yogurt and repeat till you're close to the brim. Pop it back into the fridge till the next day.

2. Before serving, prepare the toasted instant oats by mixing 4 tablespoons of oats with 2 tablespoons of nutella (yep, you saw that right!)

3. Once it is well mixed together, pop it into to oven to toast for about 8-10 minutes at 160°C. Different ovens have different heat setting to be sure to constantly check on them. We want toasted not burnt oats.

4. Finally, top off your parfait with crispy toasted oats, some fresh fruits, and honey or maple syrup if you like.

While testing this recipe out, I find that once you get the right amount of oats to nutella, your toasted oats will be sweet enough and honey/maple syrup is not necessary. Also, rolled oats do not have the same kind of crunch like instant oats do, so hence I prefer the latter for this. If you were to choose to use rolled oats, add another 10-15 minutes to step 3!

 

That is it from me! Hope you will give them a try this weekend!
