Everyone knows breakfast is the most important meal of the day. If you skip it, you’re more likely to overeat during lunch or dinner. And nobody wants that, right? Breakfast is also the best time of the day to treat yourself because you still have the whole day ahead of you, and you’ll get a chance to burn off these calories. However, few of us have the time or the desire to make something elaborate for breakfast. So here’s a handy list of three-ingredient breakfast that are quick and yummy and require minimal amount of effort to prepare.
1. Monday Pancakes
Ingredients: 1,5 cups of almond flour, 3 eggs, 1 ripe banana (and a teaspoon of baking powder if you want them to be fluffy)
Did you know you only need 3 ingredients for pancakes? Well, ok, maybe 4 if you want them to be really fluffy. But that’s it. And making them is so easy. You just blend everything together and fry ‘em up. You can eat them with any toppings you like, but we suggest strawberries and some almond butter.
2. Tuesday Chia Pudding
Ingredients: ¼ cup of chia seeds, plant milk of choice, honey to taste (some optional toppings)
Chia pudding is a great option for a quick breakfast. It’s full of healthy omega 3 fats, fiber and it’s great for those who have problems with bloating. Just mix everything in a glass the night before and in the morning you’ll have a delicious breakfast that you can top with fruits and berries if you want.
3. Wednesday Bagels
Ingredients: bagel, cream cheese, any topping
This one is pretty self-explanatory. Just put all the things on the bagel. You can mix and match a lot here. Cream cheese and strawberries is a good combo, but so is cream cheese and salmon. You can also go for avocado and egg, or avo and some tabasco. So many options!
Pro tip: toast the bagel first. It’s way tastier that way.
4. Thursday Eggs And Bacon Cups
Ingredients: eggs, bacon, spices
You might think making eggs and bacon doesn’t really take that long, and you’re right. Just a couple of minutes and your breakfast is ready. But if you’d rather spent those minutes putting on makeup instead of hovering over the skillet – try making eggs and bacon cups in the oven.
5. Friday Avocado Toast
Ingredients: bread, avocado, spices (eggs are optional)
I mean, there’s a reason this was the most popular breakfast in 2017, and we’re pretty sure it’s here to stay. Avocado toast is such a classic. And it’s so easy to make. You can just spread the avocado on toast and put some salt or hot sauce on top. Or you can go the extra mile and have an egg with it too.
6. Saturday Almond And Coconut Bars
Ingredients: 1 cup of almonds, 1 cup of coconut flakes, ¼ cup of maple syrup. (salt if you want a more interesting taste)
These bars are delicious and go great with your morning cup of coffee. And you can make a lot of them in advance. To make them you just mix everything together, pour onto a baking sheet lined with parchment, press down so it’s tightly packed and bake for about 30 minutes. Let them cool completely and cut into bars.
7. Sunday Banana Pancakes
Ingredients: 1 ripe banana, 2 eggs, a pinch of cinnamon
Nothing beats pancakes for breakfast. But having them every day might lead to some unwanted weight gain, so here’s a healthy and quick way of making pancakes that requires no flour. All you need is a ripe banana, 2 eggs and some cinnamon. Mix together, fry on a non-stick skillet, and enjoy your guilt free pancakes.
