Recipe: Single Serve Banana Chocolate Chip Breakfast Bake

Single Serve Banana Chocolate Chip Bake - Oven or Microwave Recipe - Gluten free, healthy, low fat, sugar free

Mornings have been busssssssssssssssssssssy in the Southern In-Law house lately. I'm up at 6am, straight in the shower and then out to get dressed and get my hair and makeup done before making Jesse and myself breakfast, eating said breakfast whilst madly reading and replying to emails, putting together lunches for Jesse and I and then rushing out the door at 7:20am.

When mornings are like this, breakfast needs to be fast and breakfast bakes are my go-to. Usually I make them in advance and all I have to do is pop some nut butter on top, grab a fork or spoon and devour. 

However, after coming back from Louisiana, I was seriously craving a breakfast bake but didn't have a single one in the freezer - so I had to get creative. A spotty, brown banana was calling out to be used and I decided to put together a simple single serve Banana Breakfast Bake (with chocolate chips because hey, chocolate makes everything better) that could be made either in the microwave (for a super quick decadent tasting breakfast) or in the oven (if you have some extra time on your hands) 

And boy, oh boy, was it delicious!
So let me give you the recipe >>

Six Sentence Sunday: 27 July 2014

I reaaallyyy wanted to post a recipe yesterday, but as our only day off until next Saturday (which is going to be busy!), I decided it was more important to spend time with my husband and Supernatural.

Everyone thinks it's silly and somewhat childish, but I loveeeeeeeee surprising Jesse with little treats here and there because he is so thankful for them - this week it was some mini German Chocolates he tried at our bible study group and loved.

We had a lovely morning at Church this morning and I'm just about to head back for a meeting with our Women's Ministry group!

I have one more week of nannying and then I'm back to real work before birthday season!

My Dad's Birthday, my birthday and one of our family friends, Mel's, birthday are all within a three week period so we're going go-carting and then out for icecream as a combined birthday celebration!

I'm currently thinking up birthday party ideas for myself just so that I have an excuse to get all of my friends together - as our potluck get togethers have been a huge success in the past we're currently thinking of either a dessert party or a "favourite things" party where everyone brings along their absolute favourite recipe.

But tell me, how has your weekend been? 
What is your absolute favourite recipe that you make?
And how do you like to celebrate your birthday?

Recent Things: Nannying, Kristy Christmas and Broken Husbands?!

Well, things have been CRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAZY this week in our world. I feel like we've been chasing our tails since getting back from Louisiana as we're playing catch up from when we're away. We've had something on every single day and I've been helping some friends out by looking after their littles (and I remembered just how longggggg 11 hour nannying days are) and this weekend and next week are going to be hectic as well!

I feel like we all need to take a big breath innnnnnnnnnnnnnnn and then make a big relieved sigh because at least it's Friday! (Even though that means things are only going to get busier around here, ha!)

Recipe: Savoury Mushroom Rice Bowl

I think you guys know by now that I love a weird combination or two. Goat cheese and nutella sandwiches, vegemite pasta, avocado, almond and raisin brown rice salad and vegemite pizza flatbreads,.... But why do I love weird combinations?

Well because with all of my allergies and intolerances there are limited foods which I can eat, so I have to get creative! 

This recipe came about on a night where I had veeeeeeeery little in the fridge. No cream cheese, no avocadoes, no meat - I was scraping bits and pieces together to make dinner and what I created was actually wonderful and ridiculously simple.

Now, I'll admit it soundsssssssssss a little odd - but it sure is delicious so let me give you the recipe >>
