Need a little healthy breakfast inspiration? Or perhaps a post-workout snack? Then you, my friend, are in the right place.
This sweet cinnamon omelette created by nutritionist Monique Cormack is perfect for nearly any situation. Not only is it super easy to make but it’s also packed full of protein and full of nutrients. Trust us, you need this recipe in your life.
2-3 tbsp milk of choice
½ tsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp maple syrup
1 cup frozen mixed berries
⅓ – ½ cup Greek or coconut yoghurt
Handful of your favourite granola, for topping (optional)
Olive oil, coconut oil or butter, for cooking the omelette
Place frozen berries in a small saucepan and add ¼ cup of water. Cook over the stove on a low heat until warm and thickened, stirring occasionally. Set aside.
Whisk together eggs, milk, cinnamon and maple syrup. Heat a non-stick pan up to a moderate heat and add a teaspoon of oil or butter.
Pour in the egg mixture and cook until almost set, then flip and cook for a minute more.
Slide the omelette out onto a plate. Spread one half with yoghurt, then the berry compote, then fold the other half of the omelette over on top. Scoop over any remaining berry compote and sprinkle over granola, if using. Enjoy immediately.
If you don’t like flipping omelettes, an alternative cooking option is to make the omelette in an oven-safe fry pan and finish it quickly in the oven. To do this, preheat your oven to 180C before you start cooking the omelette. Start making the omelette on the stove as above, but when it’s starting to set, pop it in the oven for 3-5 minutes to cook the top. Too easy and no need to flip!
Fresh berries can be used in place of frozen berries. You can cook them into a compote or simply use them fresh as they are.
