This Saturday I was in the mood for making a nice new breakfast recipe, and found an amazing recipe for Broiled Brown Sugar Bananas in the Good Housekeeping 400 Calorie Meals cookbook. I decided to try it, but rather than just making them on their own, I chose to pair it with some homemade pancakes. The result was an amazingly tasty, warm, and comforting breakfast that I’ll gladly make again. So if you’re in the mood for a new twist on boring old pancakes, give this a try — it’s super easy, and is sure to please your taste buds.

Slow Cooker Banana Bread Oatmeal

Slow Cooker Banana Bread Oatmeal

Serves: 8

Time: 6-8 hours

Difficulty: Easy

For this morning’s breakfast, as my wife and I were hosting both of our parents, I decided to make an easy-to-prepare slow cooker meal. After a bit of searching, I found a recipe for Overnight Crockpot Banana Bread Oatmeal on the i heart eating website, and knew I had to make it. Why? Well, oatmeal is hands-down one of my favorite breakfasts. Also, banana bread is one of my mother’s most famous recipes that is my personal favorite comfort food that she makes. So pairing the banana bread flavor with oatmeal seemed like a perfect fit for a comfort food breakfast on a chilly college football Saturday.

In addition to pairing two of my favorite foods in one breakfast dish, this recipe also served another momentous purpose: It’s my 50th recipe for my 50 in 15 Challenge, officially wrapping up a successfully-completed challenge. The end result was indeed a comforting, delicious, and healthful bowl of pure goodness. It paired perfectly with a nice warm cup of coffee, a side of fresh fruit, and a few slices of my mom’s homemade banana bread (which she graciously brought down as a treat for us). If you’re in the mood for an easy set-it-and-forget-it breakfast, give this recipe a shot. You’ll be glad you did!

Difficulty: Easy

My wife shared a video for breakfast bread bowls with me the other day, and I knew I had to try them immediately. I’m not entirely sure of the source of the video, as it was posted and re-posted on Facebook by many people. Be that as it may, these savory bowls are pretty easy to make, and are very flexible when it comes to fillings. Be forewarned: These bowls are dangerously delicious. You will want to make them again and again!

Time: 30-40 min

Difficulty: Medium

The other night, my wife and I decided to have breakfast for dinner. And truthfully, ever since Taco Bell came out with their A.M. Crunchwrap, my wife has been wanting to try one. However, I’m vehemently opposed to most fast food, especially when it comes to breakfast options. As such, I agreed to try my hand at making a homemade breakfast crunchwrap for us, where I could be sure the ingredients were healthy and legitimate. No fake eggs, no questionable “meat”, and no doubt as to the cleanliness and quality of the kitchen and food prep. While making a homemade breakfast crunchwrap was definitely a more time-intensive endeavor than getting one at the drive-thru, the end result was definitely worth it. And as it turns out, it made for a perfect addition to my 50 in 15 Challenge.
