Broiled Brown Sugar Banana Pancakes

Serves: 8

Difficulty: Easy

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.

Sweet Potato Pizza

Difficulty: Medium

One of my favorite kinds of pizza is my Sweet Potato Pizza. It’s not your stereotypical pizza, as most Americans envision. It doesn’t use any marinara sauce, doesn’t have any of the standard toppings, yet is delightfully flavorful and unique in its own right. The sweetness of the cheese paired with the savory richness of the caramelized onion and oven-roasted sweet potatoes makes for an absolutely delicious end product that’s sure to please!

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!

Banana Blueberry Oatmeal Bars

Serves: 12

Time: 1 hour

Difficulty: Easy

I recently found this recipe for Banana Blueberry Bars from Forks Over Knives, and knew I had to try it. They are moist and fluffy — similar to a banana bread or muffin — and providing a healthy, filling, and delicious treat to provide lasting energy. As an added bonus, they are both vegetarian- and vegan-friendly, so they can be enjoyed by everyone. And as a new recipe that I was trying, I get to add it to the list of recipes in my 50 in 15 Challenge.

Be forewarned: These bars are surprisingly addicting!

Peruvian Rice Pudding

Peruvian Rice Pudding

Serves: 8-10

Time: 50-60 min

Difficulty: Medium

As previously mentioned in the post for Groundnut (Peanut) Stew, my wife and I received a newsletter for each of our children that we sponsor through Compassion International, which contained a recipe for a native dish that is typically eaten by the child. Still inspired by the recipes and having already made the Groundnut (Peanut) Stew (a dish from Northern Uganda where our sponsor child Stuart lives), it was time to try the recipe for Rice Pudding, a dish from Peru, where our other sponsor child Patricia lives. Admittedly, I’ve never made or even eaten Rice Pudding, so I didn’t exactly know what to expect. But to my delight, the final result was very tasty. Definitely a dish I wouldn’t mind making again.
