Skinny Mini Banana Pancakes: Whole wheat flour, brown sugar, and just a touch of banana extract make these pancakes undeniably good. These were topped with fresh bananas and sugar-free syrup, but you could also add some powdered sugar or other fresh fruit for additional flavor.


Skinny Crustless Quiche: This crustless quiche is just over-the-top delicious (and gorgeous!) and even tastier when you serve it with low-carb toast and sugar-free jelly on the side! This recipe screams Super Mom!


Skinny Avocado Egg Scramble: This fulfilling breakfast only takes 10 minutes to prep and cook, and it adds a ton of flavor to the simple scrambled egg. The best skinny trick for eggs is to mix two egg whites with one whole egg. The egg yolk from the whole egg is able to flavor the egg whites and provide the yellow color we know and love, all without adding the fat.


Skinny Slow Cooker Oats: There are dozens of recipes floating around on Pinterest for Slow Cooker Oats, all promising the same thing, to awake to breakfast deliciousness! Well, this one delivers! With just a little sweetener and some fresh blueberries, this will be a new go-to favorite.

Autumn Apple Oat Bars: These bars can easily fool your kids into thinking they’re having apple pie for breakfast! They will never know that they’re actually eating a natural brain booster filled with fiber and nutrition. Natural sweetness of all the ingredients is just enough to mask any “healthy taste.” The apples and cinnamon pair perfectly, and if you warm this up for about 12 seconds in the microwave, you may truly believe you’re eating a freshly baked apple pie!
