If your house is anything like mine, breakfast time can be a mad house, without having to add confusion about what to eat, thrown in the mix.
With what we eat at Breakfast, setting the tone for the day, it would be great to have a quick go-to recipe, right?

I batch these up & serve for breakfast, in packed lunches & for picnics....& they are always a win!
This recipe is a hit in my recipe book, and serves up as one of the recipes on my Online Goddess Program (which is yours forever once you enroll!)
Twice a year we have an intake of my Online Goddess program & whilst you get all the bite-size videos, cheat-sheets & done-for-you shoppiing lists & specific female-focused advice.....you also get huge support from myself & the other Goddesses on the same journey as you via the private facebook group.
This program is for you if your hormones are running amuck...they govern how we feel & ultimately how our metabolism functions. It's time to give yourself the gift of feeling fabulous again.
If you are sick of fad diets, and want to get true lasting wellness, come & join our Goddesses...I know you will love it!

Here is a recipe that can be eaten raw, as well as baked. As a bonus, of course, this is a health-ified recipe. So perfect for a Friday night treat! (Getting your thumbs in to make it a biscuit is also very fun.)

Hands up who loves a pancake?
It's useful to know you can have your pancakes & stay on track with your health!
This is a firm family favourite & its just too good not to share it with you ready for pancake day.
For busy mornings, I batch ahead & store in the fridge for up to 3 days. They pop into the toaster for a quick re-heat!
Let me know how you get on & if you have a friend that loves a panckae please share this with them & spread the love.
I love this time of year for baking. We've been getting our pinnies on & baking the evening away with my boy, ready for the relatives to arrive.
1st up on our list is the quinoa flapjack. Pronounced keen-wa & naturally gluten-free (it's actually a seed). It's a great swap if you don't do oats & has way more protein (great for feeling satisfied for longer).
I love that quinoa is high in magnesium. Magnesium is a powerful de-stressing mineral, which is also great for sleep. I thought that would be a great combo this time of year!
I hope you enjoy baking this quick recipe as much as us! If you do try it out, be sure to tag me @vitality_jana on Insta or tag me on Facebook. I always love seeing your creations.
