The no-granola breakfast bar

Happy Weekend all!
I’m interrupting this week’s restaurant recipe theme to share something simple to start your day. If I were ever to open a restaurant (it won’t happen) it would be focused on the morning meal.

Here is a simple breakfast buffet that takes minutes to put together and would fun for a holiday morning when you’re hosting overnight guest who may have different dietary preferences.

Pour some tea and gather some ingredients that have different flavours and textures.

My pantry and fridge yielded: goji berries, pumpkin seeds, blueberries, almond butter (I stirred in some cinnamon) and a mixture of buckwheat groats and rolled oats.

I created a creamy base of banana softserve – two ripe bananas processed until smooth in my food processor – and then poured on the toppings.

Colourful and full of flavour.
A really delicious way to start your day.

I am thinking that this would be a great option for Christmas morning. It certainly tastes like a celebration.

What ingredient would be on your breakfast bar?

    Lisa, you are such an inspiration! I'm going to make this now! Always good to have bananas in the freezer!

    what a yummy idea!

    oh wow, i love banana soft serve, never considered it for breakfast…until now!

    Looks delicious!

    I'll be blogging about breakfast too – on Monday. The difference between yours and mine is that I wiz my ingredients in my trusty Vitamix and put them in a glass to go 🙂

    Yay for healthy breakfasts.

    I am definitely going to use this idea for my family on Christmas morning. Thank you for this post!

    Great idea. I tend to overload my cereals and oats just like that. it's a good thing.

    Nom! That's really close to what my breakfasts look like – and to what my granola bars look like, too!

    What a great idea! I misunderstood the 'bar' in the title, but what you're showing looks very pleasing indeed. For those of us that can't have bananas, I guess some sort of coconut kefir/chia mix might work…

    This reminds me of those make-your-own-sundae ice cream buffets. . . except this is all healthy, and it's for breakfast!! My dreams have just been fulfilled. . . 😉

    Yay! You're all invited to brunch at my place. I'm glad you liked my "bar" idea. Ela, I meant it both ways – tricky I guess.
