Yes, you heard that correctly. At the Womanista offices, we’re all about living a healthy lifestyle, but we’re also all about treating ourselves. What’s life without a little -- or a lot -- of chocolate here and there?
Now you can combine the most important meal of the day with everyone’s favorite ingredient without blowing all of your calories and sacrificing your healthy-eating goals.
Soft, chewy, vegan, gluten-free and made in ten minutes, these indulgent bars are great for on-the-go breakfasts and a kid-friendly option for lunches or snacks.
You can’t go wrong with banana bread on its own; so, adding a coconut element takes this breakfast bread to a whole new league. Healthy swaps like agave instead of sugar make this lower-calorie version a nutritious breakfast staple.
Filled with fiber and whole grains from the oats and loads of antioxidants from the raspberries, this satisfying breakfast is as healthy as it is pretty. Plus, the greek yogurt ups the protein count to keep you full all morning long.
These pancakes are gluten-free, 100% whole grain and packed with protein, not to mention insanely delicious. Using banana for natural sweetness and flax seed meal for added fiber, mix in your favorite chocolate protein powder and go to town on a big stack of these guilt-free cakes.
A twist on the classic overnight oats recipe, you’ll love this version that you’ll swear is dessert and not a healthy, nutritious breakfast. Feel free to omit the dark chocolate chips to lower the sugar content and replace with cacao nibs, which are just as decadent.
This creamy pudding will satisfy your sweet tooth while keeping you on track with its natural sweeteners and vegan and gluten-free ingredients. Plus, it’s fully customizable, meaning you can use anything you have in your pantry. Don’t have any dates? Maple syrup or honey will get the job done.
Why spend money on nutritional bars when you can make them at home for less, without sacrificing any of the taste? This version is basically a healthy candy bar using only five ingredients and a food processor.
If you’ve never put zucchini in a baked good, you’re missing out on one of the easiest ways to sneak nutritious veggies in a sweet treat (with absolutely no zucchini taste). The hidden vegetable adds tons of moisture to the muffins, making them an amazing consistency filled with other wholesome ingredients like applesauce and coconut oil.
All you need for this divine breakfast is seven simple ingredients, 30 minutes and one big pot. And don’t count on getting hungry again any time soon; just one cup of cooked quinoa contains eight grams of protein, five grams of fiber and loads of iron and magnesium.
