This is a great make-ahead recipe for those mornings when you just don’t have time to make anything. Cut them into bars or slices for a quick grab-and-go breakfast. Packed with protein, healthy fats and fiber my Nutty Breakfast Bake is sure to make your start to the day a good one.
Nutty Breakfast Bake
- 1 cup nuts (I used a mix of almonds and walnuts)
- 1 cup seeds (I used a mix of sunflower and pumpkin seeds)
- 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1 cup oats (use gluten-free if you have a sensitivity to gluten)
- 1 very ripe banana
- 1/2 cup dried fruit (cranberries, raisins, blueberries, apricots, etc)
- 2 eggs (or egg replacer to make it vegan)
- 1 Tbsp blackstrap molasses (optional- for added iron)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
- ground cinnamon or your favorite spice
Preheat over to 350 degrees F. In a food processor add the nuts and seeds and grind into a powder or almost powder consistency. Add the shredded coconut and oats and pulse to blend. Add the banana and dried fruit, pulse to blend. Finally, add the egg and remaining ingredients (if using) blend until mixture is combined. Pour into a pie plate and spread it evenly over the dish. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven, let cool (if you can wait) and serve. Enjoy!

The Back To School Session is August 4th-August 24th but you must enroll by August 1st! I know how it is. The approaching new school year is full of excitement, anticipation and nerves. There’s a lot on your to-do list: buying new clothes for the kids, getting their school supplies, filling up your planner with school events, games and projects. But don’t forget the most important thing to pencil in your shiny new calendar book: YOU. Yes, YOU! Are you making sure your scheduling in time to take care of yourself so you have the energy and stamina to keep up with the busy school year?? Getting to the gym, making healthy meals and getting proper nutrition are essential to keep you going. Aren’t you tired of relying on coffee and lattes to give you that (artificial) boost of energy to make it to the next thing on your to-do list? A few Starbucks drinks can add up to be pretty pricey, you know. Why not invest that money into yourself? Committing to becoming your healthiest self this year so you can tackle all that comes your way.

A Special Note To Teachers
Let’s make the start to this school year the best yet! You’re going to THRIVE this year – not just survive. I’m talking to you, my teacher friends. I know you’ve been prepping lesson plans, getting your classrooms ready and trying to get everything in order way before the school year even starts. You’re job isn’t seasonal. You’re always thinking of ways to help your classroom kids. You get up at the crack-of-dawn and don’t get home until well past dinner time most nights only to have a pile of papers, homework and tests to grade. I believe you need this 21 days the most. I know it might seem like one more thing to add to your calendar but that’s why this program is so amazing. You do it on your schedule. Plus, the information you’ll learn to keep you healthy and happy through the school year is invaluable. You’ll learn how to balance your blood sugar to avoid those energy hi’s and low’s while keeping your mood nice and even. Yep, you’ll have the stamina to keep up with all of your classroom kiddos and be ready for that surprise evaluation anytime.
Oh, and I know you’ve been secretly correcting my grammar while reading this 😉
