Quarantine Kitchen: Healthy Breakfasts

Okay so I haven’t decide if the title of this blog post is tasteless or quite catchy. I guess we shall see in the coming weeks of social isolation! I am extremely extroverted and feed off of social interaction so needless to say I am having a difficult time. The one thing that has been getting me through it is the realization that we are all in this together (trying not to sing that part). If you are having weird feelings and mixed emotions about what lies ahead in the coming weeks: so is everyone else!

Instead of keeping track of all the things I can’t do during this time in the world, I have decided to see how much I can do! One example is blog more than I’ve had the opportunity to do, and another is try out new healthy recipes to share with y’all.

So if the situation doesn’t change soon, I will be starting a series called, “Quarantine Kitchen” for all of my fellow college students who now have a full sized fridge and stove. See!! This isn’t such a bad thing afterall.

I understand a trip to the grocery store right now has proven fruitless (literally no bananas in sight last time I made the brave journey to Walm*rt), so I will still keep the ingredient list super short and with items you probably already have in your kitchen.

Oat flour Pandemic Pancakes


So short story even shorter I bought an entire container Quaker oats that have gone untouched. Until now! For these delicious and healthy pancakes you will need rolled oats, an egg, chocolate chips*, water or milk, syrup/honey/agave, baking soda and baking powder or cream of tartar.

You will also need a blender or food processor for this recipe, but since we’re all home it shouldn’t be hard to come by one of the two in a dusty cabinet.

  1. In your food processor or blender pour in 1-2 cups of rolled oats and blend. This will make your oat flour. Chances are you won’t need all of the flour but you can use it in many other healthy recipes.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together an egg, your syrup or sweetener of your choosing, 2 tablespoons water or milk, and a dash of baking soda and baking powder or cream of tarter.
  3. *Add in any toppings or flavorings! I added some PB Fit Powder for some extra protein and chocolate chips because, well, do I need a reason to add chocolate chips to pancakes? I attempted to add frozen blueberries to this recipe but the mixture makes thin pancakes that didn’t hold the blueberries in place.
  4. Add in oat flour slowly until you get a thick consistency.
  5. Onto a greased skillet, pour about a tablespoons worth.
  6. Flip after 1-3 minutes.
  7. Enjoy!

I have yet to find a healthy pancakes recipe that makes a full sized pancake so be on the lookout. Something about the size of these pancakes are so…cute?

At Home Acai Bowl

So if you’re anything like me, the freezer in your house doesn’t really close unless you slam it shut at 60 mph. I am entirely to blame because I have so many frozen strawberries, bananas, blueberries, etc, etc that have been there since the summer. Now is the time to use what ya got people!

This recipe also requires a blender or food processor.

  1. In your blender or food processor add in about 1 cup of your frozen fruit. Some of my absolute favorite combinations are: Bananas + PB Powder + Cocoa Powder, Bananas + Strawberries, Strawberries + Blueberries + Raspberries.
  2. Add in a splash of Non-Dairy Milk of your choosing. If you want a smoother consistency add more milk, and if you want it to be more like ice cream keep it to a minimum.
  3. Blend, Blend, Blend!
  4. Once everything is blended together, pour into a bowl and top with fresh fruit, coconut flakes, granola, or chocolate chips.

Everything but the Pantry Breakfast Burrito

In all of this craziness, I think it’s important to eat some comfort food. Some easy to make, delicious, comforting food. One of these for me is the breakfast burrito. This breakfast requires basic ingredients you most likely already have: eggs, a tortilla wrap, salt, pepper and anything else you think you’d like to add.

If you know how to make scrambled eggs you can make a BOMB breakfast burrito.

  1. In a bowl whisk one egg and add in a dash of salt and pepper.
  2. Turn on a stove burner and pour in egg mixture.
  3. Before it begins to solidify add chopped bacon, diced tomato, a lil onion and whatever else your heart desires!
  4. Have a tortilla ready by the side of the stove or skip out if you wanna go low carb
  5. Once egg mixture has become scrambled, take off heat and pour into the center of your tortilla
  6. Add some hot sauce if you dare!
  7. Roll up your burrito and enjoy a tasty a filling breakfast!

Stove TOP Berry Oatmeal

Since my spring semester as a Topper got cut short, let’s make some delicious stove TOP oatmeal! If you’ve read any of my other blog posts, you’ll know my routine in college was to make a bowl instant oatmeal with peanut butter and a banana before starting my busy day at school. I have plenty of time to cook breakfast now, so I thought, “Let’s make the most out of it!”

For this you will need: Rolled oats, Water, Non-Dairy Milk (I used Almond), and a mixed bag of frozen berries.

  1. Pour 1/2 cups of water and 1/2 cups of milk into a pot and bring to a boil on your stove top.
  2. Add in your frozen fruit and let boil for 1 minutes.
  3. Add about 1/2 cup of rolled oats and stir together with the fruit.
  4. Let boil for another 5 minutes.
  5. Take off heat and enjoy the best oatmeal of your life. I topped it with a banana and it made it so delicious.

Thanks so much for checking out the blog! Be sure to come back soon to learn how to make the most of your quarentine!

See what I did there ah ha ha.

Too soon? Ya too soon.
