Lots of people may benenfit from a bigger breakfast. For example, those with PCOS, metabolic syndrome, high cholesterol, or diabetes. However, the big benenfits can be seen in those that really focus on increasing protein and fibre. You can see from the nutritional breakdown that this recipe does exactly that.

However, I’d like to point out that 670 calories isn’t a big breakfast for a lot of people. Even if you needed to stick to 2000 calorie a day, spreading your nutrition out evenly across all 3 meals would mean about 670 calories at each meal.


  • 120g oats
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 bananas
  • 60g almond butter
  • 100ml milk
  • 2 pears
  • 200g Greek yoghurt (5%)

(serves 2)

How to make it

  • Blend the bananas, eggs, milk and peanut butter.
  • Pour on top of the oats and baking powder.
  • Mix well and scoop into an oven proof greased dish.
  • Place the sliced pear on top.
  • Bake for 180 degrees for 25 minutes
  • If I had cherry/ raspberry compote to serve with this, I would. Greek yoghurt is lovely smeared on top!

Nutritional Information

  • 670 calories
  • 28 protein
  • 15g fibre

Additional info

🍐pears are fab when it comes to fibre. If 15g of fibre is too much for your gut, omit it. It’ll still be yum. This will drop the fibre by about 6g. 

Almond butter would be unreal, especially with flaked almonds on top. Remember: almonds are part of a cholesterol lowering diet ❤️

Kids would need a half portion so if making it for everyone use 180g of oats, 3 bananas, 3 eggs, 150ml milk and 90g peanuts butter. 

I’ll be using this when weaning my baby onto solids. I’ll use smooth peanut butter after I’ve assessed for allergy (I’ll also check for allergy to milk & eggs). 

Will mix it up too and add the likes of grated apple 🍎 and carrot 🥕 with spices. I won’t be using honey until she’s over 1. In fact, I don’t sweeten any kids stuff unless required or requested!
