Well folks, summer is officially over. Even though we don’t have kids, we are still feeling the back to school crunch. Our morning commutes have nearly doubled thanks to buses and school traffic. That means that we are trying to get up a little bit earlier, but the easiest way to save time in the morning is by preparing as much as possible the night before. In addition to prepping lunches, I try to make some breakfast items on Sunday nights.
There are lots of convenient pre-made breakfast items, but I love to start my day with a lean protein. I have recently been trying to eat vegetarian until 5pm, and just having a small amount of grilled poultry or seafood with my dinner about three days a week. I always feel lighter and leaner when I eat less meat, but I do still need protein.
For a meat-free, protein-packed breakfast, I have been loving these no-bake breakfast bites. I make them in the blender on Sundays, ball them up into bite-sized pieces, and store them to enjoy all week long. The coconut and cacao together are an amazing combination.
The hero of these bites is really the new Kashi® Organic Breakfast Superblends. I ordered the Sun-Up Coconut Breakfast Superblend from Target.com and am so into the coconut flavor. It is really summery and fresh.
This plant based superblend is the perfect on-the-go energy for active lifestyles. It provides diverse nutrition from a variety of whole foods blended together into a convenient organic plant-based protein powder. It is vegan and gluten free and packs 15-16g of diverse plant protein.
Of course, the Kashi protein powder can be mixed with almond milk, banana and ice for simple smoothie preparation, but I love using it in baked goods as well. For these bites, I combined it with oats, apple sauce, almond milk, cacao nibs, dates and salt. They are sweet and yummy and are quick ways to fill up on protein in the morning. They pack energy and are great for on-the-go breakfasts if you’re running late.
So, if you are looking for a convenient and clean vegetarian breakfast recipe, give this one a try! Use Coupon Code TGTKASHI for $10 off one Kashi Protein Powder (GoLean or Kashi) at Target.com!
