Brought to you by Coles.

Some people don’t eat breakfast, isn’t that absurd! I love it so much that I do it twice.
Prior to breakfast I am grumpy, tired and very poor company. After breakfast I am revitalised and ready to start my day. My kids know that before I have eaten they must be quiet and tread carefully, once Mum’s plate is clean everyone can relax.
I would happily run with breakfast options for every meal of the day. There is a place for it all; warm porridge on winter mornings, smoothies on a summer’s day, and pudding’s hot or cold all year round. Muesli works well any old time and pre made muffins are perfect for frantic mornings. Apple Crumble and Banana Custard are where we turn when we are wanting something a little more decadent yet still full of goodness.
There are a few breakfast rules that must be adhered to for this meal to be a success.
– Simple
– Delicious
– Sustaining
I am hoping our recipes can take the work out of it for you and your family. Over the next week we will be having a different breakfast each day, all of which will fit into the criteria outlined above. I have been inspired by the Coles Breakfast Challenge and I would love you to tackle it with me. Jump on board! We are taking everyone from fussy two year olds to the Mum’s and Dad’s who have started their day with a cup of coffee for as long as they can remember.
It is only one week. You might enjoy it. You might end up loving breakfast as much as I do. You might end up doing it twice.

Just wondering how many people you think this would serve?

It depends on your serving size, or age of people being served and weather or not you have it with yoghurt but I would say 2 – 4.

Hi Bianca!
I don’t have any chia seeds- what do they bring to the dish, and can you think of any substitutes? I have flax seed ( golden linseed). Do you have any “spoon and bowl ” recipes? I have recently become very sensitive to noise, and can’t cope with a blender/ microwave/ kettle etc. Also, please can you tell me what coconut flour is? Is it simply dessicated coconut, whizzed up to a fine powder? I am entertaining a 3 year old for his Birthday breakfast, so would like some easy toddler friendly recipe ideas, please and pretty please! Sorry, just remembered yet another question- a lot of your recipes use medjool dates, which I can’t get. Are “ordinary” dried dates ok, with maybe a little soaking, and would I use the same amount? Sorry for such a long list of questions! many thanks, Wendy Woo. x

Hi Wendy,
Thank you. There is no need to be sorry. The chia seeds form a gel which is what gives this a porridge like texture. You can try flaxseeds and you can also make it without a blender. We have many spoon and bowl recipes, for example our date and orange muffins, apricot and ginger muffins, macaroons and lemon tart. Coconut flour is not the same as ground up desiccated coconut. You can get coconut flour at many supermarkets now and at health food stores, food co-ops and online. Medjool dates are typically in the fresh produce section of most supermarkets. If you cannot get them you can use the dates from the dried fruit section but I would advice doubling the amount used and also pre soaking them as you suggested. I hope this all helps. Bianca

Thank you Bianca. I am currently travelling 2 hours by traineach way to work. I find breakfast at 5:50am does not sustain me. I can make these up and have them in the fridge ready to go. 🙂

Perfect! I hope you enjoy them. x

I’d love to try this. Is the coconut milk like a longlife milk or like the Asian food version in a can?

Bianca Slade September 16, 2014 - 2:25 pm

The asian section can one 🙂

Hi Paula, Welcome!! I am glad you found my little space and I hope you find many recipes that you enjoy, be sure to let me know.
Yes, the puddings keep well. You can whip it up and have it over 2 – 3 days.
Enjoy. Bianca

Made this last night and had it for breakfast this morning. It was amazing! I used coconut water instead of tap water and added 1/4 cup of honey for some sweetness. Then I served it with blueberries and sunflower seeds. 🙂

I’m not bothered about being dairy free, and buying coconut milk in my part of the world (Romania) is very expensive. Will Dairy milk work instead for most of your recipes?

Can I negate the water and just use all coconut milk?

Reply
Bianca Slade April 20, 2015 - 4:04 pm

Yes you can I just find it a bit to strong for me if I use all coconut milk. x

Could i use oats & chia for this?? I find too much chia overwhelming because I don’t love the consistency! x

Sure. Sounds lovely. I hope you enjoy it. x
