Oh My Nosh! Nutrition Coaching

Healthy for the whole family.

I'm just like you- in the past I struggled with maintaining a healthy weight. As I searched for the right diet plan, I became frustrated by the amount of bad science (and flat out lies) out there. Weight loss shouldn't be so confusing!

And if you want the truth, why should you have to fork over thousands of dollars for nutrition counseling? Isn't it crazy that learning to eat well (something I think is a basic human right) is out of reach for the average person?

Well no more. Welcome to the place where calorie counting comes to die. Here, you'll discover what it means to make the best possible choice and put it into action. No dieting, no sad salads- real food for your real life. Food that will have you saying...

"Good Morning" Quinoa Breakfast Cakes (Gluten-Free, Egg-Free, Dairy-Free)

I don't normally make a big fuss for breakfast on Valentine's Day (other than maybe a few jelly topped slices of heart-shaped toast). However, this year the holiday falls on a Saturday and I'm looking forward to getting up and preparing a family favorite for my husband and kiddos.

Did I mention I won't be getting up early to do it?

These quinoa breakfast cakes are cinnamon-y and are only lightly sweetened, making them the perfect base for a topping of fresh fruit and honey (or pure maple syrup if that's what you prefer). Best part is they come together so quickly AND can be frozen for a make-ahead breakfast that makes even a weekday feel like a special occasion.

These little cakes are packed with fiber and protein, with a touch of heart-healthy fat from a couple of flax eggs (I'll teach you how to make them in the recipe notes below). That means this is a healthy but not-too-heavy breakfast that provides all the nutrients necessary to keep those tummies full for a good part of the morning.

The kids love 'em too ;)

So love the ones you love this Valentine's Day- don't forget that means you too!

"Good Morning" Quinoa Breakfast Cakes

  • 2 tbsp ground flaxseeds
  • 4 1/2 tbsp water
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa (prepared in vanilla plant-based milk if preferred)
  • 2/3 cup of uncooked instant oats
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 dash cloves
  • 1/8 tsp of salt
  • Toppings of choice (honey or maple syrup to drizzle, and fresh fruit such as chopped strawberries and bananas).

To create "flax eggs," combine ground flaxseeds and water in a small dish. Place dish in the refrigerator and allow to sit for 10 minutes.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine all remaining items in a medium mixing bowl and thoroughly combine. Form approximately 8 patties from the mixture and place on the baking sheet. Make sure patties are well-packed and not crumbling at the edges.

Place in the oven and bake for approximately 9 minutes, or until patties are cooked through (should feel dense, not squishy when pressed).

To serve, drizzle with honey or maple syrup and top with fresh fruit (such as strawberries and bananas).
