Breakfast Recipes of MoFos Past

LVV MoFo 2014 main

Good morning! Today we’ll visit MoFos of years past, revisiting some favorite breakfast recipes and evaluating their nutritional stats to see how they stack up. Why no new recipe on this last Wednesday of MoFo? Well, as I write this post, it’s Tuesday evening, and I did not get much sleep last night. My sister, you see, was giving birth to her second child, my second nephew. I was on the couch with my iPad and my phone by my side, trying to read and waiting for news. Happily, everything went easily and little Charlie made a smooth entrance to the world. S and I will be driving up on Friday to meet him. I can’t wait.

Today, though—recipes! Of yore!

Okay, so this Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal wasn’t technically a MoFo post. Oops. But it’s delicious and pretty darn good for you, with 8 grams of protein, 25% of your RDV of iron, 13% of your RDV of calcium, and substantial fiber. Hey-ho, hearty breakfast!

I forgot how pretty these Pumpkin-Chocolate Chip Pancakes are! And with 17% of your RDV of iron, 8% of your RDV of calcium, 5 grams of protein, and a whole lot of vitamin A in a quarter of the batch, they’re also pretty good for you!

No joke, these Apple Pie Overnight Oats are my most popular recipe on Pinterest! And they couldn’t be easier. This single-serving recipe provides 6 grams of protein, 14% of your RDV of iron, and 17% of your RDV of calcium. And it tastes like pie. So… there’s that.

And now I want breakfast.

What’s your favorite breakfast recipe?

  1. wow. I love huge enormous breakfasts with something sweetie and carby and something else savory and proteiny. But, in truth I usually just end up having a piece of bread with some PB2 on it. Alas.
