My Healthy Clayton’s Doughnut/Pancake

Breakfast just keeps getting yummier & healthier!

My latest concoction is sooo delicious,
And as a breakfast this has the lot!

It has:

  • Great protein (which you definitely need in the morning) from eggs and a scoop of protein powder
  • Two serves of fruit – banana and another serve if you add super nutritious blueberries
  • Probiotics with yoghurt and extra sachet of probiotic sprinkle into it
  • Sustained energy from low GI rolled oats – great for lowering cholesterol and helping with stabilised blood sugar.
  • Gluten free* Rolled oats are considered gluten free in Us but not in Australia. They officially have a type of gluten but it is rarely a problem like regular gluten
  • Heaps of fibre from oats, fruit and an extra spoonful of Fibergy


The first time I made these, I felt like something other than my usual Mary’s crackers and cheese. Cakes and bickies are pretty much out these days but sometimes I just feel like a treat with my cuppa.

I really thought they tasted like doughnuts.They are a little heavy like doughnuts and the banana gives sweetness while spices give that hot doughnut smell and taste…. yum!!!!

Did I just hear you say bull#*?  Ok my taste buds are not used to sweetness so  they may not be out of this world as delicious as a doughnut to you at this moment but I got an “not over the top – but still a thumbs up” from Connor…. give it a go and let me know!

As a Health coach I like to focus on substitution rather than deprivation and the more you train your taste buds away from sugar the more delicious so many foods become to the little darlings…. cross my heart!

Of course you still have your subconscious to deal with and that can be a struggle, but each little step will get you to where you want to be. Feel free to contact me for a free chat about your goals and struggles and how I might be able to help you.
