Today I am sharing my favorite healthy breakfast recipes that use Ezekiel bread. Many people skip breakfast because of time constraints, or they are just not hungry in the morning. Like many of you, my mornings are hectic and involve lots of multi-tasking. I need a breakfast that can consume while curling my hair, well balanced, quick and easy. This is was the inspiration for these various Ezekiel recipes.
For those of your unfamiliar with Ezekiel it is a bread make from sprouted grain, meaning it contains no flour. This is a great option for me because I love carbohydrates, but bread containing enriched flour makes me bloat. You can find Ezekiel in the freezer aisle of most grocery stores. I would recommend only defrosting a few pieces at a time as it molds quickly.
I hope you enjoy these recipes!
