That’s right, desk-fast! If you’re anything like us, mornings are rushed enough without whipping up a full breakfast spread before you leave the house. But eating breakfast at your desk doesn’t have to mean spending all your money at Pret or eating sugary bowls of cereal just because it’s convenient. Here are some of our favourite recipes that we like to bring to Neat HQ with us. They might require a little bit of extra prep, but boy are they worth it!
Vegan Protein Granola
Granola is our kryptonite, and whenever someone brings some into the office, it always disappears within minutes! This recipe is lower in refined sugars and is a great alternative to have with some Greek yogurt and fruit to get your morning started in the right way! Find the recipe, here.
Banana and Cinnamon Zoats
The combination of sweet banana and warming cinnamon will transform your breakfast into the perfect bowl of comfort. It has all the flavours of a delicious slice of banana bread with less of the indulgence, making it the perfect way to refuel your muscles after a tough workout or to get you through a long day at work. Feel a little weird about grating your corguette into your oats in the middle of the office kitchen? The answer is prepping ahead! Prep your bowl ahead of time, pop in a Tupperware and simply heat it all up when you get to work. Find the recipe, here.
Very Berry Zoats
Here’s another Zoats recipe, sure to satisfy your taste buds! Get in those micronutrients and a decent portion of protein early, to keep early to keep that rumbling stomach at bay. Find the recipe, here.
Spiced Peach and Raspberry Protein Muffins
Forever being tempted by the smell of muffins and pastries as you walk into work in the morning? Try making your own alternative using this tasty muffin recipe from Neat Ambassador, Korin Nolan – it’s an awesome way to use peaches a little differently! Find the recipe, here.
Banoffee Overnight Oats
Overnight oats are our most common breakfast on-the-go. Prep them the night before and all you have to do is grab your jar out the fridge in the morning and add any toppings. No faffing around or fighting for the microwave needed here! Try these banoffee overnight oats for a special treat or get creative with any of your favourite flavour combinations. Find the recipe, here.
Strawberries & Cream Yogurt Bowl
We've taken this great British combo and created a quick, easy, macro-friendly yogurt bowl, which works just as well at breakfast time as it does as dessert! Add your favourite nut butter, extra fruit, chopped nuts or even granola for something a little heartier. Find the recipe, here.
Buckwheat and Almond Protein Bread
As much as we love getting in the kitchen and creating exciting new meals, sometimes there is nothing better than a good old slice of toast. This gluten-free bread recipe is higher in protein and lower in carbohydrates than your usual store-bought loaf and is great to prep on a Sunday night to fuel you through a busy week. Perfect for any savoury breakfast fans, toast a couple of slices at work or eat as bread if you don’t have a toaster, and top with avocado and a boiled egg or nut butter and fruit.
