Weekend breakfast

Sometimes I wake up in the mood for a fancy breakfast then pause when I realize I’m the only one capable of making it. Sigh…

So I close my eyes, deliberate the ‘actual’ importance of breakfast at that particular hour, daydream of having a Butler, then succumb to the 159 requests to be fed by my annoying wonderful 5 year old!

Truth be told, my breakfast wasn’t lofty. Just eggs n toast; coffee for me and chocolate milk for the kid. It would be nice to have someone else cater to my desires for once but hey, that’s another story a.k.a fairytale.

Later on that day I tossed together a little gem I hadn’t made in a while. My 5 yr old hates it so it was mine ALL mine! I call it ‘banana surprise’ but perhaps you call it by a different name.

– 1 banana
– 1 or 2 tablespoons Peanut Butter
– 1 large whole wheat tortilla (or 2 medium)
– chocolate syrup or Nutella or honey

1. Place tortilla(s) on a dish
2. Spread peanut butter all over the tortilla (spread Nutella also if no chocolate syrup or honey)
3. Peel and slice banana
4. Place banana slices on tortilla(s)
5. Drizzle chocolate syrup or honey over banana slices
6. Fold tortilla(s)
7. Drizzle more chocolate syrup (or honey) outside.
8. Enjoy warm, room temperature or chilled for a few minutes.

This is also fun with pancakes. ☺

The following images are different variations of the recipe above. I didn’t think to take pictures of mine so enjoy some I found on Google.






So what did you have for breakfast over the weekend?

What do you consider a lofty breakfast?

What other fun foods did you eat?

Have you ever tried any version of my ‘Banana Surprise’?

Thanks for stopping by. Happy January!

  1. I, too, dream of a day when breakfast will be prepared and served to me. But alas, that falls under the category of “fairy tale”. But today, with it being 4 degrees outside, I am going into the kitchen to make a simple but hot breakfast of bacon, eggs, lemon poppyseed muffins and cinnamon rolls — just so I can be warmer than everyone else!! Have a great day!

  3. Um…I never eat breakfast. I don’t eat lunch either. Sometimes, I will have a snack for dinner.
    My idea of a “lofty breakfast?” Probably this thing I discovered when I was trapped by the hurricane in Florida….a huge (and I mean plate-covering huge) pancake, with something called lemon….lemon….hell, I don’t know. A few strawberries sprinkled over it and soaked in maple syrup! It was scrumptious! I ate the center of the pancake and everybody laughed at me but I would almost drive all the way back down there for another one. (kidding.)
    As far as trying your “banana surprise,” no…but I have been known to slice a banana in half and slather peanut butter all over it. How’s that? 🙂

    1. Yogurt is a nice addition. But I haven’t been able to enjoy it in a while as I have the ‘delightful’ task of finding Dairy free yogurt that tastes good and is not ridiculously expensive. Yay! ☺

      Thanks for your yummy contribution.
