Sweet Little Breakfast Soufflés
These Sweet Little Breakfast Soufflés are the perfect easy breakfast to curl up with on a sleepy Sunday morning or to make ahead for a hearty (yet sweet) way to start a busy weekday!
Here I go again....making stuff in my muffin tin. I swear, I do bake loaves and things that need to be sliced, but there is something so enticing about making a healthy recipe that is already portioned out into servings that are easily stored (and reheated) when trying to cook for a busy family.
Having quick, little-hand-sized, protein-packed breakfast items stocked in my fridge seems to help school morning run a bit smoother. Everyone in the house goes off into their day with a full, nourished belly and I don't have to worry about being too creative in the kitchen before I've finished a cup of coffee. So, yeah, I pretty much always bake something in my muffin tin during my weekly meal prep ....for everyone's sake.
I first enjoyed this recipe way back when (okay, it was only about a year ago) I met my friend Amanda. She is a fellow food blogger (with an incredible story and heart) who stumbled upon my Instagram feed and discovered that we lived in neighboring towns. After a few emails back and forth, learning we had daughters about the same age and husbands with same bizarre musical tastes, we decided to get together for brunch one weekend. Well, Amanda, in all of her cooking brilliance, made us a version of this recipe for that brunch. I instantly fell in love with it and have made it a few dozen more times since our initial meeting. I have since tweaked it here and there to make it into the recipe seen below. While the core brilliance of this recipe is not mine, Amanda generously gave me permission to share it with all of you. As it is far too wonderful and easy of a recipe for you not to have as part of your breakfast rotation.
Makes 9 mini souffles
- 1 ripe banana, peeled
- 5 eggs
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup or honey
- 1 pear, cored (peel on is okay)
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 350F and line a muffin tin (I like to use silicone liners to prevent sticking).
- In a blender, combine all of the ingredients. Blend until mixture is smooth.
- Pour the mixture evenly between 9 lined muffin tin holes.
- Bake 17-20 minutes or until the tops of the soufflé are a slight golden brown.
- Enjoy warm or store leftovers in fridge for up to 5 days.
