There’s nothing that says “I love you” quite like homemade breakfast in bed, especially when it’s in the shape of a heart. Here are our top 5 favorite heart-healthy (literally) breakfasts for Valentine's day:
1. Heart-Shaped Sunny Side Up Toast
For the Valentine's Day version of "egg in a hole", use a ~3 inch cookie cutter, and cut out a heart into the center of a piece of whole grain bread (save the hearts for the next recipe!). Lightly toast both sides of the bread. Next, place the empty heart toast in the center of a pan and carefully crack an egg into the empty heart. Place the lid on the pan and cook for about 3-4 minutes until egg is fried. Pair with some berries to add more color to the plate!
2. Love Toasts
Using a few slices of multigrain toast and your heart shaped cookie cutter, cut out a few hearts. Now get creative! You can go the traditional avocado-toast route with chili flakes, or try spreading peanut butter and bananas. If you’re feeling fancy, try a layer of ricotta cheese and sprinkle with pistachio nuts and honey.
3. Flourless Love Stack
Use your heart shaped cookie cutter on the griddle! Using our flourless banana pancake recipe, simply pour the batter into the cookie cutter to maintain the shape of the heart.
4. Egg Love You
Crack 2 eggs into bowl and whisk. Pour into heart-shaped skillet (we promise you will use this again). Add veggies of choice and allow to cook through on low heat.
5. Heart Smoothie Bowl
Turn a standard strawberry-banana smoothie into a V-day treat. Add 1 frozen banana, 5 large strawberries, 1/2 cup almond milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and a pinch of cinnamon into blender. Blend until all ingredients are evenly distributed with that nice pink color. Pour into bowl and use topping of choice to form a heart! Some topping ideas include: goji berries, coconut flakes, hemp seeds, chia seeds.
