Uuuugh I do love an early autumn morning. Soft sunshine, bright blue skies, a lil nip in the air. Ooo bebeh ? Must admit, it is getting harder to pull myself outta the warm duvets each day. Why does bed feel 12938x more cosy in the morning ey?
I have pushed the boat out just a smidge recently to up the cosiness in our boudoir. Fresh autumnal candles from mi love TK Maxx (so cheap, so good), cosy cushions, fairy lights and this absolute hun of a throw from Sainsbury’s Home.?
It is warm, cosy, ma fave colour and it has pom poms (ALWAYS a winner).
Also this plate of sexy breakfast goodness… ?
I’m gonna be honest, I had my heart set on whipping up Pinterest inspired cinnamon swirl pancakes… Like these babies. Buuuuut it didn’t go quite to plan so I had to improvise. Ya know what? I think I prefer this creation… Super easy to whip up as a lil mid-week treat.
Toast with a thick layer of peanut butter topped with caramelised cinnamon banana. MmmHM.
It ain’t the healthiest of breakfasts, but ya gotta treat yo’self!
Chuck a knob of butter (lol, still makes me chuckle writing that) in a non-stick frying pan on a medium-high heat.
Once melted, sprinkle in a tablespoon of brown sugar and combine.
Carefully add in your sliced ‘nana. Sprinkle over cinnamon (as much or little as you like) and fry for around 30 secs. Using a spatula (or whatever utensil ya fancy) and flip the bananas to get an even caramel coating aaall over.
Make a fresh cuppa T, toast your bread, cover in PB and top with sweet, crispy banana…
Scurry back to bed and devour!
Embracing those few hours before work makes SUCH a massive difference to my day.
It feels good to have already achieved something before I start my day, whether thats a cheeky gym sesh or decent breaky (that ain’t my reg muesli).
I am quite liking being an early bird! Wonder how long it’s gonna last ?
