Sweet Cinnamon & Banana Omelette (dairy-free, gluten-free, sugar-free)

Sweet Cinnamon & Banana Omelette (dairy-free, gluten-free, sugar-free)

Sweet Omelette Obsessed

Just top it off with a bit of fruit, coconut flakes, cinnamon and nut butter

I love omelettes – you know, the savoury kind – but sometimes there is nothing quite like a sweet omelette! The basic idea of the sweet omelette (in case you are new to the concept), is that you top (or fill) your omelette with sweet foods instead of savoury foods.

In a savoury omelette, I would usually go for some sauteed mushrooms, tomato, zucchini and avocado – but when I go for a sweet omelette, I love berries or banana slices with drizzles of nut butter, cinnamon and coconut.

I love omelettes, because they are delish and they also provide great protein and healthy fats. Adding vegetables (to make a savoury omelette) or fruit (to make it sweet) will give me some healthy carbs to balance the meal.

This is one of my favorite ways to enjoy a sweet omelette! I hope you love it as much as I do!

    I made this for breakfast today (without the coconut and syrup) and it was so good!
    I never thought to put eggs and banana on the same palate.
    Very delicious!
