Back with more 3 ingredient recipes, we’re here to prove that the simplest of recipes can sometimes be the tastiest. At a time when we’re all probably spending more money than we ever have at supermarkets, we hope these recipes will show you that you can keep the weekly food shop bill down whilst wowing the taste buds like you never have before too.
Starting off with a weekend morning vibe of a breakfast, these healthy pancakes is sure to kick start the day in the right way. With only banana, egg and honey to serve, stack them up to make sure it’s filling enough and let the flavour take over.
- 1 banana mashed
- 1 eggs
- 2 tbsp honey to serve
- In a bowl, mash the banana with a fork.Add eggs and mix until combined (you can add cinnamon if you desire).
- Heat a nonstick pan over medium heat. Add a spoonful of batter and cook for 3-4 minutes, then flip and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes.
- Serve with honey and extra slices of banana.
We’ve slightly cheated here given the amount of salad and vegetables in the photo, but truth be told, it would probably have looked a lot nicer if we kept it to the recipe. Whilst salmon definitely isn’t the cheapest ingredient to buy, next to no more expense is needed by finishing it off with a sweet chilli sauce and green onions. As you can see, bulk it up for a more filling lunchtime meal if you like!
Sweet Chilli Salmon
- 2 salmon fillets
- 100 g sweet-chilli sauce
- 3 spring onions chopped
- Preheat oven to 200˚C. Meanwhile, in a bowl, mix together the salmon, sweet-chilli sauce, and spring onions.
- Place the fillets on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Spoon any leftover sauce on top of the salmon.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the salmon is cooked and tender.
- We served with salad and fresh veg, but you can add what you wish or eat alone if you desire.
Back to breakfast, and have you ever been eating the same mundane cereal wondering if there’s a way of taking it to the next level? We wholeheartedly recommend ditching the ordinary bowl of cheerios, melting a bar of white chocolate and drivingly over some honey to create these incredibly tasty bars. Maybe make it the night before so you’re not tempted to take them out of the fridge before they’ve properly set though!
Honey Chocolate Cereal Bars
- 1 cup honey
- 100 g white chocolate
- 3 cups Cheerios
- Put your honey and Cheerios in a large bowl. Stir until combined.
- Line an 8x8 inch pan with parchment paper and press mixture firmly to form its shape.
- Melt your chosen chocolate to drizzle of spread across the top before placing in the fridge for an hour to fully set.
- Cut into desired shape and enjoy!
