Strawberry & Banana Pecan Omelette

P1010451 copy.jpgI hope you are ready for one of the best Saturday morning breakfasts of all time! Eggs are always an amazing way to start the day and this sweet twist on a simple omelette is just too tasty!Last week I attended the Goodroots festival in London and got to not only eat plenty of delicious food but also got meet some of the big names in the blogging world and hear their stories and advice! It was such an inspirational day and is the reason behind the totally new look of the website!! I love the new look and hope you like it as much as I do! I have also been cooking NON-STOP! So look forward to plenty of new recipes starting with this amazing omelette!

This recipe was inspired by a Deliciously Ella crumble recipe. Last week I got to meet Ella Woodward (as well as Madeleine Shaw, Olivia Wollenberg, Melissa Hemsley, Sarah Wilson, Naomi Smart & many more (seriously it was an awesome day!!)) and also ate plenty of desserts from the Mae Deli Stand (again awesome day!!). They were soon good and have left me wanting more. This week I held a dinner party and decided to serve her Strawberry & Banana Crumble which was amaze, and the recipe is available on her youtube channel and second book. The strawberry and banana combination was so good and perfect at this
time of year when strawberries and bananas are EVERYWHERE! So this morning I decided I needed this flavour combination again and so this omelette was born.

P1010449.jpg‘m a big fan of a sweet omelette and decided to adapt my usual recipe slightly to incorporate my new favourite flavour combination (Seriously I can not get enough of ‘Strawnana’ right now (is a couple nickname a step too far?))  Also what isn’t made better by toasted pecans?

If you are looking for a dessert for breakfast that is still super nutritious then this is the way forward! I can not recommend this protein packed sweet breakfast treat enough (I may just have it as my Sunday morning breakfast again tomorrow!!) So go grab some delicious fresh strawberries and gorgeous ripe bananas and get cooking!

Happy Saturday (and potentially Sunday) Breakfast!!
