When life gets crazy, it can be convenient to make or grab whatever is easiest and be on your way. A lot of the time, that means some not-so-healthy meal choices packed with unrecognizable ingredients and lots of added sugar. This is why I’m such a huge fan of one-pan meals. Everything goes in the same pan, is cooked at the same time, and there’s minimal clean up. It doesn’t get much easier than that! Another great thing about them is that they can feed the entire family, or if you’re cooking for one, they’re a great way to meal prep for the week.

One of the prime times that a one-pan meal comes in handy for me is at breakfast. You don’t have to wake up an extra hour early every day to cook and can instead just pop your prepped breakfast in the microwave (or eat it cold) and go. That’s why I love these mixed berry baked oats. They require minimal ingredients, most of which you probably already have on hand. And they’re packed with greens from Earth Genius Mixed Berry Smart Greens.

GNC’s Earth Genius line has been a go-to in my home since the line launched last year. Earth Genius is a comprehensive, wholesome line of products that are inspired by nature and crafted by experts. All products in the line are non-GMO, gluten free and made with wholesome ingredients that contain no artificial colors, flavors and sweeteners. Each product is specifically crafted to provide a solution to a real life health concern. They’re super easy to incorporate into your everyday life. I love to add them into delicious recipes like this one, or they’re great just mixed into water, yogurt or your favorite smoothie!

The product I use in this recipe, the Mixed Berry Smart Greens, is a blend of organic greens, veggies, superfruits, antioxidants, digestive enzymes, organic adaptogenic mushrooms, organic sea greens, and prebiotic Inulin. It tastes absolutely delicious, and I guarantee that nobody will guess your sneaking greens into these oats. They’re sure to beat any store bought insta-oats you find on the shelf.

When it comes to healthy eating, I’ve gotten a lot of feedback about it being intimidating. People don’t know where to start, or it’s too time consuming to eat healthy. I get it. Fast food is quick. Eating pre-made frozen meals is convenient. But eating healthy, nutritious meals can be just as easy and convenient!

This is one of the many reasons I’ve come to love GNC’s Earth Genius line. Earth Genius is a comprehensive, wholesome line of products that are inspired by nature and crafted by experts. All products in the line are non-GMO, gluten free and made with wholesome ingredients that contain no artificial colors, flavors and sweeteners. Each product is specifically crafted to provide a solution to a variety of concerns. Through the month of March, you can use this link http://bit.ly/2SJJvaF or head into your local GNC to BOGO 50% off all Earth Genius products, making it the perfect time to try different products in the line.

One of my personal favorite Earth Genius products is their Superfoods Supreme which comes in two flavors, Vanilla Chai and Mixed Berry. It contains 35 superfood ingredients, pea protein and prebiotic and enzyme support. With a wholesome blend of real fruits, veggies, greens and sprouts, it’s an easy way to add nutrition to your daily diet. It’s delicious on its own mixed into water and also a great base for some delicious recipes.

I decided to whip up a super easy, nutritious pancake recipe with the Vanilla Chai flavor. It includes just two other ingredients besides the Superfoods Supreme and takes under 15 minutes to make. Who needs frozen pancakes with ingredients you’ve never heard of when you can have a superfood-packed, nutritious and delicious vanilla chai stack?

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • 1 scoop Earth Genius Vanilla Chai Superfoods Supreme

  • 1 ripe banana

  • 2 eggs

Instructions:

  1. Mash the banana using a fork or hand mixer.

  2. Add in two whisked eggs and 1 scoop Earth Genius Vanilla Chai Superfoods Supreme, and mix until well combined.

  3. Ladle pancake-sized pours of the mixture onto a preheated, greased pan over medium high heat on the stove top.

  4. Cook for 3-4 minutes until the bottom is cooked, flip and cook an additional 3-4 mins.

  5. Repeat until all the batter is used.

  6. Top your pancakes with your favorite toppings (I suggest nuts, fresh fruit, nut butter and/or maple syrup), and enjoy!
