Banana & Peanut Butter... Omelet?!

Yep, you read that title 100% correctly. Banana and peanut butter omelet.
If you have never tried a sweet omelet... You, my friend, are missing out! But, have you ever at least seen a sweet omelet, wanted to attempt it, but didn't know how to go about it without it tasting like something you threw out last week?
Well, never fear! I have the recipe for you banana and peanut (/any type of nut) butter and egg lovers! 

Banana & Peanut/Nut Butter Omelet

1 whole egg
2 egg whites
splash of almond/soy/etc. milk
lots of cinnamon! (I also added a dash of cinnamon roll protein powder!)
1 sweetener packet

1 baby banana, mashed (or 1/2 medium/large banana, mashed)
1/2-1 tbsp peanut or other nut butter (I highly recommend using Biscoff cookie spread... AH-MAY-ZING!)


Combine all ingredients in a bowl.
Stir thoroughly to make sure everything is combined.
Preheat a pan or skillet. (Make SURE to spray/oil it to make sure your omelet doesn't stick!!)
Pour in your omelet mixture.
Let it cook on the one side. Every once in a while, lift it up to let any excess liquid get to the edges so it all cooks.
Once it's steady and cooked enough on the bottom, carefully flip it!
{Make sure it's cooked from the inside out before you take it out of the pan/skillet! Slightly press down on it to figure out when it's done!}
When done, take it out of the pan, top it with your favorite toppings, and add in some extra banana and peanut butter slices to the middle if desired! Maybe even some granola and almonds? Or some strawberries or apple slices or blueberries... Ah, so. many. options!
I topped my omelet with melted Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter and a few slivered almonds! And I placed it on top of some plain Greek yogurt.

Bon appetite! This is one protein (and other nutrient)-packed and perfect breakfast all around. Enjoy!!
