It's no secret, I love prunes. From the Miso Prune Blondies with Chocolate Drizzle to the Soft and Buttery Prune Starbread, prunes are such a beautiful fruit to cook with. Prunes are so often overlooked but are packed with so much flavor and health benefits. They're full of fiber, are high in potassium, aid in digestion, and even help lower cholesterol.

So, when I caramelized Banana and Prunes together and got such a delicious result, I knew that it would be the perfect way to start the day in a breakfast bowl!

The recipe and blog post for Caramelized Banana and Prune Breakfast Bowl was made in partnership with California Prunes! I received compensation and product in exchange for this work. My opinions on their prunes are genuine. If I didn't love their prunes, I would certainly mention it! Thanks for your continued support!

This breakfast bowl comes together quickly and easily! The recipe calls for about 1 cup of California Prunes, 1 banana, a cup of whole rolled oats (cooked), a little coconut milk, and any toppings that you like. I used trail mix, nut butter, and Coconut Cardamom Nut Butter, and a tablespoon of hemp seeds! Everything comes together so perfectly, it's truly a delicious and nutritious way to start you day.

a quick and easy breakfast

This breakfast is excellent if you're on the run in the morning and need something quick. It only takes a few minutes to caramelize the bananas and prunes. Simply slice up the bananas and coat in 1 tablespoon of brown sugar. Throw them into a pan with a little coconut oil with the prunes and let them caramelize until bananas are browned on both sides.

Place on top of a bed of oatmeal and any toppings, or eat by itself. You can't go wrong!

are breakfast bowls healthy?

Not only are breakfast bowls easy and delicious, they're super healthy. Of course, it all depends on what you put in the breakfast bowl. However, if you're using wholesome ingredients like fruits and whole grains, breakfast bowls are an excellent way to start the day.

More specifically, eating prunes in the morning are a great way to start the way. They have so many health benefits. They're:

  • always in season
  • full of vitamins and nutrients that support bone health
  • have a low glycemic index
  • aid in digestion because they're full of fiber
  • full of antioxidants
