Healthy snacks and recipes are sometimes hard to find, however with the internet and Pinterest the search is easy. I have gathered the top 9 healthy recipes for you from our site to help you find some recipes with great health benefits and to help with weight loss. 9 Top Recipes of Healthy things to eat with coffee.
The best way to help with weight loss is keep blood sugar levels down. And, to help with this I have chosen sugar free and low carbohydrate recipes. Plus, some of these recipes have healthy fats and dark chocolate in their ingredients. And, who doesn’t LOVE a sweet treat with a morning cup of joe??? 🙂
Let’s begin with the most important meal of the day, which is breakfast. I have chosen recipes with a variety of breakfast foods; healthy snack options, savory breakfasts, plus, some recipes with a sweet treat. And, of course, we know what the most important part of breakfast is, especially for coffee lovers, and that is – a hot cup of coffee or CUPS of coffee or for some an iced coffee, LOL.
A great way to start a beautiful morning is with the first thing, your morning coffee and healthy alternatives recipes. So, the first one that I have chosen is the classic french toast breakfast. Except, I have made a recipe that is sugar free, low carb and with fewer calories than a regular french toast.
This keto french toast casserole is an easy 1 dish casserole. It is made with low carb or keto bread, brown sugar substitute called Swerve, almond milk, eggs, pecans, butter and cinnamon. This casserole is delicious without any toppings, but you can drizzle some sugar free pancake syrup or maple syrup on top. Also, you can add some sides like fresh fruit or greek yogurt.
But, the best part of this recipe is that it is EASY. You add ALL the ingredients to a baking dish and bake. You can not get much easier that that!
A lot of famous coffee shops sell “egg bites” and these bacon & spinach egg muffins are just as delicious as those famous ones. Eggs are always a good idea to increase your grams of protein for any time of day. This recipe does call for bacon, but if you want a lean protein then you can exchange the bacon for turkey bacon.
Don’t let the name keto keep you from trying these delicious egg muffins. The name keto just means that there is no sugar or gluten in this muffins. But, these are filled with eggs, cheese, bell peppers, onions and sausage.
Now, that we have discussed breakfast recipes, maybe our taste buds need a delicious treat, for example: a chocolate cake, but I have a chocolate cake that is sugar free and gluten free. Plus, the perfect way to eat chocolate cake with coffee, is to add ice cream! Yummy!!
One of the best things in life is chocolate! This cake will definitely satisfy your sweet tooth, and the good news is that it’s a perfect match with black coffee or a dark roast coffee.
I had to add this recipe to healthy things to eat with coffee, everyone needs chocolate cake and coffee!
Oh my, Pumpkin!! Can you imagine an afternoon coffee with a piece of pumpkin pecan cobbler???? My cobbler might be better than a piece of coffee cake! Plus, you know that an afternoon snack needs a higher dose mg of caffeine, with some extra coffee, LOL!
And you know that we can’t have our favorite coffee beans without some PIE. But, pie can be a healthy, because this pie is sugar free.
Remember, don’t let the title of keto confuse you or turn you away. This just means that these muffins have sugar free salted caramel chocolate chips and a sugar free sweetener in the muffin batter. Plus, instead of white flour these muffins are made with almond flour which is a healthy alternative to white flour.
These chocolate chips are also made with sugar free chocolate chips and almond flour instead of white flour. Both are healthier alternatives.
The bottom line is to find healthy things to eat with coffee that not only fill an empty stomach, but that are healthy, raise energy levels and help reduce weight gain. Sometimes, the healthier snack ideas could be something simple like Nutella tarts, peanut butter, cottage cheese, cheese sandwich or a cheese omelet.
So, the next time that you reach for hot beverages or your favorite drink of a caffeine fix, try to pair it with something healthier than just empty calories.
I have also listed some dinner and dessert ideas. A couple of them are recipes for baked chicken instead of frying the chicken in oil. So, we know that baking foods in the oven is always healthier than frying them in vegetable oil.
Some of these recipes are for battered chicken and we have chosen to make 2 different types batters. The chicken is either battered in crushed corn flakes or crushed pretzels, then the chicken strips or popcorn chicken is baked until crispy in the oven. YUMMY!
