Cool mornings call for a belly-warming breakfast, and this Banana Coconut Breakfast Scramble hits the spot. It’s super easy and quick to make. Just 4 ingredients, no mixing bowls required! Coconut milk and a whole egg come together as a sustaining, complete protein base. The natural sweetness from the banana is gratifying and wholesome. Shredded coconut gives it texture and rounds out the healthy fat. Whip this up tomorrow morning, it’s so simple and good.

I invented this about a month ago, and I can’t tell you how often we’ve made it since then. I was hungry, and I was looking for the easiest path. I didn’t want to wash up mixing bowls or weigh finickety ingredients. I didn’t want anything as time consuming as pancakes. But I wanted something warm and sustaining – comfort food for a chilly morning.
I cracked an egg into a small saucepan, and then added coconut milk, shredded coconut, and half a banana. I gently stirred it over a low heat for a few minutes, breaking up the yolk and amalgamating it all into a creamy consistency. As soon as it began to lift away from the base of the pan and resemble classic scambled eggs, I tipped it into a bowl. Walà! Banana Coconut Breakfast Scramble! It was delightful, and now we’re making it two or three times a week.
We usually add a few currants, though they’re not essential. We’ve tried it with pear, but the juice tends to make it a bit runny. The quantities here are good as a late, light breakfast for one, or for a snack. If we’re making it for the both of us, we sometimes add an extra egg. Fiorenzo likes to add a few of those chunky coconut chips. I prefer the smoother option.
We haven’t tried it with smashed up 85% dark chocolate, but I suppose we could.
