I mentioned in my Soy and Sesame Salmon recipe that my sister, Amy, came to stay recently and today’s recipe is another one inspired by her. It’s not something we cooked together, or even talked about (it just popped into my imagination sometime afterwards) but I noticed how much she enjoys eggs for breakfast and it made me realise that they’re not something I have very often.

It got me thinking about making myself omelette for breakfast. They’re quick, easy and healthy so fit my usual breakfast criteria, but I found that no matter what I put into it I simply wasn’t enjoying it at breakfast time. As soon as I was finished I was scouting around the kitchen looking for something else to nibble on.

It then hit me… I like sweet things for breakfast. I don’t know why, I suspect it’s that sweet things feel more like a treat and if I’ve started the day with a treat then I start the day happy. At first I couldn’t believe that I only really ate sweet things for breakfast (the odd full English aside but that’s more like brunch), so I had a quick look through my breakfast recipe index and lo and behold in the past year I’ve not shared one savoury breakfast (there are eggs in there, but I actually always make those for lunch, it just felt like breakfast was the right place to put them when I was writing about them). Fortunately anything sweet goes for me, even fruit, so I can usually keep it pretty healthy too.

Once I’d had this realisation I knew that a savoury omelette wasn’t going to keep me happy in the morning so I set about trying to design a sweet version. I had some coconut oil in the cupboard (left over from Amy making bliss balls while she was here, another reason why she inspired the recipe as otherwise I wouldn’t have had any to use) and thought I’d stir in a tiny bit of runny honey to add some sweetness. I have never tried a sweet omelette before but it was lovely, and unlike the savoury version I didn’t feel the need to go snack hunting as soon as I was finished.

Coconut and Honey Omelette

Active Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes

Serves 1

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • ½ tsp honey

Method

  1. Crack the 2 eggs into a bowl and beat. Add the honey (½ tsp) and stir to combine.
  2. Heat the coconut oil in a small frying pan on a high heat.
  3. Once the oil has melted, add the egg mix.
  4. Once the egg has started to cook on the bottom, tilt the pan and gently scrape the sides towards the centre with a spoon or spatula, the uncooked egg on top will run out to the sides.
  5. Repeat all around the pan until the uncooked egg no longer flows to the edges.
  6. Fold the omelette in half and serve – it will look like the omelette is slightly uncooked on top just before folding, however the residual heat will cook this after folding.

  1. I’ve actually never had a sweet omelette before, it looks delicious!

    I’m not too fussy, I love both savoury and sweet breakfasts, but I do tend to gravitate more towards sweet, especially as it’s the best time for me to eat fruit. X

    • I agree about the fruit. It always seems to work well for breakfast and it’s a great feeling to start the day with something healthy.

  2. Oh yum! I love the idea of a very thin omelette. Great idea to serve it with fruit. x

    • I’d love to say that the thin omelette was intentional but it’s simply a product of the number of eggs I wanted to eat and the smallest frying pan in my kitchen – it does work well though!

  3. This looks gorgeous. I’ve never heard of a sweet omelette before, I’m intrigued! Especially with coconut and honey and fruit… yum!

    • I hadn’t heard of it before the idea popped into my head to try this. I’d like to think I invented a whole new concept but I suspect that if I googled it would pop up somewhere (I never google if I think I’ve come up with something new as I don’t want to burst my happy creative bubble 🙂 )

  4. I don’t think I’ve ever had a sweet omelette before, something I’m definitely planning on rectifying asap! I usually have fruit as part of my breakfast so this is a good way to vary it. Thanks for linking up to #cookblogshare this week.

    • A few people have said that. To be honest I had no idea if it was a real thing or if it would work before I tried it but I was really surprised at the result. I’m completely converted now.

  5. Wow another original recipe, stunning, all my favourite flavours there too! Thanks for linking up to #tastytuesdays x

    • Thanks Vicki. I wasn’t sure how well the flavours would work when I first put them together as the sweet omelette was just a random idea I had, but they worked really well. If you like coconut and honey then you really should give it a try sometime.

  6. This sounds a great way to start the morning, easy, healthy and with a little bit of sweetness. Like your other commenters I too have never had a sweet omelette before either but I shall certainly have to give it a try. #FoodYrLinkup

  8. I will be trying this tomorrow!
