Omletteenies = mini omelettes, geddit?
I saw this recipe on the Blogilates website at the weekend, and they looked so good I just had to make them on Monday. They’re going to form my breakfasts for the rest of the week.
So easy and delicious!!
I adapted the recipe from the Blogilates recipe a little using the ingredients I had around, and also reducing the amount so I made 12 instead of 24.
Omletteenies (adapted from Blogilates)
- 1 whole egg plus 1 and 1/4 cup egg whites (equivalent to 10 egg whites)
- a handful of finely chopped up cherry tomatoes, avocado, baby spinach leaves, and a spring onion stalk
Preheat the oven to 200˚C. Line a bun tin with fairy cake cases. Whisk the egg and egg whites together. Pour a little egg just to cover the base of each case. Mix the veggies together, and put a spoonful into each case on top of the egg. Pour the rest of the egg on top of the veggies in each case, and pop into the oven until they are cooked through.
As a change from my usual breakfast toast, I decided to make the Blogilates banana pancakes.
Attempt 1? Catastrophe. I think it was from using just egg whites and whisking in too much air, but my pancakes resolutely refused to flip and things got messy. They still tasted yummy though. But I wanted to have another go to get them just right.
On my second try I used one whole egg and one egg white, and beat the mixture together with a fork the bare minimum it took for them to combine.
Result? Perfection. They’re soft and fluffy, and taste great with only two ingredients!

Serves 1 (makes a small stack of 5)
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 whole egg and 1 egg white (or 2 whole eggs if you’re following the Blogilates recipe)
- Spray oil
Mash the banana with a fork. Gently mix in the egg until combined. Put the batter into a jug. Heat up 2 non-stick frying pans on a medium heat, and spray with oil so the pancakes won’t stick. Pour a little batter into each pan to form your pancakes. Flip over gently once the top is no longer gooey.
