Healthy Baked Breakfast Hash-browns

I have a few key memories from my childhood: Splashing around in the backyard pool with my brother, cuddling with my dog for hours on end, and grabbing hash browns from our local McDonald’s with my Dad every single weekend. Gosh…just smelling hash browns takes me back in time.

Nowadays, McDonald’s isn’t on the menu anymore, but I still do love some good ol’ hash browns. These here are a healthy version of the McD’s famous hash browns and I do hope you like them. They are oil free, so they will not have that greasy (albeit yummy) texture/taste, but they still fill me with lots of warmth, tastiness, and my arteries are thankful for the homemade version! Give it a try and let me know how you like it!

Keyword: beginner friendly
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Total Time: 50 minutes
Servings: 4
Calories: 100kcal

Ingredients

  • 1 lb potatoes (yukon, idaho, russet) peeled and grated
  • 1 onion diced
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp paprika powder
  • Pinch sea salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F/175C.
  • Scrub the potatoes. If you wish, peel them before grating. Grate the potatoes directly into a large bowl lined with a kitchen towel.
  • Allow the grated potato to sit in the kitchen towel for 10 minutes. Come back and squeeze out all of the excess juice out.
  • Pour the potatoes back into the bowl. There should be starch sticking to the kitchen towel from squeezing - be sure to scrape that back into the potatoes. This will help the potatoes to stick!
  • Add the seasonings and gently toss together.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and loosely scoop out the mixture with a spoon or using your fingers. You do not want to flatten or squish the potatoes. Lay them gently onto the baking sheet and lightly form with your fingers or a utensil. Keeping the potatoes loose will help them to cook much better - but be sure to form the mixture into a circle or oval to avoid burning edges.
  • Bake for 20 minutes. Fip over and bake for an additional 15-20. Enjoy!

Notes

**I love to serve these with ketchup, hummus, avocado, or even grilled veggies
***If there is no starch in the kitchen towel, you could opt to add in 1 tbsp of corn starch or flour to the mixture.

Compostable & Unbleached Parchment Paper

  • The parchment paper by “If You Care” is unbleached, chlorine free, and compostable. I have used this up to the highest oven setting without any issues! Paper, in it’s natural state is beige or light brown. For years people have subjected it to a bleaching process to create the white sheets we all know and love. Unfortunately, cleaning the paper is having the opposite effect on the environment. The most common bleaching agent – chlorine dioxide (ClO2) – occurs naturally as a component of salt, but once it separates from it’s natural pair it begins to cause problems. The paper bleaching process deposits chlorine in the lakes and streams where mills are most commonly located, and once there it bonds with organic matter in the form of dioxins. Dioxins are a group of highly toxic chemicals that are thought to pose negative effects on reproductive and immune system development, as well as cause several kinds of cancers. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, there is no safe level of dioxin exposure.

In search of a High Speed Blender to make all your pancake/smoothie/dessert dreams come true? Here are our top 3 picks:

Our Current Blender: The Vitamix Explorian Blender
  • It took me 3 years to choose this blender haha. I’m not even joking. I was so afraid of the price. So, instead, I purchased two other blenders in those 3 years that, low and behold, BROKE. The plant based lifestyle will wreak havoc on most blenders so you must choose a high quality one with a WARRANTY. The Explorian is one of the most inexpensive vitamix options but it still works great. I use it multiple times a day, every single day, and all of the recipes are from this beauty! Check out deals around Black Friday – you can usually snag one of these for under 200USD. For my European followers: Get ready to pay MORE than North America. I’m not sure why, but vitamix in Europe is double the price (which is actually more than double because we pay in euros/pounds/etc).

Vitamix Blender
 

Blendtec Classic Fit Blender
  • I have never owned a Blendtec, but I did live with someone who had one and it was pretty amazing. Never understood why it didn’t come with a tamper (?) but it does work beautifully. I am pretty biased with my years of experience with the vitamix over the Blendtec, but the price point is fantastic and there are TONS of videos out there comparing the two.

Nutri Ninja
  • I had a Ninja blender for years and years before I found the plant based lifestyle (or it found me). Prior to going plant based, I loved to make smoothies on a daily basis (still do today!). However, my smoothies were much *kinder* to the blender than today. While having owned both, I could just (and never would) compare a Ninja to a Vitamix – the difference is staggering. However, if you are just looking to blend up some oats, make light smoothies, or create epic dressings? Then go ahead and choose this one!

Cuisine: American
Keyword: beginner friendly, Budget Friendly, kid approved
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
Servings: 4
Calories: 273kcal

Ingredients

  • 1.5 cups Non-Dairy Milk I used organic vanilla soy milk
  • 2 cups Rolled Oats
  • 1 banana ripe
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter Any nut/seed butter will do. Well stirred.
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch sea salt

Options

Instructions

  • Prep and heat your skillet to medium-high heat.
  • Add the rolled oats to the blender and blend until a flour is formed. Add in the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth. If needed, add a splash more of the non-dairy milk.
  • Test your skillet. Place a drop of water in the skillet. If it sizzles, you are ready to make some pancakes! Bring the heat slightly down (Still above medium but not so high).
  • Pour 1/4-1/2 cup of the mixture into the skillet. If using chocolate chips, add those now - just sprinkle them over. After 3 minutes (you will start to see some bubbles), flip and heat on the other side for 2 extra minutes. Repeat.
  • Serve with maple syrup, sliced banana, and crushed nuts if you wish. Enjoy!

Notes

*Please be cautious of the temperature and time for the pancakes. Some skillets heat quicker than others, and some require different temperatures for the perfect pancakes. Lower the heat if needed.
**Any nut/seed butter will do.
***No additional sugar is added to the pancake recipe for personal preference. If you wish to add maple syrup or brown sugar, I would opt for 1/4 cup.

Bananas
