Eggplant Parmesan Crisps & Healthy Trail Mix - #breakfastseries

Eggplant Parmesan Crisps

This week at IHCC, we are making any Ellie Krieger recipe for appetizers or small plate dishes - nibbles and noshes - suitable for sharing. 

Ellie has a recipe called Zucchini Parmesan Crisps. But I don't feel like eating zucchini, so I replace zucchini with eggplant. They turn out pretty good! I also make her trail mix, which is so easy to put together with minimal prep time.

So here you go, the recipes for Eggplant Parmesan Crisps and Healthy Trail Mix - both are just so perfect for breakfast.

(Serves 2)

2 medium eggplants
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1/4 cup plain dry bread crumbs
1/8 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground black pepper

How to:

1. Preheat oven to 220°C. Lightly grease a baking dish.

2. Slice the eggplants into 1/4-inch thick rounds. In a medium bowl, toss eggplants with vegetable oil.

3. In a small bowl, combine Parmesan, bread crumbs, salt, and black pepper. Dip each eggplant round into the Parmesan-bread crumbs mixture, coating it evenly on both sides. Place them in a single layer on the prepared baking dish.

4. Bake the eggplant rounds until browned and crisp, about 25 to 30 minutes. Serve immediately.

Healthy Trail Mix

Recipe adapted from Ellie Krieger's High Energy Mix.

(Serves 4) 

1/2 cup dried apricots, sliced
1/2 cup dried blackcurrant 
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup dried goji berries
1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 cup almonds

1/2 cup cashew nuts

How to:

Lightly toast the nuts. Set aside to cool to room temperature. Then, combine all ingredients and mix well. Keep in an airtight container.

I'm linking this post with I Heart Cooking Clubs (IHCC) for this week's theme, Nibbles & Noshes.


  1. I love eggplant and zucchini but unfortunately my husband doesn't like either. This recipe looks so good that I'm going to have to try it anyway. If he doesn't like it, I'll just have to eat myself. I was wondering if you salt and rinse the eggplant before using?

    1. Hi Judy, thanks! And no, I didn't salt and rinse the eggplant before using.

  2. Two wonderful nibbles to enjoy! Breaded eggplant is such a satisfying and crunchy treat. The trail mix is perfect for those sweet and salty cravings I get, salty crunchy nuts and sweet chewy fruit- really satisfying!

  3. Delicious looking snacks! Both looks really yummy!

  4. Savory and cheezy crisps plus healthy trail mix. You have covered all the ground.

  5. Both recipes looks perfect for nibbling on any time of the day. I love all of the different dried fruit in the trail mix--yum!
