Breakfast

We love eggs! Plus other delicious options.

Peanut Butter Banana Muffins

These Peanut Butter Banana Muffins (no dairy or wheat) are perfect for a breakfast on the go, pre-run snack, or post-workout recovery. Actually, they’re great as an anytime snack, and since they’re low in sugar, there’s no justification needed to enjoy!  

 

Peanut Butter Oven Pancake

My younger son wanted pancakes for breakfast on his birthday, but I wanted to spend the morning relaxing with him, not flipping pancakes. I made him this oven pancake instead, and let him pour the chocolate-chips into the batter. With a pie-slice serving for each of us and sliced strawberries, […]

 

Summer Squash Bread

This is an easy grain-free sweet bread, made with bright yellow summer squash (aka zucchini) and flavored with pumpkin butter and toasted walnuts. The original recipe from the Food Network called for unsweetened apple butter, but we had some Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Butter on hand, so we used that instead. […]

 

Paleo Chive Biscuits (Dairy-Free)

Coconut Banana Breakfast Cookies

I was inspired to make these wheat-/gluten-free cookies from the same cookbook I’ve referenced a lot lately – “Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow.” That version uses eggs and honey; mine are dairy and sugar free, made with unsweetened applesauce. My husband and I enjoyed them fresh from the oven, […]

 

Vanilla Avocado Pudding

We were stoked to receive 15 Bacon avocados in our farm basket last week. Bacon avocados are lighter in color and flavor than Hass avocados, and they have a higher water content. We like them for sweet recipes as they have less of a traditional “avocado” flavor but the same […]

 

Paleo Banana Bread

With only 8 ingredients, this recipe delivers a naturally sweetened bread without grains, dairy, or sugar. Mix up the batter in less than 5 minutes, then sit back and wait for about an hour while it bakes in the oven (and fills your kitchen with the amazing aroma of cinnamon […]
