I love breakfast foods, but the typical high carbohydrate, high sugar weekend breakfast will leave me feeling bloated and exhausted in a few hours. Check out what I cooked for my family this morning – so much more nutritious and filling than the standard weekend breakfast options. We are lucky here in Portland, Oregon to have a local market, New Seasons, that has fantastic bulk turkey sausage that does not contain sugars.
Breakfast this morning: almond flour pancakes, blueberry compote, turkey sage sausage, and paleo mochas – delish!
Almond flour pancakes – makes 8 small pancakes
1 cup almond meal/flour
2 eggs, whisked
1/4 cup seltzer
2 Tbsp oil
1/4 tsp sea salt
8 drops liquid stevia
mix all ingredients together in a bowl and cook on griddle on medium heat using butter or coconut oil. Flip once they are browned on the bottom. Serve warm with blueberry compote.
Blueberry compote – serves 4
Put a cup of frozen blueberries in a microwave-safe dish. Microwave on high for 1 minute, stir, and microwave for 1 more minute.
Paleo mocha – serves 2
1 cup coffee or 1 Americano
1 cup water
8-16 drops liquid stevia
1-2 Tbsp cocoa powder, unsweetened
coconut milk, to taste
Mix all ingredients in a saucepan, heat and whisk until blended and warm. Adjust cocoa powder and coconut milk to taste, add more stevia to make it sweeter.
