Breakfast for me has always been an issue. I want quick, easy, filling, tasty and healthy. By healthy, I mean gluten-free and sugar-free. I do have some awesome Marigold protein bars I eat on the go, but it doesn’t feel like breakfast so much.
I’m not sure how I developed this recipe and I’ve been revising it over that last few years. But it fills the bill for me on all levels. I always add plain vanilla Greek Yogurt, no sugar or sucralose added and some strawberries, peaches or blueberries. The bread itself is not sweet. I do put some liquid monkfruit in to give it a little sweet flavor.
Any sweetness comes from the strawberries. I’m discovering the natural sweetness is much better for me than processed anything, especially processed sugar or high fructose corn syrup, both of which are killers, for sure.
The great thing about this bread is you can mix it up in a microwave safe cereal bowl. In less than three minutes you have breakfast.
Almond Cinnamon Bread
1 Tablespoons Almond flour
1 tablespoon organic cinnamon
1/2 tablespoon coconut oil
1 teaspoon liquid monkfruit or stevia
1/4 cup pecan pieces
Mix well and microwave for 1 minute.
Add 1 Tablespoons of plain vanilla Greek yogurt no sugar added and the fruit of your choice.
Bread is 322 calories, 1.3 grams of sugar and 10.8 grams of protein.
The yogurt has about 20 calories, 3.75 grams of protein and 1.5 grams sugars. The strawberries have 22 calories and 3.8 sugars.
So, my breakfast then is 364 calories, over 14,5 grams of protein and 6.6 sugars.
This breakfast gives me a good start in the morning. You can double it if you have a rather robust morning and need the extra oomph!
I’d love to hear one of your healthy breakfast recipes. Share in comments.
