What's for breakfast on GAPS? *UPDATE

Since we've eliminated grains from our diet we've struggled with what to eat for breakfast.  Here are some of our family's favorites

Applemeal (just as filling as oatmeal)
1C apple sauce
1/4 c almond meal
1 T butter
vanilla and cinnamon to taste.

Heat and enjoy!  it ends up tasting like pie filling and is more filling than just eating apple sauce.

Soda biscuit
2 3/4 C almond flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 C dried fruit (optional - we don't add this)
2 eggs
2T apple cider vinegar
2T honey or more - to taste

Mix dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately (this is important!).  Add them all together in a mixer until combined.  Shape into biscuits and bake 20-30 min at 350 degrees.  If biscuits are too dry, add more honey.

Oven Pancake
1/2 C butter ***** UPDATE this is too much butter!  try 1/4 C butter******
6 eggs
1 C yogurt or kefir or sour cream or cultured milk product of choice
1/4 C coconut flour
1/4 tsp. salt
vanilla or almond flavor (optional)
1 C fresh fruit (optional)

Pre-heat oven to 425 and while it is warming, place the stick of butter in your 9x13 pan.  Combine all other ingredients in a blender and dump in your pan (make sure all the butter is melted first.  Bake 25-30 min and serve with honey, maple syrup, fruit ,  or whatever else you may have on hand!

Other easy things that we eat are smoothies, apple slices and peanut butter, eggs, and pumpkin pie.

Almond meal can be found at Trader Joes, Smart and Final and natural food stores.  Coconut four can be found the in the health food aisle of some grocery stores and most natural food stores as well.  I buy mine at El Rancho Grande

I have tried those soda biscuits...they're delicious!

I will have to try these, although I might use oat bran flour.

Sherri, the coconut flour absorbs liquid and almond flour has a high fat content so I wouldn't recommend substituting anything for either - it would upset the proportions that make the recipe work. Sorry!
