Grain free breakfast

You are probably aware that slices of toast, croissants or Danish pastry aren’t the best options for a healthy breakfast. However this does not mean that a good, filling and healthy breakfast has to be boring!

The following recipe is one of the most loved recipes on my blog – and the most common breakfast in our house. We call it chocolate pancake omelet.

Inviting – and healthy – breakfast

For one serving you’ll need:

  • 1 small banana
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tbsp. cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp. coconut flour (or potato flour if you don’t have coconut flour)
  • a pinch of salt

Mash the banana and whisk everything. A quick version is to blend using a hand held blender – then you don’t even have to mash the banana first.

Fry in a bit of coconut oil or other fat in a pan for 3-4 minutes until more or less solid. Flip around and fry the other side for another minute or two.

Serve with fresh fruit and possibly a spoon of natural yogurt or a bit of nut butter.

If you are feeding a family, like I do, triple the ingredients (four servings):

  • 3 small bananas
  • 9 eggs
  • 3 tbsp. cacao powder
  • 3 tbsp. coconut flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Use a cast iron skillet or other ovenproof pan. Heat up with a bit of coconut oil, add the chocolate pancake batch and fry on the stove for 3-4 minutes. If you feel a bit adventurous sprinkle some nuts over the chocolate pancake omelet. Then transfer to a warm oven (180 C / 360 F) and finish baking there for 20 minutes.

And here a few inspiring pictures on how to serve the chocolate pancake omelet:
