Coconut Flour Breakfast Bake

20120322-212230.jpg

As much as I try to buy just as much food as our family needs, there are some areas where I tend to overestimate. For example, I tend to think my family will eat more bananas than they actually do. Bananas have such a short window for ideal eating, so that doesn’t help me out. I try to buy bananas that will be perfect over the weekend. Last week I ended up with two overripe bananas that I would have baked into a banana bread before going Paleo. Since I’m doing Whole30 banana chocolate chip scramble was out. I remembered seeing a recipe on Pinterest that contained a ripe banana, but I didn’t think it would be Whole30 legal. To my delight it was, if only due to a technicality of its name. I liked it so much last week that I intentionally bought extra bananas this week!

I think I cooked 2 ramekins for 3 minutes, but I’m not sure.

Top each ramekin with 1T nut butter and a sprinkling of coconut. Tom, Jewel and I really like these, but I’m not sure how to describe the taste. It is something like a very light banana bread. But of course it’s not a bread, a muffin or a cake; hence, I can eat it on Whole30. (shut up) It tastes mildly sweet with no added sweeteners. This is a great breakfast option when you are just tired of eggs, bacon and sausage.

    Interesting…can’t decide if I’d like or not..but, since I eat most everything, I’d probably enjoy. Have you seen all the ‘new’ products on the market with coconut as the ingredient. 5 years ago, it was a no no to eat more than once a year! How things change.

      I think you would like these. They have a mild flavor. They would be good topped with fruit as well. Maybe I can make you one while you’re here.

    Jen, what I love about this series of food/family posts is what clarity that your photos bring to the discussion. No guessing about procedure or how it should look at all. I like that.
