if you haven’t been able to tell by now i love a breakfast bowl & i love a sweet one. i only post my SP one every few days 🙂 i’ve recently found a paleo yogurt – it has a cashewmilk base, no added sugars, plus probiotics. i used it as the base for my yogurt parfait that is now making a COMEBACK!!

since i’ve found this new yogurt that i am obsessed with [it’s dairy free – cashew milk based – no added sugars, & packed with probiotics. what more could you ask for when you just really miss parfaits but still want to eat real food with clean ingredients] … GRANOLA!!! except that one major thing with granola is that usually the base is oats which are a grain; which is not something involved in eating paleo. UNTIL now. my new coconut maple almond granola is GRAIN FREE + you might not even guess it! it’s crunchy, nutty, clustery, & slightly sweet. you see it, you like it, you want it? YOU GOT IT.
OKAY. it’s here!! this will be the first bread recipe that i’ve tested & successfully created for my blog! i’ve been wanting to make something like a banana bread, but without the bananas; which would make it just bread. but i didn’t want to make just bread! [shouts to @aeengels12 for the inspiration for a sweet potato based bread – this one’s for yaaa.] i wanted the flavor to be neutral in terms of not having fruit or cinnamon or any nut butter, & the reason for that was because i wanted to be able to put whatever toppings on it without clashing or overpowering any flavs!
one of the main reasons i wanted it to be neutral was becuase i recently discovered a new type of jam [just fruit preserves, no sugar] & immediately knew i needed a base for a THROWBACK CONCEPT. i used to eat this legitimately every single day for lunch in high school….can you guess? PEANUT BUTTER & JELLY, ANYONE? except that peanut butter isn’t paleo & jelly is sugar-filled, SO… now that i’ve discovered that all other nut butters are heavenly in their own regard and this new raspberry fruit spread from [@TRADERJOES], i’m determined to bring back PB&J.
i tested it with my family + a few others [@chelsboyle, @jozlow], & after batch 2 — which turned out to be just what i was hoping to create — it’s ready for you!
when you go out to breakfast, the sides are always SO good but also tend to make you feel SO not great. like bacon, sausage, potatoes, etc. they are usually kind of *really* greasy. having breakfast sausage is actually such a solid way to get protein at the beginning of the day, and if you do it yourself, you get to choose what goes in it, how much you have, and how you feel when you eat it!
i’ve been really wanting pancakes lately and decided that sunday was the day. my workout took all my energy (it’s ok, worth it) & i decided pancakes would refuel me appropriately, as long as they were made with the right, clean ingredients. i didn’t honestly think they were going to turn out & they JUST DID. they were so fluffy, so cakey, & just sweet enough [sweetened with a honey squeeze + some mashed banana].

this sweet potato breakfast bowl has become my new version of oatmeal. it’s paleo and is the perfect sweet fix for a hearty breakfast.
it starts with a base of baked mashed sweet potatoes [photo], and there i add in cinnamon and sometimes water, depending if the sweet potato mash needs to be smoother.
my grain-free version of avocado toast uses sliced roasted sweet potatoes that i just pop in the toaster before making the toast! sweet potatoes generally take kind of a while to cook, especially if ya want them to be just right. i’ll usually roast them ahead of time and just toast them (yes, in the toaster) when i want to eat!
