Remember, the Paleo diet will be quite restricted to eggs, lean meat, and vegetables. Even so, breakfast need not be boring. Spice it up. Play around with whatever is allowed.

Blackberry Bars

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup coconut flour, shredded coconut blended into powder
  • 1/2 cup coconut, shredded
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup NuNaturals Baking Blend (or sugar, agave, maple syrup, honey, whatever you’d like)
  • 2 bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2-1 cup almond milk
  • 1 cup blackberries, fresh or frozen

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease baking pan and set aside. In a large bowl, mix together the coconut flour, shredded coconut, cinnamon, baking powder and soda. Season with salt. Add in the NuNaturals Baking Blend or sugar sub. Mix again. In the same bowl, add in the bananas, eggs, melted coconut oil, vanilla extract, 1/4 cup almond milk. Mix until all ingredients are incorporated, adding in more almond milk, as needed for mixing.  Add in enough almond milk so the batter is the consistency of cookie batter (but will probably be slightly drier). Fold in the blackberries and spoon the batter into the greased pan. Bake for 40 minutes or until the sides are golden. Remove from oven and cool.
