Hello, everyone! I am finally taking the time to sit down and write a new post…this time including a new recipe!
But first—Easter weekend! I was thrilled that Barbi and her sweet little family were able to drive here for Easter! They not only got to spend time with us all, but they got to meet Baby Gracie! The only disappointing part of the weekend was that my 2Lt was not able to be here since he is still half-way across the country in training!
Here are a few obligatory pictures from the weekend!
This morning I decided to have something different for breakfast than my usual sunny-side up eggs and fruit. I have been trying hard to get back on track with eating in a healthy manner since the guys brought in lots of sweets and other carbs over the weekend. And of course, I served our traditional Pavlova for Easter dessert!
This recipe makes one serving. It calls for baking it in the oven, but I used the microwave for about one minute. Either way is just fine.
- 1 cup mixed berries (frozen or fresh)
- 3 tbsp. low-carb flour blend (I used my own flour blend of oat, almond, and flax)
- 1 tbsp. unsweetened coconut flakes
- 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- dash of salt
- 1 tbsp. sweetener (I used Pyure)
- 1/2 scoop protein powder
- 1-1/2 tbsp. coconut oil, melted
Place the berries in the bottom of a small baking dish. Mix remaining dry ingredients in a small bowl and then stir in coconut oil until it is a crumbly mixture. Sprinkle over the top of the fruit. Bake at 375 degrees for about 25 minutes, or put into microwave for about one minute or until the berries burst.
Serve topped with about 1/4 cup Greek yogurt.
