Warning. I haven’t tried this recipe below yet, but I am going to give it a whirl this weekend. I got this recipe off Jen’s Gone Paleo. She always has great looking stuff and I have to remember to stay off her page if I am hungry!!
So I started searching around because I was needing some new breakfast ideas. I eat eggs almost every day which isn’t too bad because I am a habitual eater, meaning I can pretty much survive off of the exact same thing every single day. However, on Sundays I like to switch it up a bit. I usually have extra time on my hands and I don’t have to teach a class until 2:00 pm. This leaves plenty of time to get up, drink some coffee, make a great breakfast and clean my house. Yawn, definitely not an exciting life, but it is relaxing after a long week.
Anyways, back when I started paleo I posted a recipe called Paleo Pancakes from Mark’s Daily Apple. If you are ever needing some great recipes and some great guidance check out Mark’s Daily Apple. It is a great source for anyone trying to live a healthier lifestyle. He tackles real world situations and there is always something interesting to read.
I digress. I have been making those pancakes for quite a while but needed something different. So, I looked around my bookmarked Paleo Sites and found this recipe to curb your oatmeal craving. So I am planning on making this on Sunday and I will give you an update next week on how they go. If you get a chance to make this recipe this weekend post your success in the comments below. I would love to hear how it turned out!!!
1/2 Roasted Acorn Squash, pureed (also try other winter squash like Kabocha, Butternut, or Delicata)
1 T. Almond Butter
1 tsp. Cinnamon
1-2 T. Ground Flax Seeds (I always buy the seeds and grind them right before use)
1/2 tsp. Pure Maple Syrup (if desired…the squash is usually sweet enough, after roasting, on it’s own)
- Squish the squash, almond butter, and cinnamon in a bowl.
- Sprinkle with flax and drizzle with maple syrup (if using).
This would make a great post-workout snack or can be eaten in place of your morning bowl of oatmeal/porridge, served with sausage and/or eggs.
Stay Active, Stay Healthy, and Have a great weekend!
