Oh breakfast…so easy yet so hard for Mandy&Spencer. Mainly because we never eat it. Unless brunch at 2:00pm on Saturday’s counts?

31 Jan

Spencer is kind of in panic mode because he’s thinking, “breakfast? without bread or grain??” and i’m like “breakfast? without eggs??” although I should be giving them up because Dr. Geronimo says that may be the cause of my acne problems I have from time to time (what does he know? ha just kidding but really I’m already having withdrawals). But in all honesty whats breakfast without eggs and a side of toast? So I am tirelessly searching all over the internet for something, ANYTHING that does not have eggs and/or grains in, on or around it! sheesh.
Here is what I found. and the pickin’s are slim. Not that slim, I’m just not as creative:





The following are copied and pasted because they were the only one’s that looked good on the page:

Paleo Apple Crisp


  • 4 apples, cored and chopped
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 3/4 cup pecan halves
  • 3/4 cup sliced walnuts
  • 3/4 cup golden raisins


Put apples in an 8-inch square baking dish or 2-quart casserole dish. Drizzle with orange juice, toss until the fruit is coated and smooth the top. In a food processor, combine pecans, walnuts, golden raisins, ginger and cinnamon and pulse just until chopped. Spoon the nut mixture over the apple mixture and serve.

Paleo Bacon and Fruit Breakfast Scramble


  • 1 lb organic bacon in small pieces
  • 2 peaches, cut up in slices
  • 2 pears, sliced and cored
  • 1 apple, sliced and cored
  • 2 tsp cinnamon, or to taste


After cutting up the bacon, cook it in a pan on a medium heat for a few minutes. The fat from the bacon will act as cooking oil/fat for this, so don’t worry about adding any of your own. When the bacon is cooked (but still soft) drain off a little of the fat and add in the chopped fruits. Mix them in with the bacon nicely. Allow everything to cook for around two minutes and stir regularly. Sprinkle and mix in the cinnamon and cook for one more minute.

    These look awesome, I will have to try! I made a paleo porridge this morning and it was just wrong, had to fight the gag reflux. Must have been the texture or something.

      really?? what was in it? i pinned one on pinterest and wanted to try it. you should look and see if that was the one if it is I will take your word for it! haha
      but I had the apple crisp this morning and it was SOO good! I added a little bit of warm 100% maple syrup on top (that’s probably illegal but a lot of the gluten free recipes i was looking at use that in their recipes instead of honey) and it was so tasty! highly recommended!

        I found it on Pinterest and its on my paleo page. it has mashed banana and coconut milk with almond flour and flax meal and lots of spices. Smelled amazing but something about the mushy texture just didn’t sit right with me. Could be just me, I really wanted to like it 😉

    Thats the on i pinned too! yeah… after you explain it…doesn’t sound too appetizing BUT maybe we’ll try it one day

      Let me know if you like it. And I’m pretty sure maple syrup is ok as a sweetener. I’ve seen it in a lot of the paleo recipes, had it my porridge this morning. I think it’s ok cause it’s all natural and unprocessed unlike that high fructose corn syrup syrup we know as mrs. Butterworth.

    very good to know because i noticed the same thing when looking at recipes. thanks for the double checking nicole! and i just used it for the 4th link down the “paleo granola” and oh my heavens it is SO GOOD! we are going to eat it with some almond milk and have it as cereal. Spencer loved it too so that makes me happy!
