Just Curious! But What Do You Eat For Breakfast?

Recommended Posts

I have a fantastic Gluten Free Granola recipe using Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Rolled Oats. I put it on yogurt or eat with milk. When I want a sweet treat at night, I even put it on a little vanilla ice cream. It is the BEST granola recipe I have ever tried, and the Oats are fantastic.

4 cups oats (NOT quick-cook or instant)

1 1/2 cups whole almonds, shelled, but skin still on ( I crush my almonds)

1/2 cup light brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons ground cinnamon

1/4 cup neutral cooking oil (canola) (I actually use EV olive oil and cannot taste it)

1/4 cup honey

1 teaspoon vanilla extract (gluten-free of course)

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

Mix oats, almonds, brown sugar, salt and cinnamon in a bowl. In a saucepan warm the oil and honey. Whisk in the vanilla extract. Pour the honey, oil, vanilla mixture over the oat mixture and mix gently, but well. Mix with spatula and eventually your hands. Spread out onto a sheet pan and bake for 40 minutes (stir after the first 20). Cool and break up any clumps.


Add coconut, craisins, raisins, etc.

I like to make frittatas, or crustless quiches. just cut up and bag or put in containers, heat and eat! yum!

you can use almost any combination of veggies, meats and cheeses you like, one of my faves is ham and asparagus with parmesan. (OK, now I'm drooling ;-)

and, they also make great lunches!

Just to throw a little goofiness into this discussion, here's what I had for breakfast this week:

leftover baked beans (B&M)

leftover roast beef and mashed potatoes

scrambled eggs with cheese and leftover bacon

frozen homemade corn muffins with butter and honey

homemade split pea soup

I'm out of leftovers from last weekend's cooking binge, so tomorrow will probably be plain yogurt with chocolate syrup and cashews. I used to stress over the lack of breakfast options until I decided that food was food, no matter what time it is. Time for another cooking binge to last me through next week. Mmmmm, meatballs for breakfast would be fantastic....


I never liked bread anyway.....

I eat quinoa: you can cook quinoa with fruit juice so that it is sweet (ish). I use apple juice. 1 cup quinoa to two of juice. Bring to boil and simmer about 15 minutes then allow to cool. I keep a batch in the fridge, then eat for breakfast each day with a sprinke of gluten free muesli and yoghurt. Not too sweet, and very satisfying. Yum.

Someone had posted this idea/recipe in another thread, but I don't remember which one!

I made sweet potato pancakes (I made them for dinner with my eggs, see, I am fast-and-loose when it comes to eating specific foods at specific times) and they were FABULOUS!

All I did was cook a sweet potato, remove the skin, let it cool. Add 1 egg and cinnamon (and maybe a bit of sweetener) and cook just like regular pancakes. The "batter" was a little thicker than pancake batter, more like the consistency of brownies or banana bread batter, but I didn't have the actual recipe so I just decided to wing it. I ate them with honey (since I had no syrup) and they were absolutely amazing!
