My favourite thing to have for breakfast is cake. I like to pour thick cream all over it too. No, I am not one of those people who can eat anything and stay slim and neither do I exercise like a fiend in order to afford a few more calories. I eat as much as I want and I eat lots of natural fat but I eat limited carbohydrates. My carbohydrates come from fruit and vegetables, but I don't eat starches or grains, except perhaps in a restaurant once a month, and I don't eat added sugars, not even in those fake healthy forms called honey or maple syrup. But I do have cake for breakfast nearly every day.
I use coconut oil, ground flax, berries, an egg and a touch of baking powder, and I'm not sure the baking powder is all that necessary. Initially I sweetened it with liquid stevia, but now I don't bother as I am no longer accustomed to eating sweetened things.
1 tbsp melted coconut oil or butter
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/4 cup ground flax seed/ almond meal combination*
1 tsp baking powder
2 drops liquid Stevia if required or sweeten to equivalent of 1 tsp sugar however you desire
3/4 cup approx of berries fresh or frozen.
Using a microwave, melt the coconut oil or butter in a small bowl. Beat in the egg with a fork and add the dry ingredients and sweetener if using. Stir in the berries and microwave on high for 2 minutes. Sprinkle with chopped nuts if desired and top with cream or Greek yogurt. Eat it right out of the bowl when it is cool enough.
* Finely ground almond meal is sometimes known as almond flour. The more flax the more it is similar to a bran muffin and the more almond meal the more it is like a cake
