IMG_5366-2

These are salty and sweet with a hint of banana flavor. They are gluten free and Paleo! I’ve recently discovered that I do not do well with eggs. So, no more eggs for me 😦 … They were my favorite breakfast food. I ate at least 3-4 a day, maybe that’s why I developed an intolerance!! Too much of anything is not good!

RECIPE:

  • 1/4 cup almond flour (I use Bob’s Red Mill)
  • 2 scoops whey protein (I use grass-fed vanilla whey)
  • 2 TBSP coarsely ground flax seed (365 Organic)
  • 1 TBSP organic sunflower seed butter (Once Again)
  • One small banana – about 6-6.5 inches or so
  • Mega Chunks by Enjoy Life (or any other soy free, dairy free, gluten free, chocolate chips!)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/8  to 1/4 cup butter
  • Sea Salt
