Recipes

Sounds like there's some great tricks for eating deliciously well that are floating around conversations (I can't wait to try the chocolate squares.and butter buttons I read about, wishing I remembered where those were/who posted them, will seek out after...) Thanks for the great inspirations, thought it might be nice to have a thread to put all those suggestions in one place for snack attack time! Here's my current favorite breakfast:
GRAIN FREE BANANA PANCAKES
- 2 eggs
- 1 banana
- butter
Mush the banana as much as possible, whip in the eggs. Fry in good butter (or whatever you like, coconut oils good too), top with whatever you fancy :
Ideas:
Sweet: maple syrup, honey, fruit, yogurt, choc chips, peanut butter
Savory:sour cream with dill and salmon, curry mixed into cottage cheese

My.buddy told me about these, and they are endlessly delicious

We make these all the time! LOVE them, and so so easy. I usually make a double or triple batch so we can have them for a few days. I have seasonal access to raw butter, so right now I'm smearing them with loads of it!

Moar Recipes please. I'll be trying this one tomorrow morning!

And, gosh, raw butter? That sounds like a dream. I wake up having dreamt about access to wholesome, raw dairy products. You are the Luckiest!

I love our raw butter over here! It is available through our herdshare! It is delicious!
@momma2finn Maybe email the head of your local Weston A. Price chapter? They might be able to direct you to a local source! http://www.westonaprice.org/get-invo...al-chapter/#ia

If we're sharing recipes, here's a link to my favourite muffins:
http://www.marthastewart.com/339779/...orning-muffins

I know, I know, it's Martha, but they're pretty healthy. I usually sub half the flour for whole wheat, and add a tsp of cinnamon. My girls love them, and the littlest will actually eat carrots that way!

My other favourite thing to do lately is to add 1/2 cup of pureed beets to my regular pancake recipe. Makes pink pancakes that the kids love, and they're eating beets!

This is a great idea! Do you cook the beets first? I'm not sure my food processor could handle raw beets.

Yes they're cooked. I usually roast them whole then purée a bunch. Then I put them in the freezer in 1/2 cup amounts and pull them out of the freezer as needed.

I find beets too minerally tasting, but like the idea of pink pancakes. This is silly, but do the pancakes taste vegetal or are they more sweet? I might try a raspberry sauce and maybe stir in some cocao (SP?) nibs if they are more on the sweet side.

As far as pancakes go, I make Japanese okonomiyaki for my kids frequently. I make a basic pancake batter, but thin it with lots of milk and add shredded cheese, raw shrimp, and lots and lots of shredded cabbage. Sounds nasty, but I HAVE to eat mine topped with BBQ sauce and my homemade garlic aioli, and bonito flakes if I can find any. To die for-- I especially appreciate crazy flavor combos when I'm PG!

They actually don't taste very beety, and they're sweet. I usually smother mine in peanut butter and maple syrup.

Your savoury pancakes sound delicious too! I'll have to try those.
