Coffee and Walnut Baked Porridge with a Cool Coffee Sauce
Coffee and walnut always reminds me of my great-grandmother - she absolutely loved the cake, and if anyone was stuck for a birthday gift, you knew what to make. Luckily, the same tastes extended to my grandmother, so that’s what my sister and I made for her as a birthday gift this year, too.
I love omelets! They’re protein packed, customizable to exactly what I feel like enjoying, and if I mess it up, well, then I’m in for one seriously delicious plate of scrambled eggs haha! I like to start with a mix of 1 whole regular egg and a mess of carton egg whites to get a good mix of fat and protein (want them fluffy? add a splash of water & beat them before cooking). I hope this list of 54 possible fillings inspires you to get creative and think beyond the carton haha.
Here’s my top 5 favorite combinations:
- The Chinese Take-Out: healthy fried rice (recipe on my instagram) with added zucchini, green beans, and broccoli (cook the veggies with the fried rice then use the loaded rice as your filling)
- Inside-Out Burrito: black beans, cheddar cheese, fresh cilantro, peppers, tomatoes, chipotle blend seasoning
- Italy Calling: mozzarella, parmesan, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, extra garlic, fresh chopped basil
- Green Machine: spinach, peas, asparagus, shaved brussels sprouts, goat cheese, dried rosemary
- The All American: potatoes, American cheese, spinach, mushrooms, & a little bit of garlic powder

Some days are made for warm hours stretched beneath the sunshine and some days are made for cozy blankets, long movies and fresh baked brownies. We definitely had one of the latter days here in Texas yesterday. You may have seen some jokes like this floating around Facebook and Reddit which are all too true as well as funny.
The sound of sleet tapping on my window and the chill seeping underneath the door had me reaching for a hot cup of coffee and this brownie recipe in no time. While these brownies don’t have any flour and refined sugar in them you will still find them to have a dense, cake-y and chocolate-y texture and flavor. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself reaching for this recipe time and time again : )
Almond & Cocoa Brownies
- 1/4 a cup of ghee or butter, melted
- 1/4 a cup of cold pressed coconut oil, melted
- 1/2 of a cup of local honey
- 1 tbsp of vanilla
- 3 pastured eggs
- 1 cup of almond flour
- 1/2 cup of cocoa powder, sifted
- 1/4 tsp of baking soda or baking powder
- 1/4 tsp of fine grain sea salt
- a handful or two of dark chocolate chips (dairy free if required)
- sea salt for garnish ( optional)
- Preheat oven to 350 F.
- In a food processor or in a large bowl mix together all of your wet ingredients until well combined.
- Next, pour in all of your dry ingredients except the chocolate chips. Mix very well until smooth.
- Stir in half the amount of chocolate chips you are using, set aside the other half.
- Pour batter into a greased 8x8 inch pan.
- Half way through cooking time sprinkle the rest of the your chocolate chips on top of the brownies.
- Bake for 30 min or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Please remember that all ovens cook differently so check your brownies occasionally because almond flour is prone to burn. As always, cooking time can vary by oven.
- Sprinkle with a whisper of sea salt directly after removing from the oven if you enjoy a little saltiness to balance out sweetness.
- Allow to cool for 15-20 minutes before cutting and serving.
Gorgeous and paleo.
Oatmeal Breakfast CookieIngredients
- ¼ cup Oats
- 2 Tbls whole wheat flour
- ¼ tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp vanilla
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- 1 Tbls maple syrup (I use sugar free)
- 3 Tbls vanilla Greek yogurt (I used Chobani Non-Fat)

- Stir everything together in a bowl until everything is combined. Place in the center of a small microwave plate. The mixture will be pretty wet, this is not something you can really do with your hands. Gently press down, just slightly. Microwave for 60-70 seconds. Your cookie is done when it springs back, and is no longer sticky on top. Enjoy warm for gooey chocolate!
