Gluten Free Maple Raspberry Breakfast Yogurt Sundae
This tangy, creamy yogurt is loaded with calcium and plenty of protein, nearly twice as much as regular yogurt keeping you feeling full throughout the morning. You want to use a plain, nonfat greek yogurt and don’t; be afraid it will be sour because adding Lite and Sweet to your to your recipe will enhance the natural tangy flavor while being sweet like a regular sugar yogurt.
Add some extra sweetness and flavor from the berries making this yogurt sundae irresistible. I use raspberries since they are a source of ellagitannins, a type of antioxidant. The other benefit of raspberries is they are also high in fiber, vitamin C, and vitamin K, which helps build strong bones. I also love using blueberries because they are a super-fruit also packing lots of antioxidant called anthocyanin. Studies suggest that eating blueberries regularly can help improve memory and motor skills to blood pressure and metabolism. Blueberries are also lower in calories than a lot of other fruits they contain 80 calories per cup, so you can feel good about eating extra blueberries on your Yogurt without worrying about your waistline.
You can use fresh or frozen berries year-round and during the off season they are usually cheaper when buying it frozen. This gluten free maple raspberry breakfast yogurt Sunday is my favorite for the reason that is yuck, ready to make and you can always take it with you on your way out the door and eat it on the go.
Gluten Free Oatmeal-Almond Berry Pancake
I am not a fan of eating too much carbs for breakfast, I usually prefer to eat fruits and a healthy portion of oatmeal. However my girls love pancakes and when you buy pre-made ones they are terrible with white flour, sugar and no nutrition. That’s why I make these healthy and Gluten Free Oatmeal-Almond Berry Pancakes for them, It’s seriously a healthy recipe you can’t pass up. These are the best healthy recipe for pancake you can make. I use almond flour, oats, almond milk, egg, coconut oil, xylitol and erythritol to sweeten it. These pancakes turn out beautifully and you can trick everyone in eating more fibers and protein when eating these pancakes. These pancakes are wholesome, naturally sweetened, easy to make, and nourishing. Pretty much everything I look for when making and eating breakfast.
Make a batch of these pancakes even for the biggest white-flour-lovin people and it will win over their hearts. Almond flour and oats combined make a perfect combo because it doesn’t give you the dense texture that sometimes you get when eating whole grain whole wheat pancakes. It takes less then 5 minutes to put together and another few to make not bad to please everyone making a healthy breakfast and making you the favorite cook. I am converted to this recipe and now I enjoy eating pancakes because it docent have flour and is the most delicious pancakes I have ever had. Just make sure you top it with a sugar free healthy fruit or maple syrup. I have a great recipes on the blog for sugar free fruit jams and maple syrup. Topping with fruits and other sugar free tasty syrups can add an extra sweeteners to these healthy pancakes making you feel good about making healthy pancakes and enjoying to eat them.
Gluten Free Pistachio Pomegranate Oatmeal
Have you ever noticed a heart-shaped seal on the box of oatmeal before and wondered about the reason. This seal is there because oats contain beta-glucan, a type of fiber that has been shown to help plower cholesterol when you eat regularly. I use oatmeal on my pancakes, on my smoothies and by it self because how rich it is in omega 3 fatty acids, folate, and potassium. Steel-cut oats are my favorite kind even though they usually take 15 minutes cook, because they contains more fiber than rolled oats or the instant varieties that’s what I prefer to eat. In truth most kind of oatmeal is good and for the recipe I use the old fashioned oats is a healthy choice also, just please avoid the flavored kinds which is packed with sugars that defeats the purpose of a healthy breakfast. But don’t worry it won’t be sweet because I am using Lite and Sweet to sweeten the oatmeal. Lite and Sweet is a natural sweetener blend of xylitol and erythritol. My favorite sweetener to use because its very low calorie and don’t affect my blood sugar. Keeping my sweet tooth satisfied and not craving sugary treats.
You can very simply make this recipe by cooking the oatmeal with water, then once is ready I add a few spoons of plain unsweetened greek yogurt to get it creamy and delicious. I next sweeten with Lite and Sweet and use cardamom which is great for detoxification of the body. Cardamom is such a good spice to use for many reasons and I love the herbal and citrusy profile that goes well with the oatmeal combining with the pomegranate pistachios and pumpkin seeds. The seeds give the oatmeal a rich taste and add numerous benefits seeds to your breakfast. From healthy protein, vitamin K, and fiber. This breakfast has so many benefits and will help maintain you full and healthy by supporting an active lifestyle and reduce nutrition related problems.
