Gluten free - dairy free - refined sugar free - egg free - nut free - vegetarian
Another installment in my Breakfast Ideas series! This is a nice change from porridge and this amount makes enough for about 4 people for breakfast. Funnily enough, I was never a fan of Rice Pudding for dessert when I was a kid...maybe because it didn't quite feel "dessert-ish" enough! Having said that, if you don't have a massive sweet tooth like I do, you might really like this for dessert!! I developed this one myself over a few batches, to come up with this favourite mix of ingredients.

I've been experimenting with using coconut flour and have finally come up with a savoury muffin that I'm happy with! If you like a more savoury breakfast, these would be great- even better with a bit of fried bacon, tomato and mushroom on the side! They make an excellent lunch box snack too. They freeze well so you can pull them out when you need them.
Coconut flour is really nothing like regular flour. It needs to be baked with lots of egg to help give it it bind. These muffins are actually a bit of a cross between a muffin and a frittata due to the amount of egg. They are grain free and dairy free. They are packed full of vegetable and protein goodness- a great way to fill up for the day!
Makes about 10 medium sized muffins. Double the recipe if you want to freeze a batch for later.

In my continuing quest to help inspire you all to make interesting, healthy, filling, ' Friendly' breakfasts, I suddenly had the inspiration to convert a cookie recipe that I make regularly make something more breakfast-like. The original recipe had egg in it and I decided I wanted to try and make it egg-free for those with egg allergies. Replacing the egg with Chia worked really well.
Of course, this doesn't have to be eaten for breakfast. It's pretty sweet (although only sweetened with honey) and these make a great lunch box snack too. When eating for breakfast, I cut the slice into 12 pieces, but if using for a snack, I'd make it into 24. It's really filling! I have it pictured above with some Chocolate Avocado Mousse.
For something more indulgent you could replace the dried fruit with 100g of dark chocolate (says the chocoholic!!)
Serves 12 for breakfast, or 24 as a snack.
