Ever have leftovers you just don’t know what to do with? Well, I had no idea what to make with my leftover pumpkin purée, and I needed something for breakfast soooo I kind of just kept throwing everything in a bowl. It’s whole30 approved, although some might not agree that “bars” are compliant to the program. This is definitely not something I would make otherwise, and I needed something that would fill me up while on the run. So the decision is all you on whether or not to make a recipe like this! It’s all about convenience and having something made ahead of time for when you are too busy to prepare food.
- 1 cup pumpkin purée
- 8 eggs
- 3-4 small, very ripe bananas
- 1/3 cup almond butter (preferably chunky)
- 2 Tbsp pumpkin spice
- 1 tsp salt
- optional: 6 puréed dates or 1/4 cup honey (I omitted since it’s breakfast, and whole 30)
- 1/4 cup walnut pieces (optional)
Heat oven to 350 Degrees Fahrenheit. Mash bananas as much as you can with a fork (I like to have some banana chunks); add the rest of the ingredients minus the ghee and mix well in a bowl. Grease a 13×9 pan with ghee & pour the mixture in. Bake for 25-30 minutes until cooked all the way through. Let cool and put in bags for an easy on the go breakfast!
Lately I have been trying to add more gelatin to my diet – mainly through bone broth. and that gets old. very. very. fast. So, I decided to make some gummies, incorporating gelatin & kombucha, both great for healing your gut. They turned out fantastic! Only took 5-10 minutes to make, about an hour to set in the fridge. Great for kids, as a snack, on the go… just make them. They are delicious!
Before putting in the fridge!
- 1 cup blueberries
- 1/2 cup lemon juice
- 1/2 cup kombucha, any flavor (I used synergy mango)
- 5-6 Tbsp Great Lakes gelatin (red container kind that gels)
- optional: stevia/honey/date paste/maple syrup to taste
Mix room-temperature blueberries (I used frozen that thawed) with lemon juice in a blender until smooth. Pour into a saucepan on med heat and add gelatin (and sweetener, if adding). Mix quickly until completely liquidy, then mix in kombucha. Immediately pour into an 8×8 glass pan (or any container you want… It depends on how thick you want your gummies to be).
Let sit in fridge for up to 2 hours. Cut into shapes with small shape cutters, or into tiny squares with a knife (I have small bear shape cutters… But I have no patience to cut out all of those shapes!!). I didn’t really use a sweetener, so they were a little tart… But I made these for a little snack/protein boost + gut healing action. You can mix/match any type of fruit or juice you want!
