Paleo Maple Bacon Pancake Bars

Oven Baked Maple Bacon Pancake Bars that are healthy, gluten-free and paleoOven Baked Paleo Pancake Bars with Maple syrup and BBBBBBBACON!!!

I have been living a lie my whole life.

Pancake Bars

Turkey bacon is nothing like real bacon. I figured that out the hard way. My parents are attempting to eat a more paleo-based diet and cut down on preservatives, which include one in turkey bacon. Funny thing is, we actually believed that turkey bacon was healthier because it had less fat, but since we started eating less unprocessed foods, my parent decided to give real, uncured bacon a chance. 

Pancake Bars

Real bacon is unbelievable. Me and my parents are hooked and we have been eating it at least 3-4 times per week. This is my first time baking with it, and wow, these pancake bars taste amazing!

Pancake Bars

Pancake bars are pretty much like pancakes cut into squares, minus the flipping and mess making (at least if you are me) with the delicious combination of bacon and maple, these are to-die-for. Short on time during the week to make a healthy breakfast, make a batch of these on Sunday and you will have a delicious and filling breakfast for the whole entire week. You’ll never want to flip a pancake again.

Don’t judge me, but I used to have a t-shirt that said “I want Muffin’ to do with you.” Yea it happened, back in 5th grade when Limited Too was still around and popular. I also had a “Stud Muffin” magnet that I put in my locker. and Oh, I was also obsessed with the popular and kinda creepy “Muffins” video on youtube.

My love for muffins has obviously always been extremely prominent

Anyway I think we can all agree that muffins are awesome. But you know what’s even more awesome? Muffins made with only 4 ingredients, no flour, one bowl, and no mess, now thats pretty awesome! Our friends at Blue Diamond Almonds sent us Salted Caramel Almonds and Blueberry Almonds this month. So as usual, we were both pretty stoked about the awesome flavor of the both kinds of almonds, but salted caramel anything is our favorite flavor.

Paleo Mexican Breakfast Hash

 

 

Take your breakfast to the next level with this satisfying fiesta in a skillet

Guess what guys?  I’ve been living in denial the past 15 years of my life.  Why you ask?  Because before a few months ago, I would never touch red meat because I thought it was bad for me so I always opted for poultry instead.  But chicken and turkey never satisfied my need for meat quite like lean beef does.

I was believing the lies about the risks of eating red meat that were all over the news and in the health magazines I read.  I guess you could say that I’m  equivalent to an adult who still believes in the tooth fairy, I’m that gullible.

In fact, not only does lean beef taste a million times better than any other protein, it easily fits into a healthy diet!  With 25 grams of protein and 10 essential nutrients in a 3 oz. serving, lean beef satisfies your hunger while doing your body good!  Significant  Research even shows that some people can lose or maintain a healthy weight, support healthy metabolism, and age more vibrantly when they consume high-quality protein within their specific caloric goals.

Lean beef is like building a brick house.  You need high-quality materials like bricks to build a strong foundation so your house can last through anything.  Consuming high-quality protein is necessary to replenish your body so you can be strong and healthy for life!

 

Now we all know that lean ground beef can be used for nearly any dinner recipe; burgers, meatballs tacos etc.  But what about breakfast?  Why not start off your day on the right foot by giving your body the protein and essitenal nutrients it needs to get the day going?  And when your breakfast is delicious, easy to make, healthy and tastes like a fiesta in your mouth, why even question it?

 

Mexican Breakfast Hash (serves 4)

Ingredients

  • 1 pound lean (%85) ground beef
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1 large baked sweet potato, cubed
  • 1/2 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 large tomato, finely chopped
  • 1/2 avocado, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1/4 tsp. cumin
  • salt and pepper
  • sour cream, optional

Instructions

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and spray with cooking spray.
  2. Add ground beef and onions. Break up ground beef using a spatula.
  3. Once beef is slightly browned add in sweet potato.
  4. In a small bowl, combine beaten eggs with cumin, cilantro and slat and pepper.
  5. Add eggs to skillet, flipping mixture with spatula until eggs are dispursed evenly.
  6. Add in tomato and avocado and cook for another 5 minutes.
  7. Serve with sour cream and more fresh cilantro.
  8. Enjoy!

Triple Berry Chocolate Clafoutis

claf9

I was searching around the internet yesterday to find some inspiration and I came across a recipe for a Clafoutis. I had no idea what a Clafoutis was so I decided to look up the definition.

claf8

Clafoutis: a tart made of fruit, especially cherries, baked in a thick, sweet batter, AKA it’s like a soufflé cake thingy and it tastes pretty darn awesome, especially since it only has 5 ingredients, it’s #easyasbreeze to make and it’s made with Blue Diamond Chocolate Almond milk!

_MEL3279

Apparently it’s a french dessert, I used to take french in high school but it wan’t my forte. I took it for four years and stopped after Honor’s french, there was nooo way I would have  been able to make it to AP french. It’s been quite a while since I have taken french, but atleast I still know a few sentences!

Il Fait chaud: It is hot

Je m’appelle Rachelle : My name is Rachel

J’ai gros chat leo nommé: I have a fat cat named Leo

J’aime faire Clafoutis: I like making clafoutis

claf3

 

Yea I guess I’m pretty much fluent…..nahhhh. Anyways this Clafoutis is super duper easy to make, even though it sounds really complicated, even I was afraid that it wasn’t going to turn out because it was so simple to make! To my surprise, it turned out perfectly. 

claf7-2

My Dad loved this, when he asked what it was, I said it was a Clafoutis and he said, “an Octopus?” Yes Dad, I made an Octopus.

Paleo Cranberry-Lemon Upside Down Coffee Cake

 Paleo Cranberry Lemon Upside Coffee Cake is a sweet and filling breakfast that will go perfect with coffee! Hard to believe it’s healthy, grain-free + gluten-free!

So excited to share with you my take on this month’s recipe redux theme! The theme this month was to recreate a recipe from a cookbook and make it healthier! I chose a recipe from a Taste of Home magazine, since I don’t own any cookbooks in my apartment.

Paleo Cranberry Lemon Upside Coffee Cake is a sweet and filling breakfast that will go perfect with coffee! Hard to believe it's healthy, grain-free + gluten-free!

I found the recipe for this Cranberry-Pineapple upside-down Cake and decided to take the idea of the recipe but completely recreate it with different, healthier ingredients. Instead of regular flour, I used coconut and used honey instead of refined sugar along with many other changes I also subbed in lemon zest for the pineapple and decided to top off the cake with Homemade lemon curd! This Cake is perfect for Christmas morning breakfast, dessert, or an anytime snack!

🍩 worry, be happy.  Sorry for the corny intro, but it had to happen because DONUTSSSS.  Today I’m sharing with you a recipe that I actually posted on the blog in summer 2014 (aka one of the first recipes every posted on Athletic Avocado).  After seeing how popular they were with less than ideal pictures, I went on a quest to recreate them.  The first pictures back from two years ago didn’t do justice to present how good these donuts actually are.

I remember when my eyes would light up with joy when I sunk my teeth into a glazed donut.  It just melts in your mouth, then the fluffiness of the donut takes the show away.  Ahhhh I’m drooling.  But regular donuts are fried and sugary and  give me no energy what so ever.  These donuts on the other hand, different story😉
