Coconut Flour Breakfast Bowl : Gluten Free – Sugar Free – Low Calorie

Coconut Breakfast Bowl

Happy New Year Everyone, I hope you reading this feeling good, hungover or indifferent!

This is a recipe I wrote up last year for the ‘Health Bloggers Community‘ E:Book, I felt so proud to be part of such a welcoming and positive community. It’ll come as no surprise that I advise if you do one thing in 2015 make it to join the Health Bloggers, plenty of good vibes, recipe sharing and fun.

There’s a few reasons I wanted to start 2015 by sharing this dreamy and super easy breakfast alternative to oats. Firstly because this is fabulously free from gluten, completely vegan and packed with fibre and natural protein.

The idea of eating coconut flour as a breakfast may sound strange, I admit I was wary initially but once I’d blended it with with creamy yoghurt and added in fresh berries and almond milk I found I was diving into a filling and utterly delicious breakfast.

Also for those whom are carefully watching macros, sugar and energy, if you omit the yoghurt you could enjoy this for well under 250 calories but I do enjoy the added creaminess and additional calories.

I understand that coconut flour is not something everyone would have in and many of you have had baking disasters with this flour (see my tips here). If you are new to coconut flour I would recommend a small bag to start with, I tend to find that Amazon has the best deal’s.

[recipe title=”Coconut Flour Breakfast Bowl” servings=”1″ time=”5 minutes” difficulty=” very easy”]

40g Coconut Flour
100g Yoghurt (I use coconut yoghurt)
150g Almond Milk
Sweetener of choice
Berries/fruit of choice
Method
 
In a breakfast bowl pour in your coconut flour (it won’t look like much at this point) and stir in yoghurt and add milk after (you may or may not need to add a little more), sweeten and enjoy with fruit.

Tell me, did you have a good new year? Are you setting goals for 2015? I hope to be happy, healthy and stop my constant stressing!

    Ooh a breakfast idea for my Whole 30! I am on the hunt for breakfast recipes, and with a slight adaptation this totally works 🙂 Thank you lovely x

    You’re right, it does sound a little strange, but it also looks very yummy and I like that there aren’t too many ingredients in there. Plus I’ve heard of all of them…always a bonus!

      I was so very vary, when I tried a little of the baking mix whilst using Coconut flour and thought ‘Okay this is utterly fab’ but it does take some getting used to. Maybe not for everyone 🙂

    I would never have thought to use coconut flour like this! Great idea, and something I know I’d love 🙂 Also, Happy New Year!

  5. Hi Katie,

    This sounds so delicious! Coconut yoghurt is also a great idea to go with it, will have to check out the local shop for some. Thanks for the inspiration!

    I’m currently on the hunt for some new breakfast ideas! I’ve basically either been having home made granola with natural yoghurt and agave or porridge oats for the last 3 weeks solid, naturally this means I’m now incredibly bored.

    I’m treating myself to some smoked salmon and cream cheese tomorrow on spelt bread which I’m super excited about!

    I’ve only just noticed you’ve broken your recipes down into sections and there’s a whole bit with breakfast ideas! YAY!

    The above sounds delicious and not overly costly to pull together either, I reckon I’ll give it a go next week as a mid-week treat. Never had coconut yoghurt before but I’ve spotted it in my local Waitrose in fairly sizable tubs, could be a good investment as I’m trying to cut down on the dairy side of things 🙂

      Hiii Laura,

      I love coconut yoghurt – It makes oats so much more filling and it’s a wonder alternative to standard diary.

      Granola was an addiction of mine, the issue was I would just spoon it into my mouth in-between meal times on a very very regular basis…

      I do find that sweet pot & eggs is a great breakfast..do try it! 🙂 x
