GAPS Mexi-Chocolate Custard

Standard

I made this a few weeks ago and am finally getting around to putting it on here…  We thought it was really good…although it was not terribly sweet so consider yourself warned and you can feel free to add more honey if you want. 🙂  Anyhow…it is a good, nourishing, GAPS legal snack that you could also have for breakfast…

GAPS Mexi-Chocolate Custard  (8-9 small ramekins, if memory serves me right…depending on how full you want to fill them)

3 c. full fat coconut milk

12 egg yolks

1/2 c. raw honey

1-2 T. vanilla (click here for a post on how to make your own)

1/4 c. cocoa powder

1-1.5 tsp cinnamon (depending on your own preferences)

I put everything in the blender to mix it together.  I had a hard time getting all the cocoa to mix in without being clumpy, so it took a little while to process smoothly.

I greased the ramekins with coconut oil, and poured in the custard.  Bake for roughly an hour at 350 degrees.  Since we have smaller kids who won’t eat as much, I had some filled less full.  For those smaller ones, I watched the baking time and I think it was closer for 45 minutes.

**Edit:  Oops, I forgot! I baked these in 9×12 Pyrex baking dishes with about 1″ of water in it so they didn’t burn.

Enjoy!

My very favorite breakfast (GAPS, SCD, gluten free, grain free)

Standard

I love this breakfast.  I eat it every day and never seem to tire of it.  My littlest and I are on the GAPS diet for healing purposes, and sometimes breakfast seems like the most limiting meal of the day when you’re in a time crunch in the mornings like we are.  It comes together fast and is a great start to the day.

a bed of baby greens or arugula

2 soft cooked eggs, cooked in plenty of coconut oil and butter with a good quality sea salt for extra minerals

2-3 T. homemade kimchi (this is the recipe I use and we love it http://www.healthhomehappy.com/2010/08/kimchi-give-your-sauerkraut-some-variety.html)

1 T. farmer cheese or other GAPS legal cheese

1/2 to 1 whole mashed avocado

Sometimes if I have time, I add a few other chopped veggies like red peppers, cucumber, etc.  On that note…I’m going to go finish my breakfast now…  Happy Friday!!!
