This. This is probably the best recipe I’ve come up with.
I have to give credit for the original recipe inspiration thank you so much, foodie and the family but I’ve made some modifications…you need to give this a try. Especially if you need brekkie on the go.
Sweet pumpkin breakfast frittata
1 apple grated
2 ripe bananas
1/4 pumpkin roasted in coconut oil – chopped quite small should just take 20mins
1 tin coconut cream – if there is any water in your tin, leave it out. Just get that cream in there. Eg, my tin says its 75% coconut cream.
Splash of Maple syrup (optional)
Cinnamon & spices
2 tbsp coconut flour right at the end – i found this helps keep it together
Blend all ingredients except the apple in a food processor, and pour into a baking dish greased with coconut oil. Sprinkle grated apple on top. And then the crunchy almond topping. (See below). Bake for about 25-30 mins at 180 degrees.
Crunchy almond topping:
1 c almonds
Splash of maple syrup
Chop up the almonds roughly, heat a pan nice and hot then put in oil
. put the almonds in and be sure to keep them moving so they don’t burn, this only takes a couple of minutes. Once they’re nice and toasty, splash some maple syrup over and stir around, it will sizzle and get all gooey. Sprinkle this on the bake once cooled, and cook the whole thing at 180/350 for about half an hour.
Optional time saving extras… Although this recipe is so quick!
Just throw the raw almonds in on top, so you don’t have to candy them..
Throw in a handful of sultanas as well!
You can eat this warm, or slice it up and put it in refrigerator for breakfast for the week.
Warning: it’s very delicious, but very filling! I learnt that the hard way 🙂
Can you use canned pumpkin? If so, about how much do u think? This looks delicious, a great alternative to just plain eggs every morning!
Hi, so sorry I hadn’t replied yet. I’m certain you could use canned pumpkin, I would try a 400g can and see how it comes out? It’d be delicious anyway! 🙂
How much coconut cream is in a “tin”? Got the other conversions down but this one threw me. I get my coconut cream concentrate from Tropical Traditions in a 16-oz jar. Thanks!
Hi there! A tin, it’s a can.. it must be a down under Australia/NZ thing!? It’s 400ml, but like I said, mine had some water in so probably worked out to be about a cup (250ml) of coconut cream. I’m sorry I’m not so good with the conversions. Hope it works for you, let me know! 🙂
Do you think this recipe would work with using sweet potato/yams in place of the pumpkin during the off season for the vegetable? 🙂
Hey! Yeah, I actually think that would be quite yummy. Perhaps the quantity of sweet potato could be slightly less, because the moisture content is different to pumpkin? But if you give it a go, be sure to let us know how it goes!
