Breakfast Saviours

Most people when they start on Paleo have trouble with breakfast. Most of us grew up on a toast and cereal start to the day and now the rug has been pulled out from under us. I was never a fan of eggs and have slowly over the years succumbed to poached, boiled and fried alternatives. I was highly motivated to make more interesting and tasty breakfast and branched into the art of omelette making, which is wonderful for healthy breakfasts whereby one can use loads of greens and other healthy vegetables and spices. Leftovers are a good option too, but with my family of four, leftovers are rather uncommon. For weightloss and increased energy a high protein and fat breakfast is an excellent way to fuel your day.
BUT sometimes I really feel like something else. Here are two of my favourite breakfasts that are Paleo but almost feel like cheating. Our kids really love these too. Enjoy!

Banana Pancakes


  • 3 Medium Bananas - the thick and mealy kind if possible
  • 1 Free range organic egg


Step 1
Mix the ingredients together in a food processor or for the Thermomix - 5 seconds on level seven. The batter should be thick.
Step 2
Melt some Grass fed butter or coconut oil in a frying pan and add batter. Make small pancakes (pikelets). Take out when they are golden brown on each side. Eat with a shake of cinnamon. Or you can add, slithered almonds, maple syrup etc depending on your weight loss goals. I use greenish bananas with low sugar content for a guilt free breakfast 🙂

Paleo Muesli


  • 1/2 granny smith apple (chopped)
  • 1 heaped tablespoon slithered almonds
  • 1 teaspoon linseeds
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds white
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds black
  • 1 heaped teaspoon pumpkin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon soaked chia seeds
  • coconut milk


I make a bigger batch of the dry mixture as in my picture in a jar and almost ways have coconut milk and green apples (as they are low in fructose) in the fridge. Try to buy Organic green apples or grapes if you want to use them as these fruits can be especially full of pesticides.
I try to eat this once a week or have it on standby for days when I don't have enough time to cook. Buying bulk seeds and nuts can cut down on costs.
Extra bonus - Kids love it too


Step 1
Add all of the dry ingredients to the bowl. You can also add other nuts and seeds as desired or chopped grapes, sultanas, chopped dates etc
Step 2
Add your desired amount of coconut milk and enjoy


Another way to enjoy your breakfast, is to have someone else cook it for you. Check out our Paleo Holidays in Chiang Mai Thailand.
