Simple + Nutritious Breakfast / Snack Recipe
Whilst I have been focusing on a grain-free lifestyle for health, experimenting in the kitchen has been fun!
Struggling to find time, recipes or ingredients are the main thing that can stop you from creating something great! If you are on-the-go and need something to snack on or give you a boost in the morning along with a morning drink, this may be it! The flax in this recipe will bind it perfectly; so don’t worry about it falling apart; plus the probiotic yoghurt will make it nice and fluffy along with a nice crunch from the seeds.
This recipe is really simple, tried and tested and never failed, certainly one you can create too!
*For my personal morning routine - I would eat this after taking my live probiotics and lots of lemon water - as part of my intermittent fasting regime. Breaking the fast with soft fruit such as papaya moments after. This “cake” will last a good 4 days on the counter - perfect for taking on-the-go and is also child friendly!

2 cups of flax meal
1 cup of probiotic coconut yogurt
Handful of poppy seeds
1 tbsp of coconut oil / cultured coconut butter
1 cup of polenta seed (if you can’t find that use almond meal)
2 cups of mylk (teff/coconut/nut based)
1 tbsp of dark coconut sugar (optional)
1 tbsp of cinnamon (optional)
1 tsp of baking soda
1 cup of filtered water
1 tbsp of lemon juice (a great addition but make sure you use good quality baking soda otherwise it will turn the cake green)
Heat the oven to 170°C
Prepare your baking dish and line with recycled baking paper
Add 1 cup of water to the flax meal and let it sit for 3 minutes
Combine the dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately
Bring it together into one bowl and fold lightly, don’t mix vigorously
The mixture should represent a very loose bread dough as shown in the photo below
You can go ahead and add in some dried berries or even sliced banana on top before baking
Pour into the dish, and tap it down so the mixture is flat (it will only rise about 1”)
Place into the oven for 16-20 minutes
Slice and enjoy!
Try it out!
Have a happy Summer / Winter Season !!
