Bacon pancakes sound like a sinful breakfast treat, but these slightly sweet, mostly savory cakes require no repentance. Fluffy, moist and salty with just hint of sweetness, bacon pancakes can be served with a light drizzle of maple syrup, or a dollop of sour cream and a hit of hot sauce.
Peruse the list of ingredients for these Primal pancakes and you’ll see the usual suspects (coconut flour, eggs, butter) mixed with bacon and chives. But this recipe also has something completely new: gelatin. Why add gelatin to pancakes? Because you can, without affecting the flavor or texture.Read More
These aren’t fried eggs, nor are they scrambled. The eggs in these tacos are just slightly set, with a warm, runny yolk that is barely scrambled into the whites. Slide one of these gently cooked eggs into a warm tortilla, top with cool avocado and lime and slices of jalapeno and you’ve got the perfect breakfast taco. Although these egg tacos are delicious for dinner, too.
The main reason to gently scramble an egg is that it tastes delicious. The whites are fully cooked, but the yolk is runny, which gives the egg a soft and creamy texture. The second reason to gently scramble an egg, rather than whisk it all together and cook it over high heat, is that the cholesterol stays intact. Meaning it’s not oxidized, which is a healthier way to enjoy eggs.Read More

It’s hard to decide which is more delicious, these savory bacon and cheddar keto muffins, or the original blueberry flavor. Both flavors are made from the same basic recipe with a simple gluten-free ingredient list that includes almond flour, butter, heavy cream and an egg.
The lightly sweetened blueberry version is a delicious morning treat, but this combination of bacon and sharp cheddar is equally hard to resist. Who doesn’t love bacon? These rich and flavorful muffins are perfect for busy mornings (keep a batch in the fridge or freeze, and warm one in the microwave) or for leisurely weekend brunches.Read More
It takes less time to make these donuts than it does to drive to your local donut shop, and you’re rewarded with a yummy treat made from simple, pure ingredients. Almond flour, eggs, butter and heavy cream, plus the sweetener of your choice, are the main (and pretty much only) ingredients in these Primal and keto cake donuts.
These keto donuts have a light, springy, cake-like texture. They can be eaten plain, or drizzled with dark chocolate for a really delicious treat. Admittedly, they don’t taste like the sticky-sweet glazed donut at your local donut shop. Expect these donuts to be lighter, less sweet and to not inflict any sort of sugar crash after the last bite.Read More
