Apple Flax Breakfast Cake

Merry Christmas! I’ve got a simple, healthy recipe made with real food for you today. This breakfast cake is a delicious way to incorporate healthy eating and healthy lifestyle habits into your holiday. I used my favorite organic brown rice cereal, too. It makes gluten-free baking a cinch.

Some of my favorite holiday memories are from Christmas morning. There were always lots of presents under the tree and our stockings were overflowing with sweet little gifts while Christmas music played in the background. But that wasn’t made the moment really special. It was actually my mom’s Christmas morning breakfast that made it perfect.

When we woke up Christmas morning, our kitchen counter was adorned with fresh fruit, healthy breakfast pastries, fresh juice and coffee (for the adults, of course.) And Mom didn’t just plop the food out on whatever was convenient. It was all beautifully displayed on holiday plates.

We’d open some presents, grab a little food, and munch on it while we opened more presents. And then do it all over again.

Now that I’m a mom and I know how much work goes into the holidays with just one kid. I am in awe of how she pulled it off with three of us. She had to be so tired that her bones hurt.

This healthy holiday breakfast recipe is one of my mom’s recipes made-over to be gluten-free, refined sugar-free, and dairy-free. It was one of my favorite breakfast treats as a kid. I still love it today.

The great thing about this cake is that you can make it the night before and it’s even better in the morning. You can freeze it and thaw it. You can serve it with a breakfast-style frosting or whipped cream or serve it with no topping at all. It doesn’t need one but it sure doesn’t hurt it either.

To keep this breakfast cake dairy-free, try whipped coconut cream on the side. It gives people the option to dress it up or leave it as is. My mom always served it with a lightly sweetened whipped cream cheese frosting. (http://simplysugarandglutenfree.com/whipped-cream-cheese-frosting/)

What do you do to make the holiday special and still keep things healthy?
