Breakfast foods do not need to be reserved for any particular time of day. Personally, I have always had a fondness of breakfast for dinner. Luckily, the fun and creativity of bento requires no confinement to any specific meal either!
Clockwise from top left:
3. Sugar Free Maple-Flavored Syrup
See recipe and instructions below
4. Pancake Breakfast Sandwiches
2 tablespoons coconut flour
1 tablespoon buckwheat flour
1 tablespoon rice protein powder
1 tablespoon acacia fiber
1 tablespoon erythritol
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons liquid egg whites
1-2 tablespoons almond or flaxmilk
1/2 teaspoon maple flavoring
1/4 cup liquid egg whites
1 ounce cheddar
2 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons erythritol
1 teaspoon maple flavoring
Pinch of glucomannan powder
Combine all pancake ingredients; cook in a skillet on medium-low heat until set on both sides. The batter should yield 4 mini pancakes.
Combine patty ingredients and divide into 2 portions. Cook in a covered skillet on medium-low heat until cooked throughout, flipping as needed.
Cook egg whites in two portions until set. *TIP: use a small egg cooking ring to assist in getting the right shape and size for the sandwiches.
Layer the patties, eggs, and cheese between pancakes to make 2 sandwiches.
Combine all syrup ingredients; heat in microwave on medium power until erythritol is dissolved. Serve with sandwiches and fresh tomato slices, if desired.
I hope you are inspired by this idea for the “most important meal of the day,” no matter what hour you choose to enjoy it. Cheers!!
