As the weather cools off and the evenings free up, I have found myself starting to cook more often. There’s something about Fall that makes it one of the most peaceful and gratifying things for me to do!
I get asked quite a bit about my favorite go-to recipes and things to keep on hand. So here we go! I love to stay with a gluten-free, whole-food approach to anything I make at home. These are three of my quick and easy favorites!
Grilled Pineapple, Onions, & Jalapeno
Stay with me here.. It LOOKS very strange. It’s actually very good and as a bonus, it’s adjustable!
Slice a fresh pineapple however you like it. I prefer chopped. Add a sliced jalapeno and chopped onion and grill until it’s slightly browned. Trust me on this one.
Who doesn’t love pancakes?! On to the next one:
Easy Egg-Banana Pancackes
This one is just as easy! I take two fresh eggs and mix them with a banana until it’s a relatively smooth consistency. The eggs will allow the banana to set. I grill mine over a little bit of coconut oil until they’re cooked through and drizzle with raw, unfiltered honey. Perfection in the form of protein and potassium for breakfast.
The next one comes with a disclaimer: These will be gone before they hit the counter. It may be best to make these under cover of night before the other house mates catch wind of it.
(Hey.. I had to think of something besides “Magic”..)
You can adjust this however you’d prefer. I like to take a little of each in a bowl and add the honey and coconut oil until it’s pliable but holds together. Spread the resulting mixture into a thinly oiled pan until they’re a little over an inch thick. I cover them with wax paper and let them set for about an hour in the fridge. This is one that may take some trial and error. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve ended up with something more like granola cereal instead. No matter what, it will be just as good!
I hope you’ll try these and enjoy!
