I liked my Paleo Peach and Pecan Scrambled Eggs so much that I decided to experiment with apples scrambled with eggs!
Now, I usually recommend stuffing your breakfast with vegetables because it’s a great way to get in a few extra servings (Here’s the Hyper Veggie Breakfast Scramble), but sometimes the though of another plate of eggs and spinach at 4 in the morning is too much to handle.
Since I grew up surrounded by apple orchards, they seemed like the perfect fruit to experiment with next. And what’s the best apple dish? …. Apple Pie!
Early versions included chopping and toasting almonds to make a “crust” for the apple/egg mix. But they didn’t taste right and it took an extra ten minutes to chop and toast the nuts. (Minutes matter when you’re making breakfast!)
After 3 or 4 attempts I landed on an apple and egg breakfast dish that not only tastes so good you’ll want to skip the fork and use your hands, it also makes your house smell like Christmas-time when the cinnamon apples are cooking in coconut oil!
Here’s what I use:
- Organic Gala Apple
- 6 Omega-3 eggs
- 1/4 cup coconut milk
- 1 Tablespoon coconut oil
You might cut down on the number of eggs, or use a different kind of apple. Most of the fun in paleo-style cooking is finding out what you like best.
Ok, chop up the apple and dash some cinnamon over the top. (I like the taste of cinnamon, it is also anti-estrogenic and helps improve insulin sensitivity – two VERY good things for your body)
Next heat the coconut oil in a pan over medium-high heat:
Once the coconut oil has coated the pan, throw in the cinnamon-covered chopped apples and let them cook. I usually figure on 5 minutes for them to cook through.
While the apples are cooking, whisk together the eggs, coconut milk, and some cinnamon:
Pour the cinnamon-coconut-egg mix into the pan:
THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT: Keep everything moving. You don’t want the eggs browning to the bottom of the pan. Just keep sliding your spatula around making sure nothing is in one place long enough to stick:
Once the eggs have cooked through, you’re ready to eat! I like to enjoy mine with a mug of green tea and a cool exercise book:
That’s it! Fast, easy, and delicious!
Stay tuned for more cool paleo recipes, I found a website that has bear, yak, and turtle meat. Can’t wait to try it!
