No grain, no sugar added blueberry breakfast loaf

If you're going to eat Paleo, typical foods are often out of the question. Here is a recipe for what might look like "muffins" or a "loaf cake" but with none of the stuff that makes us sick!

Grain free blueberry loaf cake:

2/3 cup coconut flour (available at Whole Foods)
3 tablespoons chia seeds + 9 tablespoons water
3 eggs
1/3 cup oil of your choice (vegetable, almond, peanut, grapeseed)
crushed walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

1) Combine chia seeds and water and let sit for a few minutes, stirring occasionally until they are gooey.

2) Crush blueberries in a separate bowl with a fork.

3) Combine rest of ingredients except walnuts and stir until well mixed. It creates an interesting texture unlike cake batter. It should feel somewhat elastic.

4) Place into greased 8x8 baking pan and use a fork to evenly layer it through out the pan.

5) Top with crushed walnuts and push down into batter with fork.

6) Bake about 30 minutes until extreme edges begin to brown.

Slice into brownie shaped pieces. 8 pieces per pan= approx 10 g carb (5 of those 10 being fiber).

In this recipe, the chia seeds are being used to replace eggs. Depending on your level of interest, you could even substitute the remaining eggs with 1 and 1/2 mashed banana. 1/2 banana= 1 egg. Or if you really wanted to, you could use all 6 eggs, but thats a lot of cholesterol...
