Paleo Crumpet

I love it! Here, please, have a bite! Errr–no. Thanks.

Friend make Bubs special bun. Recipe title “One Minute Muffin,” but it not muffin. Unless English muffin is intent. This more like crumpet. Paleo crumpet.

One net g carb.

This is the actual thing, split and toasted and buttered. This is not trick photography.

For Bigfoot, Paleo bread not very appetizing because mostly egg. Smell little funny. Bigfoot not able bring self taste. Approach trepidation, exactly opposite child development expert recommend for encourage child try new food. Mrs. Dreamboat made you a special kind of bun! That get Bubs curious. Slice, toast. After toast–look just like Wolferman’s English muffin. Butter. Raspberry jam.

Butter = 0g CHO/1T Jam = 8g CHO.

Six hours later, we pulled the other half out of the bottom of the beach bag

Warning this bun: v. filling. Bubs + full-size adult friend try, not able eat entire bun one meal. Pre-bolus plan for half. (4g for 1/2 T raspberry jam, 1/2g for 1/2 bun. 4.5g CHO—exciting!) Bubs pack other half, take to beach, gobble up even though squashed/ugly. Think so delicious. Bigfoot skeptical because it basically scrambled egg disguised as bun. Maybe gather courage, taste one day.

For recipe, including chocolate cake variation (hurl?), follow link. (Same as above.)

    Bubs really liked it? I want to try it. I have not almond flour recipe – still in the search for a high protein bread/muffin thingy that would satisfy the need fo a muffin and other not-go-for-me things. Maybe I will try it and add a few raisons.

      he didn’t just like it, he LOVED it. before being split and toasted, it was kind of pale and sponge-y looking. like a crumpet but more…glistening? it did not appeal to me at all. the friend who made them for us has a friend who makes the same recipe using only egg whites. they were both raving about them! i woke up kind of queasy this morning and could only eat tea, bananas, and wasabi peas.

    Doubt I could get her to eat this… so fussy… if it’s a new food, won’t even try. She likes scrambled eggs, though. Great recipe; great idea; for kids who don’t eat eggs, great way to disguise. I’m going to try her on it; if she doesn’t eat it, I will. Try one and report… Does it taste like bread? Or egg? Eggy bread?


    • Katy · September 1, 2012

      To me, it looks more like bread than eggs.

        i’m not a lover of eggs…they might be better with just the whites…they are good with butter and cinnamon hot…as soon as they get cold they get too eggy! (to me)

    I still haven’t tasted one myself, and don’t really plan to. It’s enough that my guy will eat it.

    in a completely self-absorbed moment, CBW realizes SHE COULD EAT THESE, that friend: what a DREAM BOAT.


    • Katy · September 1, 2012

      will you tell me if you make it?


    • g · September 1, 2012

      you should make them…you would LOVE them CBW!

    1. We do not have a microwave. I sold it on craigslist in an effort to not melt cheese on things and eat all the things.

    2. Puffins make Zoe low every time she eats them for breakfast.

    did you HEAR…Mrs. Dreamboat BURNT THE NACHOS tonight for dinner! (this may have been due to husband canceling Brick Alley Nacho trip and subliminal?) this post made the night not seem so bad! thank you!

    Wow! That looks incredibly good! I’m going to have to try this one!


    • Katy · September 5, 2012

      It does? It looks good? You would eat it? I am on the hunt for a tiny tiny microwave.


      • Scott K. Johnson · September 5, 2012

        Totally. But I blame it on being in a push lately to broaden my dietary horizons. šŸ™‚
