Banana Split Brownie Pizza

Serves 12

Ingredients:

1 package gluten-free brownie mix, or your favorite homemade recipe

8 ounces cream cheese

1 small can crushed pineapple, drained, juice reserved

1-2 tablespoons sweetener (sugar, agave, maple syrup, honey)

2 bananas, sliced

1 cup strawberries, sliced

1/2 cup nuts, chopped (I used peanuts)

chocolate syrup for drizzling

freshly whipped cream and chocolate shavings for topping

Directions:

Grease a 15-inch pizza pan.
Prepare the brownie mix according to package directions. Spread into the prepared pan. Bake for 20 minutes, or until done. Remove from the oven and cool completely on a wire rack.
Beat the cream cheese, pineapple, and sweetener together in a bowl. Use the reserved pineapple juice, if needed, to soften the mixture to a good spreading consistency. Spread the mixture over the cooled brownie crust.
Arrange the banana and strawberry slices over the cream cheese mixture. Sprinkle with the chopped nuts and drizzle with chocolate syrup.
Refrigerate until ready to serve.
To serve, slice as you would a pizza, add a dollop of fresh whipped cream and sprinkle with chocolate shavings.
Enjoy!
***If you are not serving the entire pizza right away toss the banana slices in a little lemon juice to prevent browning…OR…add the bananas to the dessert individually when ready to serve.***

Stuffed Ricotta Omelet with Fresh Berries

Peanut Butter Stuffed French Toast has long been one of my favorite comfort food breakfasts.  Since going grain and legume free that breakfast treat has been off the menu…until now.  The recipe I’m sharing includes my favorite fillings and toppings but, of course, the options are endless…so substitute your favorites.  This recipe also includes dairy but would probably work with substituting coconut milk for the ricotta, although I haven’t tried it.

My new comfort food breakfast…or dessert.
This is a pic of my dad’s birthday breakfast so for an extra treat
I added a few dark chocolate chips to the omelet before flipping it! Oh my…

Sweet Ricotta Omelet (Serves 1)

2 eggs

2 Tbsp. ricotta cheese

1/4 tsp vanilla

1/4 tsp cinnamon

8 drops liquid stevia (1 Tbsp. sweetener of your choice)

1/16 tsp. baking soda

Filling:

1-2 Tbsp. almond butter

1/2 banana, sliced

Topping:

1/2 cup berries

1 Tbsp. maple syrup

fresh whipped cream

Directions:

Heat a lightly greased 8″ omelet pan over medium heat. Whisk together eggs, ricotta, vanilla, cinnamon, stevia and baking soda until smooth.  Place berries in a small bowl, heat maple syrup (I microwave it for about 15 seconds) and then pour it over the berries and set aside.  Pour egg mixture into the omelet pan and cook until the eggs are almost set.  Turn off the heat, carefully flip omelet and leave in the pan until cooked through (only about one minute or so more).  Slide omelet onto a plate, spread almond butter on one half of the omelet and top with sliced banana, fold the other side over.  Pour berries and maple syrup over the folded omelet and top with fresh whipped cream.  Enjoy!
