Easy Almond Breakfast Bake @RunninSrilankan

When it comes to breakfast, there seem to be those who love it; or, those who hate it, and very few that seem to be indifferent towards it.
Me, I simply adore it!
I wake up looking forward to it! Sometimes, I think my dreams are even filled with Green Smoothie Pancakes!

Most days, I like to spend time making it, and then, spend even more time eating it!
But then there are those days that I revert back to the ease and speed I used to put into breakfast when my daughter was a toddler!

Cinnamon Almond Breakfast Bake @RunninSrilankan

When my daughter was a toddler, she would wake up before even the Roosters did, and run into my room and softly whisper, “mommy are you awake?”…when she didn’t get an answer, she would jump up on my bed and put her little hands on my face and say a little louder “mommy are you awake?”…when there was still no answer, she would proceed to prop my eyelids open with her fingers and yell “mommy are you awake?”
Yeah – those days – breakfast tended to be something I had made a night or two ago, like these Peanut Butter and Date muffins; or, like these Strawberry Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies. Sometimes, I would whip up a quick concoction of ingredients we had on hand and and throw it into the oven while I got ready.

Gluten-Free Cinnamon Almond Breakfast Bake @RunninSrilankan

Recently, my daughter started a weekend job, so, those Saturdays that she works, I try to whip up a quick, healthy concoction of ingredients that I know will keep her full and energized for the hours she spends on her feet.

This super easy Almond Breakfast Bake was one such concoction!
When I received a can of Blue Diamond’s Honey Roasted Cinnamon Almonds, I decided to soak half the almonds in milk – which came in handy the next morning! I threw the soaked almonds, some vanilla, some brown rice flour, some orange zest, an egg and baking powder into a food processor and after a few good whirls, I scooped the mixture into bowls and baked them – 20 minutes later, they were being devoured with some coconut whipped cream and cinnamon!

"she would proceed to prop my eyelids open with her fingers and yell “mommy are you awake?” I use to do this to my older sister when I was really young so I can relate. :) Your almond breakfast bake looks like a high protein, moist delight for breakfast!

This looks good! I'm horrible about cooking breakfast - the boys like quick things that aren't very heavy and all 4 of us eat at different times every morning (I don't usually eat breakfast because it is the way everyone eases into the morning.

I love breakfast but not first thing. It just doesn't go down and I get frustrated. Mid-morning and I'm in breakfast heaven and would definitely be there with this breakfast bake.

I'm definitely a breakfast lover! I swear that the promise of breakfast is one of the main reasons I jump out of bed ;) And this recipe looks SO good, Shashi! I'm a huge fan of breakfast bakes, and the texture of this one looks absolutely perfect.
