I am rounding off #RecipeMakeover week with a super fun breakfast idea that will allow you to have your cake and eat it too!

That’s right…we’re essential going to take cake, or pancakes, to a whole new level of awesome.

To help make this fun family breakfast, I’ve partnered up with Barlean’s and 2 of their amazing products; Organic Coconut Oil {Butter Flavored} and Digestive Seed Blend.

Barleans Coconut Oil and Digestive Blend


Here’s the scoop on these two:

Digestive Seed Blend: This organic blend of flax, chia, coconut, pumpkin and quinoa packs a punch by adding Omega-3 fatty acids, dietary fiber, antioxidants, minerals, amino acids and plant-based protein to your diet. You’ll get natural fuel with just 2 Tablespoons sprinkled in your smoothies, oatmeal, yogurt or baked goods and your gut will thank you for it. You can find more out about this RAW power by clicking here.

Barleans Digestive Blend

Butter Flavored Coconut Oil: This oil has become a household staple in our house for a few reasons. First, It’s dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free, non-GMO, organic, Kosher, Vegan and has no trans fat or cholesterol. Secondly, it tastes just like butter with NO coconut flavor at all. Thirdly, coconut oil has so many healthy benefits like healthy heart function to weight management. And last but not least, I can use it as a 1:1 baking substitute in baking, cooking and frying under 375°.

Alright, now that you’ve got the info on these 2 amazing products from Barlean’s, let’s put them to good use!

To start, you’ll need 2 small bowls. In one, we’ll mix all the dry ingredients which include; gluten-free flour, sugar or sugar substitute, baking powder, Barlean’s Digestive Blend, salt and chocolate chips (or any fruit or nut).

In the other bowl we’ll mix the nut milk, vanilla extract and Barlean’s.
