Paleo Apple + Cherry Frittata

I’m under the guise that people fall into one of two categories… Sweet Breakfast people or Savory Breakfast people. Isn’t it usually one or the other for the most part? Like when you go out to breakfast, there’s the person that gets the french toast or the person that gets the eggs benne. For the most part. Maybe it’s more of a venn diagram though, a few people can go both ways. If I was a better graphic designer I might be able to create that image for you. But I’m not, so you’ll just have to use your imagination. 😉

Holy moly this is amazing! Apple + Cherry Frittata from the Whole Smiths. Perfect for breakfast. Paleo-friendly, gluten-free, vegetarian. MUST Pin!

ANYWAYS! I used to be that sweet person at breakfast. I loved any and every sweet breakfast item out there. French toast (obvi), waffles, muffins, Svenhard’s cheese danishes (gross and oddly delicious at the same time) and on and on. But since I’ve changed up my diet to be more paleo-based, those breakfast items have disappeared and savory dishes have become my go-to. And I love it! But I do find myself craving something sweet but not heavy and carb-y still. That’s when I decided to go for the sweet frittata. I don’t think people realize how good eggs can be when they’re sweetened up, they’re quite delightful I tell ya! So I naturally added some fruit and presto, I had myself a nice lightly sweetened (let’s be real here, it’s no Krispy Kreme) breakfast and the kids loooove it.

I can usually pull leftovers out of this if I serve it with a smoothie or something. And if you’re looking to make this Whole30, make sure to use coconut oil and bypass the honey.

I hope you like it as much as we do!

  2. I would like to make this in a Whole30 compliant version. Above it says, “if you’re looking to make this Whole30, make sure to use coconut oil and bypass the honey” but I don’t see any honey in the recipe. Is the coconut oil in place of the coconut sugar? And, is vanilla compliant? Thanks for clarifying.

    1. Ok so to make it Whole30 you will want to make sure to use coconut oil instead of butter. You can see in the ingredients that you have either option, stick with the coconut oil as that’s compliant! Ad far as the honey / coconut sugar mix up, when I updated my website some of the old revisions of recipes populated. I used to make it with coconut sugar but found honey is even better. I update it to show honey now. BUT if you are doing a Whole30 leave that out all together. Make sense?
