Ingredients:

  • Homemade Bread Loaf (Prep Day):
    • 2 cups almond flour
    • 2/3 cup arrowroot flour
    • 2 tablespoons flax meal
    • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted, plus more to grease the loaf pan
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup

1 teaspoon ghee, for greasing

  • 4 eggs
  • Sprinkle sea salt and pepper
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 slices homemade bread
  • 2-3 tablespoons hummus

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350º F and prepare a 5 x 9 bread-loaf pan by very lightly greasing it using a paper towel and small amount of melted coconut oil.
  2. Combine the dry ingredients together in one bowl and whisk the wet ingredients together in another bowl.
  3. Combine both wet and dry ingredients together and pour into loaf tin.
  4. Bake for 30 - 40 minutes or until golden brown on top and cooked through. To test, insert a toothpick into the center of the loaf. The bread is ready when the toothpick comes out clean.
  5. Remove from oven and let cool for 20 minutes. Carefully remove from loaf pan by flipping it upside down on a countertop. Lift up and allow your loaf to slide out. Flip loaf right side up and allow to cool completely on a wire rack.

Hummus, Egg, & Cheese Melt (Days 2 and 4):

     

    Ingredients:

    • 1 teaspoon ghee, for greasing
    • 4 eggs
    • Sprinkle sea salt and pepper
    • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
    • 4 slices homemade bread
    • 2-3 tablespoons hummus

    Directions:

    1. Fry eggs by heating a nonstick skillet over medium heat (grease lightly with ghee if not using a nonstick). Gently crack eggs into skillet, sprinkle lightly with sea salt and pepper, and cook until the whites are solid and the yolk is to your preference, 3-6 minutes. During the last 30 seconds of cooking, top eggs with cheddar cheese until melted.
    2. While eggs are frying, toast your bread in a toaster or on the stove top. If using the stove top, heat a skillet over medium heat. Add bread and cook until starting to brown on one side. Flip and lightly brown the other side.
    3. Plate 2 slices of bread side by side on each of two serving plates. Spoon on a thin layer of hummus to each slice of bread, about ½ tablespoon for each slice.
    4. Top each serving with 2 fried eggs and enjoy.
