This recipe is a slightly modified version from my friend Megan Kelly. She has an incredible blog and is a Licensed Esthetician specializing in holistic nutrition, woman’s hormones, and spiritual health.
This is a fun and tasty recipe that is full of fiber, healthy fats and clean protein. It is low carb, ketogenic and helps us to stabilize our blood sugar and burn fat.
If you are following an autoimmune nutrition plan, then you may want to avoid the sunflower seeds and instead use extra coconut flakes. Coconut flakes are a great source of medium chain fats that help us to burn fat and provide immediate fuel for our body and brain. They also provide good fiber for our microbiome.
Stevia is my preferred sweetener because it is one hundred times sweeter than sugar and has no effect on our blood sugar.
You can use a wide variety of protein powders, such as grass-fed whey protein that is full of branched chain amino acids to help support the development of lean body mass. If you are on an autoimmune nutrition plan and are avoiding dairy protein, then I would highly recommend our Gut Healing Protein powder here.
