Mixed Berry Frittata

I was thinking about making this all week.  Every night I went to bed thinking, tomorrow, you have to try this out.  Well, I finally did, and it was good enough that I needed to share the recipe with you.  I’ve been pretty into frittatas recently, craving the savory variety when I want something easy and filling.  You can add so many different things to one and make it your own that the possibilities are pretty much endless.  This time around I decided trying a sweeter spin on this dish by making a mixed berry breakfast frittata.  At first the words berry and frittata might seem odd together, but trust me you have to give this one a try when you want something just a little sweet for breakfast but still super healthy.  As this is mainly egg based you are getting a great source of protein, plus it is sweetened with only a bit of maple syrup, so it is lower in sugar and has no refined sugars.

On another note, I have also been looking for other ways to incorporate probiotics into my diet (other than my fav kombucha and other fermented foods . . . variety is the spice of life, or so they say) and found LiveKuna, a brand offering some organic products that include probiotics.  I added some of their chia + probiotics to this recipe for some extra health benefits.  You can make this recipe without this ingredient with no effect on the end product, however, if you’re looking for a way to sneak some probiotics into your meal I would suggest adding a little of this ingredient, which you can also sprinkle in smoothies and more.  You can find out more about LiveKuna Organic Chia + Probiotics here.

You can make this to share or save leftovers to reheat for breakfast throughout the week.  Either way I’m sure you’ll love it! xo Sav

Ingredients
  1. 5 eggs (2 whole eggs, 3 egg whites only)
  2. 1/3 cup rolled oats (can use gluten free)
  3. 1/4 cup plain yogurt (I use goat yogurt)
  4. 1/4 tsp baking powder
  5. 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  6. 2 dashes cinnamon
  7. 1 tsp vanilla extract
  8. 1 cup mixed berries (if frozen rinse in cold water to thaw slightly)
  9. 1 tsp LiveKuna Organic Milled Chia + Probiotics (optional)
  10. Pinch of salt
  11. 1 tsp Ghee
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, maple syrup, yogurt, oats, baking powder, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and salt (plus chia if using).
  3. Heat ghee in a small cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add berries in even layer and cook approximately 1 minute, do not stir.
  4. Pour in egg mixture and reduce to medium-low heat. Cook on the stove top for 2-3 minutes until the edges start to set.
  5. Turn of the burner and place skillet on the top oven rack. Bake for 20-25 minutes until set.
  6. Remove from oven and let cool 1-2 minutes before serving.
Notes
  1. Tip: When pouring egg mixture into the skillet pour from the middle and let the mixture spread out on its own to ensure even distribution.
  2. As always, use organic ingredients where you can.
