Morning Pastries Don’t Have to be Unhealthy

Happy Saturday!  I love having morning pastries, especially on the weekends.  I don’t go out very often and buy them, but I do bake my own on a monthly basis.  They are so homey, warm, and delicious to pair with breakfast.  The trick is to have a small portion and not make it your WHOLE breakfast.

Pair with breakfast eggs, nuts, plain yogurt, cottage cheese, oatmeal, a smoothie and so much more!  The other trick I like doing is spreading the pastries with healthy toppings like natural peanut butter, low fat cream cheese, fresh berries, etc.

In my pastry recipes, I tend to use unsalted butter or vegan butter, whole wheat pastry flour, nuts and seeds, dried fruit, and buttermilk or milk alternatives.  Usually when a recipe calls for sour cream or heavy cream, I use plain Greek yogurt because of its thickness, protein, low fat content, and probiotics.  All the recipes are simple enough to make vegan or gluten free.
