Peanut Butter Pumpkin Pie Eggs

This is the fall of orange.

 

My least favorite color to wear, but one of the most delicious.

Unbelievably, my palms aren’t orange.  My whole body will be orange in 3 weeks.  It’s almost competition time!  Food wise, I can’t get enough pumpkin, winter squashes, sweet potatoes, and carrots (many of you understand my addiction).  I eat one of those at almost every meal!  Including breakfast.

The orange pumpkin pie filling mix above was added to eggs.  I mixed together pumpkin puree with spices… and then decided it was missing something.  It tasted too traditional.*

Peanut butter flour!!!

*If you’re into traditional, you can leave the PB out.

Since PB & Peggs is taken, I thought calling it pie was appropriate.  It tasted like pie.  Breakfast pie.

It also earned me some fun looks when I walked into my gym eating it Saturday morning (please note the environmentally friendly mug).  Marvelous, no?

Which brings me to more marvelous – I am working on getting my personal training certification!  Even better, I am doing it though Lee Haney’s IAFS program.  I got to spend 8 hours at the gym learning from him on Saturday.

In case you don’t know Lee Haney, he’s an 8x Mr. Olympia.  This man is legit.  I love his real approach and emphasis on fueling with natural, whole foods.

In case the scramble wasn’t enough pumpkin for you, check out the Peanut Butter Pumpkin Pancakes my #strangebutgood partner in crime, Heather, posted this weekend.

I made them Sunday morning.  My modifications: reduced oats and peanut flour to 2T each, increased egg whites to 1/4 C, and used cottage cheese instead of yogurt.  For syrup, I mixed sugar-free syrup, pumpkin, and cinnamon.

This weekend of pumpkin was beyond marvelous.

Peanut Butter Pumpkin Pie Eggs with Pear

  • 1 T peanut flour (or peanut butter)
  • 1 T unsweetened almond milk

  • 1/4 tsp ginger
  • Pinch of cloves
  • 4-5 drops liquid stevia
  • 1/2 C egg whites

Scramble the eggs until almost done.  Stir in the pumpkin mix and pear, cooking ~1 min to warm through.

Transfer to plate and tops as desired (I used additional pear and almonds).  Enjoy!

I feel like I went 100 miles an hour all weekend, but in a good way.  It’s fun to look up and realize you’re exactly where you want to be.

Are you orange-obsessed?  What’s is your favorite orange food?

What was marvelous about your weekend?

    So awesome that you are getting your personal training certification!!! Isn’t it amazing how quickly the time flies when you are learning about and doing something that you love? I’m so excited for you and where this will take you!

    Oh that is so my kind of breakfast. I need peanut Flour, seriously!
    I just roasted 2 HUGE kabocha squashes and I have a butternut squash waiting to be roasted. It’s becoming an issue, I mean can eating too much kabocha be unhealthy, maybe? I hope not.
    Yay for Personal Training! That is SO cool, really.

  3. says

    I think you are well aware of my orange addiction! Pumpkin is my original love, but kabocha is my new partner in crime! I am definitely working on my winter tan. I have no idea how your palms and feet are not orange? I spent the weekend with my younger men while Tony was in NY. It was a quiet weekend and I enjoyed the slow pace for a change. I hope you have a great week!

    Oooohhh just you wait, lol, with time your hands will turn orange. It’s like a natural way of using self-tanner, but only for your hands and feet :)

    I think that the best orange food is baby carrots. Pumpkin comes in at a close second, but I just frickin love eating carrots all day, everyday.

    Actually, the other day, when I was munching on carrots, and realized I had no hummus or anything else to dip them in. I walked over to my pantry, and found a can of tomato paste. So yes, I decided to eat carrots and tomato paste…#strangebutgood #collegestudentproblems #whereismyhummus

    (the hashtags were absolutely necessary!) :)

    Have a great day

    As I said on IG – I am so jealous of you & Lee Haney from my time when I read all the men’s mags too! :) How exciting to get your certification thru him – you are a busy lady!

    OK – I need to get PB flour – all the cool recipes here & elsewhere have it! :) This recipe looks amazing & what to make Heather’s too but I have your modifications saved! :)

    My post shoes my nice weekend!

    Orange looks kinda decent on me. :)

    I, too, love orange foods…sweet potatoes, carrots, and pumpkin all regularly grace my plate. Have you noticed your skin is more yellow/orange than most? Mine certainly is! It isn’t all that noticeable until I compare my palms side by side with a “normal” person. I’ve even had people ask if I use self-tanner. To this, I laugh in their faces because I’m blatantly fair-skinned. Haha

  7. says

    congrats on going for your certification! that was the program I was looking at last fall when I was contemplating doing it. If you want a faraway trainee, I’m totally game.

  8. says

    Congratulations on getting your certification! You will be so amazing at this. I do something almost identical to your peanut butter pumpkin pie eggs all the time, except I’ve never used Asian pears – I usually go with berries, regular pears, etc. And I usually make it when I have an almost-empty PB or AB jar and dump it in there, rather than scrambling in peanut flour. I love your version!

    • Laura says

      Parita, thank you SO much!!! That means a ton coming from you – I’m always inspired by your attitude/outlook.

  9. says

    I know what I’m going to try to make for breakfast tomorrow!! I love all things pumpkin, squash and peanut butter :). I love adding pumpkin to my oats but have never done it with just eggs before. Yay for working on a personal trainer certification, I already love the workouts you post!

  10. says

    Totally going to make this, but use a whole egg or two, depending on how feisty I am feeling that morning! And I could not agree with you more. My squash, carrot, and pumpkin addiction is through the roof, but hey at least they are good addictions. ;) PS: Do you ever eat the whole egg or are you just a egg white girl? Happy Monday!

    • Laura says

      I’m feisty all day every day lately! ;)

      Have you SEEN my #yolkporn?! I love the yolks. Runnier, the better. Posted one on IG this morning, actually.

  11. says

    Orange does seem to have some of the best foods. Oranges, squash, pumpkin… What else? Oh I know… carrots, cheetos (Wait, maybe not that last one ;) While delicious, I would definitely pick the others first :) ).

    8x Mr. Olympia? You were in the presence of a legend!

  12. says

    I’m excited for you to be competition orange. I can’t believe it’s almost here. Pretty soon, the asparagus will start in earnest. I’m excited for that too because I love me some asparagus.
    Congrats on working towards your personal training certification. It seems like a perfect fit for you.

  13. says

    Congrats on making the decision to go for your personal training certification! You will make an amazing amazing personal trainer! I’m so excited for you!
    I’m so with you on ALL the orange foods being delicious…clothes not so much. I definitely am not an orange fan.

  14. says

    I am SOOOOOOOOO food orange obsessed that my skin color is slightly orange from the amount of beta-carotene I eat!!!!!! Butternut squash, IN MY MOUTHHHHHHHHHH – and if you consider spaghetti squash ORANGE than, that is in my mouth MORE THAN butternut! I have squash parties NIGHTLY!

  15. says

    You’re right…I love this! Peanut flour and pumpkin is seriously one of the best combos! And I’m so happy you made my ‘cakes…even if you did totally change the recipe! Ha! I was actually wondering how you got so many of them! ;) But seriously, thanks for the shout out! I’m kinda feeling like I’ve got my Pancake Queen celebrity status back…you should SEE my stats for Sunday! Love you! :D

    • Laura says

      I didn’t totally change it! Just adjusted some things. I would have used Greek, but I’d run out. :)

      You SHOULD feel like a pancake queen! I saw the stats just linking back form this post… and you rock.

  16. says

    Oh man, I love the looks of this breakfast. Definitely adding this to my to-make list!

    PS – So cool about getting your personal training certification. I’m in a course to get mine right now too. :)

  17. says

    Let me know how you like the certification course. He was at my competition in August telling people about the certification but I was so busy I did not have time to check it out.

  18. says

    I LOVE the idea of this recipe and am so glad I came across it! What an awesome combo and I can’t wait to try this.

    Also thrilled to see you have such a passion for well being and that you’re working on your certification. Good luck with everything!
