Chicken Breakfast Patties

I just recently had a Food Sensitivity test done, and guess what is off my list of foods to enjoy? Eggs, dairy, gluten and beans. Now, in full transparency, I was a little bit overwhelmed. Even with my dietetics background, I was struggling to come up with ideas for breakfast.  I had to start getting a bit more creative. Enter: breakfast patties! Did I always used to love eating a big meat patty right away in the morning? NOPE! But I sure do now! Not only because I am feeling fantastic, and healing my gut at the same time. But I am starting my day with protein, which keeps my blood sugars rock solid and my hunger at bay.  Enjoy!

Yields 8 patties


  • 1.5 pounds ground chicken
  • 1 ¼ tsp Celtic or Himalayan sea salt
  • ½ tsp ground sage
  • ½ tsp dried rosemary
  • ½ tsp dried thyme
  • ¼ tsp ginger
  • ¼ Cup coconut flour + 1 Tbs, divided


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. Mix ground chicken with salt, spices and 1 Tbsp coconut flour.

3. Gently press into remaining coconut flour on a plate to lightly coat.

4. Bake for 25 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. They also may be cooked on the stove in a hot skillet with coconut oil.
