Banana Pumpkin Custard (Paleo, Whole30 & Kid-Approved)

Some of you may recall from my blog post, My Pregnant Whole30, that I allowed a few SWYPO (Sex With Your Pants On) options during my September Whole30. I made this conscious decision based on the amount of hormonal cravings I was experiencing.  At the time, I was struggling with either ending my Whole30 (and diving face first into a plate of doughnuts) or continuing on with a dish that had a touch of natural sweetness to overcome those cravings.  This is the dish (and choice) I made….

This custard is technically Whole30 compliant, but I can see how some people may abuse this dish, eat it all in one sitting and not even think twice as it’s labeled, “Whole30.”  Since I had the tools I have learned over several Whole30’s, I knew that I just needed a bite or two to tame those cravings and back in the fridge it went.  I am not advocating for you to make this on your Whole30, but if you struggled like I did, it may do more good than bad.  You are an adult, you can make the right choice for your journey.

Back to the custard.  It was originally labeled as a “breakfast casserole” perhaps because it has eggs in it, but I’m not sure I would eat this for meal 1.  If you want to, great, I’ve added collagen protein into the recipe and there is a good amount of healthy fat.  I bet this would taste really good with a side of bacon! The entire family loved this dish.
