I have decided that pancakes are in order, not just on Sundays! I have had pancakes for the past three mornings!
My first set of pancakes was on Saturday:
1/2 cup canned coconut milk
2Tbs. coconut oil
1/2 tsp. vanilla (I never use it because I don’t care for it much)
1/8 tsp. salt
3 Tbs. packed coconut flour
1/8 tsp. baking soda
Warm coconut milk and oil a little if your coconut oil is solid. Then I simply throw everything in the blender and give it a whirl. Easy Peasy! Fry as usual.
I couldn’t find the blog that I originally found this recipe on. It was called Starch Free Recipes, but when I went to look it up, it was not found. So, I figure it’s okay for me to go ahead and share it with you with much thanks to the original blogger!
Heather’s Protein Pancake recipe is here and pretty yummy I might add. I always look forward to seeing what kind of pancake creation she will post each Sunday. This time, she posted (a day early) pancakes with Mole sauce. I had every intention of making the Mole sauce, but I didn’t have any instant coffee. I ended up making Carob Sunbutter sauce. DELISH!!
I basically followed the Mole sauce recipe without the coffee. I added unsweetened almond milk to make it the consistency that I wanted. That looks like a ton of Sunbutter on my pancakes, but it only had 1 TBS. in the sauce–not that I’m worried. It just looks like half a jar of nutbutter there ;)
Today I had:
That isn’t the best picture, but trust me these pancakes were REALLY good! I got the recipe on Diet, Dessert and Dogs. The original recipe called for almond flour, but I don’t do well with too much almond flour or almond butter. I had pecan flour on hand and they turned out great! I just topped these with a little Smart Balance and had eggs on the side. Just a side note here–I used to have this horrendous fear of eggs!! Back in the ED days, I was SO afraid of the fat in them. Now, I am eating them (1 egg + 2 whites) almost every day! LOVE them and they make me feel GREAT :D Anyway, these pancakes had the perfect amount of lemon taste. Next time, I may add poppy seeds and have lemon poppy seed pancakes!
The cool thing about all of these pancakes on this post is that they are ALL sugar free and grain free!! WooHoo!! They fill me up and keep me satisfied for hours!
