This morning I wanted something filling and warm (I am getting tired of eggs). So I looked around online and found a recipe for pancakes that is healthy, nourishing, AND grain free. I believe these are also Paleo/Primal with these simple ingredients; let me know if I am mistaken! I found the recipe here, changed it slightly and halved it as well.
Fast Grain Free Pancakes for One
In a small bowl, combine:
2 Tbsp coconut flour
1/4 c unsweetened almond milk (I used Silk)
1/4 c egg whites (I used Egg Beaters; you can use whole eggs but that will alter the nutrition stats a bit)
1/4 tsp baking powder
dash of salt, cinnamon, and vanilla
Mix with a whisk, let sit for 30 seconds or so, then whisk again. Pour into a heated nonstick pan (greased with whatever you like: coconut oil, butter, Pam...) and cook for about 6-8 minutes per side on medium heat. I made two pancakes with mine. Serve with any toppings you like (I used Kettle unsweetened almond butter). (Note: the original recipe called for sweetener, but I left it out. If you prefer a sweet pancake I can see where a packet of Splenda or a bit of Stevia or honey would be good in this, or just put some fruit on top if your plan allows it).
Nutrition Stats for this entire recipe (no toppings):
8.3 g protein
8.6 g carbs
2.6 g fat
This made a very filling breakfast with a sausage patty and a cup of French pressed Choffy (brewed cacao beans; I got this at a local trade show!) My entire breakfast (2 pancakes, 1 Tbsp almond butter, 1 sausage patty, cup of Choffy) was only about 280 calories and 13 g carbs.
Hope you enjoy these as much as I did!
