I have been cravings smoothies like none other this week! Not sure what I am deficient in, but my body is screaming for protein, fruit and icy goodness. So, I went online and ordered these little beauties:
The ingredients in these are phenom! They have all sorts of goodies like alfalfa, wheatgrass, veggies, protein, calcium and sooo much more! I went a little nutso and ordered a bunch to try before committing my $40 to one kind of healthy smoothie mix. This morning, I used the Amazing Meal with Vanilla Chai with my “pumpkin spiced latte” and a half a banana. It was good, but I was not feeling the least bit full, until I had some of my hubby’s pulled pork (terrible combo I know). 3 bites in and I was stuffed! So, they keep you full, you just might not notice it at first.
Anyways, Hubby thought it sounded gross so I made him some DELICIOUS coconut flour pancakes!! I had a bite and they were amazing!!
Fluffy Yummy Coconut Pancakes
(Borrowed from NourishingDays)
Makes 4 1/4 cup pancakes (serves 1- 2)
2 eggs (@ room temp)
1/2 cup almond milk/coconut milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 tablespoon honey (I used 1 packet of Truvia)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup coconut flour
- Preheat griddle over medium-low heat. In a small bowl beat eggs until frothy, about two minutes. Mix in milk, vanilla, and honey or stevia.
- In a medium-sized bowl combine coconut flour, baking soda, and sea salt and whisk together. Stir wet mixture into dry until coconut flour is incorporated.
- Grease pan with butter or coconut oil. Ladle a few tablespoons of batter into pan for each pancake. Spread out slightly with the back of a spoon.
*The pancakes should be 2-3 inches in diameter and fairly thick. Cook for a few minutes on each side, until the tops dry out slightly and the bottoms start to brown. Flip and cook an additional 2-3 minutes.
- Serve hot with butter, coconut oil, honey, syrup, or fruit.
What a great way to start the day! Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!
