Sometimes I like to hear myself talk....and this morning has been one of those times. I'm pretty sure I said "yum" or some variation of "mmmm" in the double digits while eating these pancakes and giggling like a child.
Moving on to why you are reading this blog. Delicious pancakes that taste like pumpkin pie without being full of sugar and flour.
Paleo Pumpkin Pie Pancakes!!
1/2 C Almond Flour
2 T Coconut flour
2 T Vanilla protein powder
1/2 T Cinammon
1 t Pumpkin pie spice or allspice
1/8 t Salt (pinch)
1/2 C Pumpkin puree
2 T Honey
1/2 t Vanilla
Coconut oil for cooking
Coconut milk (optional-add if batter seems too thick)
1. Heat griddle to medium, grease with coconut oil
2. Whisk together dry ingredients
3. Whisk together wet ingredients and then mix into dry
3. Add splash of milk if needed
4. Pour batter onto griddle and shape into pancake
5. Cook approx 4 minutes, flip and cook 2 minutes or until golden brown
Variations: I have mixed bananas and walnuts into the batter as well as using them as topping. Both are amazing! And if you are a coconut lover, go ahead and sprinkle some on top or in the batter. You really can't go wrong with coconut!
I've had requests to share my typical daily diet and snack/meal ideas, so here goes....
*2-3 eggs scrambled with veggies or over easy over spinach
- on less busy mornings I'll add bacon and potatoes
*PLAIN Greek yogurt - add fruit, nuts, flax seeds, or cinnamon
(oatmeal is also an option if you are non-dairy, but yogurt is my preference)
*Green smoothie - spinach, kale, banana, water, ginger, protein powder
Coffee or green tea - black or with a splash of half&half or coconut oil
Don't forget to drink water!
*Build a salad! Start with spinach, kale, or spring mix and add your favorite veggies, fruit, nuts, and cheese
*My favorite is Spinach, strawberries, almonds or walnuts, feta cheese, and balsamic (even boyfriends, husbands, and kids like it!)
- add chicken, turkey, or fish if you please
*Make extra portions of the dinners below and pack for lunch
Water, water, water
*Salmon, sweet potatoes, steamed broccoli
*Burger with sauteed veggies over salad
*Chicken or beef and veggie kabobs. Bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, zucchini, anything else you like...
Red bell pepper and carrots with hummus
Lara bars (don't go crazy and eat these all the time, but they are great for a sweet tooth attack ;) )
Dark chocolate (aim for at least 60%)
Ice cream (find a brand with minimal ingredients like hagaan dazs chocolate peanut butter)
Homemade sweets made with almond or coconut flour
