Manic Monday

Two recipes in one day? I’m constantly trying new things, researching, and day dreaming of food.. So this blog will be filled in no time with tasty, healthy (and maybe a few dirty little cheats) and vegetarian recipes!!

For lunch, I was sitting on Pinterest (one of my other little guilty pleasures) searching for the perfect pancake recipe. I want something made for one, low calorie, not full of sugar, and satisfying. Just when I thought I was coming up with another empty search.. I found it. Heaven on a plate, like little clouds they floated onto my plate.

Only 145 calories for the entire recipe (minus the toppings I added) no sugar added, gluten free.. All words that pop off a page to me!
The recipe is as follows:

Dry
-1/4 cup coconut flour
-1/2 teaspoon baking powder
-1/8th of a teaspoon cinnamon
-1/8th of a teaspoon salt

Wet
-2 egg whites
-1/2 cup almond milk
-A few drops liquid vanilla stevia

Mix dry, then fold in wet. Spoon into frying pan at medium heat, flipping once golden brown.
Boooom, done!

Fluffy little clouds, look at them!!!
Coconut flour needs quite a bit more liquid than usual recipes-so stick with 1/2 cup. Don’t try to do less (or more). This is literally the perfect batter ratio, and resulted in super light pancakes- too little almond milk would mean very dense little scones, and too much would probably just bubble and burn. It’s a very finicky flour.

The topping was just coconut flakes, 1/2 cup 0%greek yogurt, stevia, and a teaspoon of almond butter whisked together. 😊
So simple, but so delicious. Enjoy!
