Remember that Paleo versions of standard baked goods are often very high in calories!
But I wanted to experiment this morning (Chris and Koda are on a hike I didn't want to go on), so --
I've been seeing recipes floating around the Internet for two or three ingredient pancakes. The simple ingredient pancakes are often oats, eggs, and bananas. The Paleo version of this is just eggs and bananas. I didn't want to just eat eggs and bananas, as I thought it might result in a strange texture or taste. I tried coconut flour in place of oats in the three ingredient pancake!
1 ripe banana
1 heaping tablespoon of coconut flour
1 pinch of baking powder
I blended this all up:
And cooked them on a skillet coated with coconut oil and heated to low-medium:
They do burn easily, so you have to be aware! Before we were Paleo, I have perfected my pancake making, so the signs were easy to read of when to flip them (small bubbles forming on the top).
They came out well (and a huge portion!):
I wanted to show you the texture on the inside, but I forgot until I had eaten almost the whole plate! The texture was really nice, fluffy and not to dense.
I liked the taste, too - definitely banana pancakes! I think this is a treat I can make for me and Chris on holiday mornings with some real maple syrup and bacon and we will feel indulgent, haha. It's nice that the meal is just basically 2 eggs and a banana, which is actually a pretty normal breakfast for us.
Keeping this one in the repertoire, but I prefer easier/more straightforward breakfasts day-to-day (my cottage cheese or a scrambled egg with spinach, etc).
Yesterday was an amazing day, I hiked with the boys, and it was reallllllly lovely out.
We roasted turnips and just ate them as a snack! Tossed wedges in oil, salt, pepper and ginger and roasted at 400° until tender:
And Chris made pulled pork in the crockpot which made for a really lovely dinner with mashed potatoes.
I love cozy days at home with Chris where we spend a lot of time outside with the dog, run errands, hang out together, cook together, and end the day feeling rested and rejuvenated <3
