Keto? No problem!
Another pound down today, yay! I’m truly enjoying trying new recipes that help us feel as though we aren’t being denied all the things we love, furthermore, it helps us stay on point. It simple psychology that we crave the most, the things we are restricted from. I say psychology but really it’s plain old fashioned sin nature…. I want what I want and nothing and nobody will forbid me, also known as rebellion. Nonetheless, we never want a cigarette, cocktail, fat slice of cake, more than in the very moment we decide to give it up. It’s the downfall of just about every healthy change we undertake.
I’m a texture eater and although I lost 20lbs last time, I didn’t really know how to feed us so it very quickly became monotonous and boring. As a result, I pretty much just stopped eating altogether. I missed crunchy and chewy, sweets a given but that was managed by sweet zero everything drinks and sugar free jello. Every once in a while, I’d treat myself to an Adkins snack.
So far, we’ve been able to enjoy pizza, (cauliflower crust) Lo Mein, (with Pasta Zero) Chicken Fried Rice, (with Rice Cauliflower) Lasagna and chicken noodle soup (With Zucchini noodles). But, sometimes you just want pancakes!
I discovered a recipe that I was anxious to try and did so this morning. Now this recipe uses Almond Flour and to be honest, while delicious, the texture was a bit grainy or mealy? You can use Coconut Flour in this recipe instead and next time I will and will let you know which is better.
This recipe made a dozen pancakes! I topped them with real butter and sugar free syrup.
2 C. Almond or coconut flour
1/2 C. Water
1/4 C. Oil
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1 – 2 packets sweetener (optional)
I placed all the ingredients into my blender, blended. Let sit for 3 – 5 minutes, stir if needed then simply pour onto hot griddle or skillet. Ta da!
