Pancakes, Pampering and Purging

Day 301 in my preparing to party with Mickey

My plan today was to try out a new recipe while Emi (my daughter) is here.  (Yay!  Emi is here!)  For breakfast this morning we had Coconut Pancakes.  I got the recipe off of the internet a few months back, and I have been procrastinating preparing it.  Emi being here was just the impetus I needed.  I wish I had written down the source of the recipe, because I can’t find it now.  So with my apologies to the original creator (if you know, please tell me so I can give credit where credit is due) here is my new favorite recipe:

Coconut Pancakes:

  1. Ingredients:
  2. 2 eggs, whisked
  3. 1 3/4 c. coconut milk
  4. 2 T. coconut oil (or butter) melted, plus extra for frying
  5. 1/2 c. coconut flour
  6. 3/4 c. buckwheat flour
  7. 3 t. baking powder
  8. 1/2 t. salt
  9. 1/2 c. unsweetened shredded coconut
  1. Directions:
  2. Combine, eggs, coconut milk and 2 T. melted coconut oil (or butter)
  3. Stir in remaining ingredients.
  4. Melt a generous dollop of coconut oil or butter in a pan over medium-low heat.
  5. Pour in some batter.
  6. Fry, when surface starts to bubble, flip
  7. Makes 4-6 large pancakes or 8-12 small
  8. Serve with melted coconut oil or butter and/or sweetener, if desired.  (We didn’t add a thing and they were delicious!)

We stuck to the recipe, except I only had unbleached flour, so that is what we used–1/2 c. +3/4 c.  I will try the coconut flour and the buckwheat flour next time.  Enjoy!

Meet you at the Kingdom!

BTW: We treated ourselves to mani-pedis today; then we had lunch with my dear friend Joan.  It was pure pampering.  Then I came home and cleaned out my cookbooks and shoes.  A very cathartic day!  PTL!
