Back twice actually- we decided to celebrate my hubbies birthday in Vegas this weekend and get relaxed from our previous vacation. Maybe a completely backwards way of thinking but it really worked for me. Yes I still have cleaning, laundry, grocery shopping, and cooking to do but a night away in a place I didn't have to clean was rewarding enough. Before we left I sat down and made a dinner meal list for four weeks and even worked on separate grocery lists for each week. My plan- simplify, budget, and be healthy. I will keep you informed if there is much success.
I have been waiting a long time to share a great recipe with you all. I did a review awhile back for one of my favorite nourishing blogs. I then waited for her to post the recipe before I did and then... well, I have been absent since. So now I am excited to share- Coconut Flour Pancakes.
If you went and bought the coconut flour to make the bread or lemon poppyseed muffins I have found something else you can use it for and this definitely is on top of the list. We have this weekly and it actually saved me on our getaway this weekend. I was able to throw some in a ziploc bag and have for my little guy to eat as meals or a snack. It is so filling that a little bit can go a long way for the little bellies.
Coconut Flour Pancakes
1 cup of raw milk, coconut milk, or preferred milk
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 T. of honey
1/2 cup coconut flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
Combine liquid and dry in separate bowls. Mix together. Poor on a hot griddle or pan making small pancakes. These tend to burn if cooked too long- I use about a 200-250 heat on my griddle that seems to be perfect.
A tip: Once I pour them on the griddle- usually using a little less then 1/4 cup- I spread them out a bit with the back of the measuring cup or even better my clean finger.
