“I’m running out of ideas for what to eat for breakfast”.
This is the most common thing I hear from people trying to eat a cleaner diet. So what did you eat before? Breakfast cereal? Toast? Waffles? All variations of the same thing, wheat; and 9 times out of 10, you probably wanted something else within an hour of eating them. Not with my pancake though. I can eat it, wait an hour and train like a mad man for another hour after that. Oh and it never leaves me bloated…nicely filled and satisfied but definitely not bloated.
I like it so much I have it for breakfast 6 out of 7 days a week (Okay, I’m a boring fart). I’ve been eating it for over 4 years now (just establishing the fact that I’m a boring fart!) and I’m still not sick of it. I have a fry up on a Sunday. That’s our Sunday treat. We have nitrite/nitrate free bacon, 4 eggs fried in coconut oil, sweet potato hash or fried plantain, spinach and tomatoes but back to the pancake……
1 whole egg
4 egg whites
1 tablespoon of almond meal (almond flour or ground almonds)(you can use coconut flour too but just use 1 tablespoon – I don’t like the texture quite so much!)
1 teaspoon of cinnamon or 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
1 tablespoon of coconut oil for cooking
Beat everything together except for the coconut oil. Heat the coconut oil in a pan and cook your pancake.
I usually go to the gym about an hour after eating this so I add a small chopped banana or a handful of blueberries to mine. I do this before flipping the pancake.
You can also spread on a teaspoon of puréed apple. Remember if you add the fruit, you’re upping the sugar and carbs!
It’s delicious well browned. Gives the banana a caramel taste!
Oh and you can half it, stick it in the fridge and eat half as a snack.
So easy, my 10 year old makes it for me 🙂
What to do with those spare egg yolks……you mustn’t bin them.
To bean or not to bean….that is the question!
Have a good day!
