Recipe: Low-carb Cinna-Coconut Pancakes


Who doesn’t love pancakes? Pancakes are a traditional breakfast meal because they are fun and easy to eat. The downfall is that they are usually loaded with sugar and white flour that spikes insulin levels and contain low amounts of protein and fiber. Then  you top it off with more sugar like maple syrup. This is a breakfast disaster for anyone trying to stick to healthy diet or fuel their hard training. The solution – my Low-Carb Cinna-Coconut Pancakes! They are high in fiber and protein and low in fat and carbs (7g active). Enjoy!

Ingredients (Makes 3 pancakes):

• ¼ cup raw coconut flour
• 3 egg whites
• ¼ cup almond milk (or any preferred milk)
• 2 packets stevia
• 1 tsp cinnamon
In a medium bowl mix dry ingredients first; coconut flour, cinnamon and stevia. Then add in wet ingredients; almond milk and egg whites. Stir until well combined, since we are not using any oil you may have to mix longer. Spray a non-stick pan with cooking spray and spoon batter mixture onto pan. Use the back of the spoon to flatten the pancake. Pancake is ready when each side is golden brown. (For a healthy alternative top with applesauce or sugar free maple syrup)
