PANCAKES and Yoga

PANCAKES and Yoga

I thought of more P's! Pumpkin and Pancakes. How could I have forgotten! 

On weekends I like to get my ass in gear with an 8am hot yoga class. I feel super productive after a good sweat. I friggen love hot yoga. Oh but I am awful at it. Like there are people that can balance on one fingertip, upside down and I stand there like whaaaaat despretly trying to touch my toes. 

So after yoga, or after sleeping in, or just all the time, who doesn't want a delicious stack of hot pancakes? And in the case 21 day sugar detox friendly, husband and dog approved pumpkin pancakes.

Ingredients

  • 1 tblsp butter/ghee/coconut oil for frying
  • 1/2 cup mashed pumpkin
  • 1 green tipped banana 
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon 
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp ginger
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tblsp almond butter (smooth)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp coconut or almond milk
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour 
  • Maple syrup OR; 
  • 21 dsd friendly topping: 1 tblsp coconut butter, 1/2 tsp vanilla, 1/4 tsp cinnamon 

Directions 

  1. Mash the banana and mix it with the pumpkin in medium sized bowl
  2. Add in all the spices, including the salt and stir
  3. Stir in the baking soda
  4. Add the almond butter, eggs and milk and stir
  5. Lastly add in the coconut flour and stir
  6. Honestly you could probably skip all these steps and just dump everything in a bowl and stir
  7. Melt butter/ghee/coconut oil in a pan on medium heat
  8. Pancake batter will be thick, so you will have to scoop and spread out the batter in the pan. About 2 tbslps = one good sized pancake 
  9. Cook until golden brown on one size and flip till golden on both sides
  10. Delicious served with butter and syrup or almond butter or coconut butter. So many options. 
  11. If you want the coconut butter topping, gently melt the coconut butter and stir and vanilla and cinnamon and put a nice generous dollop on top of the pancakes 

I ate my pancakes with coconut butter,  bacon, a hard boiled egg and guac. The paleo pup had hers dipped in egg yolk. Hubby had his with runny eggs, bacon and a bagel (he is not so paleo).
