It’s a dreary day here. I really don’t care because I am inside my cozy, coffee nook. I love rainy days. I don’t feel the pressure of going to the park, with the baby, diaper bag, stroller, big girl, joining in on a Supermom play date. I’m all for popping in a DVD and chilling. Also, coffee always tastes better on a dreary, rainy day.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that the A to Z Challenge simultaneously ended with my personal Culinary Desert Journey. About ten years ago I converted to Judaism. My story behind that is for an entirely different coffee chat. However, after ten years of celebrating Passover, I embarking on the journey of making the holiday my own through my passion of healthy cooking.
After our second cup of coffee, I would sheepishly admit that started a Passover cookbook. Each recipe tells a story and culinary goal for the following year. Who new coconut flour was so symbolic? My focus is to create healthy recipes that satisfy my family. My husband “complained” that he enjoyed the grain-free meals! I hope my daughters will look to this book for guidance. It’s nothing fancy. I took one of the big girl’s old composition books and started copying down and literally cutting and pasting recipes. Am I looking to publish it one day? No. I love the idea of a family holiday cookbook. Everything in one place. Every dish made with love, for my loves. Yes, the caffeine is really getting to me now!
My culinary desert journey has me leaning towards adding a food portion to my blog. I am not sure when I will act on it, but I am thinking about adding recipes to my blog. No my caffeine chattiness is on over load!
Here is my pancake recipe:
3 cups almond meal
1/4 cup coconut flour
3 Stevia packets
Sprinkling of cinnamon
1/2 cup full fat Greek Yogurt
1/2 cup nonfat Greek Yogurt
1/2 cup of almond milk
coconut oil for frying
- Beat eggs in small bowl
- In a separate bowl, mix wet ingredients and slowly add eggs
- Mix dry ingredients in a separate bowl
- Pour dry ingredients into wet ingredients and mix
- Put bowl in the fridge for at least an hour for the mixture to thicken
- Take mixture out of fridge
- Put coconut oil in pan and set on medium heat
- Once the oil is melted, start frying up the pancakes
- Scoop out less than a 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake
- Space out the pancakes
- Let cook on both sides for about two minutes (estimated)
How many pancakes does this make? I’m not sure, but I know I made a lot. In fact, we are still eating them!
Serve with yogurt and fruit and any pancake topping you wish!
Thank you for listening. I hope you try my recipe. Maybe next time we can get together over pancakes and coffee? My house or yours?
