Happy 4th of July! I’m sitting on our patio writing this post and can’t believe I’m not sweating my you-know-what off. 70 degrees, sunny, and less than the usual 99% humidity we usually have here around this time of year. I’ll take it!
This morning I decided to get a little creative in the kitchen and whipped up a batch of protein pancakes. I of course had to go with a red, white, and blue theme because…why not? At first bite, Matt thought these were “legit” (his words) pancakes, meaning unhealthy. Much to his surprise, they are actually paleo. I love it when I trick him like that.
Strawberry Coconut Protein Pancakes
(serves 2, makes 5-6 pancakes)
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup pureed strawberries
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 cup crushed walnuts (optional)
- 1 tbsp shredded unsweetened coconut
- toppings of your choice!
Whisk together wet ingredients then add dry ingredients and mix well. Pour batter onto heated griddle/pan using 1/4c measuring cup. Flip when batter starts to bubble and firm up. Add toppings of your choice! Today I used blueberries, honey, coconut and almond butter….and a little syrup. Hey, it’s a holiday.
I hope everyone has a fun and safe holiday!
