This morning’s breakfast was totally bizarre, but totally delicious. Are you ready???

Almond Flour Chia Seed Pancakes

Ingredients:

1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk

15 grams chia seeds (about 1 1/2 TBSP)

1/4 cup blanched almond flour

sweetener to taste (optional)

1/8 tsp baking soda

1/8 tsp baking powder

a ton of cinnamon

water to thin

3 whipped egg whites (omit if you are of vegan persuasion :) )

Directions:

Blend all ingredients except water and egg whites. I used my Magic Bullet, but any blender will do. By the way, the Magic Bullet’s blade is much easier to lick than the Vita-Mix’s…Please don’t lick your blade, cut your tongue and sue me, K? Allow the blended chia seeds to gel for about 15 minutes, and then blend in a little water to thin the batter (about 1/4 cup?). Slowly fold whipped egg whites into batter for pimpage factor...

Proceed to cook your pancakes, AKA chia meringues on a coconut oil greased griddle or skillet. While they cook, amuse yourself by trying to pick out the pancake that most resembles a penis…

Place pancakes on large platter (I made 10) and cover in avocado sauce (1/2 avocado, 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk, and stevia blended in the Magic Bullet).

This was soo good, but very egg whitey. I think it would have worked better with some protein powder which I omitted since so many of you don’t have access to Jay’s bod rice. 😉 OK, that’s a lie…honestly, I was trying to keep the calorie count under 500. I’m also shifting my focus from protein to fat. However, more about that in another post. I did calculate this morning stats for anyone interested (includes avocado sauce)…
