This morning’s breakfast was totally bizarre, but totally delicious. Are you ready???
Almond Flour Chia Seed Pancakes
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 🙂 )
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…
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)…
