It’s Been A While

Howard, this one is for you. :)

Pancake Sunday is back, at least this week.  My early morning breakfast…

A good friend sent me her favorite pancake recipe, and I made it this morning.  It’s easy and delicious.


Chocolate Almond Flaxcakes

Yield: 4 small pancakes


  • 2 TBSP ground flax seeds
  • 3 TBSP almond flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 TBSP cocoa powder
  • sweetener to taste (I used 3 drops liquid vanilla stevia)
  • pinch of salt


  • Heat pancake griddle or skillet over medium-high heat and coat with butter or coconut oil.
  • Whisk together all ingredients.
  • Fry pancakes, flipping after about 90 seconds.


I topped my pancakes with maple syrup and my failed coconut whipped cream.  So many people have told me to try this recipe, and I finally did this morning.  However, my can of full fat coconut milk did not yield much whipped cream.  I followed the directions to a tee, but the cream did not separate to the top.  I refrigerated the can overnight and did not shake it.  Not sure what happened.  Maybe some brands work better than others?  I used 365 brand from Whole Foods.  Any tips?  Oh well, my drizzle of full fat coconut milk was still delicious!
