Coconut flour pancakes

I was really craving pancakes this morning and decided I would formulate a recipe that takes coconut flour pancakes to another level- fluffy, springy, and light.

I succeeded! Now I just need to figure out how to cook them to keep their surface from getting so dark. Try making them without banana and tell me if that does the trick!

Ingredients:
1/3 banana
2 tbs coconut flour
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp coconut oil
Dash of salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
2-4 tbs almond milk to thin the batter

1. Combine all ingredients in a magic bullet or mash together in a bowl. Add milk as needed to adjust batter consistency.

2. cook about 2 mins per side on a lightly greased griddle or frying pan.

3. Serve with fruit, maple syrup, and cinnamon!

Coconut flour pumpkin mug cake

This recipe is almost sugar detox friendly, but I cheated a little bit with the addition of stevia. Sometimes dessert cravings strike and you just need a little instant gratification without too much guilt. This dessert is perfect for times like that.

Ingredients:
1/4 c pumpkin purée
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp coconut oil
2 tsp honey or 1 packet stevia
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1-2 tbs milk
2 tbs coconut flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
Dash of salt

1. Mix wet ingredients and dry ingredients separately. Combine in a lightly greased mug.

2. Microwave for 90 seconds. Enjoy!

The pumpkin works well in this recipe! It keeps the coconut flour moist. I had my mug cake with a little whipped cream.
