Coconut Pancakes

Serves: 1

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you had an amazing week and have something fun planned for your weekend! I know I will be having a blast in Boston at the Healthy Living Summit with a great group of FitFluential Ambassadors and healthy bloggers! Today the official fun begins! We will start out with a guest speaker at 2:30pm, then have time to mingle and open blog with the other HLS-ers! Tonight we will be enjoying a cocktail and dance party! Can you say fun?!! We will have lots of guest speakers, workouts, great food and fun all weekend! Sunday we will end the weekend with a 5k fun run/walk and brunch! Throughout the weekend I will be posting pictures and updates via instagram and twitter! So, if you’re not following me, grab your phone and do it now! You’re not going to want to miss these pictures!

This is my first HLS and I am really excited to learn more about the blogging world and meet some life long friends! There is definitely nothing better than bonding with other people who are just as passionate about health, exercise and nutrition as I am!! Don’t worry, I will be sure to do a detailed update with pics of the weekend, yummy eats and more at the beginning of next week!! Maybe those pictures will convince you to come join us next year! πŸ˜‰

Fit Ingredients

  • 2tbs (14g) coconut flour
  • 2 tbs (15g) vanilla protein powder
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg white
  • 2 tbs coconut milk
  • 2 tsp stevia
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • flaked coconut for decoration (and additional yummy flavor), optional

 

Directions

Spray a skillet with non stick spray. Heat the pan over medium heat. Depending on the size of your pan, drop 2-3 pancakes into the pan (each pancake should use about 2 1/2tbs batter). Cook 2-3 minutes and then flip. Cook an additional 2-3 minutes. Repeat in 2 1/2tbs increments until all batter is gone. (You should get about 4-5 small pancakes). Serve warm with topping of choice!!

Some topping options:

  • pure maple syrup
  • greek yogurt
  • whipped ricotta
  • shredded coconut
  • fresh fruit
  • peanut butter
    /nut butter
  • jam
  • casein protein frosting

These pancakes were absolutely delicious!! They had such an amazing coconut flavor!! And the addition of shredded coconut on top made it out of this world!! I also topped mine with some ricotta that was sweetened with stevia and vanilla extract. I ate these 3 times this week!! If that doesn’t say they are delicious, I don’t know what does!! πŸ™‚
