Monday, Labor Day, I'd been looking forward to this day for a few weeks....
On our agenda was to run the "Old Fashion Days" annual 5K. This year I got some of my dear Friends to join me, and we were there running in honor of Craig Porter; the late Brother of Kyle's dear friend Melissa Meek. I finished the 93% humid, hilly run in 31:08. We cheered in the rest of our friends and were off to breakfast. I was super excited as I had publicly proclaimed this as my super cheat meal before starting the Whole Life Challenge in just a couple weeks....which just set myself up for a huge disappointment. Someone forgot to make real homemade pancakes this year. Seriously, who decided to serve up the frozen microwave pancakes. Ugh!!
Moment of growth: any other given day I would have just eaten them b/c they were there. On this day I took a bite, realized they weren't what I wanted, so I stopped and didn't eat another bite of them.
Moving on: I still want my pancakes darn it!! So I made the executive decision we it was a BFD night. Breakfast for Dinner that is.
So here's what I made, served up with mixed fruits, Bacon, sausage, real butter and organic maple syrup!!
1 can full fat coconut milk
1 c. Coconut flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 Tablespoon vanilla
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/8 tsp ginger (I left out)
Honey to taste
Beat eggs, add all the wet Ingredients. In a separate bowl combine all the dry ingredients. Dump the dry into the mixing bowl (hope you are lucky enough to have a kitchenaid mixer). Heat a griddle spread a little coconut oil on it. Spoon two heaping spoonfuls into pan and spread a little thin. Cook a couple minutes and flip.
Optional ingredients are: pumpkin (Mmmmm) or banana instead of the honey.

These were very filling and tasty, I think I kicked my hankering for pancakes ;)
