Blueberry Pancakes

My recipes are grain free, refined sugar free and most are dairy free. If you are here because you have allergies or are trying to regain your health. Welcome! I have been improving my health. I have more energy and have even been going to the gym 4 – 5 days a week. What an improvement!! It wasn’t that long ago that I was so extremely exhausted. NOT tired exhausted. I would wake up feeling exhausted before my day even began. If you know what I mean I am sorry that you feel that way. It is miserable. Some people won’t understand what you mean when you say that. So to those of you who feel that way “Hang in there.” Hopefully, I can help in some small way. Check out my Facebook page and let me know who you are feeling https://www.facebook.com/larenascorner/

Because of my new found energy I have been going to the gym and taking pool classes. It has also made me hungry and more likely to want to eat breakfast. Before changing my diet I would not be hungry and eat maybe one meal a day. Now I am likely to eat three meals a day. What to do for breakfast? It seems sometimes it’s hard sometimes to come up with something new. I had been craving blueberry pancakes.

Just because you are grain free doesn’t mean that you don’t want to eat pancakes. These pancakes are airy and fluffy. Due to the blueberries, it makes it hard to get them into circles. The combination of the flavored seltzer water (without refined sugar) and the baking soda puff these pancakes up just like regular pancakes.

Enjoy with Lemon Maple Syrup, Old Fashioned Buttermilk Syrup, Old Fashioned Mascarpone Buttermilk Syrup. Or make with Ham and Bacon Quiche and make it a brunch.

Variation: Add a different La Croix flavor and mix it with different fruit.

1/2 cup almond flour

1/2 cup cassava flour

1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/3 monk fruit sugar

2 eggs

1/4 cup La Croix Lime or Key Lime flavor

1/4 cup almond milk

3/4 cup blueberries plus more to decorate with

1 1/2 tablespoon vanilla monk fruit powdered sugar

1 – 2 tablespoons coconut oil

 

In a bowl combine the almond flour, cassava flour, baking powder, baking soda and monk fruit sugar stir until well combined and set aside. Crack and add eggs to a smaller bowl and whisk eggs until well beaten. Add flavored sparkling water, and milk to the beaten eggs. In a separate bowl combine blueberries and powdered monk fruit. Stir around until all the blueberries are coated with powdered sugar. The coated blueberries make it so that they will be dispersed throughout the pancakes. Combine the flour mixture with the egg mixture. Once thoroughly combined fold the blueberries into the batter.

Heat a pan with a teaspoon of coconut oil on medium heat. Allow the pan to heat up. Once hot add about 1/4 cup of pancake batter and pour into pan. Repeat until you have three pancakes. I use about 1/4 cup to 1/3 cup per pancake. Fry until you see bubbles appear on the top side. Gently use a spatula and flip the pancakes. Cook approximately 3 – 5 minutes. Add more pancake batter and cook until all the batter is used up. Makes approximately 10 small pancakes. Add extra blueberries to serving plates.
