Ben and I have tried many an inventive recipe on this slow-carb diet, and on the hunt for inventive rice and flour substitutes, I stumbled across something that wasn't quite low-carb, but it did eliminate the rice and flour. It looked way to good not to try and so we cheated a bit, taking comfort in the fact that it was at least not made of flour, but instead a bunch of fruit and egg. Below is the delectable experiment that was banana, blueberry and toasted coconut pancakes. Enjoy!
Banana, Coconut, and Blueberry No-Flour Pancakes
4 ripe bananas
1/2 c. toasted coconut
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
Dash of vanilla extract
Butter (for frying)
Toast a 1/2 cup of coconut in the oven or in a pan. Watch carefully as it easily burns. Mash bananas with a fork (the pastry cutter seen above didn't work too well) in a medium bowl. Add the coconut and eggs and whip in with a fork, until blended. Stir in the spices and then gently fold in the blueberries. Mixture should be quite runny.
Heat your butter in a skillet and spoon batter (about 2-3 tablespoons) into pan. As the batter is thin and runny be careful that it doesn't spread too much! Cook until they look delicious and cooked through (about 3 minutes + per side) on medium heat. Enjoy with maple syrup.
