I’m Alive!!!

Posted on February 15, 2018. Filed under: Breakfast, Uncategorized | Tags: , , , |

Well, mostly. Remember my post last week saying I woke up feeling a little weird? I really wish that’s where it stopped. I actually think I got the flu for the first time since I was a kid. I’m feeling better now, but Thursday to Monday were not fun. Muscle aches, angry stomach, the works. Whenever I’m sick, I tend to not pay attention to diet because I don’t eat enough so anything is good to get calories in.

I started feeling better yesterday. Sure, I’m still a little congested and my energy level is a lot lower than normal, but I don’t feel miserable anymore. (Part of me wants to do something, other part of me just wants to nap)

I had a craving for pancakes (mainly because Hulu has 2 different pancake commercials it was cycling through) and decided to make a breakfast pancake out of the chickpea flour I had. I found a vegan recipe that seemed pretty solid.

The recipe is very easy. It doesn’t have a ton of sweetness in it, however, if you use coconut oil in your pan, the oil will add a sweetness (be careful though, smoke point on coconut oil is lower than most, my apartment is smoky.) To spice them up, I topped them with chopped pecans, pink lady apples and honey.

Vegan Chickpea Flour Pancakes

Here’s what to get from the store:

Chickpea flour
Baking Soda (I used powder, it’s 3x the amount of soda called for)
Coconut Oil
Ground Flax Seeds
Almond Milk
Pancake toppings

Grain Free Vegan Pancakes
(From Health is Happiness)

1 1/2 cups chickpea flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
3 tbsp ground flax seed + 9 tbsp warm water
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups almond milk
coconut oil for cooking

  1.  Combine the ground flax seed in a small bowl with 9 tablespoons of warm water and mix well. Set aside for 10 minutes.
  2.  Combine the flour, cinnamon and nutmeg together in a mixing bowl.
  3. Combine the almond milk, vanilla and flax together. mix well.
  4. Add the wet mixture to the dry and mix well.
  5. Preheat a non-stick pan on medium heat. Add a little coconut oil and spread around the pan.
  6. Add about a 1/4 cup of batter to the pan. Cook for a few minutes on one side, flip and cook a couple more minutes on the other side.
  7. Remove from pan, keep warm on a plate, and repeat until all the batter is done.

I haven’t really gone out and done anything in the past week because I felt so bad. I had planned to get sushi last Saturday after work, but my body had other plans. Since I’m feeling better, I want to go do ….something. I just don’t know what that is. I should probably give myself another day, but who knows. Maybe something interesting will come up.
