KETO Coconut Flour Pancakes

These grain free pancakes are delicious with a slight hint of coconut. 


With the Covid-19 pandemic I have been out of work since the middle of March. As a high school cafeteria lady, I was already due to be off all summer.  However,  I didn't plan on being off for an extra 3 months. At first I was glad to be off, because we were moving in April, but now I'm just bored. With boredom came the senseless eating. With senseless eating came weight gain. I'm no longer on my feet for 8-9 hrs per day. So about 3 weeks ago, I decided to finally take control,  start working out at home and changing my eating habits.  Cutting carbs is one way I'm trying to awaken my metabolism. I decided to try using coconut flour and almond flour, instead of wheat flour. 

I did a bit of research about coconut flour and found out that it takes longer for it to absorb liquids and it needs more liquid than wheat flour. Eggs are also your friend when working with coconut flour. They act as the main binder,  so you will be using more eggs, than you would using wheat flour. You need to let the batter sit as well, when using coconut flour. This will help flour absorb some of the liquid and soften up. A few recipes I read suggested letting the batter rest before adding liquids, so your batter won't be thin. Armed with my new knowledge I did a bit of experimenting on my own. These pancakes are very fragile.  You have to watch them closely,  so they don't over cook and dry out. I suggest making a test pancake, to gauge griddle temperature and cook time.


KETO Coconut Flour Pancakes 

4 eggs
1/4 C vanilla almond milk or heavy cream
3 Tbs avocado oil or coconut oil 
1 TBS maple syrup
1/3 C coconut flour 
1/3 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp fine sea salt

In a mixing bowl, whisk the eggs with the almond milk, oil and maple syrup until well combined. Add the coconut flour, baking powder and salt, whisking until all lumps have disappeared.  Let rest 5-10 minutes.

Preheat a griddle to medium low heat.  Pour 1/4 C amounts of batter onto the preheated griddle. Cook until bubbles form on top of the pancake; about 1 minute. Using a large spatula, carefully flip the pancakes. They are very fragile! Cook for another minute; until golden on 2nd side. Top with butter and your favourite low carb syrup; such as monk fruit syrup (monk fruit activates similar sweet taste buds on your tongue as refined sugar. For that reason I prefer it to stevia or xylitol).

I originally saw this recipe on Pinterest (via Six Sister's Stuff) and it had my tummy rumbling so hard, that I knew I had to make it. I had chicken in the freezer, so decided to make this chicken on a day where I would be at school all day. Nothing like walking into the most amazing smell, when you get home from a busy day of work! 
I love that this recipe is so simple, yet it is out of this world delicious. Sweet and savory combine, to coat this tender chicken. It literally fell apart as I tried to remove it from the crock pot. Once tossed with the thickened glaze, I served it with cooked rice/fried rice and some fresh snap peas. It was an amazingly fantastic crock pot meal, that I will be making again and again.

Bacon-Mozzarella Accordion Garlic Bread

A fresh baguette is stuffed with bacon, cheese and garlic butter, for an addictive appetizer.



When we used to go out to eat, if it is on the menu, we would order a bruschetta type accordion bread. I thought I could make an awesome garlic bread, using the same concept, but adding ingredients that we totally love. We often like to top leftover garlic bread with mozzarella cheese, to make it seem new again, so I wanted to incorporate that between the garlicky slices or baguette. And we all know how AWESOME bacon is right??





This is a super simple, yet deliciously impressive appetizer. I'm sure your guests would all Oooh and Ahhh over the ooey gooey bread with bacon. They would be totally CRAZY if they didn't!! The kids really loved this too. The inside was soft and garlicky, full of cheese, bacon and nice fresh green onion. The outside was crispy and buttery.

8 Ways to Have a Fun and Delicious Halloween at Home

Wondering how to spend Halloween this year, due to the pandemic? Well I have 8 fun and delicious ways to make an at home Halloween, tons of fun!



2020 has been turned upside down. My kids have not seen friends, or the inside of a school since March. While we do have our social bubble, this bubble consists of family and a few select friends. Being someone who could be vulnerable during these crazy times, I have been trying to make every day life as normal as possible. With Halloween fast approaching, I have been thinking of how to make sure my children have a super fun day, but not put our bubble at risk. It would be much easier if my health was 100%, but we will make the best of our Halloween at home.
