I hope everyone enjoyed a spring-tastic weekend!
I know I did! I treated myself to a leisurely brunch on Sunday!
Do you ever pamper yourself with brunch on the weekends?
Well here's a recipe for you to do just that:
Pear Pancakes with Blueberry Syrup!
These little pancakes pack a protein and flavor punch and are wonderfully healthy!
And they're Gluten Free and Specific Carb Diet friendly with a Vega Option!
2 egg whites, beaten to stiff peaks (Vegan option: 2 flax/chia eggs)
1 tsp cinnamon
dash on nutmeg
1 pear, small dice
1/2 cup almond flour
2 "droppers-full" of pure liquid stevia (SCD use 2 tsp honey)
1/2 cup blueberries, pureed
5 drops pure liquid stevia (optional)
Prep your pears and set aside. Also, process your blueberries until they are smooth. You'll need to scrape the sides several times. Next, whip your egg whites and spices to stiff peaks. Once they're at stiff peaks, whisk in your stevia. Finally, gently fold in your almond flour until just incorporated. Scoop 1/4 cup of the batter (without the pears) onto a nonstick skillet that has been sprayed with olive oil. Then, place your pears on top of the pancakes. Cook for 4 minutes, carefully flip, and then cook for 3 minutes more over medium heat. Top the pancakes with the blueberry puree and enjoy!
These. Were. Incredible!! I have such a soft spot for pancakes. They're warm and cozy, sweet and decadently delicious! The pears with the cinnamon and nutmeg were so sweet and spicy. It was warming and just fabulous. And paired with the subtle nutty undertone, and fresh, bright blueberry sauce was outstanding!
And the texture was ethereal! By whipping the egg whites, they become so light and fluffy! You'd think that using almond flour would make them heavy and weighed down, but actually, just the opposite happens! They basically melted in your mouth.
This was such a wonderful way to start out my Sunday. Treat yourself to these Pear Pancakes! You're tummy will be happy all day!
Until next time!
