Breakfast Spa-Cakes

Breakfast Spa-Cakes

Once while on a food detox, I made up this recipe. Now, although I eat clean 90% of the time, I realized how much more limited I was when having to eliminate wheat, and dairy (my extent of eating wheat is pasta, couscous, and sprouted grain bread, and occaisional homemade baked goods; for dairy, all I consume is yogurt and occaisional raw cheese or Parmesan) On a food detox, you eliminate all foods with gluten, added sugars, caffeine, alcohol, dairy, and meat. Forgive me if I forgot anything. Although, the best food detoxes are with raw food only, I feel this occaisional detox also has its place for those that still include some dairy, wheat, and a few more of the above mentioned foods.

These little pancakes are quite filling. Serve with fruit, and you will be satisfied.

Makes 8 small, but hearty pancakes

¼ cup quinoa or quinoa flour

¼ cup brown rice flour

7 almonds

½ teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

____________

3 egg whites

3.5 ounce jar organic sweet potatoes, squash or applesauce (baby food), or ¼ cup leftover mashed vegetable

¼ cup nut milk or rice milk

____________

Pure maple syrup, raw honey, or fruit puree

Fresh fruit such as strawberries, apple slices, papaya slices, or pineapple slices

Put quinoa and almonds into a bullet blender; using a flat blade, mill the quinoa and almonds into flour.

Whisk flours and ground almonds, baking powder, and pie spice into a small bowl. Stir in the egg whites, baby food, and milk.

Put a griddle over medium heat; coat with cooking spray. Spread about a teaspoon of coconut oil over the surface per four pancakes. When a few drops of water sizzle when sprinkled over the surface, the pan is ready.

Using a quarter cup measure, scoop just under ¼ cup batter into a small circle onto hot griddle; repeat for each pancake; cook 1-2 minutes; flip and cook another 30 seconds to 1 minute. Serve with maple syrup and fresh fruit.

Serve with fresh fruit to add to the sweetness to avoid adding too much syrup.
