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.
