The Hulk Flourless Pancakes
These pancakes are as healthy as a salad! They are bright green inside and packed with detoxifying B vitamins. Spirulina is optional, but note that it contains all the essential amino acids, which assist the liver with detoxification and is 55 to 70 percent protein — ounce for ounce, spirulina contains 12 times the digestible protein of beef.
Coconut is naturally antifungal and helps to balance your digestive flora. These pancakes can be whipped together quickly and are a perfect high-protein weekend treat.
3 large organic eggs
1/3 cup organic coconut milk
2 Tbsp coconut nectar
1 Tbsp pure vanilla extract
1 tsp raw apple cider vinegar
1 cup almond flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp pink rock or gray sea salt 2 cups baby spinach
1 Tbsp coconut oil (for coating the skillet)
1 tsp Hawaiian spirulina powder
Blueberry sauce (optional)
2 cups wild blueberries, fresh or frozen
2 Tbsp coconut nectar
- Place the eggs, coconut milk, coconut nectar, vanilla and vinegar in a blender (preferably a high-powered one). Then add the almond flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt, and spirulina powder if using.
- Blend on medium speed for 30 seconds, until well combined.
- Use a spatula to scrape down the sides of the blender. Add the spinach, and blend on high speed until the spinach leaves are completely incorporated and the batter is smooth. Set aside.
- Make the blueberry sauce, if desired. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the blueberries and coconut nectar and cook, stirring frequently as the berries heat up and start to break down. Using the backside of a spoon, gently squash some of the blueberries. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until the sauce has become syruplike, with a few berries still intact. Remove from the heat and set aside.
- Heat a skillet or griddle on medium- high, and coat with coconut oil. Spoon the batter onto the skillet, keeping your pancakes approximately 3 inches in diameter. (They’re much easier to flip when small.) Let cook for 2 to 3 minutes on one side, then flip and cook for an additional 1 to 2 minutes.
- Serve immediately, with the blueberry sauce if you made it.
Makes 9 pancakes.
