A New "Pancake" Breakfast

I now have a new breakfast that I am addicted to. And I am happy to report that it is NOT meat and broth nor does it involve anything with meat or broth! However, it is still GAPS Diet friendly!

There isn't even really a name for this and the ingredients are so random that I could only come up with one clever name, "A New Pancake Breakfast." Clever, right?! This recipe is (mostly) in the GAPS Diet Book. However, I have altered it a little bit. It's supposed to be Pancakes (which works perfectly for my psyche because anyone who knows me knows that I could eat 10 big, fluffy pancakes in one sitting if I could - my days prior to GAPS)! This is what it starts out looking like:


Unfortunately, though, this is also what it ends up looking like as well! I have even tried making tiny, little "cakes." That also does not work. Either I am a terrible pancake maker or the ingredients just don't allow for it to truly take pancake-form (which is probably the case because these "pancakes" lack flour).

In any case, the final product tastes fabulous! The final product is basically like a very thick pudding or chunky oatmeal even maybe. The consistency is a little off, but that does not change the wonderful taste. I love it so much that I even have it for dessert sometimes!

I encourage you to try it out! Here's how I do it:

Ingredients (This "batch" will make me about 3-4 servings):
  • 5-6 Zucchini
  • 2 Egg Yolks
  • 1 Tbsp. Raw Nut Butter (Your choice - I have used Almond and Walnut)
  • 1 Banana - extremely Ripened
  • 1 Tbsp. Coconut Oil
  1. Peel and cut up about 5-6 zuchinni.
  2. Put the zucchini in a boiling pot of water and cook until the zucchini is very soft.
  3. Drain the water and transfer the zucchini to a mixing bowl and whip.
  4. Add the 2 Egg Yolks. Continue whipping.
  5. Mash the extremely ripened banana, add to the mixture and whip all 3.
  6. Add the Nut Butter. Stir.
  7. Pour the mixture onto a pan (melt the Coconut Butter on the pan instead of using Pan Spray).
  8. Cook for as long as you'd like. I typically only cook it for 3-5 minutes. 
And that's it! Whatever you don't eat, you can refrigerate and it will taste wonderful cold as well!

Let me know if you try it and how you like it!

Time for some P90X Yoga X.... Cheers!
