This recipe makes 12-16 6-inch crepes (3-4 people.)

For 1-2 people, divide recipe in half. 

 

INGREDIENTS

For The Crepes: 

1 Cup non-dairy liquid (I used almond milk)  

**Note** you may need more almond milk if the batter is too thick

3 Tablespoons Agave (Can be substituted with maple syrup or any sweetener of your choice)  

1 Cup Gluten-Free Flour (I used GF Oat Flour) 

 1/4 Cup Cacao Magic Superfood Powder (Can be substituted with Unsweetened Cocoa Powder)

1 Teaspoon Baking Powder

1/2 Teaspoon Salt  

 

For the Paleo Caramelized Bananas: 

2 Large Slightly Green Bananas (if they are slightly ripe, that's okay)

3 Tablespoons Coconut Oil

2 Tablespoons CacaoBee Honey OR any honey of your choice 

1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon  

A Pinch Of Salt

 

DIRECTIONS

 For the Crepes:

1.  In a large bowl or a small blender, blend all ingredients together and place batter in the refrigerator and allow to thicken for 5 minutes. The battery should be very liquidy. If it is not, add more liquid and blend. 

2. Once it's ready, heat a small sauce pan and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Poor about 1/4 cup of the batter into the pan and swirl the pan around until the batter makes an evenly coated circle. Let cook for 2 to 3 minutes and flip. Cook the other side for another 1 to 2 minutes. Then place the crepes on a plate while you make your caramelized bananas.

 

For the Paleo caramelized bananas

 1. In a medium sauce pan, turn the heat on low and add the coconut oil and honey. Mix a bit until they are both melted.

2. Slice both bananas in half inch thick pieces. Put the bananas in the pan. Sprinkle the bananas with cinnamon and salt. Wait 3-4 minutes or until the bananas are Caramelized on one side. Then toss the bananas around in the pan until they are all flipped over. Cook again for 3-4 minutes. 

3. Put the banana mixture into each crepe and fold them up. Serve and enjoy!

The Perfect Protein Pancake (dairy-free/gluten-free)

image.jpg

Are you ready for a perfect, healthy, dairy-free, gluten-free breakfast that tastes like you're cheating??  

HERE IT IS!  

These pancakes are so simple to make and so delicious- and perfect for before or after a workout! 

I topped mine with Bananas and Nutella.  

Topping Ideas: 

Berries, Peanut Butter, PB2, Almond Butter, Sugar Free Syrup, Philosophies Cacao Magic, Jelly.. The possibilities are endless! 

This recipe is very forgiving- if you want peanut butter pancakes, add a Tablespoon of peanut butter to the batter. This goes for blueberries (add 1/4 Cup after blending) or any other mix-in! The batter will not change. Just don't forget to let it sit for a few minutes before you cook it.  

INGREDIENTS

1 Ripe Banana, Mashed

1 Egg OR 2 Egg Whites  

1/2 Cup Gluten Free Oat Flour (or plain gluten-free flour)

1 Teaspoon-1 Tablespoon Protein Powder (I Used 1 Teaspoon Philosophies Cacao Magic Vegan Protein) (OPTIONAL)

1 Tablespoon Vanilla Unsweetend Almond Milk  (or Greek yogurt if you like dairy)

1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda  

1/4 Teaspoon Salt  

 

DIRECTIONS

1. Blend all ingredients in a small blender or in a small bowl with a whisk until smooth. (I used my Nutribullet) 

2. LET BATTER SIT FOR AT LEAST 3 MINUTES! This step is very important!! If you pour the batter too fast, it will be runny and the pancakes will be thin. Letting it sit will allow the flour to absorb the liquid- thicker pancakes.  

3. While waiting, preheat your pan and spray with a non stick cooking spray. Pour 1/4 Cup -1/3 Cup of batter on the hot pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until edges look cooked. FLIP!

4. Cook for another 2 minutes on other side. Remove from pan and top with whatever you'd like. ENJOY!

Gluten Free Toasted Coconut Banana Nutella Muffins

It's the weekend!!! What better way to start off your Friday than with these delicious muffins?!  

I'll eat any treat with Banana and it and anything with Coconut in it so I thought... Why not try them together? THEN I had the mind-blowing idea that Nutella would be the perfect addition to this because... Well, Nutella makes everything better. 

So basically these muffins are taken from my Banana Bread Recipe which is the BEST EVER and then I added coconut to the mix. The coconut is great because it's not overpowering and when the top gets toasted, it's the perfect mix of crispy and sweet.   

Try them for yourself!! I have a feeling you'll love them!

INGREDIENTS:

2 Large Ripe Bananas

2 Large Eggs, Room Temperature

1 Cup Granulated Sugar

1/3 Cup Canola Oil

1/2 Cup Unsweetened Apple Sauce

1 Teaspoon Coconut Extract

1+1/2 Cups Gluten Free Flour  

1 Tsp Baking Soda

1 Tsp Ground Cinnamon

1/2 Tsp Salt

3/4 Cup Sweetened Finely Shredded Coconut Plus More For Sprinkling On The Tops Of The Muffins

1 Jar Nutella

 

DIRECTIONS

1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a muffin tin with Individual muffin/cupcake liners (or you can just spray the muffin tin with a non-stick cooking spray) and set aside. 

2. In a stand mixer or in a large mixing bowl, mash bananas until smooth. It's okay if it's a bit lumpy! Add the eggs one at a time just until incorporated. Then add the sugar, oil, apple sauce and coconut extract and mix until smooth. 

3. In a separate bowl, mix together the gluten-free flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Slowly add this dry mixture to the wet mixture and mix until smooth. Lastly, fold in your 3/4 Cups of coconut flakes until there are no lumps. Your batter is ready! 

4. Spoon some batter into each muffin liner about 1/3 full. Then either spoon some Nutella on top of the batter or put the Nutella in a small plastic bag, cut an edge of the baggy off and squeeze it onto the batter like I did. Both methods work great! THEN spoon more batter on top of the Nutella until the muffin liners are 2/3 full. Finally, sprinkle the tops with coconut flakes. Now they're ready for the oven!!  

5. Bake for 22-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Once they're done, remove them from the oven and let cool for 5-10 minutes. If you'd like, top with more Nutella! More Nutella never hurts ;)

NOTE** if you want to make these a bit healthier, substitute the oil for the same amount of applesauce OR Greek yogurt and replace the granulated sugar with coconut sugar.
