Admit it, did you celebrate National Pancake Day?

index Come on yummy warm off the griddle pancakes dripping with piping hot butter and gooey warm syrup sounds like heaven to me, and if you leave near an IHOP you can even receive a free short stack of pancakes today for a small donation. But those free short stack of pancakes from IHOP today will cost you around 470 calories depending on the type of syrup you use, and to me that is NOT worth my time and effort to consume so many carbs and calories. But while the IHOP version might not be for you, you can still stop by a local IHOP today and make a donation towards charity, here is information from their website explaining why they do National Pancake Day each year.

Since beginning its National Pancake Day celebration in 2006, IHOP restaurants have raised $13 million to support charities in the communities in which they operate. On March 4, 2014, guests from around the country will once again celebrate National Pancake Day at IHOP restaurants and enjoy a free short stack of Buttermilk pancakes*. In return for the free pancakes, guests will be asked to consider leaving a donation for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals¬© ** or other designated local charities.

 

So instead I thought I would share some healthy pancake alternatives if you are just craving some pancake goodness.

Ingredients
  • 6 eggs
  • 8 tbsp coconut flour
  • 6 tbsp coconut milk
  • 3 tsp raw organic honey melted
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • coconut oil for the pan

Directions:

Add all of your ingredients into your mixing bowl and mix well making sure you break up any lumps that might be in the batter. Preheat your pan or griddle to 350 degrees or over medium heat. Using the coconut oil go ahead and grease the bottom of your skillet or pan and then drop your batter into the pan. Cook around 3-4 minutes on each side checking to make sure you don’t burn the sides and serve with sugar free maple syrup.
