I had 2 blueberry pancakes with only 12 carbs.

Saturday, July 07, 2012

Well, the blueberries added a few carbs I suppose but the actual pancakes didn't. How did I do this? I made coconut flour pancakes. I feel like I died and went to heaven. Coconut flour is very low carb and is high in fiber. I use to bake for my DH all the time because he has Crohn's Disease. It's one of the only flours allowed. I like it better than almond flour (and almond flour is good). If you are interested in recipes type in to sparks recipes pancakes coconut flour. Several recipes there. I'm thinking pumpkin muffins sometime soon. First I have to make sure they don't affect my weight like white flour carbs. They didn't before, but I wasn't exactly watching my weight as carefully. Have a great day.....I sure did haha.

    Do you measure coconut flour the same was as you measure regular flour? And can you use it for savory food items? I bake bread every week -- I wonder if it would work?

    Coconut flour is great and you can make pancakes with brown rice flour but it is a little dry unless you get a good one.
