Wheat-free, Yeast-free, Sugar-free brunch!


Just thought you'd like to see our brunch! Almond Oat flour pancakes with mixed berry syrup, deeelish. I doubt anyone will want the recipe... the only reason they tasted good to us is because it's our first day back on fruit after a 2 week haitus! I'm doing a yeast cleanse under doctor supervision to rid myself of bad yeast and test my food allergies, they suspect I am allergic to gluten. yikes! 

Anywho, now we're off to Brooklyn Flea to find a tall dresser. I have a very specific one in mind though, so hopefully we don't come back empty handed! Enjoy your sunday and check out the newly updated postsecret

Pancakes:

1 cup almond flour
1 cup oat flour
4 eggs
4 tablespoons canola or coconut oil
1/2 cup water (I used sparkling water to make fluffier pancakes)
1/2 Teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon Xylitol (sugar substitute found at whole foods/health food stores)

*I added a few extra ingredients after tasting the first pancake because it tasted like a corn cake... which would be good with other meals! I added:

1 Teaspoon vanilla
a couple dashes of cinnamon

Mix all ingredients and cook just like you would regular pancakes. They don't bubble like regular pancakes so keep your eyes on them. This makes about 5 5-inch pancakes.

Berry Syrup:
1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1 cup raspberries
1 cup blackberries
-OR-
3 cups from a frozen mixed fruit bag

1/2 cup water
pinch of salt
1/2 cup xylitol (I used much less, and it was still very sweet)

Put all ingredients in a sauce pan and bring to a boil. The berries will begin to break down. After 5 minutes turn off the heat and mash with a fork or masher. Boil for another 2 minutes to combine and remove from heat. The mixture with thicken as it cools. It makes about 2 cups of syrup. YUM!
