Pancakes, Pancakes: Day 3 Pancake Mania.

Eggy-er and eggy-er.

As per the slouching toward paleo plan: today's pancakes had 1T Arrowhead Mills pancake mix & 1T almond flour & 1 egg & one dribble of unsweetened coconut milk. And butter for the pan. And maple syrup.

Batter so gloopy.

I was worried the visible almond flecks would disrupt the diner’s enjoyment but they went unnoticed.

Somehow this made nine silver dollars, each with 7/9ths of a gram.

Somehow this made NINE silver dollars, each with 7/9ths of a gram. Oh–but there’s a chocolate chip in each one. So more like 1.5g CHO per silver dollar. We still use tree syrup. That adds 14g CHO to the plate. But he never uses it all. So about 25g CHO for this shebang. Is there a sugar-free syrup that a person would want to eat? (Smuckers and Hungry Jack have been rejected.)

Again, he did not notice any difference. The batter was so, so gaggingly eggy. They smelled and looked normal once they were cooked.

Dexcom result:

Is that kind of something? How quickly the BG dropped after the pancake oomph? A rolling hill would feel better to a person, I imagine.

Tomorrow try: just egg, 2T almond flour, dribble coconut milk, butter, T maple syrup. Just for experiment.

Dexcom Shape Game. Turn on side, maybe Quentin Blake-inspired sketch of Bermuda Bobby.

A Bobby wouldn’t really wear this shade of lipstick, but I couldn’t figure out how else to indicate “this is what I was thinking could be the mouth.”

    I have half a bottle of Vermont brand sugar free syrup. tastes pretty good to me… Will drop it off… Leftover from a certain T2D houseguest. Oh and how about homemade no sugar added strawberry preserves instead of syrup?

      We would love to try the Vermont syrup! Thank you! And if YOU liked it, that’s really something. I’d be happy to have B step away from the beige plastic jug.

      I think jam would have the same carb count as maple syrup, because of all of the fruit.

      This is making me hungry. I don’t even like pancakes.

        If Bubs doesn’t like the fake syrup straight up, maybe you could surrupticiously combine the real stuff with the fake and slowly increase the proportion of fake….avoiding work now. I think a nice walk would be good…. It would bring me past your front porch… Then home to clean house.

    I have never successfully cooked anything with the trader joes almond meal. I use Red Mill Almond meal, which is three times as expensive … But if you buy online in bulk you get a small price cut.

    If Bubs likes the eggy pancakes try these pumpkin pancakes. There is no almond meal … Just eggs and pumpkins. WhenBen eats them we use real maple syrup but only less then a tablespoon … Anymore would be too much anyway.

    4 eggs
    1/2 cup canned pumpkin
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
    1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    2 tablespoons butter or coconut oil
    (more for frying)

    Whisk first 4 ingredients … Then shift in the rest

    I make smaller size pancakes. They come out thin so anything too big is difficult to flip.

    I end up not counting too many carbs for the pancakes and focus on the carbs for the maple syrup we add after.

    I hope you didn’t take yesterday’s syrup-related comment as being critical; I certainly didn’t mean it that way.

    A mom who takes the time to make fresh pancakes for her kid every morning before school, and makes the effort to refine and tweak (and document!) the recipe as well? Pure awesomeness. I just take some store-bought frozen pancakes from the fridge, pop ’em in the toaster, and if my kid doesn’t like it (that never happens), he goes hungry.

    I respect and admire your dedication.

      no way, man. I didn’t feel criticized. But I did think it was kind of bitchy that I said “local” or “real” maple syrup, as if I’m so pure. I mean, I know I’m not so pure. But I thought I sounded like I felt all syrup soap boxy.

    I am fascinated by the eggful pancakes. The other day when you were saying how duck eggs grossed you out I meant to comment how much I agree because my husband eats them.

    It’s my only insight to how a vegetarian might have strong feelings about not eating animals. To me, chicken eggs= deliciousness, but duck eggs = eating a slimy duck fetus. I can’t talk myself out of it.
