As I was promising to post a while ago, here are a few very easy recipes you can make without flour and have little carbs in each bite. I have made crêpes, pancakes, muffins, breads,wraps, flats, name it! Get this ingredients below to start with crêpes:
~1/4 cup almond flour
~1 scoop vanilla protein powder
~1/2 teaspoon baking powder
~2 tablespoon evoo
~pinch of salt
~1 whole egg
~some water for mixing as a regular cake batter
~Pumking spices (or any other of your choice)
Mixing evenly all ingredients in a bowl, to a fluffy consistency, transfer to an oiled baking round dish filling it not quite to the top of baking dish. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Bake it for 45mins or so. In a microwave, cook it high for 3 mins.
The only variations I have in these crêpes, one has chia seeds, another one has sunflower seeds, or coconut, hemp, you can add whatever you want. Even a banana smashed for an amazing flavor, but bananas will add more carbs if you are too concern about carbs.
Next I have a nutty chia bread, is made basically with same ingredients. Servings are usually for 2. You can double it up ingredients if you want to make more at once and save them for later. I suggest to keep them in the fridge and you make much more then it would be a great idea to freeze them. You can re heat, toast etc again once you are ready to eat the rest.
This is the Chia bread:
Same ingredients above except for spices. I added chia seeds. I have made this with spanish olives and re sweet peppers, or kalamatta and rosemary evoo sea salt bread, also cinnamon bun style adding extra granulated stevia & cinnamon and pecans. You will get creative the more you make them.
Mixing protein powder & almond meal have made my recipes much more filling, tastier, with more fiber and protein and less carbs, and also so much fun to cook with! My flats are coming better than any flats are sold at regular supermarkets. Flats or wraps require less ingredients. Just like a pancake like, and this is how i use it, not only as pancakes or crêpes or pancakes:
A true sandwich for dinner, no guilty pleasure bites and for lunch as well:
What it takes to cook like this? Just be the boss at the kitchen, fearless! Cook out of the box and you will come up yourself with amazing healthy creations and a happy belly with no worries ever again.
