|I turned 35 yesterday. Seriously, my parents sent me a card and I my dad said I was half way to 70. Ugh, that was uplifting! Ironically, I really had no problem turning 35. From the time I turned 30, up until now, I was always a little sad by birthdays. For some reason though, I was a lot more comfortable with this birthday! I had a great day with the illustrator which lead into a great evening with the kids! Since dinner was my call last night, I chose breakfast for dinner. My favorite! I am not much of a cake person (too sweet), I chose carrot cake pancakes. I figured two birds with one stone, right? I saw a recipe for pancakes using coconut flour on HEABs site a while back and was very interested in the high protein version of a pancake. Since I am always looking for ways to sneak protein into my diet, I really wanted to try these. Besides, they are dairy and gluten free! I followed her directions except I did not use protein powder since I don't have any that is dairy/soy free. The recipe is really good. I loved the high protein factor and the flavor was amazing. They are not your typical fluffy buttermilk pancake, but something completely different. I want to play around with them a little bit more before I post my favorite version, but take a look at Heather's version and give it a try.
Oh, and I am a dipper with syrup. I like the flavor of pancakes alone so I dip when I want a little sweetness.
