What would you do if you knew that you could have chocolate for breakfast…and not feel bad about it?? These Chocolate Chocolate Chip Pancakes are not only low carb and gluten free but also practically guilt free. Carolyn substitutes coconut flour for regular flour and ups the protein using a vanilla protein powder. Our favorite part, as expected, is the double dose of chocolate – cocoa powder (preferable dutch-processed) in the batter and little bits of good dark chocolate studded throughout. Since these are healthier than they look and taste, indulge a bit for your weekend breakfast and don’t feel bad about making that short stack a little taller.
“ I really do dream about food all day. Sometimes I dream about it at night too. My mission is to make low carb, gluten-free recipes the whole family will love. I also plan to take over the world. ”
Carolyn brings life to her blog’s motto of “Low Carb, Gluten Free, and Fabulous.” After being diagnosed with diabetes, Carolyn refused to give up her passion for cooking and baking and started sharing her innovative and healthful creations through her blog, All Day I Dream About Food. It’s packed with everything from soups and salads to baked goods of every kind, cocktails, and main dishes to keep you and your family going throughout the week. And, as well as being a blogger, she’s also a published cookbook author with her book Low Carbing Among Friends, which she wrote with 4 other bloggers. Her food proves that even with certain restrictions on your diet, you can still eat delicious, creative, and indeed “dreamy” food!
Coconut flour is a great alternative flour because it is gluten free, high in fiber, and low carb. It's also very absorbent so you'll need to adjust your recipe.Read the full tip >
