During Whole30, you’re encouraged to not “paleofy” any of your favorite foods or sweet treats. Since we’re done now, we decided to give Paleo Pancakes a try. I found a recipe for Banana-Blueberry Pancakes and thought they sounded perfect.
Banana Blueberry Pancakes
- 1 cup almond flour
- 3 whole eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 small or medium banana
- 1 cup frozen or fresh blueberries (we used fresh)
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1. Mash banana in a mixing bowl.
2. Add eggs, cinnamon and vanilla. Mix well.
3. Stir in almond flour.
4. Fold in berries and walnuts.
5. Heat coconut oil in large skillet and spoon pancake batter into skillet. Makes 6 pancakes.
I topped mine with a little Sunbutter after this picture was taken. They were definitely different than the pancakes we’re used to but they were good. We probably won’t make them very often but it was nice to switch things up a little.
I made some Tuna Cakes for lunch using a different recipe and they were really good. They stayed together much better than the last time I made them.
Paleo Tuna Cakes
- 2 cans tuna
- 2 eggs
- 2 tbsp almond flour
- 2 tbsp coconut flour
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tbsp mustard
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion powder (I used finely chopped onion)
- 2 pinches cayenne pepper
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Coconut oil
1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl until well combined. Form into 4 patties. I let the mixture sit for a few minutes so the flours could absorb some of the moisture.
2. Heat oil over medium high eat and cook the patties for 3 minutes on each side, until golden brown.
We served them with cucumber, onions, black olives and Garlic Gold vinaigrette.
Later in the afternoon, I roasted some sweet potatoes for the week.
I drizzled these with coconut oil and added a little bit of salt and pepper. 400 degrees for 15 minutes.
I did the same thing to the butternut squash.
Dinner was pork tenderloin with roasted peppers, onions and mushrooms.
The tenderloin is topped with the marinade that Dane used. He just warmed it up on the stove right before we ate.
Pork Tenderloin Marinade
- Lime juice
- Lime zest
- Coconut aminos
- Olive oil
- Fish sauce
- Salt & pepper
As you can tell from my weekend posts, we really haven’t changed much since we finished Whole30. I haven’t even had that glass of wine! I’m looking forward to weighing in on Wednesday. I’m hoping I’ll be able to report that I’m in the 160’s!
Kristen announced that she’s going to be doing Whole30 in April, so if you’re interested in following her journey or joining her, check out her blog.
