Pancakes! THM Style.

I love pancakes, and after starting the Trim healthy Mama diet I was happy to know I could still have them. I thought I'd do a post on both the S and E pancakes that I've tried. 

First the E:

These. are. good. :) Just look: 

Trim Healthy Pancakes (recipe in book).  The only thing that makes them difficult to make is you can't use much fat to grease the pan, so they tend to stick, (I need a new non stick pan). Onto toppings!  I think it's safe to say that strawberries are my favorite fruit, when I get to eat them on top of pancakes, well, lets just say it makes me very happy :) :). 

What I'll do is slice the strawberries, then cook with water until soft. Sprinkle in a little bit of glucomannan powder to thicken, also some Truvia if needed, and there you have it: the perfect pancake topping! :) I also will usually have a bit of 0% plain Greek yogurt and a little plan approved syrup. 

The pancakes pair very well with turkey bacon (1g fat per slice, 0 carbs) and maybe a cup of vanilla tea with a little splash of milk. 

For my S meal I made some coconut flour chocolate chip pancakes. I was happy to find stevia sweetened chocolate chips last time I went grocery shopping. Because fats are allowed with S meals, I had these pancakes with coconut oil and a little bit of syrup. The syrup I have is a touch carb heavy, and had to be limited. I also had real bacon, and coffee with cream.  Next time, I'm going to try strawberries, butter, and whipped cream for my toppings. :)
