Lighten Up!


A bit wind-torn, but still a beautiful Tufted Primrose. Life is tough in the Wyoming wind.

Every once in a while, you need something light in your life.  Be it lightness of being, lightness of heart, something fulfilling but without weight of consciousness.  Just like the flower above- lovely and hardy, elegant in its imperfection.

Now, I want something light in my stomach.  So I made these crepe-like pancakes. And did I mention they are Keto?  Yep.  Most people like them sweet.  I prefer them savory.   This time, I used them as a base for pulled-pork with salsa verde and onions.  (And that pork is Keto too!)   You can even add BBQ sauce with 1 gram of sugar!

Here we go: 


1/2 C Almond Meal + 2 T Almond Flour

4 eggs

1/8 tsp Herb de Provence

pinch of salt

1/2 brick or 1/2 C of cream cheese.  ( I used light.  Though if you were to go full Keto, you would use full fat)

2 green onions sliced thin on the diagonal.  (Use the white part and some of the bright green)

Olive Oil or butter for frying.

Putting it Together:

Put the Almond flour, eggs, Herbs, cream cheese and pinch of salt in a medium bowl.  I use an immersion stick blender, but you can also throw everything into a standard blender.  Will be a crepe-like consistency.   Mix in onions by hand.  DO NOT BLEND.  If using regular blender, you will need to pour into a bowl before stirring in onions.

Heat the frying pan to medium heat.  Add butter.   when begins to bubble, add 1/4 c scoops of batter to pan. I would recommend 2-3 per batch.  Let them sit on one side till edges brown and center has bubbles forming.  Remember, you want these to be a bit done.  Flip, then serve hot.

Top with butter, bacon, cheese.   SO Yummy!

Note: Having issue uploading photos right now.  will add shot of pancakes soon.
