Foodie Friday!

The fiance is a huge fan of breakfasts.  So, I was on the hunt for a good recipe that we could enjoy post long run.  And I scored.  BIG time!  Josh went back for more THREE times!

Pumpkin & Salted Caramel Cinnamon Roll Pancakes (modified from Real Sustenance blog)

Ingredients for the pancakes:

  • 1 cup blanched almond flour, packed
  • 1/2 cup potato starch
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 Tablespoons coconut palm sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup oil
  •  1 Tbs melted nondairy butter
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 teaspoon cinnamon

Ingredients for the caramel sauce:

  • 1/4 cup nondairy butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut palm sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon heavy cream from a can of thick coconut milk.
  • pinch of salt


In a large bowl, combine the ingredients for the pancakes. The batter will be kind of thick, but that’s okay.

Flip the pancake after 1-2 minutes and cook on the other side until done. Repeat with the rest!  This recipe will make 6 large pancakes.

Pour the caramel sauce over the pancakes, in lieu of syrup.  It was delish- I can’t describe how happy I was with this recipe!  I served it up with bacon and poached eggs for a good source of protein and muscle recovery.

And, yes, of course, we cannot forget the best part of post long run recovery… :).  Cheers!
