Well, I don’t want to excuse myself for being absent for such a long time again, because I think you certainly become tired of hearing that from me every second month 😉 Yes, there are always some weeks in year when I am super busy and on the road almost every weekend, so you can probably imagine there is no time for blogging. In addition I want to be honest, there was also a time I was fighting with some health issues and I was simply tired of being active on social media. And because I just blog for fun and not for living I just take my time to find my motivation and pleasure for all that stuff again. Today I am finally back for posting this long time ago promised recipe for gluten, dairy and refined sugar free coconut pancakes.
As a real foodie I love to cook and bake for myself because I really love to eat. Of course we also go out for dinner or even eat fast food from time to time especially when we are on the road. And needless to say I would never refuse a invitation for dinner or lunch of a friend and there is almost nothing better than eating at mum’s. But I have to say I love it more to host. And since we have a little daughter I rather invite for brunch than for dinner, because most of our friends have kids at the same age. So the kids can play with each other without becoming grumpy too quickly and we parents have enough time to talk each other calmly. If you have your own little family you know how time flies and suddenly there are another weeks or evens months which have passed.
As I maybe have already mentioned I am not a kind of low carb girl. But as someone who is really interested in all kind food I have heard of those low carb flours which are made from nuts like (de-oiled) almond or coconut flour. And as a food blogger who is naturally curious and always happy to try out new things I have to buy some (okay it is a little more than “some”… actuatally I bought 1 kg!!!) coconut flour. Amittedly I have already heard baking with coconut flour requires a lot liquids. But I was still surprised how much liquids coconut flour absorbs. So if you experiment with coconut flour it’s can be very recommandable to allow the batter to rest for about 5-10 minutes, then you can see if your batter needs more liquid or not (the batter should have the same texture as you know from “normal” batter).
From no-breakfast to breakfast-addicted – this is how you can call my story. And such breakfast like this one has contributed to make me think on breakfast first once I wake up. But let’s be honest, chocolate and salted caramel sound more like a dessert than the first meal of the day, right? And who can say “no” to chocolate, salted caramel or dessert? Yeah, I guess nobody. Dessert for breakfast sounds to good be true? Believe me, these overnight oats variation is one of my favorite with very good reason. It’s creamy, not to sweet, chocolaty and topped with the best sweet treat ever: salted caramel sauce. So it will not only fills your stomach (and keeps you full until lunch), but also your soul (you know, chocolate is always for the youl, too :-))
