Within a week it will be a year since I’ve started eating KETO. Cutting carbs and sugar is still a daily battle, as it’s almost in every food. But with these low-carb pancakes I’m making it myself more easy to eat healthy.
On Social Media there are often reactions to my stories when I cook. Usually with the remark that it’s not 100% KETO. And that’s right. I ate strictly KETO for the first three months, but now I pay extra attention to not exceed 20 to 50grams of sugar or carbs a day. I do this because vitamins are so important and I still want to be able to enjoy my meals without getting out of ketosis.
Because when you eat strictly KETO, you count your calories, you eliminate all carbohydrates and sugars, and therefore also different kinds of fruits or vegetables.
We all deserve morning cuddles and pancakes
But as pancakes are so delicious, especially with blueberries, I share with you today my own favorite recipe. You can always add extra fruit or toppings afterwards! Just make it the way you like your pancakes the most.
The recipe is super easy and in less than half an hour your healthy breakfast is ready on the table.
Mix the following ingredients:
– 2 eggs
– 10 grams of oatmeal
– 1 banana
– A hand full of blueberries
When mixing, make sure you crush both the oatmeal and the banana well to avoid large chunks. You can also use the mixer to prepare the base. Or if you prefer to make it plain, without any fruits inside, you can do that as well. By keeping the base plain, you can even add salmon or avocados to your breakfast.
Add some peanut butter
Since I’m doing KETO, I got addicted to peanuts and chocolate. So nowadays, whenever I decide to make pancakes, I add a spoon of peanut butter. It’s perfect in combination with bananas, almonds and the butter is KETO. Doesn’t that sound like a perfect mix?
Greek yoghurt and honey
Besides pancakes I also eat Greek yoghurt with honey very often. So why not combine the two? The Greek yogurt is also partly KETO, if you take the one with less than 4g sugars. And you can combine it with any kind of fruit!
Speaking of fruit, the best KETO-proof fruit types are all those that end in “berries”. Think about blackberries, raspberries, strawberries and blueberries. Here as well, you eat everything in moderation and it’s best to stay under 20 grams. For example, a banana contains 13.4 grams a piece. So you can eat a maximum of one a day.
