Evan's Kitchen...a few recipes from our favorite Nutrition Guru!!!
Coconut Pancakes
4 eggs
1/4 cup coconut flour (you may have to go a little out of the way for this - Wegman's has it or a health food store)
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 pinch nutmeg
1 pinch cinnamon
1 tablespoon honey (you can cut this in half)
1/4 cup coconut milk (full fat) (Tai Kitchen is the best - Oh yea, shake the shit out of the can b4 you open it)
1/4 cup of dried unsweetened coconut flakes
Mix these ingredients and let them sit for five minutes. Oil or grease up your pan and heat over medium heat. Pour about a 1/4 cup of batter for each crepe, allowing each side to brown before flipping it.
Toppings are pretty much limitless - If you find some good ones let me know. I'm thinkin.... Almond butter topping 1/4 cup pumpkin added in some 85% dark chocolate melted on top any kind of berries

Cauliflower Crust Pizza
1 cup cooked, riced cauliflower
*1 egg
1 cup mozzarella cheese
1/2 tsp fennel
1 tsp oregano
2 tsp parsley pizza or Alfredo sauce toppings (make sure meats are cooked)
mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray. Could use silicone mat or parchment paper as well.
In a medium bowl, combine cauliflower, egg and mozzarella.
Press evenly on the pan (about 1/4 thick).
Sprinkle evenly with fennel, oregano and parsley.
Bake at 450 degrees for 12-15 minutes (15-20 minutes if you double the recipe).
Remove the pan from the oven. To the crust, add sauce, then toppings and cheese.Place under a broiler at high heat just until cheese is melted.
