WIAW & Coconut Flour Mini Cakes

Happy Wednesday!! I am beyond ready for this week to be over. It just seems to be crawling by for some reason.WIAWbutton

Let’s get the wonderful Jenn’s party started!

For breakfast I was really craving pancakes, but I wanted to use up some of the coconut flour Bestie bought me. Enter in these delicious babies!

Coconut Flour Mini Cakes
makes 8-10 mini cakes

  • 3 large eggs
  • 4 Tablespoons organic coconut flour
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • stevia

Whip eggs well, then add remaining ingredients. Keep stirring until almost all lumps are removed. Heat pan, then stir again. Batter will be super thick. Pour into pan by tablespoons.IMG_0282

So fluffy and delicious!! I love coconut flour because I love the subtle hint of coconut flavoring in each bite.  Of course you could easily mask it by adding pumpkin, cocoa powder, or another flavoring, but these are amazing as is!

After breakfast I ran some errands, then came home to get my sweat on

Dinner was super tasty, and an old family recipe. My mom made this dish for me about once a week when I was growing up. It was fun to make it my own!

Mom’s Goulash

  • 1/2lb ground turkey
  • 1/2 can diced tomatoes
  • 1 C cooked elbow macaroni
  • salt, pepper, garlic to taste

Cook turkey until brown. Add remaining ingredients and simmer 15 minutes.

Mom always served hers with garlic toast, but I thought the meal itself was enough.  It was nice to share a bit of my childhood with Ninja by making him one of the dishes I used to eat!

Have you ever made a family recipe to share with a non-family member?
