step by step recipe

I have no finsihed Bethenny Frankel’s Naturally Thin book and I have picked up a few good recipes from that chica… my favourite is her faux pancakes. Now I’m gonna do something a bit different – I’m gunna give you a recipe how to!

So here we go…
–I use 1/2 cup of egg whites, splash of milk, splash of vanilla extract, cinnamon, cocoa powder, shredded coconut and a little bit of oatmeal.
Step 1- Add desired ingredients to a bowl (or in my case mixing cup). You can put whatever you want in these pancakes Bethtenny says to use 2 egg whites & 1 whole egg. Do what your heart desires!

Step 2 – MIX until frothy (you can skip this step but i like the fluffiness of the final product when it is done this way)

Step 3 – Put a non stick pan on a medium heat, spray with a non stick spray or use butter. Pour mix into pan. Step 4 – Let the mix sit for about a minute then start using your spatula to life away the edges. Keep lifting at the edges. Take a peak and look at the underside of the “pancake” and once it turns golden brown you can flip it (carefully!).
Step 5 – Let the pancake cook for about another 1-2 minutes until the other side becomes golden brown then slide the pancake out of the pan onto your plate! Then top with whatever ingredients your craving! PB & J, syrup, honey & nuts, yogurt & fruit… GO FOR IT!

Final product… I used a bit more cocoa powder today cause I had a chocolate craving so its darker than normalHere is Bethenny’s recipe so you can try her way out first then make your own modifications!

1/4cup of eggwhites
1 whole egg
1/4 tsp vanilla or strawberry extract
1 tsp of raw sugar or sweetner

1. Heat plan or medium-high heat. Spray with non stick cooking spray.
2. In a bowl mix; eggs, extract and sugar. Pour mixture into pan and stir lightly.
3. When egg is firm on one side carefully flip over. When it is fully cooked and fluffy move it to a plate.
4. Top with fresh fruit or some real maple syrup.

Please try it out! You can have two of these fauxpankes for the price of one very very small real pancake!
