Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte

latteautumn

Gingerbread, eggnog, pumpkin spice….

Whenever seasonal lattes roll out at national coffee chains, we feel strangely drawn to try them. But disappointment looms…. primarily because, we crave the nutrients that those delicious smells impart, when they are naturally prepared. Unfortunately, they are flavored, almost entirely, with aritificial ingredients, and therefore, not supplying us with the anticipated, REAL treat.

Being the foodie that I am, I scoured all sorts of media to find some good recipes.  Here is the pumpkin spice latte recipe that I enjoyed most. I’ve adapted it, to suit my tastes.
Enjoy!

Ingredients
Servings:
Instructions
  1. Mix the eggs, coconut flour, coconut milk, vanilla, baking soda, and monk fruit sweetener. Mix well.
  2. To cook these pancakes, you can use a griddle or a frying pan. Put the coconut oil into the pan to grease it and put the pan on low heat.
  3. Ladle some of the batter into the pan (to form a 3-inch diameter circle). The pancake should be thick so don’t try to make the batter spread out. If you’re using a large enough frying pan, you can cook 3 or 4 pancakes at the same time.
  4. Cook for 2 minutes and then flip. Continue cooking and flipping until both sides are brown.
  5. Microwave the berries for 1 minute. The juices will release and you will have a Keto berry syrup. Pour over pancakes and enjoy!

Keto Curried Chicken

This Keto Paleo Curried Chicken completely made me forget I was cutting out sugar.

The coconut curry ties all the ingredients together, while the pepitas give it a nice crunch, and the mild earthy blueberries give it the little sweetness that the dish requires, without breaking the Keto bank.

Pumpkin Walnut Bread with Oat Flour

PumpkinBreadCut1_brightened

This bread is incredibly moist, beautifully spiced and full of pumpkin flavor. Accented with warm spices like cinnamon, plus a touch of earthy nutmeg and clove, dreamy coconut oil, and vanilla too. It’s not too oaty. The walnuts give it a lovely crunch, and the maple glaze.. divine!

The oat flour is so easy to make, you just blend oats until they resemble a flour-like texture. They create a beautiful depth of flavor in the bread.

An Attitude of Gratitude


Gratitude

Gratitude is good for your mental health. 

Gratitude is a thankful appreciation for what a person receives, whether tangible or intangible. With gratitude or thankfulness, people acknowledge the goodness in their lives. In the process, they usually recognize that the source of that goodness lies at least partially outside themselves. As a result, being thankful also helps people connect to something larger than themselves— whether to other people, nature or a higher power.
