Never enough recipes for an egg fast
Agree? I think that to keep someone motivated for doing a whole 5-days egg fast, it is essential to plan the fast out in advance (to some degree at least) and keep it safe from becoming boring and mundane.
Naturally, everyone who’s gone keto and loves pancakes knows about cream cheese pancakes or greek yogurt pancakes. But some of us, especially if female, like (or perhaps even need) to keep away from dairy products when noticing a weight loss stall or weight gain. While the “official” rules of egg fast allow for a few ounces of cheese per day, I think alternatives to dairy should be found and used.
Because of potential problems that dairy might bring, I’ve come up with dairy-free pancakes that I make for breakfast regularly. I top them with whatever I like, may it be cream cheese, coconut cream, or sugar-free dark chocolate topping (when not egg-fasting). Depends on whether I want to avoid dairy entirely or not. The egg-fast pancakes are relatively fragile but still “flippable” and, with a carefully selected topping, very filling and nutritious.
When not egg-fasting, I add a tablespoon or two of coconut flour. I like the sweetness and the density it adds to the pancakes. If you don’t need to avoid dairy, it is great to have more room for cream cheese topping because of no cheese in the batter. My suggestion is mixing 2 oz. of cream cheese with a tablespoon of melted butter, vanilla extract, and sweetener of choice. If avoiding dairy, use coconut cream instead.
