Coconut flour cacao pancakes
GF, Dairy free
Happily serves 12 pancakes

ALL ORGANIC INGREDIENTS
1⁄3 Cup Coconut flour
5 eggs
½ Nut milk of choice
¼ Cup full fat coconut milk
¼ Cup coconut sugar or stevia
3 TBSP Raw Cacao powder
¾ tsp vanilla extract
Dash of Sea salt
Coconut oil spray for each pancake

In a deep bowl, whisk all ingredients except ghee/coconut ghee/coconut oil, until well combined. Batter should be very thick but pourable. Not watery.
Let batter sit for 5 minutes to let the coconut flour absorb the liquid, stirring once more at the end.
Pour about 1⁄3 cup of batter into a frying pan pre-heated with coconut oil. 
If necessary, tilt pan and shake lightly for even distribution of batter. (Batter does not necessarily need to spread throughout the pan).
Fry for a couple of minutes, occasionally covering with a lid, till liquid has almost firmed up
Tip: Covering the pan with a lid occasionally will help keep moisture and enhance even cooking.
Flip with a spatula, and fry the other side for a couple more minutes, then remove from pan.
Repeat for rest of batter, greasing pan between batches as needed, and occasionally stirring the batter left in your bowl for even consistency.

Walk for 45 minutes, 5 times a week (3 days of interval training and 2 days of steady weight training).

Go to bed 15 minutes earlier this week.
Your goal is to get at least 7 hours of restive sleep per night. Integrate meditation as needed to achieve this goal.

Stress Management
Do a Relaxing Breath at least twice a day. (If you don’t like bathing then do a foot soak/bath.)
