Christmas Excitement and a Coconut Flax Pancake Recipe

I hope everyone had a great weekend! I spent the weekend in hanging around in Central Park, doing school work and online Christmas shopping. 20121217-141807.jpgI'm going back home to Jacksonville, FL on Thursday for my first Christmas with the family since I moved up to NYC four years ago. The excitement I feel right now reminds me of how I felt every year growing up as a child! I seriously cant wait to do all things Christmas with my family! I look forward to listening to Christmas music as we drive around different neighborhoods to look at Christmas lights, Cooking with my mom and I can't wait to wake up on Christmas, have a hot cup of Joe and spend the whole day with Chris and my family! I believe it will be the best Christmas ever :)

20121217-141839.jpg I'm almost done shopping for everyone, there are just a few more things I have to get from my list but that will most likely have to wait until I get to FL. I even think my Christmas gifts I've gotten for everyone so far are all pretty awesome!

Since I've been on Keto this last week, I've eaten a ton of delicious foods! (Check out my Instagram for lots of foodporn!) I have been trying to experiment with a new low carb, higher fat pancakes and throughout the week and I whipped up these really delicious coconut flax pancakes. They were just the right consistency and were oh so moist! I tried to make 2 pancakes but since I used the small pan they merged into one cake.

•2 jumbo eggs •2 tbsp flax meal •2 tsp coconut flour •1 tbsp almond milk •Dash of baking soda •Cinnamon and stevia to taste

I topped mine with almond butter and the entire meal came out to about 368 calories.
