Phase 1 | Serves 2 | Makes 8 Pancakes
1 cup Fast Metabolism All Purpose Baking Mix
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
4 large egg whites
1/2 cup peeled, finely diced apple
In a bowl, stir together the baking mix and cinnamon. In a separate bowl, whip the egg whites with an electric mixer until soft peaks form, 2 to 3 minutes.
Gently fold in the dry ingredients, then fold in the diced apple.
In a hot non-stick skillet, drop about 1/3 cup of the batter, and smooth out to make eight 3-inch pancakes. Cook until small bubbles appear and the underside of the pancake is a light golden brown.
Flip and cook for a minute more. Serve with Quick Apple Compote.
Quick Apple Compote
3 1/2 apples, peeled, cored, and chopped
3 tablespoons water
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon arrowroot powder
15 drops liquid stevia, or to taste
Place all ingredients in a microwave-safe bowl and cover with plastic wrap (leave a small vent). Microwave on high 2 minutes or until the apples are tender.
Portion: 4 pancakes plus 1 serving of apple compote equals a Phase 1 grain and a Phase 1 fruit portion.
