{GAPS} Apple Pancake (and update)

We’ve completed our three month commitment to GAPS, but we’re pretty much still eating “full GAPS”. We love the food, and it’s not that hard to stay on it at home. We are adding healthy things that we miss (like quinoa) in slowly, and we’re not quite as stringent when outside the house (like eating pasteurized cheese at a party).

Here’s a GAPS recipe that’s totally yummy even if you don’t have to avoid grains! (Original recipe here on the Health, Home, & Happiness blog)

Donuts

 

Well I guess the girls have fallen off the blogging wagon and lost their posting momentum! This is mom again…

Most of us are now on Full GAPS and we’re enjoying a bit more freedom in what we can eat. We missed raw fruit and veggies quite a bit and of course there are more baked good options now including donuts and waffles! These are made from white beans and coconut flour – toppings are fermented blueberries, coconut manna spread, local raw honey, and nut butter (made from sprouted and dehydrated almonds, walnuts, pumpkin and sunflower seeds). We’re still primarily eating soups, good meats (picked up a quarter of a cow yesterday!), and ferments for another couple months. Everyone’s putting on weight (a VERY good thing in our scrawny family) and digestive systems are working well. Hopefully we’re healing any leaky gut issues and building up healthy intestinal flora….

{edit by Jordan} I found the waffle recipe! It’s here on The Spunky Coconut. We have a donut maker like this one that works just like a waffle iron, so we use the waffle recipe to make healthy donuts too!
