Sugar Free, Gluten Free Coconut Flour Oatmeal Pancakes - Candida Diet friendly

So I'm on the Candida diet, which is very similar to a Paleo diet, but with even more restrictions. 

I am coping okay under the circumstances. But I do miss pancakes. I really like them. 

Probably because you usually top them with something sweet and they kind of remind me of cake. So I was craving some. 

And I have also decided to try and incorporate some non-glutenous whole grains back into my diet on a limited basis. Because although I do want to starve out the Candida, I don't want to starve myself. I don't want to lose any more weight , I don't want to be hungry all the time and frankly I need some convenient alternatives to cook with as time is precious and in short supply.  So I decided to replace some of the simple carbs I had to give up in fruit with some complex carbs in whole grains. 

Its kind of fun to shop for some new ingredients again. Do you know how many whole grains they have at Bulk Barn. Fun, fun, fun. I even bought some Black Rice - it is the sexiest thing ever. That's how much I love food! Sad.

Anyway. I made these delicious pancakes. Really good. As a topping I mixed some nut butter, canned coconut milk, cinnamon, Stevia and butter. I warmed it in the microwave before spreading it on top. And then sprinkled more coconut on top. It wasn't maple syrup but it was good.  And filling. I'll be making these again and next time the kids will be sharing them so I'll make a double batch.
