RESOURCES / RECIPES / BREAKFAST BLINIS
Brunches can become boring if you don’t occasionally add some zing to them and these breakfast blinis are just the ticket. They are bite sized morsels of deliciousness which are the perfect carriers for your favourite keto toppings.
1 serving = 1 blini of about 10g’s
Carbohydrates: Total 0.9g’s Net 0.1g’s Protein 1g’s Fat 2.5g’s
You will need:
¼ cup coconut flour
2 tblsp olive oil
Pinch of salt
⅓ teaspoon garlic powder
⅓ teaspoon onion powder
⅓ cup coconut cream
⅛ teaspoon of baking soda
Olive oil for frying
Add all the wet ingredients: eggs, coconut cream and olive oil together - whisk them thoroughly.
Add the remaining ingredients, gently folding them in and being careful to not overmix the batter as this will result in the blinis being flat and not fluffy and light.
Using a large pan, put in a drizzle of olive oil and heat on a low heat. Using a teaspoon, drop spoons of batter into the pan until you have a few of them cooking in the pan. They will rise gently and once they have browned, flip them over using a small spatula. Allow the other side to brown and then set aside whilst you prepare the rest of the blinis, using the remaining batter.
Allow them to cool and add your favourite keto toppings.
A note from me:
This recipe is an adaptation of one that I found in an old cookbook. I have enjoyed adapting it to the keto way of life and it has graced a few platters in the last few years. Using it as an appetizer with a topping of cream cheese and smoked salmon, has always been a hit and often folks didn't even know that it was keto! I love it when everyone can enjoy a dish, no matter what their dietary preferences are (although secretly it gives me a kick when they are doing better for their health without knowing it!)
