You can also use pumpkin, butternut or any kind of winter squash.
To cook the acorn squash just wrap it with aluminum foil and bake at 375 degrees F for 40 minutes or until soft.
¼ cup of grated carrots
1 tsp of baking powder
2 egg whites
1 tsp of cinnamon
2 tbsp. of Stevia (to taste)
A pinch of baking soda
¼ cup of water
½ cup of blueberries
½ cup of strawberries
For the cacao sauce
1 tablespoon of unsweetened cacao
½ cup of water
1 additional tbsp. of Stevia (to taste)
Tip: You can save time by leaving all the ingredients (except the fruit, water, and ingredients for cacao sauce) in a Ziplock bag the night before.
Put all the ingredients (except the fruit and the ingredients for the cacao sauce) in a blender and blend it for 2 minutes. The resulting texture should be a little bit thick.
Let the mixture rest for two minutes while heating the pan for the next step.
Tip: ALWAYS let the mixture rest, that is the secret for successful pancakes
Form the mixture into small circles in a nonstick pan and cook on medium heat for 2.5 minutes, then flip. Use approximately ¼ cup of the mixture to form each pancake.
Tip: You know the pancakes are ready to flip when the edges of the pancakes lift up easily with the spatula.
Tip: If the pancakes are raw in the center then try cooking them a little longer at low heat with the lid.
For the cacao sauce. Put the water in a small pot on high heat and bring to boil. Once boiling, add the cacao and cook uncovered for 2 minutes at high heat, stirring occasionally, until you have a thick texture, then add the Stevia.
These would serve 2 on Phase 3, minus the strawberries.
