Chick-Fil-A copy cat but vegan

  I have been watching way to many copy cat YouTube videos lately. I have never even been to Chick-Fil-A but decided to make the sauce after I saw the recipe on Raphael Gomes channel. The only things in the sauce that are not already vegan were mayo and honey I have access to vegan substitutes.  I found the vegan honey didn’t taste like honey it’s less sweet and has a darker flavour like molasses. It’s good though. Recipe is simple mix ingredients in a jar I didn’t follow exact measurements. I then let it sit in the fridge for an hour.  That looks pretty close to the pictures I have seen of the sauce. It tasted pretty good if I make it again I will add more honey as it wasn’t sweet enough I didn’t account for the milder taste of vegan honey.  I live close to a no waste grocery store and they sell beyond tenders by the piece. I had waffle fries in my freezer and use my airfryer to heat the tenders and fries. The tenders are a little expensive so I didn’t want to experiment with doing an

Tasty Easy no flour pancakes and snow days - December 18, 2016


We have had many snow days in Coquitlam in the last few weeks. This is not normal usually it snows once a year and its gone the next day. The temperatures are remaining low this year and although pretty it makes commuting difficult. I have cancelled attending a few things as it is too difficult to commute we get wet snow here so there is a lot of ice everywhere.  Downtown Vancouver was a little different you can't even tell there was any snow there some days were even nice and sunny with temperatures of -1 or -2 compared to -7 or less in other areas. I am grateful that we now have a skytrain close by as the path to get to the skytrain is cleared so I am able to commute much easier than before.

As it is holiday season with lots of eating and treats here is something that feels luxurious but is actually easy and healthy. I saw the recipe in a magazine and I went from memory when making them so adjusted things to my taste.











Easy No Flour Pancakes

1 ripe banana
1/4 of a cup Almond Butter
2 eggs


The recipe said  to mash the banana with a fork then mix the other ingredients. I just put everything in the magic bullet. I couldn't remember the rest of the recipe so i put ghee on my griddle pan and cooked like I would any pancake. The first one I had the heat too high as this is a little softer than a regular pancake so it cooked to fast and fell apart. After I  lowered the heat and poured the batter a little thicker they turned out like crepes in texture. They tasted like a banana pancake a little sweet with nothing on them but i like that. Add a little nut butter, honey or maple syrup to the top and these are a great breakfast.

Update
I made it a second time this time I added macadamia nuts to it. Turned out much better than the first time.
