Simple Bean Cake Recipe: Feels like cheat day!
I made these this morning for breakfast, with a side of greens. They taste like potato pancakes and the onion gives them a nice bite.
1 can of beans, drained and rinsed (I used pinto)
1 small cooking onion, diced
1 whole large egg, beaten
egg whites added as needed
salt and pepper to taste
oil to fry (I used olive)
1.Mash your beans and mix all of your ingredients until they are the consistency of a thick pancake batter. Add the egg whites to thin it as needed.
2. Heat the oil in your pan, spoon the batter as you would pancakes, and brown on both sides.
3. OM NOM NOM.

These, are absolutely awesome! I ended up using two small eggs, instead of one with extra egg whites, and the split the batch up: I made four small (well blinis more than) pancakes, then added some shredded natural ham to another third, which made three or four smalls, and then some Morrocan seasoning. Very Tasty!
Big hit with Mr Cait, who's been struggling with appetite this week. So thanks!!
I just tried a variation on these that came out delicious.
I used garbanzo beans, almond flour and added unsweetened shredded coconut, then seasoned it with curry powder and some red pepper flakes.
They were outstanding... kind of a cross between Middle Eastern falafel and South Indian dosa.
I made little ones so it made 7 cakes from 1 can of garbanzo beans. Hopefully eating 1 a day for the week still counts as "chickpeas in moderation!"
Thanks for the inspiration.
First of all, much love to the OP for sharing an amazing recipe. This is definitely a new stable for my meal plan. And in the interest of our shared movement towards happier, healthier bodies I'd like to share what I ate for dinner tonight.
This is the 4 Hour Burger. It's a beef patty with two bean pancakes and some fried onions. No carb, all taste. It is definitely NOT a go-to meal, it's got a lot of fat to go with that protein. But it's definitely a nice option when you're tired of your regular meals and might be feeling a little carby. Enjoy!
