Coconut & Vanilla Pancakes

This pancake recipe is so simple and easy to whip up, and I often make these into small pikelets and take them to work as a snack or on picnic dates. There are so many different variations of these that you could create; for a sweet option add a quality food grade orange essential oil + a little cacao for a delicious choc orange pancake, or blend a little banana into the mix, you could also try adding chia seeds, shredded coconut, stewed apple or a handful of blueberries.

If you prefer savoury pancakes just omit the cinnamon, vanilla and sweetener and add fresh herbs, quality cheese, spices and/ or turmeric, serve on a bed of spinach leaves with avocado, sautéed onions and garlic, mushrooms, tomato or even a dollop of homemade pesto, mayonnaise or hollandaise sauce. Yum!

Serves 2-3 people

Ingredients

3 Tbsp coconut flour, sifted
4 organic eggs
2 Tbsp Grass-fed Ghee & Coconut Oil Blend + extra for cooking
1/3 cup organic coconut milk or cream
1-2 tsp Vanilla Powder
2 tsp apple cider vinegar
½ tsp baking powder
A pinch of Himalayan salt
1 tsp cinnamon

Optional: ½ - 1 Tbsp honey or sweetener of choice 

Method 

  1. Whisk the eggs, coconut oil, honey (or sweetener of choice), vanilla, cinnamon and coconut milk together. Or simply add these ingredients to a food processor or blender and whizz until well combined.

  2.  Add all other ingredients (either whisking or whizzing in the food processor/blender) and combine, try not to overwork the pancake mix as it will leave the pancakes a little ‘flat’.

  3. Heat a large frying pan on medium heat. Add some butter or coconut oil to the pan and allow it to melt. Use a measuring cup to scoop and pour the mixture onto the pan and allow them cook on both sides until golden. The smaller you make these, the faster they cook and the easier they are to handle and flip.

  4. Continue cooking the pancakes in small batches until all the mix has been used up.

  5. When finished, serve the pancakes straight away.

  6. We garnished with fresh berries, coconut cream or yoghurt and optional, serve with a splash of pure maple syrup or drizzle with raw honey on top.

  7. Enjoy!
