Coconut Pancakes

Saturday, 9 May 2015

I spend far too much time looking at food on Instagram, waaaay too much time. Pancakes are my latest love and i'll spend many a happy hour marveling over peoples towering pancake stacks. There are loads of gluten and dairy free recipes out there but I found many that I tried were quite tiring to make with lots of fiddly ingredients and the added hassle of having to stand and flip.

So I've created a back to basics pancake recipe that is SO EASY to make, honestly I can be eating pancakes in less than 5 mins when I get these on the go.

The ingredients are also super simple and after a few goes you wont need a recipe at all!



To serve two: makes about 8 pancakes

Ingredients
2 ripe bananas
2 eggs
2 tbsp of buckwheat flour
1/2 tsp baking powder (use gluten free if needed)
2 tbsp of desiccated coconut
2 - 4 tbsp coconut milk
coconut oil for frying

Method
  1. Turn on your oven to a low temperature (this will be used to keep the pancakes warm) 
  2. In a bowl mash the bananas with a fork. Add in the eggs and whisk well. 
  3. To this mixture add in the flour, baking powder and desiccated coconut and mix.
  4. Add 2 tbsp of coconut milk and mix to form a thick batter, add more milk if needed. 
  5. In a frying pan heat 1 tsp of coconut oil then add dollops of batter, about 2 tbsp per pancake. 
  6. When the pancakes start to bubble flip them over.
  7. Store in a plate in your warm oven while you make the next batch
If you are energy challenged like me you may wish to have a quick rest after step 4!

To save time and energy you can also just make one massive pancake - just fill the base of your frying pan with the mixture and you'll have a tasty breakfast in no time.


I'd love to hear if you make my coconut pancakes, happy cooking.

  2. Coconut oil infiltrates the skin further than the normal healthy skin restorative due to its little sub-atomic weight.
