These pancakes were my absolute go-to when I was working at healing my gut and I couldn't eat grains for a little while. They were so good that they have now become a big part of my recipe repertoire. These pancakes are grain-free, sugar-free, gluten-free, dairy-free but most definitly not taste free!! The coconut flour has a gorgeous sweet taste and makes the pancakes incredibly light and easy to digest. They are super easy to make and make an excellent brunch or pudding!
4 tbsp coconut yoghurt (I use 'The Coconut Collaborative')
3 organic/free-range eggs
1 tbsp coconut oil (melted)
½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp sea salt
45g (⅓ cup) coconut flour (I used the brand 'Biona'.)
Coconut yoghurt, berry compote and almond butter
A couple of squares of dark chocolate (chopped) and banana slices
MAKES: 12-15 MINI PANCAKES TOTAL TIME: 30 MINS
First, whisk together the yoghurt, eggs and melted coconut oil until smooth and creamy.
Add in the baking powder, baking soda, salt and coconut flour and whisk again until no lumps remain. *I've noticed, from making these over the years, that different brands of coconut flour create a slightly different texture - some make it really thick! The consistency of this batter should be smooth and run off the spoon so you may need to add some water or milk to thin or some more coconut flour to thicken if needed.*
Heat a tsp of coconut oil in a frying pan over a low/medium heat. Spoon in a tbsp of batter per pancake and shape into a small circle with the back of the spoon. Repeat to make another 3 or 4 pancakes, depending on the size of your pan. Cook until the edges look as though they are firming up and bubbles are appearing on the top (around 3/3.5 mins), gently flip and cook for another 2 mins on the other side. Keep them warm until all the pancakes are cooked.
I personally love these pancakes stacked up with a dollop of coconut yoghurt, a drizzle of almond butter and some berry compote (just boil a couple of handfuls of frozen berries with a dash of maple syrup and a splash of water until soft), but some chopped dark chocolate and sliced banana is also delicious!
