Take a good look at this picture.
Now tell me if this right there doesn't look sexy as? When it comes to nutrition I am all for it optimising your health. Yet there are many out there who simply view food as functional. They eat to get what nutrients they need from it, and that's all good if that works for you.
But I love food. For me its not just about whether Its nutritious, I'm all about the sensory experience. The pleasure you experience as your taste buds light up. Then there is the different textures of the food to delight your senses, the gorgeous aroma that overwhelms you in anticipation.
Yep. I love it.
Now if you don't know what I mean by this sensory experience, check out the short clip over on my instagram to get what I mean, and if you can relate, you'll definitely appreciate the clip.
But enough of the preamble. This weeks recipe lands firmly in that category I spoke of. You can have it as a light breakfast or a dessert, or just for the hell of it! How do you make them? I'm glad you asked. Lets jump to it!
Here's The Ingredients
Makes approximately 18 small pancakes (3 per serving)
2 eggs - whisked or Aquafaba (whisked chick pea juice)
400ml - coconut milk
2 tablespooons coconut oil/butter - melted
30g coconut flour
100g spelt or buckwheat flour
50g shredded/ grated coconut
1/2 teaspoon of salt
3 tablespoons of baking powder.
** 1 Scoop of protein powder - optional, just remember to adjust mixture consistency with additional coconut milk.
How To Make It
Whisk up all the ingredients in the order show. Do not add the baking powder until you are ready to cook.
Wipe a large heavy based frying pan with a touch of coconut oil, and heat the pan to a medium heat.
Using a tablespoon, spoon a portion of the batter into the hot pan. They should be roughly 3" in diameter. You should be able to cook about 3 at a time, depending on the size of you pan (best not to overcrowd the pan).
Cook on each side until golden brown.
Eat whilst hot, topped with your favourite topping.
The great thing about these is that you can also make a batch of these and pop them in the freezer. and toast them from frozen as and when needed. How cool is that?
Go on, get stuck in.
