A hearty healthy version of pancakes that went over well in our house! Who knew a coconut could make such a delicious pancake…
My hubby LOVES sweet treats! With him being diagnosed a few years back with type 2 diabetes, those sweet treats have become fewer and fewer as we continue to change our eating habits. We do like to indulge every now and again and we feel better about indulging in some sweet breakfast treats when we can do it wisely for our lifestyle.
This simple pancake recipe is grain free and makes more sense for what we want to achieve with our eating habits. They’re also delicious so we don’t feel like we’re missing out when we want pancakes. In fact my 8 year old loves them and didn’t even ask if they were ‘healthy’!
Mix together: 1/4 cup coconut flour, 1 TB coconut sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, pinch of salt and 1/4 tsp baking powder and set aside.
In a second bowl mix: 4 eggs, 1/4 cup almond milk (or milk of your choice), 1 tsp vanilla and 3 TB coconut oil (melted).
Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix well removing any lumps. Let the batter sit for about 10 minutes while the coconut flour absorbs the liquids.
Cook them like regular pancakes! I used coconut oil on my griddle and cooked a little less than 1/4 cup per pancake for about a minute and a half to two minutes per side.
They are thin so you can eat like 12 and feel no guilt! This makes about 10 pancakes so I doubled it to make sure I could have 12 to myself!
