Grain Free Blueberry Pancakes

27th February 2017

A large dollop of Cashew Butter to top these pancakes off and I am sorted! Great post workout or for a healthy breakfast

{makes 9 pancakes}

ingredients

4 large eggs, beaten

3 tbsp. organic coconut flour

1 large banana, mashed

200g blueberries

1 tsp. vanilla bean paste or 1 vanilla pod, deseeded

1 tsp. baking powder

oil spray

salt, pinch

garnish

50g blueberries

agave nectar, honey or maple syrup (optional)

cashew butter (optional)

Preparation time – 20 mins, cooking time – 20 mins

Put all the ingredients except for the blueberries into a bowl and blend together with a hand stick blender. Once blended add the blueberries to the pancake mixture and stir in by hand.

Spray you pancake or non stick frying pan with the oil and heat over a medium heat.

Once the oil is hot, take ¾ ladle of the pancake mixture and pour into the pancake pan.

Cook until golden brown on the underside (approx. 1 minute), then flip over and cook until golden brown on the other side (about 30 seconds).

Once you’ve cooked all 9 pancakes, stack them back on top of each other in a set of 3 to warm through in the hot pan and flip over to warm the other side.

Serve warm with a drizzle of cashew butter, blueberries and syrup.

Yum…

LISA’S TIP – After you have poured in the pancake mixture, shake the pan gentle to ensure the mixture is evenly spread. It’s hard to believe that you don’t need flour, milk or refined sugar to create a lovely, light and kid-approved pancake. Although delightful, don’t be expecting your run-of-the-mill carb-filled pancake. These have more of an eggy crepe-like texture, which is equally appealing. 
If you’re used to eating clean healthy foods, you will more than likely LOVE these. Low-calorie, high-protein, gluten-free and wheat-free…. what’s not to love? Not only do they make a quick and easy breakfast, but they’re also the perfect pre or post-workout fuel, you can even add your favourite protein powder.
