Make ahead tip: I sometimes keep some of the batter for the next day, that way I don't have to do much for breakfast except heat up a pan and cut up some fresh fruit. I can imagine that this would be great to make the night before a weekend morning too! Enjoy!
(Serves about 4)
What you need:
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
3 eggs (egg substitute would likely work here, but I haven't tried it)
3 tablespoons of coconut oil (or grass-fed butter, or ghee)
1/4 cup, plus 2 tablespoons of milk (or almond milk, or coconut milk)
1 tablespoon honey (or maple syrup, or coconut sugar)
1 tablespoon vanilla
Coconut oil or butter for cooking
What to do:
In a small bowl, combine coconut flour, salt, and baking soda, and set aside.
In a medium sized bowl, combine eggs, oil, milk, honey, and vanilla until well mixed. Add dry ingredients to egg mixture, and blend well. Let this sit for about 5 minutes to allow the coconut flour to absorb the ingredients.
Pre-heat a pan on medium heat. When batter is ready and pan is heated, add some coconut oil (or butter) and making sure that the pan does not get too hot, adjust your temperature accordingly.
Carefully place a tablespoon or so of batter for each pancake (if your batter is too thick, try adding a little more milk). Cook the pancakes until they are golden brown on one side, and then flip them over and finish cooking on the other side (about 2-3 minutes of cooking on each side). Be gentle with these guys, they are not as forgiving as gluten pancakes and may crumble slightly if the batter is missing moisture. And, unlike wheat flour pancakes, they don't "tell" you when they are ready by producing little bubbles all over. Watch for colour and smell.
When your pancakes are ready, give them some love! Add berries, cherries, peaches, pan-fried apples and cinnamon, bananas and walnuts, or whatever combination you can dream up. May I also suggest some maple syrup to top that off? Or possibly some maple butter? (Maple butter recipe soon to be available.)
