While Lane was in Ranger school I developed a Monday morning ritual. I would make pancakes and watch Sunday night's Downton Abbey. Although Downton isn't airing right now, I still make the pancakes. I use a fantastic recipe from a website I adore called Primal Palate.
1/4 Cup Coconut Flour
1/4 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
1 Tablespoon Water
Cinnamon and Nutmeg to taste
I modified this slightly today, because I am out of vanilla extract. I also like to use almond milk instead of water. What I love about this recipe is that it is mostly egg. Lane says they taste more like french toast than pancakes because of the egg. I think these are a great choice for breakfast, because you get a ton of protein from the egg and fiber from the coconut flour.
I just mix everything in together, but it is important to note that it takes quite a while to get everything to blend smoothly. I would use a hand-mixer, but I hate washing that thing so I just rough it by hand.
Batter before being sufficiently mixed
Closer to the right smooth consistency
Once the batter is smooth ( meaning no lumps of flour). Pour 2 Tablespoons of batter onto a non-stick pan heated to medium-high heat.
Ignore my dirty cast iron pan from making scrambled eggs.
Add banana and cook until no bubbles are coming through the top layer. I am a terrible judge of this so I usually just use a fork to check how brown they are by pulling up the side.
Flip over and cook for another three minutes ( approximately)
I will sometimes indulge with some pure maple syrup. Y'all after you have had this syrup, nothing else will be good enough.
These are so delicious and good for you. I like them better than conventional pancakes. I have made them with other fruits as well as pecans.
Little change like this are such a great way to cut out some white flour and add in more protein and fiber. Coconut flour can be a little pricey, but you can find it online for a reasonable price. I would love to hear if any of y'all try these.
