I trust that you’re all well. Over the weekend I posted a photo of these ahh-mazing pancakes on Instagram and I got really great feedbacks. I’m excited to be finally sharing the recipe you. You know how I love my pancakes, they are one of my favorite things to make and eat. I love creating new experiences each time I have them. This flavor combo is worth all the failed experiments. This recipe is da bomb. (In the words of my hood friend’s lol)
Coconut is a super food wonder; almost everything about it is useful and nourishing. I love that strong unmistakable scent that diffuses through the room when you cook with it. I can’t decide what I love most, the oil, milk, meat, powder, water? There is just so much to pick from. Do tell me what your favorite coconut products are; I’m sure you’re more decisive than me.
One of the best things about coconut is that it is gluten-free which paves the way to some of the tastiest gluten-free inventions. The combination of the coconut powder with gluten free flour really leaves for a nice and fluffy pancake that I’m sure you’ll love. Here, I layered mine with pomegranate jam, pistachios and fresh juicy pomegranates. The result was a mouthful of vibrant flavors and complementary textures. You’ll be blown away.
I really hope you enjoy this. I’ll be expecting your questions and comments.
Side note: Any tips on how to deseed a pomegranate without recasting the 2ND World war will be welcomed.
½ cup Gluten free flour
¾ cup coconut powder
½ cup plant milk (I used soy)
1 medium egg
2 tablespoons honey
¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon vanilla paste
Coconut oil – For frying
Just throw everything in a blender and blitz till you get a smooth batter. This is a gangster pancake.
Heat up a nonstick griddle to medium high. Grease lightly with the coconut oil and ladle about two tablespoons at a time for the perfect mini pancake.
Cook for 1-2 minutes on each side. Stack and slather with pomegranate jam, fresh pomegranates and chopped pistachio for a delightful breakfast. Sprinkle some coconut powder on top if you’re feeling extra fancy.
