Pancake recipe Feb 2016As it’s Pancake Day soon, I thought I’d give you a little recipe which is not only filling and healthy, but also clean-eating too!

 

For those of you who like me, are following a clean eating lifestyle nowadays, you’ll be pleased to know that even though you may be saying ‘no’ to preservatives, sugar and sweet treats…

 

…there’s no reason you can’t have a pancake on Shrove Tuesday.

 

So here goes:

Pancake tray of ingredients Feb 2016

INGREDIENTS

1 cup almond flour (ground almonds)

2 eggs

1/4 cup of water

1 teaspoon of vanilla essence

1 tablespoon of honey (or maple syrup)

1/4 teaspoon of salt

coconut oil for frying

 

METHOD

  1. Whisk all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl
  2. Melt coconut oil in fry pan
  3. Measure out approx half a cup of pancake mixture for each pancake (or thereabouts)
  4. Fry until golden (NB – mixture can soak up the oil quite quickly, so add a little more oil before frying each pancake)

 

SERVING SUGGESTIONS

If you’d like to add some ‘clean’ chocolate sauce and/or fruit like that displayed in the picture, here’s what you need to do:

 

CHOCOLATE SAUCE:

  1. Melt 2 Tablespoons of coconut oil or butter in a mug in the microwave
  2. Add 2 Tablespoons of Organic cocoa powder (I use Green and Blacks because it’s readily available from most supermarkets)
  3. Add a dash of Organic honey (or your choice of clean sweetener)
  4. Stir ingredients together until desired ‘sauce’ consistency

 

FRUIT:

  1. Chop a selection of fruit (low sugar fruits include: berries and cherries)
  2. Warm them through in a fry/saucepan (or just keep them fresh)
  3. Serve with pancake and/or with chocolate sauce above
