Healthy Sundays - Gluten Free Pancakes-Three Ways

Back to the recipe series, this week wanted to share three delicious takes on pancakes, which are not only delicious but nutritious as well. I’ve mentioned previously how important food has become for tackling my health in the past months, and therefore have been spending time developing recipes that satisfy my hunger for all things food, while not harming my body and soul.


And since the weekend seems like a perfect time for a breakfast treat, here are three easy-peasy ways to gluten-free pancakes.

Coconut Pancakes


Ingredients:

*Makes around 12 pancakes


2 eggs

1 tbsp coconut flour

1 tbsp buckweath flour

Splash of milk (any nut milk you have on hand-I used rice)

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp vanilla powder

1/2 tbsp coconut oil


Mix and fry on medium heath. I had them with raspberry jam, fruits and roasted cashews.


Carrot Pancakes


Ingredients:

*Makes around 12 pancakes


2 grated carrots

3 eggs

1/2 cup coconut flour (or any other gluten free option-I added a tbsp buckweath flour)

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp turmeric

1/2 tsp black paper

salt to taste

2 tbsp coconut milk (any nut milk will do)

1 tsp coconut oil


Mix and fry! It's that easy.

I had them with poached salmon and a leafy salad (kale and basil), cucumber and sessame seeds.



Chocolate Pancakes


Ingredients:

*Makes around 12 pancakes


2 eggs

3 tbsp coconut flour

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp raw cocoa powder (unsweetened)

1tbsp raw cocoa nibs

1/2 cup coconut milk

1/2 tbsp coconut oil


*Add coconut sugar to taste, if you like your pancakes sweet.


Mix and fry on medium heat! I had them with a drizzle of honey, fresh raspberries and a newly discovered fruit - physalis. Physalis is a berry that resembles a cherry tomato and comes in a fancy papery ‘packaging’, that makes it an exciting piece of decoration for confectionary and cocktails. It is a rich source of vitamin C and antioxidants making it an ideal immune booster, great for current pandemic times! Physalis has anti-inflammatory properties as well as help fight cancerous cells, plus promotes bone health (which is another excellent reason for me to consume). Quite a special little tomatillo if you ask me. Flavour is a little more tart than a regular berry and tastes a bit citrusy, just try it!
