Light and Delicate Pancake

It is really funny how the first thing that people comment on when hearing we follow a grain free diet is pancakes, how can we survive without them?  Very good question, as we asked ourselves that same question on many an occasion.  To be honest I did have to kiss a load of frogs to end up with this excellent recipe, to the point that my family were starting to accept that they were never going to see another pancake in their home again.

This pancake, is so light and delicate, yet does not fall apart when flipped as with most of my previous attempts.  My best is that it can be loaded with gorgeous fillings without tearing, that makes it pass the test in my eyes.  

The easiest way to make them is simply put all the ingredients into a blender and give it a whizz, my Nutribullet is the bomb for this…

Place all the ingredients into one container

pancake 1



Blend at a high speed

Pancake 2


Cook on a high heat, in a non-stick pan 

Pancake 3


Recipe makes between 10-12, depending on thickness.  

For a great prebiotic, add some green banana’s fried in grass-fed butter, coconut yoghurt or whipped coconut cream and some room temperature berries (for some reason they are just much sweeter), and you are guaranteed to have an awesome day!

    1. Hi Sandy, thanks so much for your great feedback, sadly I don’t because here in the UK it is easy to buy really great coconut yoghurt in the supermarkets. A great alternative is to make up whipped coconut cream, the recipe is on my site of you have not seen it already. I also find the easiest thing with coconut cream is to open it, whip it up with vanilla and raw honey, then pop it onto the fridge to set, that way it will have a yoghurt like consistency and ready when you need it xx
