Delicious gluten free pancakes (with coconut flour)

I have blogged about my love for pancakes before but if you are trying to skip the sugar, carbs and gluten, they are not always the best choice for a weekend breakfast or brunch. So I have been scouring the web for inspiration.

delicious coconut flour pancakes! 

This tried and tested recipe is absolutely scrumptious and packed with fibre and protein. Plus they are so easy to make! If you are unsure of coconut flour, it is a great substitute for the regular white stuff but healthy! I bought mine from my local Holland and Barrett but you can get it in most health food stores.

I've been using this coconut flour 

You will need:

2-3 tbsp of nut butter (I used cashew)
½ cup egg whites
½ cup of vanilla protein powder
2 tbsp coconut flour
½ tsp of baking powder
½ - 1 cup of almond milk (depending how thick you want them)

In a large bowl, whisk all the ingredients together until you have a smooth batter

excuse the dressing gown! 

make sure you don't leave lumps 

In a non-stick pan, spray with a little oil 
(make sure the pan is hot)

Ladle a spoon full of batter into the frying pan, use the back of the spoon if you need to circle and flatten the pancakes.
As it is cooking, bubbles will start to appear in the batter. Each side will take about 2-3 minutes. 

use a spoon to make the pancakes circular 

Once one side is cooked, flip them over and cook them on the other side!

Don't try to flip them too early...

...otherwise they'll break! 

I had mine with sliced banana, mixed berries and a generous drizzle of agave nectar and cinnamon. 

nothing beats a delicious hot stack of pancakes 

The Boy got a bit excited with the concept of 'toppings' and layered up so much stuff, I could hardly see his pancakes under the mountain! 

pancakes, "the Boy" stylee! 

Experiment with toppings, such as chopped fruit, warm berries, nuts, honey and dried fruit!
