Maintaining a gluten, dairy and sugar free lifestyle shouldn’t mean missing out on life’s simple pleasures, one of the staples would have to be pancakes. I’m passionate about health and wellbeing, and believe that we all need to indulge in the things we love – moderation is the key. Pancakes is one of my greatest loves, however being strictly dairy, sugar and wheat free, for a long time pancakes were off the menu.
This morning I decided there had to be a simple alternative that would satisfy the need for pancakes – that was also an easy combination of natural ingredients and flavours. So, here it is!
- 1 egg
- 2 tbsp water (add more to thin out recipe)
- 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
- 1/2 cup almond meal
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/5 tsp ground cloves
- Cook in frypan with coconut oil
- Sprinkle with almond flakes & cinnamon to serve
- Drizzle with brown rice syrup or organic honey to sweeten
The vanilla extract gave the pancake a sweet aroma, while ground cloves is my staple for adding a nutty, caramel flavour to all desserts. Brown rice syrup would be my favourite sweetener as I find honey a bit too sweet.
