Breakfast pancake with banana and walnuts (Paleo)

2014-01-12 07.21.14

A really sweet and satisfying pancake which could be topped with a different fruit such as strawberries. The toppings l have used compliment each other beautifully and this meal is very filling as the pancake is heavy and dense. This pancake utilises chick pea (besan) flour which l purchased after reading the wonderful book ‘Wheat Belly-Dr William Davis’.

Ingredients for the pancake:

1 cup of besan flour

1 cup of coconut flour

1 cup of LSA (keep this in the fridge)

2 small carrots (skin on, washed and grated)

1 small green apple (skin on, cored and grated)

4 free range eggs

1 teaspoon cinnamon

Filtered water

Method:

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Add enough water that the mixture looks moist. It is a heavy mix and therefore when you spoon it into the pan it needs to be shaped into a pancake with the back of the spoon. Cook in a pan with extra virgin olive oil until nice and crispy, then turn with a spatula. It will hold together well and the mix keeps in the fridge for several days. I like to make recipes that will last for a few days to decrease the workload as cooking everything from scratch is very labour intensive.

Topping:

Place your pancake on a plate and top with a banana nicely sliced, some black chia seeds, a handful of activated walnuts and a nice drizzle of organic maple syrup. Delicious!
