Pureed raspberries with banana, seeds, nuts and maple syrup

Basic Recipe: This is the basic recipe that you can make at the start of the week.

1 cup coconut flour

1/2 cup buckwheat flour

2 free ranges eggs

Filtered water (enough to make a moist dough)

Additions to the basic recipe: Add different flavours to your mix by adding grated beetroot, grated sweet potato, grated carrot, cinnamon, chia seeds, apple, flaked almonds or coconut flakes as examples.

Method: This is a small pancake so once you have made your dough you just need to an amount to form a small ball which you can then flatten in your hands before placing into a pan with some oil. I usually use olive oil or coconut oil. Just a small amount. Gently cook until golden then flip over. A guide to the size of the pancake is to make it just bigger than an egg ring when flat and then the toppings fill out the meal.

Toppings: This is where you give your pancake a personality by adding fruit, nuts, seeds, coconut flakes and a natural sugar. I activate my nuts and seeds and keep them in tubs in the fridge and freezer so they are always on hand. This part of the meal preparation takes just a few minutes. I like to use either organic maple syrup or organic raw honey. They have a different flavour but ensure it is just a teaspoon. Such a quick meal to make and you can really make it look pretty and impress everyone with your skills.
