An easy & quick paleo breakfast idea the kids will love ...
You know when you just fancy something different for breakfast? But equally you don't want to spend ages in the kitchen?
This is for you ... 5-ingredient Paleo pancakes. Dead easy to make and very, very easy to demolish a whole stack of them! I usually make a batch for the kids at the weekend (when I remember!).
You can decorate them with whatever you fancy, berries are my usual go-to or some chocolate chips and maple syrup if I'm feeling decadent.
|5 medium eggs|
|2 large bananas|
|1/2 tsp cinnamon|
|1 tsp vanilla extract|
|2 tbsp coconut flour|
|1 tsp bicarbonate of soda (optional)|
|Coconut oil for frying|
1. Mash the bananas in a large bowl
2. Crack the eggs into the same bowl and beat together
3. Stir in the coconut flour, vanilla extract, cinnamon (and bicarbonate of soda if using) - it should be a fairly thick batter (add a little more coconut flour if too thin but little by little)
4. Heat a little coconut oil in a pancake pan (or frying pan) over a low-medium heat
5. Add a large spoonful of the mixture into the pan, then repeat 2 more times, each time into space, trying not to let them overlap. The batter should spread to an approx 8-10cm circle.
6. Cook gently for a couple of minutes until you see bubbles on the top of each pancake, then gently flip them and cover for 1 more minute on the other side.
7. Serve 2 per person and pile with e.g. goats milk or coconut yoghurt and berries, dark chocolate chips, maple syrup, honey.
Add more or less cinnamon if you are or aren't a fan - 1/2 teaspoon will give a very subtle hint of cinnamon.
Note that coconut flour is dehydrated so go easy with it, a little goes a long way and your batter can easily go from runny to thick very quickly. It always takes a few minutes after adding it to see the full effect of it re-hydrating, so don;t rush the batter-making at this step. Different brands of coconut flour react differently so take it easy and add it little by little.
