...they are gluten free too!
Originally, these were made with sliced apple, and served with a date paste, because I made them for breakfast and didn't have an apple though, I found some strawberries and drizzled over some agave syrup!
If you don't have steva, you can use a different natural sweetner, or a few teaspoons of agave syrup.
Dairy Free Protein Strawberry Pancakes
(Serves 1, about 260 calories)
20g coconut flour (about 3 tbsp)
1 tbsp vanilla protein (a little less than half a scoop)
1 heaped tbsp flaxseed
1/2 tsp baking powder
A tiny pinch of salt
3 egg whites
1 tbsp unsweetned apple sauce
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp unsweetned hazelnut milk, or other milk of choice
1 packet stevia
1/2 tsp cinnamon (or more if you like!)
2 strawberries, sliced (or 1/4 apple, thinly sliced)
2 tbsp date paste or a good drizzle of agave syrup
- If you're making the date paste, soak a few pitted dates in hot water for a few minutes before whizzing with some of the water using a stick blender. Add a little bit more water for a more runny consistency.
- Now for the pancakes, mix all the dry ingredients and then make a well in the middle. Tip all the "wet" ingredients apart form the fruit, in and stir well. Let the batter sit for a few minutes.
- Heat a non-stick frying pan, and have about two tablespoons' worth of batter in to make a pancake. Fry on low heat for about a minute, before topping with a few pieces of strawberries (or a slice of apple) and cook for another minute before flipping over. Careful so the fruits doesn't catch the pan! Cook on the other side for a further two minutes, until it's cooked!
This recipe will make about three lovely, thick pancakes, mmmm
Next time, I will replace the stevia with a tablespoon of agave nectar or honey and see how they turn out!
