If you’ve checked out my chocolate-chip pancakes or pumpkin spice pancake recipe then you know my family loves a good pancake in the morning. I’m always playing around with different ingredients to give my kids (and myself) a nice flavor variation. If you’re looking for a new gluten-free, protein-packed breakfast idea then you must try this recipe from my friend Lisa Roukin, who has some serious drool-worthy food photos on her Instagram page. Drizzle these pancakes with some maple syrup and you’ll be transported into blueberry pancake heaven.
Grain Free Blueberry Pancakes Recipe
Grain Free Blueberry Pancakes
- 4 large eggs beaten
- 3 tablespoons organic coconut flour
- 1 large banana mashed
- 2 cups blueberries
- 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or 1 vanilla pod deseeded
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- oil spray
- salt pinch
- 1/4 cup blueberries
- agave nectar honey or maple syrup (optional)
- cashew butter optional
Put all the ingredients, except for the blueberries and coconut oil, into a bowl and blend together with a hand stick blender.
Add the blueberries to the pancake mixture and stir in.
Spray your non-stick frying pan with the oil and heat over a medium heat.
Once the oil is hot, take 3/4 ladle of the pancake mixture and pour into the pancake pan.
Cooking until golden brown on the underside (approx. 1 minute), then flip over and cook until golden brown on the other side (about 30 seconds).
Once you've cooked all 9 pancakes, stack them back on top of each other in a set of 3 to warm through in the hot pan and flip over to warm the other side.
Serve warm with a drizzle of maple syrup and blueberries.
Lisa's Tip: After you have poured in the pancake mixture, shake the pan gently to ensure the mixture is evenly spread. It’s hard to believe that you don’t need flour, milk or refined sugar to create a lovely, light and kid-approved pancake. Although delightful, don’t be expecting your run-of-the-mill carb-filled pancake. These have more of an eggy crepe-like texture, which is equally appealing. If you’re used to eating clean healthy foods, you will more than likely LOVE these. Low-calorie, high-protein, gluten-free and wheat-free…. what’s not to love? Not only do they make a quick and easy breakfast, but they’re also the perfect pre or post-workout fuel, you can even add your favourite protein powder.
