“Making banana pancakes, pretend like it’s the weekend now…”
My usual wintery breakfast is oats with fruit or eggs, quick, straightforward, nutritious and easy to stumble through the preparation before coffee. But not today. I bought some coconut flour a few weeks ago and it’s been burning a hole in my cupboard ever since.
I saw many a beautiful recipes out there in my research but when it comes down to it I love the spontaneous creativity that comes from improvisational cooking.
And sometimes it works out…
Tate gave these a double ‘wow’, just one of the reasons why “it’s always more fun to share with everyone”. 🙂
These pancakes made us feel like “we got everything we need right here and everything we need is enough”.
Not that this is a recipe 😉 but I thought I’d share what I did.
- 2 tablespoons coconut flour
- 2 tablespoons oats
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- 2 tablespoons ground flax seeds
- 3 eggs
- 3 tablespoons yogurt
- 1/3 of a big banana
- pinch of salt, baking soda, ground ginger, and cinnamon
- water to thin
Baking soda begins leavening when combined with moisture, so I would suggest mixing it with with other powdery dry items and gentle stirring them in after the blending to get more rise.
What do you mean? That the baking soda was activated too early?
May I borrow two tablespoons of flour please 😉
Girl, you can have 4 tablespoons if you want! 😉
These look yummy! A bag of coconut flour has just been sitting in my fridge after only using a bit to bake with. Certainly some will be used this weekend to make these. Loved the Jack Johnson quotes!
Love coconut flour, need to buy more asap. Its awesome for grain free living!
I have a better idea. You’re such a wonderful photographer. Choose one of your fabulous close-up shots and turn them into notecards, a calendar or even a framed print. There are also many on-line options for original photography gifts these days.
Oops! That comment was supposed to go with the gift request post!
