Banting Pancakes Recipe…

 

 

In South Africa we call these flapjacks. In the States they are called pancakes. Whatever you call them they are truly delicious. We had them for lunch yesterday and they were a hit.

 

Coconut Pancakes with Strawberry Jam and Cream

 

Ingredients:

 

4 eggs

1/4 cup coconut flour

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 Tbs xylitol

1/4 cup yogurt or cream (I used cream and added more coconut flour)

1/2 tsp baking powder

 

Beat eggs and cream or yogurt together then add all the other ingredients. Let it sit for a little while and make the strawberry jam. If the pancake mix seems too runny, add a little coconut flour.

 

Strawberry Jam

 

1 punnet of strawberries

2 Tbs xylitol (or to taste)

1/2 cup of water

 

Cut up the strawberries and put all ingredients in a saucepan and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes. Check the water level and add a little if needed. Break up the strawberries and simmer a little longer until you get a good jam-like consistency. Let it cool down a little.

 

Heat a little coconut oil in a pan and drop pancake mixture by the dessert spoonful into pan. When underside is done, flip and cook the other side. Spread with jam and serve with cream.
