Blueberry coconut pancakes

I never understood why would anyone put perfectly fresh and sweet blueberries in the pancake batter. That sounded completely irrational. Cooking fresh berries. Right.

I was probably really hungry the last time I went to the store. I came home with almost a kilo of blueberries. So, I decided to make some blueberry pancakes… OMG! When those blueberrues start popping in your mouth it’s like…

From now on I’m having my pancakes with blueberries!

Ingredients (makes aprox 11 – 12 flapjacks):

  • 1 big egg
  • 20 g rolled oats
  • 10 g coconut flour
  • 10 g coconut flakes
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla protein (optional)*
  • 1/2 Tbsp linseed
  • 2 Tbsp Perfect Fit (sweetener)*
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • milk
  • 1 big handful fresh blueberries
  • coconut oil for baking
  • greek yogurt & fresh blueberries to garnish

* I make my own vanilla protein mix: ground vanilla & 50% rice – 50% pea protein
* I’m using Perfect Fit sweetener as I can’t eat sugar. It replaces 100% sugar and 50% fat (avaliable in Spar and VitaCare)

Preparation:

  1. Put rolled oats, coconut flour, coconut flakes and linseed in a cofee grinder and mix to get a flour like consistency.
  2. Transfer to a bowl, add Perfect Fit sweetener and baking powder and mix.
  3. Add an egg an mix altogether until smooth. Start gradually adding milk – the batter shouldn’t be too liquid. Add fresh blueberries.
  4. Set aside for 5 – 10 mins.
  5. Spread some coconut oil over the pan. Use 1 Tbsp of batter for each pancake.
  6. Serve with greek yogurt and fresh blueberries.
