A sweet gluten free pancake made with coconut flour and chia seeds. Full of fibre and nutritious.
I had made a savoury pancake with chia seeds, so needed to balance it with a sweet pancake. I am a big fan of the flavour combinations of coconut and lime so threw these into the bowl. Delicious! This makes an amazing breakfast or could be a lovely dessert. A tasty way to sneak some chia into your diet. I can always distract the Chief Taster with coconut!
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 4 eggs
- 1/2 cup desiccated coconut unsweetened
- 1/4 cup erythritol or other sweetener
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- Juice & grated rind of 1 lime
- Butter/coconut oil for frying
Whisk the eggs until frothy, then add the coconut milk, lime juice and rind and mix well.
Combine the dry ingredients and add to the egg mixture. Whisk until smooth.
Heat a frying pan with the butter/oil and spoon a few tablespoons of batter into the pan.
Cook on each side until golden brown. When bubbles are coming through the batter, that's the time to flip them over.
Eat and enjoy!
Makes about 4-6 pancakes.
