RECIPE: Content Alternative Pancakes

Posted in Content Beauty

Who doesn’t love a fragrant pile of freshly baked pancakes? We most certainly do! So to celebrate Pancake Day, we’ll be whipping up our favourite delicious recipe for breakfast to put a spring in our step!

We love coming up with new ways to use raw foods and superfoods, from organic turmeric as a natural face mask, to blending and mixing our products to suit our skins’ mood. This botanical alchemy approach also extends to the organic food and supplements we stock. This week we’ve been playing in the kitchen with alternative recipes for pancakes including a chocolate banana version and a turmeric oat pancake recipe. Trust us – they are good, although maybe not the texture most pancake fans will be used to. If you’re a fellow clean-eating foodie, try the recipes below.


Chocolate Almond and Banana Pancakes

This is one for those with a sweet tooth. Although there is no refined sugar, the banana gives sweetness and both the chocolate elements contain coconut sugar.

INGREDIENTS

Serves 2

1 ripe banana
1 egg
2 tbsp of chocolate nut butter
1 sachet of Four Sigmatic Hot Cacao with Reishi (optional)
Essence of Eden Premium Virgin Coconut Oil
A pinch of cinnamon
A pinch of sea or pink Himalayan salt
A dash of vanilla

METHOD

Blend all ingredients together until the batter is a liquid texture. Warm some coconut oil in a pan and add spoonfuls of the batter. Flip when bubbles appear on the surface and cook the other side. We like to serve with berries and coconut yoghurt.


Turmeric, Coconut and Oat Pancakes

This recipe uses water as the liquid rather than milk. The water actually combines with WunderWorkshop Instantly Golden Turmeric Latte Powder, which is made from a base of coconut powder to give the a pancakes a vibrant yellow colour – plus, of course, a dose of one of our favourite superfoods. Add the banana if you want them slightly sweetened, otherwise they are on the savoury side – and don’t taste of turmeric!

INGREDIENTS

Serves 4

1 ½ cup of rolled oats (or buckwheat flakes)
2 tbsp of WunderWorkshop Instantly Golden Turmeric Latte Powder
Essence of Eden Premium Virgin Coconut Oil
1 egg
1 banana (to sweeten, optional)
1 cup of filtered water (or alternative milk, although remember the water mixes with the latte mix to form coconut milk)
½ tsp baking powder (gluten-free if needed)
A pinch of sea or pink Himalayan salt
½ tsp of vanilla

METHOD

  1. Blend oats or flakes until ground to a fine flour consistency.
  2. Combine oat flour, salt, baking powder in a mixing bowl. Mix well.
  3. Combine egg, water and vanilla in a small bowl and mix well.
  4. Mash the banana if using.
  5. Stir the liquid mixture into dry mixture a little at a time as you will be activating the WunderWorkshop latte powder
  6. Mix well and stir in the mashed banana if using. Allow to rest for five minutes.
  7. Heat a large pan on medium heat and add a little coconut oil to stop the pancakes from sticking.
  8. When hot, drop in spoonfuls, or pour about ¼ a cup of the batter to make larger pancakes.
  9. Cook until bubbles form on surface of pancake. Turn over and cook until lightly browned.
