After a quiet weekend here, I’m ready to get back into the swing of things this week! We’ve got a three day weekend coming up so I’m more excited than ever for Friday. We’re also expecting a big snow fall again, fingers crossed for a snow day!
This weekend I was so excited to finally shoot with the amazingly talented Edelle Kenny, you may have seen some snaps of Edelle working her magic on my Snapchat (niamhos21). I do love shooting my own recipes, but at the end of the day, sometimes these things are best left to the professionals! I am so happy with how everything turned out.
I don’t think there is a more appropriate day of the year to share a pancake recipe than Pancake Tuesday, but in this case it’s the Monday beforehand to give everyone time to stock up on the ingredients. 🙂 I used two forms of flour, because it was an experiment that actually worked well. I used coconut flour and oat flour. The coconut flour is quite dry, so I decided to mix it up by blending some of my
- 1/2 cup of oat flour
- 1/2 cup of coconut flour
- 1 cup of almond milk
- 2 eggs
- 1 scoop of vanilla whey protein
- Coconut oil to fry
- Blend your oats in the blender to get your oat flour (I used Flahavan's as usual)
- In a mixing bowl, add all of your dry ingredients
- Add in a glug of milk, followed by your 2 eggs
- Mix it well, and continue to add more milk until you have a nice and wet batter (If you don't need to use all of the milk, don't!)
- Heat up your pan and add a teaspoon of coconut oil
- Pour out some of your batter onto the pan to get the shape and thickness that you want to achieve
- Fry on one side for a few minutes, or until you start to see bubbles in the middle, and the edges are firming up
- Make sure to keep shaking the pancake around so it doesn't stick to the pan
- When flipping to fry the other side, try and make sure to add some more coconut oil in between (I slid my pancakes onto the biggest spatula I could find, rested it on a plate, added my extra coconut oil, and then flipped it over to fry the other side)
You can top off your protein pancakes with some different options. I used mixed berries with some Fage Greek Yoghurt for first batch, and then Fage, maple syrup, and some coconut flakes for the second batch. You can literally add whatever you please though. Tomorrow I plan on adding some coconut sugar and lemon to bring me back to my childhood when my Mum would make my sister and I the classic crepe style pancakes, and we would literally pour the whole sugar bowl on when she wasn’t looking!
Hope everyone enjoys their pancakes tomorrow, no matter how healthy or unhealthy they may be!
