COCONUT, QUINOA PANCAKES WITH RASPBERRY SAUCE

September’s here, and back to the fall routine we go!

I had a fabulous summer, and hope you all did as well!  I took a break from the computer because it was so fabulous, but I’m back and have a lot of recipes and adventures that I will be sharing with you!!

This first one seems to be fitting, given the time of year.  I love pancakes!  I have created this recipe after trying many different ways to do gluten-free pancakes.  They are totally Yummy! Filling! AND… Good for you!

Hope you try them and enjoy!!

COCONUT, QUINOA PANCAKES with RASPBERRY SAUCE

You can add berries like I did or make them plain, either way delicious!

2 tbsp Coconut Flour

2 tbsp Quinoa Flour

2 tbsp Oat Bran

1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp Sugar ( I use Coconut Palm Sugar)

1/2 tsp Baking Powder

1 large egg

1/2 cup + a little more ( to get right consistency) coconut or almond milk

Coconut Oil, for cooking

* Berries

Makes 4, 4 inch pancakes

In a bowl, add all dry ingredients together and mix well

In a large measuring cup add liquid and egg and mix well

Add dry ingredients into measuring cup with liquid and mix well, that way you can pour directly onto heated surface ( adjust liquid to pouring consistency)

Heat griddle or pan to med/med high heat

Add Coconut Oil and pour into 4 inch circles

Watch carefully and adjust heat

Cook until the top thickens and you see small bubbles

Flip, cook for a few seconds more (should be golden brown)

Plate and smooth with Butter, Berry Sauce or Maple syrup

RASPBERRY SAUCE

1 cup or more Raspberries ( or Blueberries) fresh or frozen,

2 tbsp Butter

Maple syrup or Maple syrup Flakes, to taste

Walnuts, chopped

In a small frying pan on med heat, melt Butter and add Berries

Heat till the Berries are warm and start to fall apart, blending in with the Butter

Remove from heat and place in a bowl

Use to spread over and in between Pancakes and add a little Maple syrup

Top off with chopped Walnuts and enjoy a decadent Breakfast or Brunch!

Mangia!

About Angie's Food Adventures

I thought I could cook in my early twenties, then I found out that Mac and Cheese and Ham Steaks wasn't really cooking. Then I met some vegetarians and tried that for a while. Learned a lot. In my thirties I started craving my Italian roots so I started really paying attention to family recipes. By the time I was 40 I had gained about 20 lbs and had my first gallbladder attack. Note to self: simple carbs are not for me! That's when my journey into healthy eating began. Since then, I've read and researched and read....I've tried a lot of diets and lifestyles and I can honestly say, I've finally established my own way of cooking and preparing food that agrees with me, still keeping to my roots and beyond!
