So Simple Pancakes

Similar to another version of coconut flour pancakes that I make but even more simple. Even less ingredients. And less sugar. Boring perhaps, but boring can mean comfort for me sometimes. And I've had a long day. One of those days where Van Morrison's 'Day's Like This' both makes you smile and cry. Wow OK anyway, I won't divulge the details of that part here ;)

These take all of about 6 minutes to make- talk about an easy primal dinner... breakfast?... Whichever meal you want :)

So Simple Pancakes

2 eggs, organic cage-free
1/2 cup water
1 tsp ground flaxseed
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
Pinch of sea salt
Pinch of rosemary (optional)


Add a bit of macadamia oil (extra virgin olive or coconut oil would work as well) to a pan and heat on low-medium.

Whip the eggs, water and flaxseed thoroughly. Add in the coconut flour and baking soda and mix until a smooth batter starts to form. This can be tough with coconut flour so just keep stirring :) Add in the salt.
Pour two pancakes into the heated pan and heat until the bottom side begins to harden a bit ~4 minutes (these don't 'bubble' up like other pancakes so you have to keep an eye on them). Flip over, turn the heat down to low and 'smoosh' down a tad and cook for about another 2 minutes. Flip once more and cook about another minute and then remove.

I put the rosemary in one to test and it was really good. I'd likely add more next time. These are kind of like a pancake-bread with a thicker, fluffier consistency.

I'm not sure if it was the flaxseed, but these held together better than my other coconut flour pancakes so I think I'll experiment with these even more, adding in different herbs or fruit. 

Now, I made these just for myself. This recipe could be easily doubled or tripled.

Enjoy ;)
