Apple and Cinnamon Pancakes

June 26, 2017

Pancakes, pancakes … I could have a blog just about pancakes. I promise that over time, there will be more than  a few pancake recipes. I really like pancakes.

It is very important for food to be tasty.  Eating for me is one of the important pleasures in life. When creating recipes, I always research what herbs and spices are compatible with what foods. For example, in this recipe I matched apple with cinnamon which, in my opinion, go very well together.

Although I love pancakes, I don’t  ignore the effect of flour in dishes on body composition. I replaced plain white flour with wholegrain spelt flour, which is easier to digest. Spelt is higher in protein and more nutritionally beneficial which is not the case with wheat flour[1].

 

Serves 1

  • 1 coarsely grated apple
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons of natural yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons of wholegrain spelt flour
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • a pinch of salt
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil

 

Mix the egg, yoghurt and grated apple together. Then add all the remaining ingredients into the mixture.

Heat the coconut oil in a frying pan and cook pancakes over a medium heat for several minutes on each side, until golden brown.

Serve with honey, fresh berries and chopped toasted hazelnuts.

Did I mention that I really like pancakes? Enjoy!
