Walnut Pancakes with Macadamia & Raw Cacao Butter
This recipe works well on a Sunday morning, when you have time on your hands. I used walnut flour, but feel free to change to ground almonds or coconut flour. It is a very simple recipe with delicious flavours. The macadamia & raw cacao butter is rich and chocolaty, like a homemade Nutella without all the added sugar. The recipe is gluten-free, wheat-free and dairy-free.
Walnut Flour Pancakes
(Makes 6-7 pancakes)
2/3 cup walnut flour
3 free-range eggs
¼ tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla powder
1 tsp rice syrup/honey (you can add more if you have a sweet tooth, but be sugar-conscious or substitute the rice syrup with half of a banana)
Drop of almond milk/coconut milk
Walnut flour: I make my own walnut flour using the food processor. Add 100g walnuts to the processor. Blitz until crumbly texture forms, similar to ground almonds. Be careful not to overdo it or it will turn into butter. Viola! Walnut flour. Store leftover flour in an airtight container.
Next add ingredients to the food processor, and combine. In a 16cm (small pancake) frying pan, add ½ tsp extra virgin coconut oil; once melted, pour the pancake mixture into the pan. Cook on both sides until golden brown. Remove from the pan; serve with raspberries and macadamia & raw cacao butter.
Macadamia & Raw Cacao Butter
2 heaped Tbsp unsweetened macadamia nut butter
1 tsp raw cacao powder
Drop of coconut water
Pop in food processor and blitz until combined, or add the ingredients to a jug and mix together with a spoon. Serve in a little side dish.
