Cinnamon Walnut Coconut Pancakes

photo (1)This has got to be the most disgusting Perricone recipe I’ve ever had. I think I need to accept the fact that nothing tastes as good as normal pancakes- not Gwyneth pancakes, not Perricone pancakes. It tastes like undercooked cake mix. It just doesn’t taste right, not even adding honey makes it ok. I couldn’t even finish it it was so disgusting! However don’t let my personal taste put you off- my husband actually liked them! The Coconut flour is low carb and low calorie and the walnuts are an excellent source of omega 3 which helps to encourage healthy capillary function in the skin.

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Coconut butter or coconut oil for cooking

Pre heat a pan over a medium/low heat. Beat the eggs until frothy in a small bowl. Mix in milk, vanilla and honey. Combine the coconut flour, baking soda and sea salt in a medium bowl and whisk. Stir the wet mixture into dry, grease pan with butter or coconut oil. Ladle a few tablespoons of the batter into a pan for each pancake. Spread with the back of a spoon. The pancakes should be 2-3 inches in diameter and fairly thick. Cook for a few minutes on each side. Top with chopped walnuts and cinnamon.
