Sugar Free Tropical Pancakes

21 Aug

I can go healthy…………..but don’t make me give up my Sunday morning pancakes!!

Pancakes are one of life’s little luxuries.

Breakfast in bed on your birthday – Pancakes.

Late sunday morning brunch – Pancakes.

Pancakes scream celebration to me, a celebration of life, moments & fun.

So here is our healthier, yet still completely decadent version of pancakes for life’s little moments that require pancakes to round out the celebrations.

These pancakes don’t disappoint, they are light, fluffy & taste “oh so tropical”. Close your eyes & you could be eating breakfast on a beach in Fiji. Succulent fresh fruit & coconut you can’t get much more tropical than that.

These pancakes are sugar free, but trust me you won’t miss it, the caramelised banana chunks are sweet enough….

  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 T coconut butter

  • Strawberries & banana’s or your preferred fruit to top your pancakes

Place all of your ingredients minus the fruit in a blender or food processor & mix to combine well. Slice your banana’s & strawberries up ready to place on your pancakes. Heat a teaspoon of butter in a fry pan & allow it to heat up until the butter bubbles, place your sliced banana in the frypan & pour your pancake batter over the top of your banana slices. Let your pancakes cook until they are starting to form bubbles, then flip them over & let them cook all the way through.

    Pancakes are somewhat of a staple in our house. I make pikelets for breakfast once a week (I make the batter up the night before to “sour” overnight if I remember) and usually use blueberries in them and then I make sourdough pancakes once a week too. They’re rye flour and have a little honey in them for sweetness.
    Caramelised banana pikelets was one of my favourite breakfasts when we were in Bali (after the cereal, fruits, omelettes and everything else we gorged ourselves on).
