60gramsbuttermilk(or full fat sour cream, or greek yogurt)
1tbspvegetable oil(or melted butter) plus extra for frying the pancakes
1tspxylitol or erythritol sweetener(optional - or sweetener of choice)
Warm a pan on a medium to low heat with a little oil or if using butter add to melt just before frying the pancakes to avoid burning
Add all the ingredients into a blender or hand whisk them until you create a batter then leave to sit for 5-10 minutes to allow the coconut flour to absorb some of the liquid and settle
Gently spoon 2 tbsp of batter into the pan and smooth slightly with a spoon
Allow to gently cook on a low to medium heat (if you heat them too quickly they will burn underneath and stick) when bubbling at the edges and a few bubbles are coming to the top of the pancake, gently slide a spatula or knife underneath to loosen the pancake and carefully flip over to cook on the other side. Once cooked, sit on a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. Repeat until all the batter is used. I can make 6 fairly thick 8cm pancakes with this amount of batter
Serve with toppings of your choice. My favourites are a small amount of berries, full fat Greek yogurt and some seeds, or with a good knob of salted butter, sugar free syrup and crispy bacon!
This recipe is self-paired using the ingredients advised. By adding fruit this increases the carbs slightly, so you may wish to add an extra pairing element such as full fat Greek yogurt, coconut or soya yogurt, real cream or nuts and seeds.Avoid adding any honey, maple syrup, or similar sweet syrups and sauces as these all cause higher blood glucose levels. If you would like to add a syrup, try a sugar free, low carb syrup. There are many different ones available to buy, but you usually need to purchase these online as they are tricky to find in shops. Some of my favourites are Skinny Food Company syrups, the maple syrup flavour is perfect for pancakes! Or the one I am using currently is NKD Living Naked Syrup.
