healthy cooking: lemon coconut pancakes

img_1890

While I searched online for a new pancake mix recipe for the Easter morning breakfast  I had in mind and of course while staying  on my healthy eating kick, I discovered one, similar to pancakes I’d eaten at a restaurant in Emeryville, California several weeks ago and figured I’d try it. (Phew!!!)

So, here it goes:

Lemon Coconut Pancakes with Honey-Tart Yogurt Sauce
1 cup Gluten-Free flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1 cup Brown Sugar
2 eggs
1 cup Coconut Milk
1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
Juice of 1 Lemon
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract

Yogurt Sauce
1/4 cup Plain Yogurt of Choice (Goat, Sheep, Cow)
1 Tbsp Honey
2 tsp Strawberry Preserves
Juice of 1/2 a Lemon
Mix all ingredients together well; set aside and serve with pancakes

First, mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl, and set aside. In a separate bowl mix all the wet ingredients together and whisk well. Slowly stir in wet ingredients to the bowl of dry ingredients, and mix thoroughly until a smooth batter forms. Heat a pan with a drop of Coconut oil, and pour in a 1/4 cup of batter onto pan, forming a nice round shape. Cook until bubbles form- about 2-3 minutes, then flip. Repeat until all the batter is gone. Serve with yogurt sauce, and top with fresh berries.
