triple c pancakes

Step right up folks, we’ve got the perfect combination of coconut, cinnamon & cocoa here.

Sometimes I just get that hankering from some pancakes. By no means am I a pancake addict, however, I am a breakfast for dinner kind of gal. And so, I think my hankering stems from the fact that anything breakfast-like tastes 1,000,000 times better when you eat it after 4pm. I’m strange… I know!

Haha, nevertheless. Welcome to Heaven!

Darn blurry photos! Clearly my flash went on a hiatus in this picture! Blurry or not, they’re still beauties!

just peachy!

Sweet or savory? I definitely prefer a savory dinner, but every now and again it’s nice to mix it up. And Thursday night that’s just what I did. And what I came up with was just peachy keen. No pun intended.

This was a beaut of a dinner. More so for the tongue than the camera. That’s what matters most anyways right?! So you’re probably wondering what the heck is it? It was supposed to be a paleo puffed pancake. And while it is indeed a paleo pancake, it’s definitely lacking the puff departmnet. Physics just didn’t work in my favour here.

But nonetheless it was delish! Filled with fresh peach slices, and sweetened with maple & date syrup. What more could you ask for?!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 batch of my coconut pancakes
  • 1 peach (or other fruit if desired)
  • 1/4 cup of date syrup (blend 20 dates + 1 3/4 water + 1 T. lemon juice; store in the fridge) OR maple syrup
  • pinch of cinnamon

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Heat an oven proof pan over medium heat and and add sliced peaches.
  3. Grill peaches for 1-2 minutes. Add in date syrup and cook until thickened.
  4. Once thickened, pour in 1/2 batch of coconut pancake mix and cinnamon. Cook for 1 minute.
  5. Place pan in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes; until pancake is cooked through.
  6. Remove from pan and garnish as you please. (I sliced up a banana, added more cinnamon and poured extra date and maple syrup!)
