I feel like everyone has that one pancake recipe that they know that they can always count on. For awhile now, I’ve been trying to find the right combination of ingredients that made a perfect, thick, moist and delicious pancake.
Well, yesterday I finally did it!
Topped with coconut oil-fried bananas, a peanut flour cocoa sauce and unsweetened coconut. (Excuse the Instagram photo!)
And then I made them again this morning and topped them with strawberries, maple syrup and coconut with peanut flour between each layer. Droool.
I really wanted them again for lunch, but I felt like that would’ve been a bit overboard…
My Perfect Pancake
- 4 egg whites
- 1/3 cup TVP
- 1/3 cup unsweetened almond- coconut milk (or other milk, but I think this gave it a delicious flavor)
- 1 T Coconut Flour
- 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce (or pumpkin puree)
- 1 t cinnamon
- .5 t pure vanilla extract
- .25 t baking powder
- .25 t xanthan gum
In a small bowl, combine TVP and almond milk and set aside. Let soak for about 5 minutes, or until the liquid is absorbed into the TVP.
Heat a coated skillet or griddle to medium heat.
Whisk egg whites well, about 30 seconds. When they foam at the top, add in applesauce and coconut flour.
Add TVP mixture along with the rest of the ingredients. Mix well. I found that it thickened with time, so I let it sit for a minute or 2.
Pour batter into 4 pancakes and let cook for 5 minutes. When outsides seem firm and the spatula easily slides underneath, flip!
Cook for additional 5ish minutes.
Annnd ready, set.. DIG IN!
