Breakfast is one of my favourite meals of the day but I find it can be difficult coming up with new and healthy ideas for my family. Without any cereals or breads, the options are limited but that can make it fun coming up with new ideas.
We have been big pancake lovers for a long time and it’s been a lot of fun seeing our little Pickle as enthusiastic as we are about our special Friday morning breakfasts. For some of you, what I am calling a pancake may seem a loose term as they contain no flours or sugars, but we think they are delicious and healthy, and fabulous when you need to inspire an appetite at breakfast-time in your kids.
All you really need is eggs … but if you are like me, you may want to spice things up from time to time with some additions like organic banana’s, figs (when in season), sultana’s, shredded coconut – anything you like.
- Whip required number of eggs (I use 2 per person)
- Add ingredients to the pan or to the mix and fry like a pancake.
This morning we made them with fresh figs, banana’s and shredded coconut. We served them up with a drizzle of honey and a teaspoon of fresh cream and sprinkled with cinnamon. They were a hit!
Last week we made them with fresh organic raspberries, shredded coconut, sliced organic peaches and cinnamon.
You can be as creative as you like – we have also tried them with a few tablespoons of coconut flour, a teaspoon of cacao powder and 2 fresh bananas. They come out quite a bit thicker and certainly more filling with the coconut flour but I also felt like they needed to be sweetened more because they were thicker so we used a little more honey. Although it was a fun change, I think the flourless option is probably better.
Have you tried these before or something similar? Would love to hear from you.
