Lindsay is opening the secret about perfect pancakes today. She is not only a GREAT COOK, but also the creator of the famous Healthy Bites and an amazingly inspirational blogger for me! I can highly recommend to follow her over at CotterCrunch!
I have a confession. It took me 30 years to find a “PERFECT PANCAKE” recipe. You know the ones that are fluffy, healthy, and easy to flip? I’ve tried protein pancakes, egg free pancakes, oatmeal pancakes. Heck, I even tried the ready-made batter (gluten free) and still ended up either burning them or flipping them too soon. Pancake crumbles still taste good though.
Anyway, a few weeks ago I found a grain free recipe that looked promising. I tweaked it, or what I like to call “cotterizing,” then gave it a whirl. Batter was smooth; pan was hot, now it was just up to me to wait patiently to flip!
The perfect pancake is one that suitable to your dietary needs (we aim for low lactose and of course gluten free). The perfect pancake has a balance of good fat and carbohydrates (that’s why I used at least 1 whole egg and natural carbs from the banana). The perfect pancake has a good source of fiber (coconut flour has a great source of fiber. The banana does as well). The perfect pancake taste buttery yet slightly sweet (butter extract, vanilla extract, maybe a little stevia or honey, and Vanilla Corepower help!). The perfect pancake is shared with loved ones, enjoyed on a SLOOOOOOOW morning, savored with a cup of coffee.
Do you have a perfect pancake recipe? What makes it perfect?
