It's time for pancakes to return (dear pancakes, oh how I have missed you over the past six days).  Although, the pancakes that I made this morning were very much unlike a normal pancake.  But who wants a normal pancake anyway?  I think the difference was mostly in the texture.  It was more crumbly which I've decided to blame on the coconut flour (poor coconut flour ;).  I realize that not everyone has access to coconut flour, so I'm sure you could substitute whole wheat pastry flour.  The down side: lemon coconut pancakes would turn into lemon pancakes.  Then up side: more normal pancakes (well, I suppose this could be another down side).  The point is, make substitutions according to what you have available.  You don't want to miss out! :)


Lemon Coconut Pancakes (serves 1)

Ingredients:
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup rolled oats
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
Stevia (or other sweetener), to taste
2 tablespoons canned pumpkin (or applesauce)
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon pure lemon oil (or you could probably use lemon zest)
1 egg (or replace with one flax egg or other vegan egg replacer)
6 tablespoons (or more) water (or almond milk if you have it - I was out)
Coconut butter, for topping (optional - cream cheese would also be good)

Directions:
Put the dry ingredients (flour, oats, stevia, and baking powder) in a bowl and give a good mix:

Add the remaining ingredients and give another good stir (you may need slightly more or less water than the amount listed) :

Give your arm a pat as it has done some good work for you :)  Then, poor about 1/4 cup increments of batter onto a heated, non-stick skillet.  You may need to spread it out if the batter is thick.  Cook for about 3 minutes, flip pancakes, and continue to cook for another 2 or 3 minutes.  Top with coconut butter or other topping of choice.

You can tell from the picture that they look more like corn cakes.  Not exactly what I was going for.  The taste, on the other hand, was pretty spot on!  I actually put the blueberries on in an attempt to make the pancakes look prettier, but next time, I think I will put even more blueberries on!  Lemon + blueberries = amazingness (don't I have great math skills ;)


The daily question: Are you a fan of lemon?
Some people love it, others hate it, and others are in between.  I rank myself at in between. If it's a deep strong, lemon flavor then there's good chances that I will love it.  But I would take something chocolaty over something lemony any day!

Yes, I agree, I like lemon, but it kind of depends on how strong the lemon flavor is.

Lemon and Coconut and Blueberries! Oh my! ;)

Students should not be over confident in class. They must give their feedback in class where it requires. They should not talk extraordinarily to show their presence which actually creates disturbance.

Yummy pancakes, I like coconut, and when we mix it with lemon, it becomes more tasty. My kids like pancakes, they are always ready to eat such things, I have tried different flavours but I think this one is amazing.
