It is possible to indulge in your favorite things even when you are focusing on being grain and dairy free. It’s not necessary for you to suffer and think that you’ll never be able to eat anything fabulous and naughty ever again.
I mean seriously. Does this look like I suffered at breakfast this morning?
I certainly did not and you don’t have to either. These are easy to make and incredibly delicious. The whole family will love them and absolutely no one will even notice that they are free of grains and dairy and made with coconut sugar.
You can top them with anything you like. I’m a dairy free butter & pure maple syrup kind of girl, but powdered sugar and chocolate chips, and even peanut butter go quite well.
Bacon provides the perfect salty side.
Grain Free & Dairy Free Chocolate Pancakes
*Makes 12 medium to large pancakes
2 Organic Eggs, Separated
3 1/2 Cups of Organic Full Fat Coconut Milk (or milk of choice)
1 teaspoon of Pure Vanilla Extract
1 Cup of Organic Buckwheat Groat Flour (Ground Groats)
1/2 Cup of Organic Coconut Flour
1/2 Cup of Organic Arrowroot Flour
3/4 Cup of Organic Cocoa Powder
1 teaspoon of Double Acting Baking Powder
1 teaspoon of Baking Soda
1 teaspoon of Organic Coconut Crystals
1/4 teaspoon of Sea Salt
Separate the eggs and beat egg whites to stiff peak. Set aside. Whisk the buckwheat, coconut flour, arrowroot, cocoa powder, sugar, salt, baking powder, and baking soda into a medium sized bowl. Add the milk, egg yolks, and vanilla. Whisk to combine. Carefully fold in egg whites.
Heat a griddle on medium and oil. I used bacon fat but you can use avocado oil or coconut oil also. Spoon batter onto hot griddle and cook for 4 minutes or until bubbly on top. Flip and cook for about 3 minutes.
