Wheat- and dairy-free coconut pancakes

I absolutely love desiccated coconut in food, especially ‘sweet’ food.  In Brazil, coconut trees grow everywhere and we consume coconut in various ways.

Fresh coconut water is what I miss most! It’s delicious and packed with potassium and some other electrolytes, fat- and cholesterol-free.  It’s the perfect drink to cure hangovers or for a day on the beach, as it keeps your body hydrated.

So, when I read John Limpus’ (www.urbanvitality.com) post promoting desiccated coconut pancakes as an elimination diet friendly breakfast, I decided I had to try it.

Let me just warn you, these are highly addictive! But they’re healthy too, so, who cares?!

Here’s my recipe.  It makes 4 medium crepes (thinner and lighter than pancakes):

Mouth-watering pancakes

2/3 cup of spelt flour

1/3 cup of desiccated coconut

1 tsp of dark brown sugar (optional)

1 egg

approx 1/3 cup of rice milk (just to make the batter liquid enough for cooking)

I mix everything together and use raw coconut oil and a non-stick frying pan to cook the crepes, and I usually have them with a bit of honey (therefore the optional sugar).

You can use other types of flour or ‘milk’. I choose these ingredients to make the pancakes as healthy as possible, alkaline diet friendly and also dairy-free.

Thanks, John, for pointing me in this direction!

And if you guys try these or other ingredients, let me know how it works, I’d love to hear from you!
