As if the mere mention of the word 'pancakes' wasn't enough to excite me, I had to go one better this week... Imagine a fluffy pancake with a chocolate filling... Imagine that gooey Nutella flavoured chocolate filling was hidden in a little pocket in the centre of the pancake... Now imagine for a second, you could make them in less than 15 minutes at home, and they were 100% natural... Awesome right?
These buttermilk pancakes are grain & refined sugar free, light & fluffy and taste absolutely incredible...
For the pancakes:
- 2 eggs
- 2 tbsp almond flour
- 3 tbsp buttermilk (or coconut milk if you're DF)
- 1 tsp organic vanilla extract
- 1 tsp raw Irish honey
- 2 tsp hazelnut butter
- 1/2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- coconut oil
Start by whisking the pancake ingredients together until smooth and frothy.
Mix the filling together to form a paste. *Depending on the hazelnut butter, you may need to add a little water if it's too stiff..
Melt a little coconut oil in a non stick pan.
Pour batter onto the hot pan, immediately dropping 1/2 tsp of 'Nutella' into the centre of the pancake. Cover this with an extra tablespoon of pancake batter.
Flip pancake when small air bubbles appear on the surface of the pancake.
Try not to eat the pancakes the second you take them off the pan... They are amazing served with strawberry coulis and Greek yoghurt...
Give them a go... I guarantee you'll love them! The filling really adds to them...gooey chocolate hazelnut bliss in the centre of what's already my favourite treat in the world! These are unbelievably good!
