Raspberry Stuffed Pancakes

You'd never guess that I liked pancakes! I almost didn't post a recipe for pancakes today, but then realised that would just be odd since it's Shrove Tuesday!

These are a little more time consuming than some of the other recipes I have posted, but they're still actually really simple to make.

For the pancakes:

  • 3 eggs 
  • 1 tbsp coconut milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp milled flax seed
  • 1 tbsp ground almonds
  • 1 tbsp vanilla whey protein (or sub for ground almonds)
  • 2 tsp GF baking powder

Whisk all the ingredients together until combined and frothy. 

Set aside for 10 minutes. This allows the batter to thicken slightly, and gives you time to make the filling. 

NOTE: As you make the filling, preheat the oven to 170d. Place a non stick bun tray into the oven to allow it  to heat up. 

Raspberry filling:
  • 75g frozen raspberries
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp water

Place the raspberries into a small saucepan. 

Bring to the boil before reducing the heat. Allow to simmer for 3-5 minutes until the mixture has thickened. 

Set aside to cool slightly. 

To bake the pancakes:

Remove the hot bun tray from the oven. 

Immediately pour 1 tbsp of batter into each hole. 

Top with 1 tsp of raspberry filling.

Finally pour 1 tbsp of batter over the top. 

Place back in the oven for 3-4 minutes at 170d. (All ovens vary so just keep an eye on them... they should be just firm & puffed up. If you over-bake, they will be chewy and dry) 

The pancakes will pop out of the the tray really easily. Serve with hot chocolate sauce
