Pancake experiments are some of my favourite experiments. And I can see these ones being a new favourite !
I’m addicted to Carob. Since I can’t eat Chocolate anymore , Carob really stands in for me. It’s very rich so has that Dark Chocolate vibe to it which I love as that was always my favourite anyway! Another great little thing about Carob , is it naturally Caffeine free unlike it’s Chocolate counter part . Carob and Strawberry are another little match made in heaven so that’s the route I went with these today.
4 Tbs Flour
1 tsp Baking powder
2 tbs ground Flax seed (Linseed)
2 tbs (Heaped) Carob Powder
Salt (sprinkle )
Pop the Bananas in a processor and blitz to a puree , then pulse in the rest of the ingedients except for the Strawberries.
Give the mixture a few minutes to thicken up while you heat a pan or a skillet. Spray with a good coating of oil (I used Avacado). Then chop your Strawberries up quite small.
Add a heaped table spoon of mixture for each pancake. Then pop a few pieces of Strawberry in each.
Once they’ve puffed up a little after 2-3 minutes. Give them a flip.
The second side won’t take to long so keep an eye on them.
Optional Fudge Sauce:
1/3 Cup Milk of choice (I used Almond )
2 Tbs Carob
2 Tbs Maple Syrup
Warm Milk gently , and add Carob and Maple to a bowl. Then whisk in warm milk. Use a little more cold milk if it needs thinning out.
Pour over pancakes and top with more Strawberries !
