Are you a pancakes or waffle kind of person?
Serious question! I know so many people who get in heated debates about this, and for good reason. To me, waffles are more of a family food- the kind you whip up for Sunday brunch to pair with some hash browns and eggs. In my opinion, pancakes are meant to be shared between two people, or eaten as a single serving 😉 That’s why I’m more of a pancake person. I’m single and do not like sharing food. Aka pancakes are perfect for me! What about you?
Pancakes scream “Sunday” to me. I have no idea what it is, but the thought of whipping up a batch of comforting pancakes, drizzling some almond butter on top, and sitting in front of the TV watching football sounds absolutely perfect to me. Sadly, football’s over, and I wake up very HANGRY on my rest day (aka Sunday), so I don’t always have the patience.
However, I did today, and man did it feel good. I noticed some left over cranberries in my fridge that were looking verrrryyyy sad, so I knew I needed to add those to the batter. The result? Cranberry coconut perfection. The combo is not a common one, and I have no idea why. I think cranberries get a bad rep because of their tartness, but since they’re combined into the batter for these pancakes, they taste completely different. Plus, who doesn’t love something coconut?!
I’ve been on a coconut kick recently, and these pancakes are no exception. You better believe that post photo, I added a ton of coconut chips because team #coconuthead (if you understand that reference, we can become best friends… NOW) Let’s dig in!
INGREDIENTS (Serves two):
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup oat flour
2 eggs + 1/2 cup liquid egg whites*
1/4 cup greek yogurt
1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup cranberries
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut
1 tbsp coconut oil, for cooking
* – If you don’t have the liquid version, use two egg whites straight from the egg
1.) Turn your stove top to a low-medium heat, and melt your coconut oil. Swirl it around to ensure every aspect of it gets covered.
2.) In a bowl, combine the dry ingredients and mix well to ensure no clumps. Add in the leftover ingredients, and mix together even more. Once everything has mixed, take a giant spoonful of the batter and pour it onto the pan. Spread it out with the back of your spoon and add in a few cranberries to the side facing up.
3.) After two minutes of so, flip the pancake so the other side can cook. Cook it on that side for about one minute, or until you think it’s ready. Transfer to a plate, and repeat steps 2-3 until the batter is gone.
4.) Once done, add the toppings of your choice, the coconut, and any fruit you’d like. Enjoy!
