I had written this recipe down in the previous weekend but couldn’t decide on a name for it. So, I just put down a temporary working title.
Turns out, come the day to publish it on my blog…..I STILL CANNOT FIND ANOTHER NAME FOR IT 😀
I guess it’s because, it’s just the way it is. I can never decide whether to make a waffle or a pancake whenever I try this recipe haha.. Is that okay? To be indecisive when it comes to waffle pancake business?
I’d like to thank each and every one of you who really took the time to wish me Happy Birthday a few days ago. I really read them all and sent you back well wishes, for taking the time to wish me well. I am so lucky. BLESSED.
What did I do for my birthday? Well, my husband took me on a quick getaway trip to Singapore, to watch one of our favourite musicians and songwriter, Richard Marx. I enjoyed myself, especially the chance to get to celebrate my 40th birthday, back in the country where I was born.
Were you a Richard Marx fan too, back in the day? He had that signature mullet and black leather jacket with his scratchy high pitched voice. LOVE.
Okay, enough about my birthday. I am so happy to be 40. It feels really good! But now time for my Pancake Waffle Recipe.
- ½ cup coconut flour
- ¼ cup almond flour
- 1 ripe banana
- ¼ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon powder
- 2 tablespoons your favorite natural nut butter of choice (I used hazelnut butter)→ optional but recommended
- 1 flax egg ( 1 Tbsp flaxmeal mix with 3 Tablespoons water)
- ¼ cup water
- coconut oil to grease pan
- Vegan Buttermilk:
- 1 Tablespoon lemon juice or Apple Sauce
- ½ cup plantbased milk
- First make your flax egg by mixing 1 Tablespoon Flaxmeal with 3 Tablespoons water. Set aside
- Make vegan buttermilk
- Put vegan buttermilk and ripe banana in a blender and blend until all incorporated. Or you can manually mash the banana in the buttermilk
- Combine Buttermilk with the rest of the dry ingredients plus the flax egg and mix well.
- Heat a non stick pan on small to medium heat and VERY lightly coat with some coconut oil, either using a brush or a paper napkin dabbed with some coconut oil ( you have to be patient with coconut flour, it will burn when the pan is to hot)
- Spoon in 2-3 tablespoons at a time and spread it a bit. Wait until the surface bubbles and the edges are beginning to firm up THEN flip.
- Enjoy with your favorite toppings like blueberries, strawberries, fruit jam or chopped bananas.
This was my waffle version. The one on top was my pancake version. See how indecisive I can be, at times? Ha!
Please do make your own version and tag me on instagram.
I love coconut flour, since it’s glutenfree and my tummy agrees with it. But you need to use tons of moisture when working with coconut flour, since it soaks a lot of liquid.
I really hope you loved my blog today. Yep, Richard Marx and GF Pancake slash Waffles.
