Look at this face? Is he not adorable. Imagine waking up next to this face, with those heart melting chocolate eyes pleading you to make pancakes. Imagine that happening every hour from 2 am to 9 am. What is a girl to do? Make pancakes of course!
Once I finally drag myself out of bed and gaze at my pantry I panic for a moment. Oh…. I could be in a trouble. No coconut flour. No almond flour. All I have is tapioca flour and flaxmeal. Hmm…. breathe. I can do this. Throw on some confidence. I am going to make some bomb tapioca flax pancakes.
Then true to style, I kind of dump things in a bowl according to my natural gut feeling of what will taste good, pour it in a skillet, and then pray (manifest/believe) that it will turn out pancake like. Once it starts to cook, I hesitantly peak to flip it over. Let a sigh of relief. This is going to work out. Not only did they work out but they were tasty and I had just enough honey to drizzle on top and please this adorable little face. “Brittany you are the best cook!” Is there any better way to start your day, then for your nephew to think you rule the world? I think not, especially when he looks up at me with sparkling eyes and says he loves me. Heart melted.
- 1 1/4 cup tapioca flour
- 1/3 cup flaxmeal
- 1/3 cup coconut sugar
- 2 egg
- 2 tbsp coconut milk
- 1 tsp cinnamon
Let’s Make it Happen: Heat a little coconut oil in a skillet. Whisk all of the ingredients in a bowl. Pour into the hot skillet. Allow to cook on one side. Flip before it starts to get toasty. Drizzle with honey or maple! Or as I learned, cut and serve maple on the side so Trent can dip.
