Directions:

Whisk together the egg, coconut flour, tiger nuts, mashed up banana, milk and vanilla. Heat coconut oil in a small pan and pour in the batter. Let it cook for a couple of minutes. Then place the blueberries on one half of it and carefully fold the other half over it. Let it cook for another few minutes and make sure the inside is cooked. Arrange on a plate with some strawberries and sprinkle some cinnamon on top.

Some information about tiger nuts:

Tiger nuts are little known nutritional powerhouses with a high energy content:

  • Very high in fiber and good for the digestive tract
  • Their high energy content make them an excellent food for people doing sports or studying
  • Relatively high in protein
  • Keep blood sugar levels stable
  • High in minerals such as calcium, magnesium, iron, potassium and phosphorous
  • High in vitamins C and E

    Have you ever tried to make these with a flax egg instead of a real egg? I have an egg sensitivity but want to try this recipe!

    • Hi Katarina, I made them with a chia egg (1tbsp chia, 3 tbsp warm water) this morning to test the egg-free version for you. It will be a little more difficult to fry it and to flip the half over once you’ve added the blueberries and you need to kind of shape it in the pan a bit to be in the desired shape. It turned out nice and brown and I think it tasted great! However, the consistency needs a bit of imagination as it’s not as fluffy as with an egg. Other than that I think it works well and I enjoyed it! Let me know how it goes in case you try it!

  2. My first reaction was to look away as I’m not interested in junk food full of sugar. Then I saw it was from your blog. These look so fantastic. I’m copying the recipe to use some day.

    • Hi Kerry, I don’t eat any processed sugar either and these pancakes really taste nice and sweet due to the banana. I found that it is really important to use the tiger nuts and coconut flour and not any other flour. I’ve tried it with almond flour and that doesn’t work as well. Let me know in case you try them and I hope you like them!
