Coconut Pancakes

Coming back from holidays has not been too hard for me, aside from the alcohol my diet remained pretty much paleo whilst I was away.

My fruit intake went up significantly though - and all that sugar (and alcohol) let me return home significantly 'softer'... It's that awkward feeling when all of your comp clothes are just a bit too tight and you want to wear stretchy pants everywhere... :-/ maybe that's just me...

Anyway I had coconut water almost every morning in Thailand and I happen to love them. I don't drink them because I think its better than water or because it has some magic slimming property(it doesn't) I just like them. So once I'd drank the water I decided I wanted to use the flesh inside instead of just throwing it out. There is probably an awesome way to spilt these... I just threw it against concrete till it cracked and washed it inside... Lucky I don't own a café eh?

PS: these pancakes have a reasonable amount of good fats. I estimate around 38gm... I ate this for a
weekend breakfast and didn't turn into the Michelin man - coconut is majority medium-chain triglycerides. My 'brother-in-law' can explain much more clearly than me why these are good to eat but in lieu of that just google if you are interested!

Ingredients - Serves 1:
  • 100gm young coconut flesh
  • 1 whole egg
  • 2 eggs whites
  • couple drops vanilla essence
  • 1 tsp psyllium husk
To Serve:
  • 1 tablespoon Greek yoghurt
Method:
  1. Heat a fry pan up to med/hot
  2. Pour all ingredients into a Stick mixer container
  3. Blitz it up and pour in the hot pans (oiled a little - I uses butter) to make 3 pancakes
  4. Serve with a dollop of Greek yoghurt
