Hello Hungry Harriets!!
If the word “peanut butter” doesn’t quite make your Inner Jill Jive, or get you feeling a tad bit like a Frantic Franny with a burst of excitement, then I’m afraid we can’t be friends. However, if the word “coconut” makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside with the possibility of an unexpected drool, then I MIGHT reconsider. Before making any life changing decisions about a possible friendship, try out my new Peanut butter & Coconut flapjacks and let me know what you think.
These happen to be filled with protein and are a healthy treat, in moderation, of course!
What you’ll need: (enough to make 4 flapjacks)
- 2 happy chicken eggs
- 2 tablespoons of coconut flour
- 1 ½ tablespoons of peanut butter
- 1 scoop of protein/whey powder ( I used Evox Lean Pro Powder in Vanilla)
- ¼ Cup of coconut cream (optional)
- 1/3 cup cold water
- A dash of almond milk
- ½ a banana
- A handful of frozen berries
- 1 tablespoon of coconut oil for cooking
- A squeeze of honey
- A good attitude
- 1 large and in charge smile, of course
Alrighty, time for the fun part! Let the adventures begin…
Crack your 2 happy chicken eggs into a bowl and mix until looking yellow and mellow. After that, add your coconut flour, whey powder and mix until smooth. Add your peanut butter (such a beautiful moment!) and mix like a Vigorous Vivienne until all lumps and bumps have disappeared.
The mixture should be looking quite thick at this stage. This will be the part where you’ll add your almond milk and water to the mixture.
Heat your frying pan with a tablespoon of coconut oil. Being the QUEEN of burning everything and anything possible, my one tip would be to keep the heat on a semi low/medium setting to avoid all possible disappointment of burnt flappers.
Scoop your mixture into the pan, as you would with normal flapjacks and cook until firm. Once firm, flip your jacks onto the other side until cooked.
Plate your cooked flappers and add your ½ banana to the top (cut into slices) with a drizzle of honey and your handful of berries. Looking good?
Whisk your coconut cream and dollop over your flapjacks for an extra bit of tastiness.
Enjoy your Fabulous Flipping Flappers with your morning coffee and have a dandy day!
