What to do:

Making these flappers happens to be rather simple, and will have you feeling like you could be the next Jamie Oliver in the kitchen! Before we get started, get your pan ready on a low heat with a small teaspoon of coconut oil for cooking.

Mush your bananas and happy chicken eggs in a bowl, adding the vanilla extract. Once you have a semi thick consistency, place in a blender/ Nutribullet along with your handful of blueberries and almond flour and blitz for only a few seconds. The consistency of the mixture should still be thick, so the shorter, the better.

You may need to give the mixture a stir with a spoon before cooking your batter. Once all is mixed, spoon a desired amount of your super delicious mixture out and place in your heated pan. Cook as you would with normal flapjacks and flip until golden brown. YUMMY!

Plate your flapjacks in a stack, placing cut banana pieces and blueberries between each layer. Add a dollop of coconut cream to the top with a few sprinkled raspberries on the plate for decoration, and of course, a delightfully good drizzle of honey for some sweetness.

If you manage to master the art of getting your stack to stand or if your breakfast seems to look more like the leaning tower of Pisa, then BROWNIE POINTS TO YOU!! You TOTALLY deserve to eat your fabulous flappers after all that effort!

Serve and enjoy with a morning cup of coffee.

Happy Flapping, everybody!

Until next time,

FABULOUS FLIPPING FLAPJACKS

Anyone care for a naughty Nelly kind of breakfast?

I’ve come up with my own little recipe for some marvelous flapjacks, the kind that are healthy and friendly towards all the bums and tums out there. How jolly and what a BEAUTIFUL creation!!

Alright, so you’ll need:

  • ½ cup of blueberries
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 2 happy chicken eggs(free range, ofcourse)
  • 1 tablespoon of Almond Flour
  • A sprinkle of cinnamon
  • A dash of coconut oil (for cooking)
  • Honey

The above ingredients are fit to serve one healthy Heather.

Cooking steps:

Basically, mash your bananas, both happy chicken eggs, blueberries, Almond Flour, and cinnamon together in a bowl and beat until “creamy”.

While doing that, make sure you have your pan ready on the stove with a dash of coconut oil, waiting on a medium heat.

Scoop the mixture into the pan, as you would when making normal flapjacks. Flip when firm and cook the other side too.

Once you have made as many flapjacks as your mixture will allow, serve and feel free to drizzle a touch of honey over your flappers.

Enjoy with your morning coffee. Guilt free treats are the fairest and most fabulous of them all.

Have a dandy day!
