Ingredients
serves 2
– 2 organic eggs, lightly beaten
– 225g ricotta
– 1 tsp vanilla essence
– 1 orange
– 1 tbs coconut flour
– coconut oil for frying

Blueberry sauce
– 1 punnet blueberries (fresh or frozen)
– the juice from the orange above
– 1 tbs agave syrup or honey

(1) combine the beaten eggs, ricotta & vanilla essence in a large mixing bowl. Stir through the zest of the orange. Add the coconut flour & mix well.
(2) allow the batter to rest for 5 minutes.
(3) in a small saucepan over medium heat, combine blueberries with juice of the orange & agave syrup, cover & bring to the boil. Turn down heat and summer uncovered until fragrant & sauce thickens to a syrup. Cover and set aside.
(4) fry spoonfuls of the pancake mix in a pan with a tbs of coconut oil over gentle heat until golden on both sides. Cook the pancakes in batches and keep warm in the oven.

    1. The original recipe uses strawberries but I had blueberries in my fridge, so you could just swap them out! Also, let me know if you find coconut flour in Hervey Bay as I’d like to tell my in-laws where to find it!

      1. There’s a place called Nana’s Pantry (at Pialba) which has a lot of stuff, plus a store specialising in organic type produce – so one of those would probably have it. Will have to looK!

      2. BTW, tell your in-laws I was in the Pialba IGA yesterday (at the Stockland shopping complex) and in their health food section THEY have coconut flour.

        The same store has a good supply of frozen GF stuff (including yummy bread) but it’s all pretty expensive – as usual!!!

      3. Thanks so much Deb! I will pass that on. I love seeing all the stores getting a great range of GF stuff; my local Coles has 3 entire aisles dedicated to GF stuff, and it’s starting to get cheaper!
