I’m back! At least I think I’m gonna start blogging again from time to time
How have you been???
I’ve been so extremely busy, but I do miss the interaction and sharing my recipe creations with you all! I’ve been Instagramming though.. New obsession… *sigh* I’m getting more and more addicted to social media because of my new smartphone — I’ve been kinda reluctant — but I’ve caved in I might not be as amusing to my friends (making pictures of my plate of food before sitting down for dinner and getting multiple messages throughout a date…) however, I’m gaining some great virtual friendships at the same time, and my friends.. thank God they’re checking their personal pages too
To cut to the chase, I wanna share a quick recipe with you upon request.
To make these:
You will need:
- 1/2 cup chestnut flour
- 1/2 cup teff or buckwheat flour
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 2 tbsp sugar substitute – I used xylitol
- 2 tsp raw cacao powder
- 2 egg whites
- 1 egg
- 3/4 cup sparkling mineral water / soda water
- 1 1/4 tsp baking powder
- pinch of sea salt
- Optional: add some maca powder, lemon zest, cinnamon, vanilla extract, almond extract… whatever you fancy!
Mix everything in a blender or with an stick-blender of electric beaters. You can combine this by hand with a whisk.. however you don’t get as smooth of a batter.
You will need a Dutch poffertjes pan, that looks something like this:
If you don’t have a cast iron poffertjes pan or something similar. You can bake these like any other three-in-a-pan / silver dollar pancake recipe.
They will not get as fluffy and thick as they would in a poffertjes pan, but the taste will be the same.
I love the combination of sweet and light chestnut flour + the earthy teff flour + rich raw cacao. It’s a great combination that makes these a real treat.
Serve with a dollop of whipped cream, coconut butter, real butter, some syrup and fresh fruit. A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.
Brings back childhood memories for me ♥
Hope you’ll enjoy and leave a comment if you’ve got any questions.
Much love & happy baking!
