Recipe makes 12 large muffins OR 12 medium and 12 mini muffins.

Ingredients

  • 2 ½ cups Zentrofan 7 grain flour

  • 1 c organic coconut sugar

  • 3 tsp baking powder (GF if you have it)

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 1 tsp himalayan sea salt

  • 3 c oob bananas (defrosted and mashed)

  • 1/3 c olive oil

  • 1 ¼ c unsweetened almond milk

  • 1 ½ tsp vanilla bean paste juice of half a lemon

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees fanbake. Oil or line muffin trays.

  2. Mix together dry ingredients.

  3. Mash the bananas thoroughly. Mix together with remaining wet ingredients.

  4. Add the wet and dry ingredients together and combine, then add the blueberries and walnuts – break the walnuts into small pieces .

  5. Pour into muffin trays.

  6. Cook for 18 – 22 minutes.

NB:

Zentrofan flour has been air milled without heat to protect the nutrients. The 7 grain version is only 60% wheat, with added rye, barley, oat, millet, rice and corn flours to reduce the gluten and add nutrients. You could substitute this for any flour you prefer.

You could use any non-dairy milk if you don’t have almond milk.

I particularly like walnuts in this recipe but you could use any type of nuts – sliced almonds work well – or keep them nut free (remember to use a different type of milk if these need to be nut free). You could even use dairy free dark chocolate chips - Libby x

    life changing pancakes

She is a qualified holistic Nutritionist and a certified Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS) practitioner, whereby she uses food as medicine to support health and vitality. Follow her journey via her blog at www.sheridanjoy.com or on Instagram @sheridanjoyaustin

    Ingredients

    This makes roughly 15 small to medium sized pancakes. 

    • 1/2 cup green banana flour
    • 1/4 cup slippery elm - loosely packed 
    • 1 1/2 cups coconut milk (or 1 1/4 cup for thicker pancakes) 
    • 3 pastured eggs (4 if the mix is too thick or breaking apart when trying to flip) 
    • 2 tsp vanilla essence or 1 vanilla pod scraped
    • Pinch of salt

    NOTE: I used 1 cup of water and 1/2 cup coconut cream to form my coconut milk. I use the Ayam brand of coconut cream. 

    Method

    1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl using a fork or whisk, ensuring there are no dry parts remaining. 
    2. Allow to sit for 5-10 minutes to thicken.
    3. In a medium to high heated pan with a splash of coconut oil or ghee, slowly pour the mix into small pancakes. 
    4. Wait until bubbles come through the pancake, and then test to see if it can be flipped by wiggling your spatula under the pancake gently. If it breaks apart, let it sit there for a little longer as when it is ready you will be able to flip easily.
    5. Flip, and then cook evenly on the other side. 
    6. Reserve on a large plate, and then continue cooking the rest. 

    Note: I have tested this mix a few times, so if followed correctly it shouldn't be an issue, though if it is not binding well together, you may need to let the mix sit there for a little longer to thicken some more, or if it still does not work for you, then add another egg to ensure it binds even better. 

    Serve with your choice of deliciousness, though I love probiotic rich coconut yogurt and homemade blueberry jam!
