These pancakes are our absolute fave! They are fluffy and so delicious with chopped fruit, nuts and maybe a drizzle of maple syrup or raw honey. They are also the perfect way to use up any excess kefir you may have from making your own. They are so easy to make and the kids absolutely love them with a bit of nutella and fruit for breakfast or for a snack.
You can also use yoghurt if you don’t have any kefir available or even some leftover buttermilk from making your own butter. I would recommend making your own kefir if you can and I’ve detailed how to do that in the video below. It’s so easy and really beneficial for your health.
We love drinking kefir daily as a straight drink or in smoothies. We also use it in salad dressings or even make kefir yoghurt with it. If you have excess kefir then pancakes are the best way to use it up. They have such great flavour and are delicious with chopped healthy fruits and raw honey or maple syrup.
2 cups of white spelt flour (or 1 cup wholemeal 1 cup white)
2 cups of kefir or yoghurt
2 free range eggs
2tbsp of maple syrup or agave
pinch of sea salt
1tsp of bicarbonate of soda
2 tbsp of melted coconut oil
Mix together the flour and kefir.
Whisk in the eggs, syrup, sea salt, bicarbonate of soda and melted coconut oil.
Beat together until smooth.
Heat a little coconut oil in a flat frying pan on a medium heat. I like to use my cast iron pan for these. A pancake maker would be perfect too.
Drop a few tbsp into the pan to form each pancake.
Flip after a few minutes or until you see little bubbles popping through and cook for a further minute on the other side.
Serve with chopped fruit, cream, or even a drizzle of maple syrup or raw honey.
Eat them quick because they do not last long with the kids around!
