Fiber-Rich Pumpkin Coconut Flour Pancakes with Peanut Butter & Raw Honey Syrup
Every once in awhile I have a taste for pancakes. Because they are 100% pure refined carbohydrate, traditional pancakes tend to leave me feeling stuffed, yet unfulfilled. I’m not sure about you…but when I eat, I want it to count!
I went on the hunt for a pancake recipe that not only offered nutrition, but one that had some muscle too. The recipe below is a compilation of several with the addition of two secret ingredients (psyllium husk powder and ground flax seed…shhh!) to bump up the fiber content, which works to stabilize blood sugar.
Oh, I almost forgot…the Peanut Butter & Raw Honey Syrup! Seriously, what are pancakes without syrup?
I used to have a total crush on maple syrup. But just like traditional pancakes, syrup is pure carbohydrate- so all it does is drive up the blood sugar even higher than before.
I created a much healthier syrup solution. Simply whisk together slightly warmed fresh ground peanut butter (you could also use almond, cashew or sunflower butter), warmed unsweetened coconut milk, and just a touch of raw honey (or maple syrup). Trust me, your pancakes won’t miss being drowned in maple syrup.
I have a feeling you’ll ♥ this recipe.
