So these were formerly known as ‘Paleo Zombie Pancakes with a Blood Sauce‘ but now that it is not Halloween anymore I decided to change the name to make it sound slightly more appealing for everyday eating!
At Halloween, in my house no meal is safe from being gorified! I don’t know if ‘gorified’ is even a real word but I’m sure that you all get the point!
These pancakes are super healthy, yummy and well uhhhhh gory! Yeaaaaah!
Makes: 8 Pancakes
Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
For the barleygrass pancakes:
1 large banana
1 tsp vanilla extract / 1/4 tsp vanilla powder (optional but delicious)
1 tbsp coconut sugar
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 cup tapioca flour
1.5 to 2 tbsp barleygrass powder
2 tbsp almond flour
1 tbsp milled chia seeds
1 tbsp coconut flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp bicarbonate if soda
1.5 tbsp coconut oil to fry these beauties in!
For the raspberry sauce:
2 cups frozen raspberries
1 cup frozen blueberries
1/3 cup coconut sugar
1 tbsp water
- Mash together your banana, vanilla essence, and coconut sugar in a medium sized mixing bowl.
- Whisk in your eggs and maple syrup thoroughly.
- Add your barleygrass powder, milled chia seeds and flours, mixing until you get a smooth batter.
- Lastly add in your baking powder and bicarbonate of soda mixing thoroughly.
- Place a medium sized frying pan on a high heat and add your coconut oil.
- Once the oil has melted reduce the heat and place 2 generous sized tbsp of the batter into the pan.
- Using the back of the spoon shape into a perfect circle!
- Once the top of the pancake looks semi firm (should take about 1 minute) flip over and cook for a further minute.
- For the raspberry sauce place the frozen berries, water and coconut sugar into a medium sized pan and cook on a low heat until simmering. Make sure to squash down the berries as much as possible. This will take around 10 minutes max.
- Increase the heat to a medium heat and cook for a further 5 minutes until the sauce reduces down.
- Pour the sauce into a food processor and blend until smooth.
- Pour the sauce through a sieve into a measuring jug (or something that is easy to pour from).
- Once you have cooked all of your pancakes, stack them high and pour your sauce all over… gory!
