Here’s the ultimate breakfast recipe from Samantha from Nourished Naturally that will provide you will the perfect boost in the morning and is even gluten free. Here’s what Samantha has to say about these sensational little snacks!

“These couldn’t be easier to make and in fact are blender pancakes. Hurrah! However, they are also vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free…the works, pretty much! Created using my beloved JAZZ™ Apples (now I’ve discovered them, I truly cannot go back), they are topped with a delicious apple sauce to make them that bit more special. The perfect weekend brunch or even lunch, if you like!”

Ingredients (Serves 1-2 Creates 10 American-style pancakes)

For the pancakes:

2 JAZZ™ Apples, cored and roughly chopped (no need to peel)

¾ cup + 2 tbsp gluten-free oats

½ cup brown rice flour (could sub for spelt flour for non-GF)

½ cup coconut milk

¼ cup yoghurt of choice

2.5 tbsp maple syrup

1 tbsp coconut sugar

1 ¼ tsp baking powder

½ tsp cinnamon powder

Pinch nutmeg

1 tsp vanilla paste

Pinch salt

Optional: 1 JAZZ™ Apple, finely chopped, and a handful chopped walnuts

For the JAZZ™ Apple sauce:

2 JAZZ™ Apples, peeled, cored and chopped

¼ – ½ cup water

1 tbsp maple syrup

1/4 tsp cinnamon

To serve:

Maple syrup and coconut yoghurt

 

Method:

  • Place all of the ingredients, apart from the optional apple and walnuts, into a blender and blitz to a smooth batter, scraping down the sides as needed. Stir through the apple and walnuts, if using, then set aside.
  • In the meantime, prepare your JAZZ™ Apple sauce by heating together the apples and ¼ cup of water on a medium-low heat. Cook until softened (around 10-15 minutes), stirring often and adding more water if needed, then remove from the heat. If necessary, drain the apples of the water, then stir through the other ingredients. Set aside.
  • Now, to make your pancakes. Heat one teaspoon of coconut oil in a pan until melted and hot. Then, drop spoonfuls of the pancake mixture into the hot pan. Cook until there are bubbles covering each pancake and the base is golden brown, then flip and cook on the other side until browned.
  • Serve your pancakes hot with spoonfuls of warm JAZZ™ Apple sauce, coconut yoghurt and drizzles of maple syrup. Eat immediately and enjoy.
