Grain Free Roasted Strawberry Pancakes

 

My recipes are grain free, refined sugar free and most are dairy free. Grain free can be tricky because the texture is normally off. I am always trying new things. Strawberries have been on my mind lately. I love strawberries and summertime. Since going grain free I have had to invent recipes for all kinds of things. So I thought why not create a Strawberry Pancake. Once an idea hits my brain it rolls around for a couple of weeks. These pancakes take a little extra time to make as they have roasted strawberries, but they are so worth it. I know balsamic sounds odd but the taste it imparts into the strawberry is unbelievably yummy. They are super delicious. Goes well with Old Fashioned Buttermilk syrup made from a can of coconut milk or Lemon Maple Syrup

Notes: I can find monk fruit, coconut fruit and cassava flour at our local Raley’s. However, I find it is cheaper at Amazon. I also purchase my canned coconut milk at Walmart as it is way cheaper for the same brand I can’t remember the exact price but Raley’s was $3. something and Walmart is $1. something.

 

Roasted Strawberries

1 cup chopped strawberries

1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

1 tablespoon monk fruit sugar

Preheat oven to 350 F. Place chopped strawberries on an oven proof baking pan with sides. Sprinkle vinegar and monk fruit sugar over strawberries. Put strawberries in a preheated oven for 25 minutes. Allow to cool. Once they are cooled put into a food processor and pulse 3-4 times. Careful not to liquify strawberries.

Pancake Batter

1 cup plus 1 tablespoon cassava flour

1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/3 cup coconut sugar

1 cup thin canned coconut milk

1 beaten egg

4 tablespoons avocado oil

Roasted strawberries puree from above

1/4 cup chopped fresh strawberries

Serve with more cut up strawberries

Mix together cassava flour, baking powder and coconut sugar. Blend together milk, beaten egg, avocado oil and puree. Combine flour mixture with egg mixture. Blend 1 tablespoon cassava flour with 1/4 cup chopped strawberries. Slowly fold in the the strawberries. Heat a frying pan on medium with a little avocado oil. Once pan is heated add about a 1/4 cup of Strawberry pancake batter to pan and flatten out as best you can. My pan can fit 3 1/4 cup pancakes. Cook until small holes appear on top side of pancake. Carefully flip pancake and continue cooking until pancake is done. This batter takes a little longer to fry than conventional pancakes. The pancakes do not get as crispy on the outside. Serve with maple syrup, or Old Fashioned Buttermilk Syrup made with coconut milk.
