The lucuma powder gives them a rich, creamy flavour and adds to the decadent raw chocolate sauce.The best bit is – they are refined sugar free and made with a healthier ancient type of wheat, and the addition of super foods gives them that extra nutritional punch!
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
For the pancakes
250g spelt flour
100g lucuma powder
½ mashed banana
100ml almond milk
2 tbsp maple syrup
To cook:1 tablespoon coconut oil
For the sauce
40g raw cacao butter
4 tablespoons cacao powder
3 tablespoons lucuma powder
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 handful of raspberries
1. Prepare the chocolate sauce first by placing the cacao butter in a saucepan on a medium heat. As it melts, stir in the cacao powder, maple syrup and lucuma. You can add extra maple syrup if you like the sauce sweeter. Mix until the mixture is a smooth consistency, and set aside.
2. Add flour, lucuma powder, egg, banana, and maple syrup to a bowl and stir. Pour in the milk, adjusting the amount to suit your taste- add more if you like your pancakes thin like crepes, and slightly less if you like them thicker.
3. Mix until ingredients are blended, place the pan on a high heat, and then add the coconut oil to melt.
4. Spoon out a ladle’s worth of mixture into the pan, allowing it to form a neat circle. Let it cook for 20 seconds, or until golden on the underneath, and then flip with a spatula. Cook it until golden on this side and then place on your plate.
5. Add a little more coconut oil to the pan if it needs, and then repeat until all your mixture is gone!
6. Once you have a pile of pancakes, drizzle as much or as little of the chocolate sauce as you like, and top with fresh raspberries (or any other fruit you may prefer).
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?
- Ashwagandha Dosage for AnxietyI found a supplement that is 500 mg, 120 Count. Do you recommend taking 1 capsule daily? or 2 capsules? I also take thyroid medication and an SSRI among other things.
- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHello Dia, Thank you for your comment. Research is confusing when it comes to testosterone levels with PCOS and using Ashwagandha. As it is an adaptogenic herb, it will 'adapt' to the environment of the body to support hormonal balance. A huge therapeutic benefit of Ashwagandha is its ability to balance cortisol levels, which could improve stress and symptoms of PCOS also. If you are currently using any medications or under medical supervision, please seek advice from your practitioner to ensure there are no interactions. I hope this helps :)

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Simie, thank you for your message. Ashwagandha is safe to be taken alongside other supplements including Vitamin E and Calcium. We would advise you check with your GP for interactions with estrogen medications for menopause as there are different variations of these medications. I hope this helps :)
