Serves 2-3


Dry Ingredients: 
2 tsp Aduna Super-Cacao Powder  
3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut                                                               
2 tbsp coconut blossom sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch of pink Himalayan salt                                                                            
1/2 cup whole spelt flour
1/2 cup cashew meal
2 tbsp coconut flour
Wet Ingredients:
1 medium ripe banana, mashed
2 tbsp melted coconut oil                                                                                        
1 cup + 1 tbsp coconut milk (reduced fat), or nut milk                                        
Coconut oil, for frying


Preheat oven to 175C and spread the coconut on a lined baking sheet. Place in the oven and bake for 3-5 min, stirring from time to time to ensure it doesn't burn. Set aside to cool, reserving 1-2 tsp for topping.

Add the toasted coconut and coconut blossom sugar to a blender and blend until well combined. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the remaining dry ingredients.

In a separate bowl, whisk together all the wet ingredients. Pour over the dry and stir gently to combine, but be careful not to over-mix.

If you have a sweet tooth, you can add a splash of maple syrup to the batter too.

Leave the batter to sit for approx. 5 mins while you heat a non-stick frying pan with a teaspoon of coconut oil over medium heat. Using a spoon, pour the batter in circles into the pan and sprinkle with the reserved toasted coconut.

Flip gently when little bubbles appear, then cook for a further minute or two. Repeat until all the batter is used up.

Garnish with seasonal fruit and drizzle with maple syrup.
