Coconut Flour, Turmeric – Cocoa Flat Cakes

Quite often my Saturday mornings offer themselves for breakfast experiments.

This week it was a flat cake I was seeking, not a sweet one… but one that had full flavor.  The first try was short of excellent, but with a tweak or two, and my daughter as a taster, I have come up with a tasty, super-nutritious flap jack.

Try this with a dollop of the Non-Dairy Ricotta Cheese I posted a few days ago.

This recipe is full of disease-prevention goodness:

  • Turmeric and Cinnamon are powerful anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor spices;
  • Nutritional yeast is full of vitamins and is a good source of protein;
  • Coconut and Almond flour are gluten-free and full of fiber and protein
  • Flax seeds are a must for both their fiber and anti-oxidant properties;
  • Hi-Omega3 eggs offer a health-sound source of fat and protein

Turmeric and Coconut Flour Cakes
Turmeric and Coconut-Flour cakes – this version omits the Cocoa

Mix dry ingredient together in a medium size bowl.

In a small bowl, beat eggs with vanilla and honey until blended.

Turmeric and Chocolate batter
You’ll have ghoulish looking batter as you incorporate the Cocoa

Add remaining wet ingredients and mix well.  Pour into dry ingredients and mix until just incorporated. If batter is thick add more milk.

Heat large skillet over medium high until hot, turn heat down to medium.  Coat lightly with coconut oil, and pour cakes to shape and size desired.

Turmeric and Chocolate cake
Flip when bubbles appear

Bake until bubbles begin to appear, then flip and cook until done.

The cakes will look dark due to the Cocoa

Serve with fruit or a little no-sugar-added jam. This recipe would also be tasty with toasted pecans in the batter.

  1. Mmm,, those sound so good I have been using a lot of turmeric lately. When the weather turns cooler I drink it mixed with milk either dairy or almond and ground black pepper. Love the pancakes they sound great.
