cinnamon swirl/bun pancakes

Afternoon, just thought i would drop by with these cinnamon swirl pancakes. Finally the recipe is now live, hurray! Lets get into what your going to need. These pancakes are gluten free and are only sweetened with a few dates, so a breakfast acceptable treat. 

Makes around 2 large stacks 

1/4 cup vanilla protein powder
1/4 cup rice flour
1/4 cup buckwheat
1tsp baking powder
1tbs chia seeds 3tbs water
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup yogurt

1/4 cup soaked dates (overnight)
1/4 cup water
1tsp cinnamon

1/4 cup yogurt
1/2tsp vanilla
pinch of nutritional yeast (optional for that slightly cheesy flavour)

Combine wet and dry ingredients for the pancakes and set aside to thicken up for around 10 minutes. While its thickening up blend dates with water until a smooth batter appears, you may need to add more water depending on the strength of your blender. Add in the cinnamon and a pinch of salt and transfer it to a pipping bag. Mix up the frosting and place back in the fridge ready for serving. 
Now your batter is ready for the pancakes. Make sure to heat your pan over low/medium heat with a little coconut oil. Drop batter into pan and before the top starts to set swirl in your date mixture try and put it actually into the batter rather than just on top as it may come away when you flip your pancakes. Once the pancakes are showing several bubbles, flip them over for a minute to cook the swirl side. Remove from the pan (there may be some date paste on the pan just scrape it off onto the pancakes it tastes like toffee) Serve with frosting and a little seasonal fruit, i also smashed up some granola pieces and sprinkled them on top just for that added crunch.

Hope you enjoyed this recipe, they keep wonderfully well over night in the fridge covered up. just simply place in the microwave on the morning for 30 seconds to make them warm again. These would make the perfect christmas morning pancakes. Who doesn't want to be eating cinnamon bun anything christmas morning right?

Until next time, Helen xx
