What you'll need:

  • 1 cup uncooked Connect Foods Amaranth
  • 1 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1 cup mango juice
  • 1/2 cup non-dairy milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1-2 bananas, sliced
  • 1/4 cup diced fresh pineapple
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • coconut oil
  • pure maple syrup

Place uncooked Connect Foods Amaranth in food processor and grind until it forms a flour. Add Amaranth flour, buckwheat, mango juice, non-dairy milk and eggs into a blender. Whip on high until blended smooth. If it is too thick, add a little bit of water to achieve your desired consistency.

Heat 1 tsp of coconut oil in a frypan on medium-low heat. Sprinkle a few coconut shreds to toast them before pouring batter over the top. Add sliced bananas and pineapple, pouring a thin layer of batter over them, and covering with more coconut. When the sides become dry, it's time to flip!

Serve with a bit of pure maple syrup. A little bit of butter is optional as well if you eat dairy!

Enjoy your tropical morning xx
