    Coconut flour cacao pancakes
    GF, Dairy free
    Happily serves 12 pancakes

    1⁄3 Cup Coconut flour
    5 eggs
    ½ Nut milk of choice
    ¼ Cup full fat coconut milk
    ¼ Cup coconut sugar or stevia
    3 TBSP Raw Cacao powder
    ¾ tsp vanilla extract
    Dash of Sea salt
    Coconut oil spray for each pancake

    In a deep bowl, whisk all ingredients except ghee/coconut ghee/coconut oil, until well combined. Batter should be very thick but pourable. Not watery.
    Let batter sit for 5 minutes to let the coconut flour absorb the liquid, stirring once more at the end.
    Pour about 1⁄3 cup of batter into a frying pan pre-heated with coconut oil. 
If necessary, tilt pan and shake lightly for even distribution of batter. (Batter does not necessarily need to spread throughout the pan).
    Fry for a couple of minutes, occasionally covering with a lid, till liquid has almost firmed up
    Tip: Covering the pan with a lid occasionally will help keep moisture and enhance even cooking.
    Flip with a spatula, and fry the other side for a couple more minutes, then remove from pan.
    Repeat for rest of batter, greasing pan between batches as needed, and occasionally stirring the batter left in your bowl for even consistency.
