Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 14 small pancakes
- For the pancakes:
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons thick yogurt or quark
- 2/3 cup milk
- 1 heaped tablespoon chia seeds
- 2/3 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/3 teaspoon baking soda
- Good pinch of salt
- For the avocado sauce:
- 1 large avocado
- 1/2 cup coconut milk
- 4 tablespoons thick yogurt or quark
- Salt cayenne pepper and onion powder to taste
- Olive oil for frying
Sift together the flour, baking powder and soda. Set aside.
Whisk the egg with the yogurt until the mixture is silky smooth. Add the milk, chia and a pinch of salt, stir well to combine. Add the flour mixture and combine (using a whisk or large spoon) until the flour is no longer visible and the mixture is still a little lumpy - get rid of the larger lumps only and DO NOT overstir.
To make the avocado sauce peel and chop the avocado (discard the seed) and puree with the other sauce ingredients (including the seasoning - make it as spicy as you like). Set aside.
Heat up a little oil (1 tablespoon per batch) in a pancake pan and spoon the mixture onto it without overcrowding the pan. Fry the pancakes over a low heat for 1.5 - 2 minutes on each side (turn the pancakes over when bubbles start forming on top, without letting the pancakes brown too much).
Serve with crispy bacon (I used streaky bacon) and a scatter of pomegranate seeds. Makes 14 pancakes.
