Whole wheat goji berry pancakes

A healthy treat for when you crave a sweet breakfast. A nice way of adding more goji berries and whole wheat flour into your diet. They contain no white flour or sugar at all and they're sweetened with maple syrup (or honey, if you'd like). If you're a bit unsure about using only wheat flour in a recipe (instead of half-and-half mix with white), no need to worry: in a fry-up like this, wheat flour is actually more delicious than white flour: it gives a bit of texture and the subtle nutty flavor is addictive.
All in all, they're delicious, fast and easy to make and guilt free (in terms of healthy food choices). Enjoy :).

Last year: Chicken scallopini (Italian).
Two years ago: Fruit chaat (Indian fruit salad) (raw vegan).
Three years ago: Baby making and no cooking :)

  • 150 g whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 50 g dried goji berries
  • 2 tablespoons raw sugar (demerara sugar)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 200 ml milk 
  • 1 large egg, beaten (preferably free-range)
  • butter or coconut oil to fry (coconut oil gives a nicer flavor)
  • honey or maple syrup to serve

Mix the flour and baking powder in a large bowl. Prepare the berries, milk, vanilla and egg.

Mix the milk, egg, vanilla and sugar into the flour until a batter forms. Ad the berries:

Mix well. Heat the coconut oil in a large frying pan and add spoonfuls of batter in it:

Fry for 3-4 minutes on each side (on low-medium heat). Take them out, stack them on a plate (and keep warm), repeat with the remaining batter.
Serve them warm, drizzled with maple syrup or honey. It's done, dig in! :)
