Coconut Chai Pancakes

Good morning and happy Pancake Sunday! I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend! It started storming here a couple of hours ago so it looks like my day is going to be filled with the excitement of housework and food prep for the week.

Speaking of food prep, I know EXACTLY what my breakfast is going to be in the morning!

I’ve been drooling over Elise’s Chai Chia Oatmeal Pudding since I saw it on her blog the other day! Doesn’t it look absolutely delicious?! I think I might actually have been dreaming about it last night because when I woke up this morning all I could think of was chai tea!

Luckily, I happened to have some Yogi Chai Black that I found on sale a few weeks ago and I decided this morning would be the perfect time to crack it open and put it the (taste) test in a recipe!

Coconut Chai Pancakes: (serves 1)
Inspired by Hungry Hungry Hippie’s Chai Chia Oatmeal Pudding

  • 1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup chai tea steeped in water
  • 1/8 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/8 cup applesauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

1. Preheat a non-stick skillet over medium heat and coat with cooking spray.
2. Combine dry ingredients in a medium-sized bowl.
3. Whisk together the tea, milk, applesauce, oil, and vanilla in a small bowl.
4. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir just until combined.
5. Spoon batter onto hot skillet surface (makes 3 small-medium pancakes) and cook for         approximately 4-6 minutes per side or until golden brown.

Top your cakes with unsweetened shredded coconut and cinnamon spiked maple syrup (1/4 teaspoon cinnamon added to 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup) and enjoy!

I love the way chai tea feels like it warms the body…perfect for a stormy Sunday morning breakfast!

This was actually the first time I’ve ever created a tea-infused recipe and I think the addition of the sweet/spicy taste of the chai tea made for the perfect companion to the subtle coconut flavor!

Well, I’m off to do laundry and make up a big batch of something for the week. “See” you guys tomorrow!
