I have recently been practicing breakfast recipes for holiday family get togethers. This one is adapted from an excellent cook I know and I am so happy to share it. It is healthy, indulgent, and incredibly crowd pleasing all in one! Chocolate, blueberries, zucchini, coconut ..may I say more? —Dee

What You'll Need
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds
  • 1 cup full-fat, unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1/3 cup oat flakes (quinoa flakes are a great gluten-free option)
  • 1/3 cup millet flour
  • 1/3 cup buckwheat flour
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1.5 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil warmed to liquid, (plus more for the pan)
  • 1 medium zucchini, finely shredded
  • 1 cup fresh/frozen blueberries
  1. In a bowl, mix coconut milk and flax seeds well. Set aside
  2. In a large bowl, combine flours, oats, salt, and chocolate.
  3. In a medium bowl, beat the egg with maple syrup until creamy and doubled in volume. Pour the milk and chia mixture into the large bowl with flours. Mix well.
  4. On medium heat, warm a skillet with a small amount of coconut oil. Ladle 1/4 cup of the batter into the pan to form 4 inch pancakes.
  5. Scatter blueberries on top of each pancake and gently press into the batter with a spatula. Cook until bubbles form ( about 1 minute). Flip the pancakes and cook for another minute, or until golden.
  6. Serve with maple syrup, berries, yogurt, or coconut whip cream (see other recipe)

These look really good, but I have a few questions: step 2 calls for chocolate, but none is listed in the ingredients. Step 3 refers to the milk and chia mixture, but it should probably be milk and flax seed mixture. Finally, when is the shredded zucchini added? Thanks!
