I must admit I’ve been a bad bad low-carber recently. I’ve been having a difficult couple of weeks with Aoife pushing the boundaries on her behaviour and I’ve been turning to cake and chocolate to get me through some days! Low carb pancakes have been a favourite of mine for a while but when I saw this recipe for a coconut and chocolate sauce I thought it might be the perfect solution for those sweet cravings.
Pancakes (makes 4 medium pancakes)
- 200g cream cheese
- 2 eggs
- 1 tblsp sweetener
Chocolate Coconut Sauce
- 1 packet or tin of coconut milk
- 1/2 tblsp cocoa
- 1/2 tblsp sweetener
1. Start with the chocolate sauce. Add the coconut milk and cocoa to a saucepan and heat gently. Once it has boiled, simmer for between 10 and 30 minutes, depending on how thick you want your sauce to be. Add sweetener to taste at the end.
2. Meanwhile, make the pancakes by blending the cream cheese, eggs and sweetener in a food processor. Fry the pancake batter as you would with normal pancakes.
3. Serve hot with lashing of chocolate sauce!
I had a lot of sauce left over. It keeps well in the fridge (although it will thicken more). I’ve been adding it to greek yoghurt, yum!
Let me know if you try this recipe. I would love to hear your thoughts.
