Gluten Free, Dairy Free Polenta Pancakes
American style pancakes made from Polenta instead of flour and with Koko dairy free coconut milk making these both Gluten and Dairy Free
  • *For then pancakes*
  • 1 cup of polenta (235g)
  • 1.5 cups of Koko Dairy Free coconut milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract/essence
  • Frylight or a little oil
  • *For the salted caramel sauce*
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 50ml Koko Dairy Free coconut milk
  • pinch of sea salt
  1. *For the Pancakes*
  2. I used my Breville Crepe maker - but if you do not have one of these, then use a non stick frying pan on the hob instead
  3. To make the batter:
  4. Separate the egg whites from the yolks, and place the yolks into a large mixing bowl and the whites into a clean bowl and whisk until stiff peaks are formed
  5. In to the egg yolks, add the polenta, vanilla, baking powder and Koko and beat well to make a batter - be warned, the mixture will be quite thick and claggy
  6. Using a metal spoon, fold in the egg whites as lightly as you can
  7. Take your pancake pan (or in my case crepe maker) and wipe with a little oil to make the base even more non stick
  8. Using a table spoon, place spoonfuls of the mixture onto the pan, and spread out a little if you are able to, and cook own each side until golden and cooked (approx 60-90 secs both side depending on the thickness)
  9. You should get at least 6 pancakes
  10. Stack them up onto a plate
  11. Then pour over your salted caramel sauce:
  12. *For the Salted Dairy Free Caramel sauce *
  13. Put the sugar and salt into a heavy-based saucepan ,
  14. Add the water and then place over a medium heat until the sugar has dissolved.
  15. Then increase the heat and bubble for 3-4 mins until you have caramel. Take care not to burn the sauce!
  16. Remove from the heat, and pour into a large pyrex bowl (for safety reasons and to stop the sauce form continuing to cook)
  17. VERY carefully stir in the Koko milk
  18. Leave the sauce to cool, and then pour over your pancakes and add some chocolate coated banana chips, if you wish or fresh banana slices would be delicious too.
