Coffee lovers- This week is for YOU.

For those of you subscribed to my weekly newsletter, I mentioned that I’d be dedicating a week to recipes involving coffee but in particular, the flavours of the classic tiramisu. Not only that, I’ve got some of my non blog friends to share their association with coffee for each recipe! I often find it interesting to note the association others have with what I consider liquid gold

I, however, will start. 

Coming from a half Persian background, it is generally customary to bring a box of desserts whenever you visited friends and the same when they visited you. These boxes of desserts would typically have a variety of sweet treats- Cheesecake, fruit tart, a chocolate based one and of the course- The tiramisu

The humble tiramisu was like the black jelly bean in the mixed bag- No one wanted it. First to be scooped up would always be the chocolate one, followed by the cheesecake one and finally anything based off fruit. The sole dessert would always be the tiramisu. Luckily for me, I was always a fan of the bittersweet, rich and creamy dessert which always resulted in the whole thing reserved for one person.

Me.  

….And then I would wonder why I was a chubby ball of fluff growing up….Like these fluffy pancakes. 

When I was thinking up which recipe to start the week off with, I obviously had to combine three of my favourites- Coffee + Tiramisu + Pancakes. 

Sorry, let me rephrase that.

PANCAKES WHICH ARE DAMN FLUFFY.

I am incredibly picky with my pancakes. As much as I try not to discriminate against them, I can’t help but give the stink eye to the ones which are flat and lacklustre. Therefore, all pancake recipes you’ve ever seen on the blog thus far AND will continue to see will be just that- Thick, fluffy and resembling a pillow in edible form. The best part?

The pictures speak for themselves.

These healthy tiramisu pancakes are thick, fluffy and delicious and sinfully nutritious. You’d never guess something so decedent looking could be so darn healthy! They are chock full of protein, high in fiber and very low in sugar. In fact, there’s an option to keep it completely sugar free. Naturally grain free and gluten free, there is also a paleo and vegan tested option. 

I am 100% team egg yolk however for certain recipes, the whites are king. When paired with coconut flour, the egg whites provide them the extremely fluffy and thick texture. These can be made using the whole eggs but they do come out slightly more flat.

Make these healthy tiramisu pancakes and have your coffee IN your breakfast, not with it.

Just kidding, not having coffee would be blasphemy.

Ingredients

For the pancakes

  • 3 T coconut flour sifted
  • 1 T quick oats substitute for almond or coconut flour for paleo version
  • 2 T granulated sweetener of choice*
  • 1 scoop vegan or paleo chocolate protein powder optional
  • 1 T cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp espresso powder
  • Pinch baking powder
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 3 large egg whites for a vegan version, sub for 1 flax egg
  • 1 T full fat organic coconut cream optional but highly recommended for a true 'tiramisu' taste
  • 1/4 cup + dairy free milk of choice**

For the Tiramisu sprinkling

Instructions

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients and mix well.
  • Add the whisked egg whites and coconut cream and mix very well.
  • Using a tablespoon, add the dairy free milk of choice one tablespoon at a time until a very thick batter is formed. Set aside.
  • While the pancake mixture is resting, heat a large frying pan with coconut oil or butter until hot then turn the heat down to medium.
  • Pour 1/4 cup servings of the batter on the heated pan and cover. When the edges start to go golden (2-3 minutes), flip the pancakes and cover and cook for a further minute.
  • Repeat until all the batter is used up.
  • Top with tiramisu sprinkling and layer with extra coconut cream and enjoy!

Notes

* Adjust accordingly. I used a sweetened protein powder so I omitted
** Adjust accordingly. Depending on the flour/protein powder you use, you may need more or less.
If you opt for the vegan version, it will come out slightly more flat.
Pancakes taste amazing batch cooked and frozen and thawed before eating!

    1. Coffee and chocolate for breakfast!? You’re speaking my language! These look so thick and doughy!

    2. Wait…a whole week of tiramisu goodness? Tell me it’s true! So I’m digging these pancakes…they look awesome! And anything that features the flavors of tiramisu is a total winner in my book. 🙂 Oh, coffee. I drink it as often as possible. Well, that’s not true. I get a cup of dark coffee every morning and I sit down to read through email and blog posts. It really is one of my favorite times of the day! Now I just need some of these pancakes to materialize on my desk to truly make this my favorite time of the day. Well done!

    3. OKAY yes. number one requirement for pancakes is actually to be pillowcakes. and these my friend are the pillowiest SO FLUFFY I MIGHT DIE cakes i have ever laid my hubba hubba eyes on. The whole egg whites thing is making me scoff since that it has taken the fluff out of my life. but me and flax have become romantically involved, and although i NEVER deviate from my normal pancake recipe because i’m scared of so called “lackluster” cakes.. i know you would never fail me so i just might have to tira-me-trust-you.

    4. The thickness here is no joke! I completely get the whole ‘bring a box of desserts thing’. I always went for either the chocolate or the fruit tart- never the poor tiramisu. Scratch that, the only thing I was always excited to eat was the saffron ice-cream. Hey, could you make some sort of persian dessert appreciation post? I would love to know what you think of faloodeh, to me, it is essentially sweet noodles in an unattractive rose water sauce that I have no intention of consuming :P!

    5. I am a hard core coffee fan – sometimes, I flavor my water with coffee – how else am I gonna get my 8 glasses of h2o in?! 🙂
      Arman – these pancakes look insanely great! So thick! Wow!

    6. Sorry to break it to you but I’m not a coffee fanatic! It does taste good and I like the flavor of it, but you are more likely to find a cup of tea in my hand!
      Cheesecake is always neglected, which is unfortunate because I love it! These pancakes look absolutely divine
