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. Oh my gosh, I haven’t had a pancake in forever. And DUH I’m a coffee fan. Give me a big-ass Americano any day and I’m happy. I’ll drink normal people coffee, too, but nothing makes me happy like espresso.

    2. Mmm coffee tastes best with a big breakfast after a race! That is honestly the best thing. Or if it’s raining and I have the afternoon off. I have actually never had Tiramisu because it is expensive and I was a coupon child. Therefore, we had many stretch the buck desserts. I liked most of them but the WORST one was this gross layered dessert with a gram cracker base, a vanilla pudding layer and then a layer of jello on top. All those things separately are fine (except jello, ew) but together I wanted to cry coupon filled tears.

    3. Of course I am a coffee fan! Iced coffee with coconut milk always! Even in the winter. And I just bookmarked this to make for breakfast tomorrow and/or lunch.

    4. I could totally make this, minus the oats… And finally for the first time in my life – have tiramisu! 😮

    5. They’re so fluffy I could DIE. And is it crazy that I’ve actually really started to like the black jelly beans that come in my mixed bags? I know. Also… I should be sleeping. But now I want pancakes. Le sigh.

    6. Alright, I’m gonna be straight with you here–I don’t like tiramisu. There’s something about the texture that gets me, sort of soggy and gross? And honestly, I don’t even like coffee that much, mostly because it makes me sick. But these? These look INCREDIBLE. I cannot wait to make them, first thing tomorrow morning!

    7. Oh man these look INSANELY GOOD. I think I need them for dinner perhaps… Yup I definitely do. PINNED.
