Author Ambra Torelli


  • 2 free-range eggs
  • 4 tbsp rice starch
  • 4 tbsp tigernut flour
  • 2 tbsp full fat coconut milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp maca powder
  • 1/2 tsp ginger powder (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder (optional)
  • 1 tsp gluten-free baking powder
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil, for frying

For the topping

  • fresh mixed berries
  • 200 g unsweetened coconut yoghurt
  • 2 tbsp crushed nuts of your choice


  1. Beat the eggs together, then add the remaining ingredients and mix well.

  2. In a small frying pan (11cm) (41⁄4in) is ideal), heat up 1⁄2 tsp coconut oil. When it starts to sizzle, scoop in two tablespoons of batter. The secret to perfectly circular and symmetrical pancakes is to use a small frying pan and make sure the batter covers its entire surface.

  3. Turn the temperature down as the bottom side cooks, then place a lid on top (or a small dish) to help a thin crust form on the other side. This will take 2-3 minutes.

  4. In the meantime, heat up another small pan and flip the pancake over it to finish cooking for about 1-2 minutes.

  5. Repeat the procedure until you run out of batter (you will need a little more coconut oil for frying). Serve with the toppings of your choice and enjoy.
