Top with your favourite fruit or a smidgen of honey (remember your 1 TBS a day honey allowance when Banting).

- 2 Whole eggs and 2 egg whites
- 3 TBSs melted coconut oil (or melted butter)
- 3 TBS coconut milk (or full cream milk)
- 1 TBS xylitol (can be purchased on Gmarket)
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 3 TBS coconut flour (can be purchased here in Korea through >>> iHerb)
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp all spice
- 1/3 cup flax meal (flax seeds can be purchased here in Korea through >>> Iherb...simply grind the seeds in a blender to make your own flax meal)

- Using a whisk, mix together eggs, coconut oil (or melted butter), milk, honey and sea salt.
- Continuing to whisk, add the baking powder and coconut flour until thoroughly mixed. Add the cinnamon, all spice, flax and vanilla. Stir to combine. Coconut flour is incredibly absorbent so you might find the batter gets stiff too quickly. Simply add some milk, a little at a time to get the batter back to a smooth consistency.
- Heat 1 tablespoon of butter (or coconut oil) in a pan on medium flame heat. Then wipe down the pan with a paper towel and put aside. This keeps the oil and heat consistent so your pancakes cook through evenly (re-use the paper towel, adding more coconut oil when needed).
- Spoon 2-3 tablespoons of batter onto a pan and leave for a couple of minutes (making sure to keep an eye on it so it doesn't burn)
- Turn over to make sure each side is thoroughly cooked.
