heart-y hemp pancakes
*basic hack: add hemp hearts to your favorite pancake mix for extra protein+healthy fats*
1 cup of your favorite pancake mix - i used pamela’s gluten free
1/4 cup humming hemp hearts
1-2 tbsp coconut oil
water if needed
heart shaped cookie cutter - optional
1-2 c. heavy whipping cream
or make coconut whipped cream using
1 can coconut milk - refrigerated
splash of vanilla
strawberries- fresh, frozen or freeze-dried - i used freeze-dried
if using coconut milk - place in refrigerator the night before to solidify the coconut cream.
add pancake mix to a mixing bowl. add eggs+oil. if using coconut whipped cream - open the can and scoop coconut cream off the top and into another mixing bowl - place in fridge until ready to whip. add the liquid coconut milk to the pancake mix, eggs+oil, and stir altogether adding water, if needed, til desired consistency. add hemp hearts and, if desired, a handful of chopped strawberries - gently stir together. cook pancakes in a preheated, lightly oiled pan. cut out pancake hearts using the cookie cutter. stack and top with whipped cream or coconut cream, strawberries, maple syrup, and a lil sprinkle of humming hemp hearts.
to make coconut whipped cream or dairy whipped cream:
in a mixing bowl, whip cream of choice with vanilla and a splash of maple syrup til soft peaks form. refrigerate any extra as soon as possible.
