Here are a few more mouthwaring pics to get your stomach rumbling, then we'll crack on with the recipe shall we?


  1. * Using a metal cookie cutter to contain the pancakes as you fry them will help give you a nice rounded shape and a more managable size too.


  1. In a blender mix together eggs, spinach, salt, black pepper, dried herbs and nutritional yeast (if you're using). Then add to the mixture protein and coconut flour, and give it a good wiz until everything is incorporated into the mixture.
  2. Heat the oil in the pan.
  3. Pour in half of the pancake mixture and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side. Repeat for the other half.*
  4. Leave both pancakes to cool while you prepare the filling, which brings us to the next step...
  5. Prepare the filling of your choice.
  6. Grab one of the pancakes, add your filling and place the other pancake on top. Cut in half and you have your delicious "panwich".
  7. Enjoy!
