Berry Coconut Chai Latte Pancakes with Coconut Cream filling

8 Apr

Remember how I mentioned I was entering in that pancake contest? The first week was the Moconut pancakes I’ve posted already, which didn’t win. This past week I had to incorporate berries, which is why I made these pancakes with blueberries, in high hopes of winning..but I didnt:/

I still enjoyed them and so did my boyfriend though! I spent a lot of time thinking of what to make and had a ton of fun creating them. That’s all that counts..right?

Well, even though these pancakes once again, didn’t win the contest, I think they are surely worthy of posting the recipe for. I bet you all will really like them:)

You may ask, blueberry and chai flavored? How? Well the blueberries is a simple explanation, but the chai flavor is what made them special! All you do is make strongly brewed tea with a chai tea bag, and use that as part of your liquid for the batter! How simple yet yummy?!

Blueberries contain so many antioxidants, coconut flour is very high in fiber compared to most, and using chai tea in place of milk or other liquids lowers the fat and calorie content. Healthy you think?? I say so! These would serve as a great breakfast, post workout meal, or even dessert! I know you’ll love them if you give them a try:)

Next week is the last week for the contest! And the theme is you have to incorporate veggies into it.. Guess you’ll have to see what I come up with! What veggie do YOU think I’ll use?!
