Easy Unique Banana Pancake with Raw Cacao Sauce

Last week, I had the flu, and oddly I had no appetite at all in the morning, till 12 PM. It never happens to me!

The idea of eating a savoury meal was not attractive to me. 
However, the idea of eating a pancake was great to stimulate hunger! 

This recipe is super easy. You only need 15 minutes to prepare it, including the cooking time.

Ingredients (for one person only, that' s why it is UNIQUE!)

- One ripe banana
- 1 teaspoon of creamed coconut 
- 1  or 2 Eggs (Pastured Organic)
- 10 grams of Butter (I found one brand of Grass Fed Butter at Woolworth: Westgold, and it is one the cheapest on the shelves!)
- 1 teaspoon  of coconut flour (or not at all will be even more delicate!)
- 1 heaped desert spoon of dessicated coconut
- 2 pinches of Baking Soda Powder
- One good teaspoon of coconut oil 

For the Raw Cacao Sauce
- 1 heaped desert spoon of Raw Cacao Powder
- 1 teaspoon of Raw Honey
- One pinch of Cardamom Power (my touch!)
- 5 grams of Butter

- Melt the butter in a double boiler or in the microwave
- Mash the banana and add it to the butter melted. Stir well.
- Add the creamed coconut and 4 desert spoons of water, or the equivalent in coconut milk.
- Add the whole egg amd mix. 
- Put the coconut flour and the baking soda powder. 
- Preheat a pan over medium heat
- Grease the pan with coconut oil
- Pour the whole amount of batter into the pan
- Put a lid on and cook for 2-3 minutes

- Flip and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes (tricky step as there is no gluten ...) It is not easy to get a well shaped pancake !)
- Add a little bit of coconut oil on your pancake, it s gonna be delicious !

Then for the Cacao Sauce:
- Heat some water
- In a bowl pour the cacao,the butter, the honey
- Pour the hot water onto the previous mixture, stirring well.
- Add the honey and the cardamom powder

Well ... A Table ! Bon Appetit !
