Ingredients - Serves 4

225g Buckwheat flour
1tsp Baking powder
275ml Goats Milk
200g Blueberries (fresh)
Good pinch of salt
Coconut oil for frying
200g Coyo (Natural)
To make the compote add the berry mix, water and coconut sugar to a pan bring to the boil. Simmer for 10-15mins until the fruit is starting to break down and the liquid has a syrupy consistency.
Pancakes – mix the dry ingredients to together. Whisk the milk and egg together. Gradually mix the milk and egg mixture into the dry mix. Gently mix in the fresh blueberries. Heat a heavy based frying pan and add 1tsp of coconut oil. Ladle in a spoonfuls of the mixture to form the pancakes.
