110g wholemeal flour

1 teaspoon of cocoa powder (good quality)

3 egg whites (we use two chicks)

1 tablespoon of desiccated coconut

1 grapefruit

Fresh coconut

200ml soya milk (could use dairy)

Combine the flour, desiccated coconut and cocoa powder in a bowl

Make a well in the center and pour in the 3 egg whites and start combining with a whisk

Add the milk and combine until smooth, leave to stand for 10 minutes

Heat a little oil in a pan (medium heat) and fry the pancake mix, ladle-full at a time until golden brown on both sides

Decorate with the fruit and enjoy

If you are feeling adventurous – pour the batter into a squeezy bottle a pipe into the pan into desured shapes (we made hearts)
