In my experience over the last 6 months of eating a raw diet, the simplest ideas are always the best. Today I made a simple raw pancake and it was the best.
I have just added to my expanding raw food library, a couple of Ani Phyo's raw books, and I am very thankful I did. I love her ideals on raw recipes -meals that are simple with ingredients that are living, not just raw. A cracker that has been dehydrated for 2 days can be still a raw food, but not living - the life and water has dried up.
The first recipe I trialled was her breakfast cakes - so simple and so quick..and so tasty! An instant hit with everyone!
2 cups of linseed ground
1/2 cup agave syrup
2 tablespoons of coconut oil
1/2 pinch of salt
1/4 cup of water
Combine then roll and flatten into cakes..top with fruit and syrup..yes that easy.

I think I will try to expand on the recipe next time and add a mashed banana, maybe some vanilla powder, chopped 'activated' walnuts, blueberries....
I served these wonderful little cakes up for breakfast to everyone and every plate was licked clean with requests for more! I even had 2 serves....:)

And here is a variation that we created:
Little sweet linseed balls.
1 cup of ground linseed
1 ripe banana
2 Tblsp coconut oil
Big blog of raw honey
Blend until well combined, roll into balls and cover in shredded coconut.
The kids ate these within minutes!
