For the topping: 1-2 Tbsp of Maple Syrup (or to taste)
3 Tbsp Water
Put the coconut milk, ground almonds, lucuma, desiccated coconut, sunflower seeds, honey, vanilla, bicarbonate of soda and (optionally) salt into a blender and whizz for 30-60 seconds.
Put into large batter jug.
Whisk in the eggs until the consistency of a typical pancake batter is achieved.
Add the poppy seeds.
Optionally, leave to stand in a fridge for an hour.
Heat up a non-stick frying pan and grease it with coconut oil.
Add a thick layer of batter to the pan (around a tenth of the batter).
Because the pancakes are thick, allow around 4 minutes per side.
Remember that the pancakes are brittle as they do not contain flour - so use a plate to turn the pancake over, rather than flipping it.
Before doing each subsequent pancake, re-grease the pan with coconut oil.
To make the compote: simply soak the blackberries in the water for 10 minutes and add maple syrup to taste.
About the Paleo Diet
The Paleo Diet is a way of thinking about food based on what our pre-civilisation ancestors may have eaten. It takes its cues from the hunter-gatherer lifestyle and hence incorporates nuts, seeds and fruit rather than grains or refined foods. The Paleo Diet is thus quite high in protein, fibre and essential nutrients, and low in refined carbohydrates - making it simply a sensible way of eating. It's a contrast from crash-diets such as Atkins or Dukan, which are a bit extreme. Atkins and Dukan diets restrict you from eating fruit and vegetables, which we think is terrible!
There is no strict definition of the Paleo Diet, and indeed we don't advocate too much rigidity - instead preferring that people eat a varied diet. One variant of the Paleo Diet is the Primal Diet, which allows a little rule-bending to allow things like cheese. In general, most of your favourite recipes can be re-worked to be Paleo or Primal, and hence we call this diet the "Delicious Diet"!
