Fluffy Pancakes

Ingredients

  • 40 g lupin flour 
  • 10 g almond flour
  • 2 teaspoons erythritol or 1/8 tsp pure monkfruit extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons melted butter coconut oil or ghee
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4-6 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk

Method

  • Mix lupin flour, almond flour, sweetener, baking powder, xanthan gum and salt in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • Whisk thoroughly together in a medium bowl the eggs, butter and vanilla extract. Whisk in the dry ingredients followed by the milk, a tablespoon at a time. You can play with the thickness a bit, but I found the best consistency to be with 4 TBSP (the batter is thicker than with regular pancakes, but will spread easily into a round). Allow the batter to rest for 10 minutes while you heat up a skillet or pan.
  • Add a little butter to the pan, pour in about 1/4 cup of batter, spreading it slightly to help it form a nice round (you can use a wet spoon or spatula). Cook over medium heat until the top begins to darken, flip and cook for 2-3 minutes more. Serve right away with toppings of choice.

Baking with lupin

Lupin products can be used in both sweet and savoury recipes, but we know a lot of our customers especially love to bake with lupin. Here’s some of their tips about how to perfect substituting lupin into their traditional recipes!

  1. Replace 1 cup self-raising flour with 1 cup lupin flour + 1 tsp baking powder. This will make sure the cake/biscuit rises the same amount.
  2. You can usually use the same ratio of lupin flour to wet ingredients as you would for plain flour. In bigger batches, you might like to add 5% more wet ingredients.
  3. Lupin flour is great for making recipes especially dense – ideal to substitute in for your brownies, biscuits and cakes to get the chewy texture.

Chicken salt potato balls

Ingredients

  • 1.5kg sebago potatoes, washed
  • 100g grated cheddar
  • 60ml (¼ cup) cream
  • 2 tsp chicken salt, plus extra, to serve
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup lupin crumb
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 40g (¼ cup) lupin flour
  • ¾ cup crushed toasted protein flakes
  • Sunflower or vegetable oil spray
  • Mayonnaise/jalapeno sauce, to serve

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C/180°C fan forced. Place potatoes on a baking tray and roast for 1 hour or until just tender. Allow to cool before peeling and placing in a large bowl. Use a potato masher or ricer to mash until smooth.
  2. Stir in the cheese, cream, half the chicken salt, 1 egg and half the lupin crumb and breadcrumbs until well combined. Line a large baking tray with baking paper.
  3. Use a fork to whisk the remaining egg in a bowl. Place the lupin flour and remaining chicken salt in a shallow bowl. Combine the remaining crumbs and flake crumbs in a large bowl.
  4. Roll a heaped tablespoon of potato mixture into a ball. Roll in the flour mixture, then dip in egg (allowing excess to drip off) and roll in crumbs, pressing gently to coat. Place on the prepared tray. Repeat until all potato mixture is used.
  5. Spray potato balls with oil. Place 9-12 balls in an air fryer, leaving room around each ball so they crisp up nicely. Air fry at 200°C for 10 minutes or until balls are crisp and golden. Repeat with remaining balls.
  6. Serve potato balls sprinkled with extra chicken salt and with mayo on the side for dipping.
