The new year always feels like a bright new beginning. It is the perfect opportunity to begin new projects and improve what we could have done better the previous year, and it’s no surprise that making better food choices is always at the top of people’s New Year’s resolutions list. Unfortunately, it’s also no surprise that this is the first resolution to be broken. But why break it on the first day of the year? January 1st calls for a celebratory New Year’s breakfast that will welcome the next 12 months in a spirit of abundance. Despite what most people think, this can be done while keeping the promise of eating wholesome foods at the same time. Making pancakes and adding large amounts of fruit to them (instead of whipped cream, chocolate chips, and the like) is the perfect example. Make them with whole wheat instead of refined white flour, and coconut oil instead of butter, and you have an almost perfect way to start the year. Buen provecho! MORE + LESS -

  • 1
    Sift the flour, salt, and baking powder together in a bowl.
  • 2
    Sift the sugar in the same bowl.
  • 3
    Beat the egg with a fork.
  • 4
    Mix the coconut oil, milk, 2 tablespoons applesauce and egg. Add to the dry ingredients and mix well, until you have a smooth dough. If it’s too thick, add some more applesauce.
  • 5
    Mix in the berries cut in half.
  • 6
    You can use this dough immediately, or make it in advance, cover it, and put it in the fridge for a few hours.
  • 7
    Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat and, when very hot, add 2 tablespoons of the dough. Spread a little with a spatula, if it doesn’t do it on its own.
  • 8
    Fry for 3 minutes on one side, and 2 minutes on the other.
  • 9
    Clean the pan with a paper towel, and continue with the rest of the dough. If it’s a large pan, you can make more than 1 pancake at a time.
  • 10
    Beat the yogurt and the honey in a bowl.
  • 11
    Serve a stack of pancakes on each plate, covered with berries, and pour some yogurt on top.

Expert Tips

  • If you don’t have a non-stick pan, you will have to fry the pancakes with some oil.
  • If the dough is still too thick, you can add a little bit of water, until it has the right consistency.
  • To keep the first pancakes warm while you make the rest, put them in one layer on a toweled baking sheet, in the oven at 200ºF.
