    1. Add all the pancake ingredients to a large bowl and whisk together until smooth. Set aside for 30 minutes. 

    2. Once the batter has sat for 30 minutes, add some coconut oil to a large frying pan and bring it to high heat.
    3. Pour a ladle of the batter into the pan, swirling around to coat the base and slightly up the sides of the pan. Let the batter cook for about 5 minutes, or until it is crispy round the sides and golden on the base. 
    4. Remove from the heat, scatter with your chosen fillings and then fold in half. 
    5. Repeat with the rest of the batter and ingredients. 
    6. Just before serving, drizzle with the sauce.
