So it’s Halloween and in my house no meal is safe from being gorified! I don’t know if ‘gorified’ is even a real word but I’m sure that you all get the point!

These pancakes are super healthy, yummy and well uhhhhh gory! Yeaaaaah!

What makes these pancakes a lovely green colour is the Barleygrass powder that the wonderful people at Naturya sent me!

Makes: 8 Pancakes

Preparation Time: 5 minutes

Cooking Time: 20 minutes


For the ‘zombie’ pancakes:

1 large banana
1 tsp vanilla essence (optional but delicious)
1 tbsp coconut sugar
1 tbsp maple syrup
4 eggs
1 cup tapioca flour
1.5 to 2 tbsp barleygrass powder
2 tbsp almond flour
1 tbsp milled chia seeds
1 tbsp coconut flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp bicarbonate if soda

1.5 tbsp coconut oil to fry these beauties in!

For the ‘blood sauce’:

2 cups frozen raspberries
1 cup frozen blueberries
1/3 cup coconut sugar
1 tbsp water


  1. Mash together your banana, vanilla essence, and coconut sugar in a medium sized mixing bowl.
  2. Whisk in your eggs and maple syrup thoroughly.
  3. Add your barleygrass powder, milled chia seeds and flours, mixing until you get a smooth batter.
  4. Lastly add in your baking powder and bicarbonate of soda mixing thoroughly.
  5. Place a medium sized frying pan on a high heat and add your coconut oil.
  6. Once the oil has melted reduce the heat and place 2 generous sized tbsp of the batter into the pan.
  7. Using the back of the spoon shape into a perfect circle!
  8. Once the top of the pancake looks semi firm (should take about 1 minute) flip over and cook for a further minute.
  9. For the blood sauce place the frozen berries, water and coconut sugar into a medium sized pan and cook on a low heat until simmering. Make sure to squash down the berries as much as possible.  This will take around 10 minutes max.
  10. Increase the heat to a medium heat and cook for a further 5 minutes until the sauce reduces down.
  11. Pour the sauce into a food processor and blend until smooth.
  12. Pour the sauce through a sieve into a measuring  jug (or something that is easy to pour from).
  13. Once you have cooked all of your pancakes, stack them high and pour your ‘blood’ all over… gory!
