Banting “Vetkoek”

Banting “Vetkoek”

1/3 cup Coconut flour
1 pinch Salt
1/2 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Psyllium Husks
2 Eggs
1/4-1/3 cup Milk/Cream
Sift the dry ingredients together.
Beat the eggs with 1/4 cup of milk and add to the dry ingredients. Allow the mixture to stand for a minute to firm up. If it is too stiff, add the rest of the milk.
Heat enough coconut oil in a pan to cover the base of the pan.
Turn the heat down to LOW and either scoop spoons full of batter into the pan, or you can roll into balls and press down slightly.
Fry each side for 2-3 minutes.
These burn easily so FRY ON LOW HEAT.
Only turn them once after frying on the one side.
Cut them open and serve with butter and your choice of filling

Vetkoek  Tried Tested

Comments by Suria Meyer: A while ago you posted a recipe for banting vetkoek. While this is a bit far from traditional vetkoek it is a good recipe.
I don’t follow the banting lifestyle as I can’t get my head around eating that much fat. But I do limit carbs and like to try new things.
I did not like them in oil, they came out too oily so I used a nonstick pan, made them into balls, flattened a bit and baked with the lid on. They came out perfect!
I also tried the batter a bit more runny for flapjacks but it’s a bit difficult to turn them.
In the foto top left is the original version and the other 2 at the top is my favourite. The bottom one is the flapjack version that came out in heart shape by accident.
