This may take about 3-5 minutes. Now close with the lid and keep it in the fridge after 30 minutes of resting in the kitchen counter. Batter will thick yet slightly runny.
Step 3. Next day morning, take it out of the fridge and add the carob power, nutmeg powder, 1/2 tsp baking powder and if needed 3 tsp milk to help mix all well together. Let it rest outside for about 20 minutes before making the Pancakes.
Step 4. Place your pan on heat. Wait for it heat evenly. Take a medium small ladle spoon and use to pour the batter on the pan, use coconut oil to pour on top, while cooking the pancakes. About 2 tsp on each. Cook on both the sides unit golden brown, lay them on the large plate, not to place them on top of each other, until you have added the maple syrup on each pancakes.
