It's WeekNight Bite Wednesday and it's been way too long my friends! I finally got myself back in the kitchen with my patient (and hungry) husband behind the camera, and I'm super excited to share these fluffy, delicious pancakes with you. I've been testing out a lot of pancake recipes and my goal was to make gluten-free pancakes that had the same softness, sweetness, and fluff of the classic pancakes we all know and love. After lots of trial runs (and too many flops), I finally found the perfect combination of ingredients and the result was heavenly! These pancakes are packed with fiber, healthy fats, and protein, and I promise they don't taste anything like a low-carb, healthy pancake. Top these flapjacks (or should we say flaxjacks) with your favorite fruits, pure maple syrup, and a bit of powdered sugar, and even the most serious bruncher will be a happy camper.
Oh man, I just drooled as I was typing and staring at this picture. Now for the recipe:
1 cup blanched almond meal
1/4 cup coconut flour
2 tbsp flaxseed meal
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tbsp coconut oil (melted)
2 tbsp pure maple syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
Toppings: your favorite berries, banana, powdered sugar, and maple syrup
Serving: Makes 12 medium sized pancakes
1. Mix together all dry ingredients
2. In a separate bowl, mix wet ingredients
3. Pour wet ingredients into dry. If batter is too thick, add a bit more almond milk.
4. Spray your pan and wait until it is hot.
5. Cook your pancakes! About 1-2 minutes per side.
6. Serve with all of your favorite toppings!
What's better than a lazy weekend morning (or an ambitious weekday morning) and homemade pancakes? Nothing! Enjoy! :)
