Primal Pancakes


So, I wanted pancakes this morning, but only had 3 eggs and had 3 mouths to feed. I took this recipe, improvised a little, and the results were pleasant!

(A note: I've never purchased almond flour, I just attempt to make my own in the food processor. It is probably more like a fine almond meal than a true flour, but it works.)

Ingredients:
  • 1 ½ c almond flour
  • ½ c raw milk (more if needed to thin)
  • 1 generous splash maple syrup
  • 1 t baking soda
  • 1 t baking powder
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • 3 eggs
  • 2-3 T coconut oil (totally guessing here, I just scooped 2 heaping Tablespoons worth)
  • butter for cooking
Blend all the ingredients in your blender or food processor. Set griddle to medium heat and melt some of your butter. Ladle the batter into whatever size you’d like. Once tiny, little bubbles form around the edges of the pancake, it’s ready to flip.  Re-grease your griddle with butter between batches.

I found these pancakes to be suprisingly light for a nut-based pancake.  My kids and I are weird, we eat them plain, with bananas on the side and milk to drink.

I had a few leftovers in the fridge, so I took picture just for you.  The butter, cinnamon, and vanilla make the house smell yummy!
