Cinnamon Almond Pancakes

almond pancakes

This is a great recipe for folks who are gluten-free or who are on the GAPS or Specific Carbohydrate diet. Easy to make and tasty. This recipe also makes fantastic waffles.

Serves 3

  • 3-4 eggs separated
  • 2 T fat (butter, lard, etc)
  • 1 c almond flour
  • 1/2 c apple sauce
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • 1/4 c kefir or yogurt (optional)
  • 1 T honey (optional)
  • 1/2 t salt

Method:
Mix the egg yolks, fat, apple sauce, almond flour and cinnamon. I like to add a bit of yogurt or kefir and to pretend that it is a sourdough pancake, but that is optional. Just add a bit more apple sauce if the consistency is too thick. I use home-made apple sauce which has a lot of flavor and is quite sweet, so you can also add honey if you like a sweeter pancake.

Whip the egg whites up until they form stiff peaks. Fold them gently into the other mixture and fry by the spoonful on a hot griddle with lots of butter or lard. Serve them with home-made apple sauce and kefir or yogurt!

    Those look absolutely divine. I would love to try them, but I’m not certain where in the Bahamas I could find almond flour 🙁
