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.
- 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
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!
