Almond Flour Pancakes

I've never used almond flour before but bought some yesterday.  I'm trying to change the diet of everyone in our house to a bit more healthy and trying to eliminate some sugars and grains like regular flour and replace them with fruits and veggies.  So I'm trying some new recipes these days like this one here.  I love trying new things and when I saw this recipe I thought hmm, worth a shot.  It was unbelievably difficult to flip these pancakes without them falling apart everywhere but they were extremely tasty.  I think I need one of those super thin spatulas.  Of course, they aren't exactly like a regular pancake with taste and fluffiness as they are made neither with white flour and they don't have leavening agents in them.  I feel like this recipe, with a bit of tweaking can become a new Saturday morning breakfast in our house.  I chopped a bunch of strawberries up on top and the combination of the nutty almond flour and strawberries was absolutely delicious.

Almond Flour Pancakes

1 c. almond flour (also called almond meal)
2 eggs
1 tbsp. honey
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
a pinch of salt
coconut oil (for greasing the pan)

Combine the eggs, honey, and vanilla and whisk together.  Add in the almond flour, cinnamon and salt and whisk until just combined.  Heat a pan over medium heat and add a splash of the coconut oil so it doesn't stick.  Add about 1/8 cup of the batter quickly turning the pan a bit to make sure it spreads out.  Cook until golden brown and flip and cook another minute or two. Serve with berries and a bit of pure maple syrup.

  7. They look yummy, and I have a very thin spatula and the almond flour. I just found bisquick made with rice flour, gluten free. I may try that too.
    Thanks for the inspiration to keep trying those "other" flours.

  8. Yeah I'm always interested in trying new things and I've never used almond or coconut flour before so it is nice to jump in there and see what happens. Next I need to figure out what to do with my coconut flour!

  9. I have some almond pulp in my freezer from when I make almond milk. I saw something the other day that tells you how to make almond flour with the pulp. I just might have to try this! Thanks for linking up on Recipes I Can't Wait to Try!
