Dont we all love pancakes for breakfast and or snack? Pancakes are easier to make plus they taste so good. Unfortunately, pancakes can also be very unhealthy and easily contribute to weight gain unless you choose healthier ingredients like Almond flour, organic eggs and coconut oil as opposed to margarine. Coconut oil has huge benefits including brain and gut health.
Another great way of keeping it healthy is toppings. We tend to use maple syrup which is basically sugar- greatest downfall of pancakes. We can use fruits (healthy sugar) as opposed to syrup and crushed nuts (cashew, almonds) and they give you the same taste if not better. Great choices include berries and apples.
Here is my Almond flour recipe that i use every week.
2 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp raw honey
3 large organic eggs
¼ cup coconut or almond milk
½ tsp vanilla extract
¼ cup sifted almond flour
½ tsp lemon juice or white vinegar
1/8 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp sea salt.
Method; Cream together the coconut oil and honey. Add the eggs one at a time. Add coconut milk and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth. Add the almond flour. Mix until smooth. Lastly add lemon juice, baking soda and salt. Do not over mix. Use coconut oil to fry.
