Grain free, gluten free, dairy free, refined sugar free and GUILT free!
Yesterday I had a bit of a non-stop day. I woke up and had a couple eggs, then drove down to my grandparents house to help out with some Christmas cooking and cleaning. I didn’t eat anything for the rest of the day, (I know, so bad!) so when I got home I was hangry as can be. This, coupled with being around family and Christmas so close around the corner, left me dying for some comfort food. But what to eat that’s AIP friendly? Well, after searching my heart and listening to my stomach, I decided I NEEDED some pancakes. It’s been ages! And honestly, I really wasn’t in the mood for the banana + 2 eggs kind that I normally make. I wanted the real deal.
So, after scouring Pinterest for something delicious and doable, I came across some almond flour pancakes from The Roasted Root. I modified the recipe a bit, and was a little nervous about how they would turn out. But, my fears subsided at the first bite. DELICIOUS! I lived it up and dumped some maple syrup on there, (and some bacon on the side too), and ended dinner feeling so full and happy!
Also like I need to go workout and put all these carbs to good use. Haha. These are very versatile, so feel free to add whatever seasoning you desire, berry topping, etc.
Anyway, without further ado, here is my delicious recipe for these festive holiday pancakes!
– 1-3/4 C Almond Flour
– 1 Tsp Baking Powder
– 1/4 Tsp Salt 2 Tsp Cinnamon
– 1/2 Tsp Nutmeg *see note below
– 1 Tsp Pure Vanilla
– 2 Eggs lightly beaten
– 3/4 C Almond or Coconut Milk (I used a blend!)
1. Whisk eggs, vanilla and milk in a mixing bowl.
2. Mix in the flour and spices until smooth.
3. Heat a large skillet just beyond medium and add oil to coat the pan.
4. Measure about 1/4 C of batter into skillet for each pancake.
5. When done, flip the pancakes (gently!), and cook a about a minute extra on the other side.
(Note: one batch makes about 9 pancakes.)
*Nutmeg is not technically AIP approved. I cheated a bit with this ingredient! Feel free to add whatever AIP approved seasonings you desire, or just leave out the nutmeg! 🙂
** Also note that if you are currently in the elimination phase of AIP, neither nut products or eggs are advised. 🙂
