Here is an option for healthy pancakes without the sugar and typical flour. Almond flour (also sold as almond meal) is a gluten-free option that you can find in most well-stocked markets. Serve with fresh berries. (This recipe is adapted from The Better Brain Solution book)
Preparation Time: 10-15 minutes
Cooking Time: 5-10 minutes
Serves: 2-3 (makes about 6 medium pancakes)
1 cup almond flour/meal
¼ cup unsweetened coconut flakes
½ teaspoon aluminum-free baking powder
1/16 teaspoon sea salt
½ cup unsweetened almond milk
½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3 large organic, cage-free eggs, beaten
1 tablespoon organic ghee (clarified butter)
2 to 3 tablespoons almond butter
1 to 2 cups fresh berries of your choice
Combine the almond flour, coconut, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.
Combine the almond milk, vanilla, and beaten eggs in a separate bowl.
Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the egg mixture, mixing well.
Heat a pan to medium heat. Add the ghee and melt. Ladle the pancake batter into the pan and cook for 3 to 5 minutes. Flip and cook for another 2 to 4 minutes, until golden.
Heat the almond butter until warm and drizzle a spoonful over each stack of pancakes. Garnish with berries and serve.
