Recipe: Flourless Pancakes

I. Love. Pancakes. Almost to an inappropriate degree. I knew I would need a <good> pancake alternative when I began turning Mediterranean. 

Most wheat flours I've looked at have been discouraging upon checking the ingredients, but almond flour has one ingredient. Almonds. Imagine that. Almond flour is just very finely ground almonds - the basis of this (white) flourless pancake. 

I'm happy with the outcome: a bit sweet and bit nutty. Like regular pancakes with an earthy kick. 

Let's do this.

1.5 cups almond flour

pinch of salt
2 eggs
1 tbsp pure honey
1/4 cup organic milk

Mix all ingredients together until well combined. Heat olive oil over medium heat. Pour 1/4 cup of batter on skillet. Flip after the edges are firm. Cook on reverse side 30/45 seconds. Makes about 7 medium pancakes.

Syrup Alternative
Rather than smothering my healthy pancakes with unhealthy syrup, I mixed 2 tbsp plain Greek yogurt and 1 tbsp pure honey together, put a couple dollops on top and sliced a banana over it.

  1. At the beginning of this post I wanted to skip to the comment section and yell "THAT'S NOT A PANCAKE!!!" "PANCAKE FRAUD!!!". If I lived near you, I would wait until you stepped out of your house and I would throw flour all over you in protest.

    But, because I have faith in your love of tasty foods, I pressed on and actually really liked the sounds of this recipe!!!

    It actually came at the perfect time too. I've been craving pancakes, but refuse to make them until my parents mail me some maple syrup from Vermont (from their trees!)...but with this recipe, I might be able to satisfy a craving without turning to Aunt J.

    1. Oh yeah - save a nice fluffy, floury pancake for some fresh tapped syrup. A little guilt free almond and honey pancake while you wait is a great idea though. I'm not saying I'll never eat a real pancake again (cause let's get real) but these are quite tasty.

      By the way, if you flour bombed me over this, I would understand. A total Timmy Timmons moment, I would have. "We've been going about this all wrong. I blame myself."
