If you've followed my blog for anytime at all you know that we are gluten free as well as partially dairy free(have kids allergic to lactose) and sometimes it's a challenge to find recipes that we like that I can make to accommodate a growing family, a LARGE growing family!
This recipe left us satisfied, tasted good, and best of all fit with our new recipe challenge of trying to go on the GAPS diet for a while. We will not do the total GAPS introduction challenge until after I give birth to our next little girl in May, but we are already trying to cut out all starches and other things to get closer to a Paleo or GAPS diet while still maintaining the diet I need for a healthy pregnancy.
Now onto the recipe!
Like I mentioned I found this recipe on another blog and then made some changes to suit what we like around here. This recipe is tripled from the original and will make 40-45 small pancakes. This is about 4 pancakes per person. I have some that are entering a growth spurt who are eating more than me right now!
18 eggs(yeap you read that right 18)
1 cup milk---we used coconut milk but I think almond would work well or any milk could be used
1 cup coconut oil(melted)---- you can also use butter for this and it will turn out just as yummy
4-1/2 cups almond flour packed----I used Honeyville blanched almond flour, I don't know how other brands will turn out
1-1/2 tsp baking soda
3 tsp apple cider vinegar
Mix together everything except for the apple cider vinegar in a large bowl.
I used a fork to beat the eggs, then added the milk again beating with the fork.
Next, I added the coconut oil and blended that in with my fork.
After this I put the almond flour and baking soda in the bowl and mixed thoroughly.
You want to get all the lumps out. This would be easier and faster with a mixer, but I presently am without a mixer so do everything by hand. It really is not that hard to mix this by hand.
Lastly you need to add the apple cider vinegar and mix that in as well.
I want to note the original recipe also included salt, vanilla, and honey in the recipe but we did not use any of these. If you do want a sweeter pancake I suggest adding around 2 Tb of honey to this or 2 tsp of stevia powder.
I use an electric griddle to make my pancakes because I can get 6 pancakes done at once. I used a 1/4 cup measuring cup to ladle out the batter onto the griddle which I had preheated to 400 degrees F.
Cook them on one side until they begin to bubble, flip and cook the other side until both are golden brown. These smell wonderful while cooking and do not fall apart like so many other recipes do.
|Very yummy almond flour pancakes!|
I did have one child comment that they tasted "eggy" but she ate her fair share so I don't think that was a deterrent!
