Delicious and most importantly EASY . . .
A short stack of these almond flour pancakes will load you up with protein, vitamin A, folate, magnesium, vitamin E and more. Though there are fancier recipes out there (like, um, banana chocolate chip pancakes), this basic version one of my favorites. We love them on busy weekday morning’s or piled up high at a leisurely Saturday brunch.
Serve with the traditional butter and maple syrup, or if you want to mix things up give these a try:
- Add bacon to the mix (goes great with our old friends, butter and maple syrup)
- Top with homemade strawberry freezer jam
- Or homemade peach freezer jam
- Chocolate chips (I like this brand)
- Whipped cream and fresh berries
- Sprinkled with cinnamon and honey
- Almond butter with sliced bananas
- Homemade nutella
- Make a savory version with sour cream and salmon roe over the top
- Cream cheese, smoked salmon and capers
- Use the pancakes as sandwich rounds and fill them with bacon, eggs and cheese
- Homemade caramel sauce
There are tons of possibilities, so have fun and get creative!
A Quick Note On Your Pan
If you want to ditch your non-stick cookware but don’t want to give up perfect pancakes, hop over and check out this tutorial on breaking in a new cast iron pan. When properly seasoned, cast iron skillets work beautifully as an alternative to Teflon, and they don’t release the six toxic gases that have been documented with synthetic non-stick coatings, some of which are potent enough to kill pet birds.

I love my trusty cast iron skillet, and I’m so happy I made the switch.
