I’ve never met a homemade pancake I didn’t love! This recipe is super easy because all you have to do is pour the entire batter into a baking pan and then pop it in the oven. No waiting, no flipping, no splish-splashing of coconut oil on the pan—nothing! Then, all you have to do is bake it and it’s ready to enjoy. That’s what I call magic! I adapted this wonderful recipe from Lianne’s newly updated and revised cookbook Sprout Right.
This cookbook is an essential read for families planning to have a baby, or those of you with babies, school-age children, or any kids in between, and beyond. It answers every question you might have from breastfeeding to essential nutrients for kids. But no matter what life stage you’re at, I’m pretty sure you’ll love this recipe!
This recipe is gluten-free, paleo-friendly (if you use ghee instead of butter) and only contains 6 ingredients!
I know many of you are sensitive to dairy, so rest assured, this recipe works just as well with ghee! If you’re really motivated, make your own ghee . It’s far cheaper and very rewarding! In fact, I have a whole video on my YouTube channel on how to make it.
The great thing about ghee is that all the dairy proteins are removed in the process of making it, which makes it ideal for those with food allergies or sensitivities. If you’re using butter, I recommend grass-fed or certified organic butter. My preference is usually grass-fed, but it’s a little more pricey. However, it’s higher in nutrients such as CLA, beta-carotene and more.
The pancake all on its own (before you add toppings) has a lovely texture and it’s not too dense, especially considering the main ingredient is almond flour. I took things one step further and sautéed some apples and pecans for the topping—just like I did in my Apple Walnut French Toast from Joyous Health—a recipe I’ve been making for years!
There is something so cozy about cooked apples, don't you think? Since I was a little girl, my mom would bake apples for a healthy dessert. The smell that filled our home was pure JOY. Note, that you’re actually not baking them here, but sauteing them. They will still smell heavenly!
Once you’ve got your apple pecan mixture ready and your pancakes are baked, place a generous amount on the pancakes, drizzle with maple syrup and you’re good to go!
This recipe is great if you’re entertaining because you don’t need to be a slave to your kitchen and you can socialize instead while you sip on your Rise and Shine Latte . I’m a big fan of that!
I made a couple of adjustments to the original recipe which I’ve noted below in the recipe.
