Almond Flour Pancakes

This recipe is all over the internet, but I reproduce it here for my own convenience, and because some people with histamine intolerance tolerate almond flour.

1⅓ cup blanched almond flour

1 tsp baking powder

¼ tsp sea salt

¼ cup milk of any type (+ 1-2 Tbs depending on batter pour and pan spread)

2 large eggs

1 tbsp pure maple syrup, more for serving

1 tsp vanilla

Dash almond extract if desired.

  1.       In a medium bowl, whisk together the almond flour, baking powder, and salt.
  2.       In a small bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, maple syrup, and vanilla.
  3.       Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients and stir until the batter is smooth.
  4.       Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-low heat. Brush the pan with a little olive oil and use a ¼-cup measuring cup to pour the batter onto the pan. Cook the pancakes for 1 to 2 minutes per side, turning the heat to low as needed so that the middles cook without burning the outsides.
  5.       Serve with maple syrup and top with blueberries.

Here’s a Mediterranean diet friendly version!

1⅓ cup blanched almond flour

1 tsp baking powder

The whites of 4 large eggs

2tsp heart healthy oil (canola would work but we use a 1:16 parts olive oil/flax seed oil blend).

¼ cup skim milk of any type (+ 1-2 Tbs depending on batter pour and pan spread)

1 tbsp vanilla

Dash almond extract if desire

1. Combine dry ingredients and whisk together.

1. Whip egg whites until soft peaks form.

2. Heat iron pancake skillet over medium flame.

3. Fold milk, vanilla, almond extract if using, and oil into the egg whites.

4. Fold dry ingredients into the egg white mixture.

5. Scoop mix into pan (don’t flatten).

6. Pour 1 TBS of water into the pan lid, then fit lid onto pan.

7. Steam pancakes for 2 minutes on medium heat.

8. Remove lid and ease a pancake onto a spatula. Treat pan with a few drops of extra oil, then flip the pancake’s uncooked side onto the oil

9. Cook about 2 minutes more until pancakes are firm in the middle.

10. Serve with lightly stewed blueberries or other fresh fruit of your choice.
