Almond Flax flapjacks.

13 Mar

I always make pancakes on Sundays. Always. If I dont, I’m sick. Im not the only one who looks forward to pancake sunday. Floyd the pug also does. I’ve never seen him so pissed off as when I accidentally put chocolate chips in the entire batch. How ignorant of me. Anyways, with that being said Ive got others who rely on pancake Sunday. 

I got to thinking that pancakes are such a nice idea…why should they be limited to weekends? The problem with pancakes is that there laborious. At least mine are. I’ve worked so hard to achieve the ultimate fluffiness whilst using alternative flours such as spelt, buckwheat and kamut ( all temperamental flours of course). Anyways I crafted this easy peasy, HEALTHY as heck recipe to cater to those who wont stand for limiting pancakes to one day a week. Keep in mind that these are NOT your typical IHOP pancakes, but take them for what they are. This is a pancake you can feel good about. Drenching in maple syrup is fully encouraged.

Almond flax flapjacks. Makes 4 wee pancakes or enough for 1 lady.

  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons almond flour ( if you don’t have almond flour you can just grind slivered almonds into a flour)
  • 2 tablespoons flax OR 1 tablespoon flax and 1 tablespoon ground hemp seeds.
  • 1 tablespoon dark cocoa
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon sugar or 1 packet stevia
  • pinch of salt.

Directions: mix mix mix it up! make sure that the eggs are welllllll incorporated. Set mixture aside for five minutes while you heat up your nonstick pan.

pour 1/4 of the batter and let set for approximately 1.5 minutes on each side. Enjoy!

Topping ideas:

lemon shavings, dried coconut, maple syrup, agave, yogourt, almond butter sauce

Famous Almond butter sauce: Adapted from Angela’s ‘ Oh She Glows’

  • 2 tablespoons almond butter
  • 2 tablespoon almond milk ( vanilla preferably)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch cloves (optional)
  • 1 packet stevia/ 1/2 tablespoon maple syrup

Directions: mix mix mix. If your almond butter is getting to the end and its a bit hard just keep mixing. This is when most give up but dont! Keep going because this sauce is so good you will cry.

      Hey jane! If your going to opt for the white flour I cant say it will work because I haven’t tried it.
