  • Harvest Grain & Nut Pancakes

    • 3/4 c. oatmeal
    • 3/4 c. whole wheat flour
    • 1/4 c. sugar
    • 2 tsp. baking soda
    • 1 tsp. baking powder
    • 1 tsp. cinnamon
    • 1/2 tsp. salt
    • 1 1/2 c. milk
    • 1/4 c. vegetable oil
    • 1 egg
    • 3 Tbsp. finely chopped almonds
    • 3 Tbsp. finely chopped walnuts

    If you choose, you can grind the oatmeal into a fine powder in a blender or food processor; I prefer to leave the oatmeal as is. Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. In another bowl combine milk, oil and egg and add to dry ingredients, stir until mixed. Stir in nuts. Ladle by 1/4 cupfuls onto hot greased griddle. Flip when bottoms are browned and bubbles form in the middle.

and for the gluten-free:


Fluffy Coconut Flour Pancakes

  • 4 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 c. milk (raw cow's or coconut)
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 1/2 c. coconut flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt (optional)

Preheat griddle greased with coconut oil or butter over medium-low heat.  In a small bowl bet eggs until frothy, about 2 minutes.  Mix in milk, vanilla, and honey.   Add coconut flour, baking soda, and salt and whisk together. 

Ladle 1/4 c. of batter onto hot griddle.  Cook for a few minutes on each side until the tops dry out slightly and the bottoms start to brown.  Flip and cook an additional 1 to 3 minutes.

Serve hot with butter, nut butter, honey, maple syrup, or fruit.

Makes 8 to 10 pancakes.



Pumpkin Pancakes


* 1/8 - 1/4 tsp. baking soda

* pinch of salt

* 1/2 Tbsp pumpkin pie spice

* 1/2 cup almond flour

* 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

* 1/4 cup canned pumpkin

* 1 tbsp honey

* 2 eggs

Combine the dry ingredients together in one bowl, then in another bowl combine the wet ingredients. Then toss the wet ingredients into the dry and mix thoroughly. Let mixture sit for 2 or 3 minutes.

Cook in a pan on medium heat like a normal pancake.

Makes 6 medium sized pancakes. The pancakes will look a lot darker (and orange-er) than normal, but are still delicious!!


Note:  I quadrupled the recipe and I think it made closer to 12 - 15 pancakes for us.  We used 1/4 c. batter per pancake.  I didn't care for the pumpkin pie spice and may make my own mixture of spices (cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves) for the next batch.  They stuck to the pan a bit so I will use coconut oil to heavily grease the griddle next time.



Almond Flour Pancakes

  • 1 c. almond flour
  • 1/2 c. applesauce
  • 1 Tbsp. coconut flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 c. water in which 1/4 tsp. baking soda is dissolved
  • 2 Tbsp. melted butter or coconut oil
  • pinch of salt

Combine all ingredients in a bowl.  The batter will appear a little thicker than normal mix.  Drop by 1/4 cupfuls onto a lightly oiled non-stick griddle or frying pan over medium heat.  Use the scoop to shape the pancakes.  Flip like a normal pancake when bottoms are a nice golden brown.  Let the second side brown, also, before removing from griddle.

I really enjoyed these.  I got 8 pancakes out of one batch.



Gluten-Free/Dairy-Free waffles

  • 2 egg whites
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 c. coconut milk
  • 2/3 c. applesauce
  • 2 Tbsp. vanilla
  • 1 1/2 c. almond flour
  • 3 Tbsp. coconut flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • couple of dashes of nutmeg

Beat egg whites to soft peaks.  Set aside.  Whisk eggs until frothy and add eggs, coconut milk, applesauce, and vanilla.

Sift dry ingredients together and add to the wet ingredients.  Mix well.  Fold in egg whites.

Bake in a lightly greased waffle iron.  These do brown quickly!
