After a long sleepless night, I woke up wanting comfort food and I was convinced I’d feel better after eating some.
You see, your juice guzzling, Instagram posting, internet friend is sick. That’s right. I’m sick. I tried to convince myself that it was allergies and woke up Sunday morning feeling betrayed with a sore throat, painful coughing and congestion. How, oh how could all that nutrient and vitamin rich juice I drink fail me!? I feel like my juicing efforts were totally disrespected.
Now I could have just pulled out a box of pancake mix to satisfy my craving, but no. I had to make this meal an entire production (as sick as I am). Friends, if only you knew what goes into posting a meal on my blog–which is another blog post I will get to someday.
Let’s get down to the details.
Aren’t these almond flour mini pancakes cute? Their size, shape and fluffiness are perfectly imperfect, just the way I like them.
Almond Flour Mini Pancakes topped with Orange-Papapa Compote. That is the longest title ever. I could have just said gluten-free pancakes or almond flour pancakes, huh?
Almond Flour Pancakes
1 cup almond flour
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 tsp baking powder
dash of cinnamon
pinch of salt
1 cup almond milk
½ tsp. vanilla
2 tablespoons oil
Combine the almond flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in a medium-sized bowl and whisk well.
In another medium-sized bowl, combine the almond milk, vanilla, egg and oil. Whisk until well combined.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and whisk together until combined.
Preheat your skillet over medium heat, then spray it with a non-stick cooking spray.
Pour or scoop some batter out of the bowl into the skillet. (You can make larger pancakes than I made, just pour more of the batter into the skillet until the circle is the size you want)
Bubbles will start to form on the surface of your pancakes, and then pop. At this point, use a spatula and carefully flip each pancake over to cook the other side. The second side may not take as long to cook, depending on how hot your griddle is.
Repeat this process, spraying with cooking spray before pouring each pancake. This recipe yields approximately 5- 6 pancakes.
Enjoy your pancakes with butter and maple syrup, or even fruit. I made a compote of orange and papaya, for mine. Super delicious!
