Loving all the love for our lemon cardamom hazelnut waffles!
Many of you seemed intrigued about using hazelnut flour. We have a lot of recipe using it, like in our individual carob cake, mini cardamom donuts, and unbaked chocolate biscotti. We love the flavor it gives plus love the nutty texture! Let us know if you give hazelnut flour a try and how you used it.
Today we got another recipe for you guys! We experimented with a new pancake recipe this past weekend.
Our take on grain free pancakes.
We know there are many different views on “grain free” and what it means, etc. But according to this grain free site, many things we use are grain free. But again like most things, find your own view on things with how it works with you.
Making these grain free pancakes was super easy. We had a couple different skillets cooking as we had a lot of pancakes to cook, plus we were all hungry to eat.
We made some whipped bananas for a FUN topping along with traditional maple syrup. Basically we just threw about 1-2 bananas into our Vita-Mix and whipped till blended.
Plate full of pancakes! Life doesn’t get much better than that.
We were so pleased with how these pancakes and whipped bananas came together so nicely.
Purely Twins Grain Free Pancakes
*we doubled the recipe so it could feed 5 adults, so if you make these pancakes and not feeding 5 you will have extra pancakes you can freeze for later, or half the recipe to make less.
This recipe was inspired by our lemon almond pancakes (which are vegan)
- 1 1/2 cups hazelnut flour/meal
- 1/2 cup arrowroot starch
- 1/4 cup flax meal
- 4 tsp baking powder
- 20 drops of liquid stevia (or 2 tbsp sugar )
- 3 whole eggs
- 1 1/4 cups coconut buttermilk (place 1 cup + 2btsp or so of coconut milk into a measuring cup and add 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar, let sit for 10 minutes)
- 4 tbsp coconut oil, liquid
- 1 tsp cinnamon
Make sure all of your ingredients are at room temperature before beginning.
Place dry ingredients into a bowl. Make your coconut buttermilk and let sit for at least 10 minutes. Get your skillet heating up with a little coconut oil or butter.
Add you 3 eggs to your pancake batter and whisk together as you add in your buttermilk. Once combined add in coconut oil and whisk till blended.
Scoop pancake batter onto hot skillet and let cook. When you start to see bubbles and the sides form, flip and let let cook a few more minutes.
We whipped up some bananas for a nice topping.
Twins Question: What do you think of grain free? What do you think of the new trend starting? We find it funny how everyone is doing grain free recipes, just like how gluten free trend started happening.
till next time,
