Repost from February 2015
The moment I saw more snow start to fall this evening, I decided my clean PANCAKES would be the perfect thing to warm my soul! This recipe took me quite some time to master...and since they make me SO happy, I thought I should spread the love and share my "top secret", EASY recipe! Doesn't hurt that they're gluten free, sugar free, gluten free, dairy free, right? The one thing I want in exchange for this recipe: please make sure you do these clean pancakes justice and use a healthy topping! See below recipe for serving suggestions.
I used all organic. It isn't necessary but it is more than ideal!
Yields approx. 6 pancakes
- 3/4 cup brown rice flour
- 1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon pink salt
- 1 cup almond milk, unsweetened. (If not homemade, my favorite is Pure Almond Milk.)
- 1 tablespoon lakanto (pure monk fruit), xylitol, erythritol, or one Sweet Leaf stevia packet. I usually use stevia or mix half brown lakanto and half xylitol but they're all good sugar replacement options!
- 1 egg
- Extra-virgin coconut oil, to grease pan
* Optional: 1-2 teaspoons alcohol-free vanilla extract and/or cinnamon
Mix all dry ingredients together. Add milk and egg and whisk until smooth. Add a little bit of coconut oil to pan. Warm pan on medium-low to medium heat. Once the pan is warmed, pour batter, as usual! Once the edges are smooth and center is bubbly, flip!
My favorite topping options:
- I love the convenient bags of organic frozen berries at the grocery (mixed berries, blueberries, or strawberries). Simply cover the bottom of a pan with a bit of water, add frozen fruit, and sauté on medium-high heat, until most of the water is gone.
* Optional step: To thicken the juice, add 1 tablespoon of Bulletproof's Collagelatin
Collagelatin supports rapid repair of tissues and bones, helps support joint mobility and smooth, healthy skin! It becomes gelatinous in cooled liquids, mixes easily in hot liquids, and is great to use to thicken sauces. You can enjoy this warm, but if you let it chill, it will become a jam-like consistency.
- Peeled, chopped, baked green apples with cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg...and chopped walnuts are a nice addition.
- Fresh berries are great if you want to add them to your batter and bake them into the pancakes.
- Add walnuts, organic/ grass-fed butter, cinnamon & spice, and lakanto in a pan. Sauté on medium heat until mixture becomes thickened, for a "nut roll-esque" pancake.
- Grass-fed butter with cinnamon and a little more of the sweetener. Simple but delicious.
- Almond butter (unsweetened) with any/all of the following: chia seeds, shredded coconut, pure cacao powder, one of the 3 sugar alternatives listed in recipe.
- Sweetened and spiced pumpkin puree.
....I could go on and on for days!
Happy and healthy eating! - Holly
