|Well, it is Sunday and HEAB says time for pancakes! So, I have fallen in love with pancakes. First (food) love oatmeal...second (food) love pancakes. (I had to go back and clarify that since the illustrator is clearly my first love!) I normally incorporate the two (oatmeal and pancakes, not the illustrator and pancakes), but lately I have been playing around with some other high protein flours. I got some almond flour recently and thought it would be fun to play around with some pancakes.
Now, when I make pancakes they are all types of thickness, thinness, cakey, creamy...you get the idea. These were very cakey. Like cake/muffin texture. I loved the combination of the buckwheat and almond flour. Buckwheat gives them a cakier texture (and helps hold it together) while the almond flour gives these a nice chew. The flavor combination was so good. I decided to use some of my Crofters Europe microwaved with a firm, sweet Fuji apple as the topper and wow, these hit the spot!!! I loved the sauce the apples and Crofter's made. I really liked the pink color! Very Spring like in color! See the chunks of fruit from the spread? Impressive!
Almond Buckwheat Pancakes
(makes 1 big pancake)
1/4 cup blanched almond flour
2 TBSP buckwheat flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 TBSP almond milk, water or whatever liquid you would like
10 drops NuNaturals vanilla stevia
Mix everything together and cook in a nonstick griddle.
The apple topping was 1 small Fuji apple diced and microwaved for 2 minutes. Then I added 1 TBSP Crofter's Europe and microwaved for one more minute. This mixture would be so good on ice cream too! YUM!
