Almond Flour Pancakes

Thursday, January 2, 2014

Do you know those mysterious people who just don't care about food? That's my son; he is happy to eat on the run and alternate between shepherd's pie, pizza, and sometimes a cheeseburger. So when he request pancakes for breakfast, I try to oblige. I also try to make his favorite pancakes as healthy as possible without breaking out the food processor at 7am.

To keep it mom-friendly, I simply sub in or sub out ingredients depending what I have on hand. The kids never seem to notice. They are just happy to help crack an egg and measure out the flour. If I sense a fight brewing, I assign the job of sprinkling sugar and cinnamon. I guess a spoonful of sugar does do the trick.

Make the pancakes according to the directions on the pancake mix. Substitute half of the pancake mix with almond flour and the cow's milk with almond milk for extra protein. Replace the oil with just about the whole squeeze pouch of apple sauce. Add cinnamon and sugar to taste.

* I use Bobs Red Mill Almond Meal/Flour and Pancake Mix
