Almond Pancakes

J made a request for pancakes the other day (weird) so I thought to myself…how can I jazz this up a bit. I took a look in my fridge and found the PERFECT secret ingredients:

these cakes were the cat’s meow….I’m not kidding you…they tasted like almond cookies!
Almond Pancakes
1 C almond milk
1 egg

1 T canola oil
1/2t Watkins vanilla
BEAT together
Stir in:
1/2 C almond meal
1/2 C whole wheat flour
1 t Stevia or sugar
1/2 t sea salt
1 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
bake away on your pancake griddle!


I always make a fruit sauce for pancakes so we can use less actual syrup. Boil down some frozen fruit (raspberries, strawberries, blueberries) and add a couple tablespoons of pure maple syrup. Now you have a flavorful fruit syrup with more health benefits!

mmmmm…almond cookies, I mean pancakes! J’s huge masterpiece of a breakfast….remember, he is training for an Ironman 🙂
Good luck to my Solon track girls at Districts this Friday!

look good, feel good, do good

  1. Sara- these look delicious! However, my one-year-old can't have nuts yet, so do you have any other alternative "pancake" ideas that you could point me towards? We LOVE pancakes in this house 🙂 Thanks!!!! Katie

  2. Katie,

    So of course there is the always yummy banana pancakes where you just add sliced bananas to the batter….so good topped with peanut butter. I also do apple slices (either in rings or diced). These are good topped with applesauce.
    There are all kinds of different flours/grains you can experiment with however, I always use at least half whole wheat flour. See here for some ideas:
    Buckwheat flour cakes are tasty!
    Check out my pancake label for a "protein pancake" made with oatmeal.
    Lastly, don't foget about those oh-so-good Mickey Mouse shaped cakes with chocolate chips 🙂

    Hope that helps! Sara
