So, I've really been impressed with this book I got off Amazon for under a dollar! It's by Cathe Olson and she has a lot of really good all-natural recipes for babies and toddlers. It's not a gluten-free book but there are A LOT of recipes in there that can easily be. She also tells you how to make things dairy-free as well.
There's one recipe in particular that we love called Apple Oat Pancakes. In it she grates an entire apple into the batter! I loved the idea so much I tweaked it to create these next pancakes. Her recipe is really good but I feel it comes out a bit too gooey in the center and you have to let the pancakes sit and dry out a little bit in order to be normal. I like my pancakes hot off the grill so I created my own super moist, super healthy version of Apple Oat Pancakes. Enjoy!
Created by jalene (inspired by a recipe from Cathe Olsen)
- 1/2 cup gluten-free oat flour (You can make by blending 1/2 cup oats)
- 1/4 cup almond flour (You can make by blending 1/4 cup of raw almonds)
- 1/4 cup brown rice flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1 apple, core removed, finely grated (see note)
- 1/2 cup milk or milk alternative
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil (melted to liquid)
- 1/2 Tbsp 100% Pure Maple Syrup
- Preheat a griddle just under medium heat.
- In a blender or food processor, combine all the flours, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
- Add the apple, milk, egg, maple syrup, and oil and stir until just combined. (Batter will continue to thicken as it sits.)
- Pour onto griddle and brown on each side. (See note)
Note from jalene:
These pancakes burn a lot faster than normal pancakes so I cook them at a slightly lower heat for longer. You know when to flip them when the edges on the uncooked side start to look dry instead of wet.
