Apple, cinnamon and almond pancakes-gluten, sugar and dairy free.

These pancakes are a taste sensation for someone who has been on a very restricted diet. In my past life l used to love food that had a cinnamon and sugar flavour and would often purchase an apple and cinnamon muffin if eating out. In an attempt to move away from having only berry based pancakes l have created these delicious apple, cinnamon and almond pancakes, drizzled in organic maple syrup and extra flaked almonds. I blended the mix well so everything was combined, but this recipe would also be nice with some chunkier bits of apple and almond in it which can be achieved with a shorter blending time. I was able to make these pancakes a good size as the mix held together well. This mix makes quite a few and will keep for a day or so in the fridge.


1/2 cup quinoa flakes

1/2 cup coconut flour

1/2 cup buckwheat flour

2 eggs

1/4 cup flaked almonds

1 heaped teaspoon cinnamon powder

1 small green apple chopped up with the skin on

2 cups of filtered water.


Place all ingredients in the blender with the wet ingredients going in first. Blend until you are happy with the mix.

Place half a teaspoon of organic coconut oil in the non-stick fry pan and place a few spoonfuls of mix into the pan and flatten slightly with the spoon as the mix is quite thick. Cook until quite brown before turning to help the pancake hold together, When cooked top with your favourite ingredients. I used organic maple syrup and extra flaked almonds. The smell in the kitchen as they are cooking is wonderful!
