Hello Westchester Food Finders and welcome Fall!
If you and your families are like ours, you have probably visited your favorite orchard and have brought home an entire 20lb bag of apples that you now don’t know what to do with. Sure you will cut some up, and put slices in your kids’ lunch. You may bring a few to work to share, but 20lbs is still lots of apples.
Time for quick and simple pancakes. They are made with 4 total ingredients and are easy to make and clean up is a breeze!
I have been asked by some readers if I could post some special diet recipes, and this one sure is special. Of course you should always consult with your nutritionist or dietitian if you have possible health concerns with food, but these pancakes are gluten free, lactose free, no sugar added, low fat, and may actually work for those on a paleo diet as well. They are higher in protein than traditional pancakes as they are made with more eggs and no wheat flour.
Enough healthy dietary stuff, these pancakes are delicious and most of all, are easily prepared in a blender.
Start with your ingredients:
4 Tablespoons of Almond flour
1 Apple cored, peeled and quartered
1 tablespoon of cinnamon
Put all of your ingredients in a blender and blend until your batter is smooth. You will want to make these pancakes smaller; on the “silver dollar” size side. Without all of the flour in traditional pancakes, these pancakes will be a little more fragile when flipping. Cook on a griddle or a pan with low heat. Make sure to coat your griddle with your favorite non-stick spray, as we did not add any oil to our batter. Once you see the outside of your pancakes changing color, flip your pancakes so they are golden brown on both sides.
You may plate simply as I have here, with some powdered sugar and fresh fruit or you can dress up the dish with some finely chopped apples, mixed with some sugar and whipped cream.
