Apple Cider Pancakes WHAT?


I’ve always been a pancake person. I much prefer pancakes to waffles…there’s just something about pancakes with butter and maple syrup…yum.

Last week I was inspired when Bill and Hayley from the Primal Palate made pumpkin spiced pancakes, so I decided to create some pancakes of my own!

Apple Cider Pancakes (serves 1)


1 egg

1/4 cup almond meal

generous sprinkle of cinnamon

less generous sprinkle of nutmeg, ground cloves and ground ginger

2 Tbsp Coconut milk from a can

 a splash of apple cider

The directions are simple: throw everything (gently) into a bowl, whisk and plop onto a skillet greased with coconut oil.

Then, top with pastured butter and maple syrup. The maple syrup is actually optional–the cider adds a really subtle sweetness–you almost don’t need anything else!

I ate mine with a side of eggs fried in coconut oil. Perfect. I also put everything on my plate in the style of Pee Wee Herman…aka, I tried to make a breakfast face. Anyway…

How do you feel about pancakes? Are you a pancake person or a waffle person?

    […] 29. Apple Cider Pancakes These pancakes only use a little bit of apple cider, but the distinctive taste of cider really rings through. You won’t have any concern over grains or wheat because it’s using almond flour as the base, and it gives these pancakes a nice thickness to them without taking away too much from their fluffiness. The end result is a pancake that you can cook up any time you happen to have some apple cider handy, and they’re even so good you might want to seek it out just to make these. […]
