Christmas Morning Apple Pie Pancakes

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″]

Every year, on Christmas morning,  we can be sure to have a pretty package waiting outside our bedroom doors. Inside is a pair of pajamas that we promptly get changed into to start cooking a morning feast! 

This year was no exception. Alongside my  partner in shine, we delivered a delicious menu…and these gluten free, dairy free pancakes were the stars of the show. 

So go ahead, put on your pj’s and give these a try!

  1. 3 eggs
  2. 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  3. 3 TBSP maple syrup (divided)
  4. 3/4 Lemon (juiced and divided)
  5. 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  6. 1/2 cup coconut flour
  7. 8 TBSP arrowroot flour
  8. 1/2 tbsp baking powder
  9. 1/4 tsp baking soda
  10. 1/4 tsp sea salt
  11. 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  12. 1 tbsp coconut oil
  13. 1 apple (cored and diced)
  14. 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  15. 1/8 cup almond flour
  1. Directions
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, almond milk, 1/3 of the maple syrup, 1/3 of the lemon juice and vanilla until combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the coconut flour and arrowroot flour. Add to the wet mixture about 1/4 cup at a time, whisking thoroughly.
  4. Mix in baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  5. Grease a large skillet with olive oil and place over medium heat. Once hot, pour pancakes in the skillet, about 3-inches wide.
  6. Once small holes begin to appear in the surface of the pancake, sprinkle a few apple chunks onto it and flip over. Cook each side approximately 3-4 minutes. Repeat until batter is finished.
  7. Heat coconut oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add remaining apple chunks, cinnamon, the remaining 2/3 of the lemon juice and the remaining 2/3 of the maple syrup. Stir until combined.
  8. Add almond flour and turn down to low-medium heat. Let simmer and stir occasionally for 3-5 minutes or until apple chunks are soft.
  9. Top apple pancakes with chunky apple cinnamon sauce and enjoy!
