homemade pancakes


I’d tried homemade pancake recipes before, but they tasted so awful that I continued to purchase the healthiest boxed pancake mix that I could find….until I found this amazing recipe. It tastes so delicious and you will recognize EVERY ingredient, a total boon! Hope your family enjoys these pancakes as much as mine does!

Here’s the Recipe:

This is the perfect amount for our family of 3. Double or triple the recipe for more. You can always freeze them or put them in the fridge and re-heat them throughout the week if there are leftovers.

3/4 cup all purpose flour     
1 tablespoon baking powder
Pinch of salt

1 medium egg   
1 tablespoon oil  – (Healthy Tip: you can substitute prune puree for the oil if you like. Still tastes amazing! Just blend up a bit of prunes and water in a bullet blender until you have the right amount. Should be the consistency of applesauce. You can do this in most baked goods)
1 tablespoon sugar    
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons orange juice
1 cup unsweetened almond milk

  • In a bowl, add the flour, baking powder, and salt. Whisk well and keep aside.
  • Beat the egg with oil, vanilla, orange juice, milk, and sugar.
  • Add the flour to the previous mixture and stir gently. Over mixing this batter will make them tough. Don’t mind the lumps if there are any. (It’s a leaner, runnier batter, but once cooked, puffs up).

Delicious ideas for additions:

  1. Orange zest (1 tsp) and mixed berries – blueberries, boysenberries, raspberries (frozen works fine if you don’t have fresh : )
  2. Diced walnuts, shredded coconut, and chopped bananas. I put some in the mix, then add some more on top for a garnish.
  3. Diced fuji apples with cinnamon in the mix. We like to coat with peanut or almond butter, then put thinly sliced apples on top, too.

**This recipe works great, as is for waffles, too!

    Hi Kelli!
    Have you ever substituted a GF flour or alternate flour for the All Purpose?

      Hi Stacy – I used to play with rice flour and coconut flour, but find them challenging to work with. Which GF flour do you prefer? Have you found a good ratio that’s easy to substitute in recipes?
