Spiced Pancakes with Apple Cinnamon Topping (Paleo, Grain Free)

Hello there! Don’t forget to share the recipe with friends on Facebook and Pinterest using the buttons beneath the recipe. Thanks and enjoy!

I told you all, in fact, I warned you! I am getting into the FEEEEEL of fall! And here I go posting fallish kinds of recipes before September 22. Tsk tsk! I am so not sorry though because when you make these super fluffy pancakes with something akin to apple pie filling (only healthy) on the top, I think you’ll forgive me!

Most Paleo pancakes I have had or made usually fall aparta because the nut flours can tend to be a bit crumbly. Not these, however, because using plenty of eggs has helped to bind together the recipe.

When I was a little girl, we would always go out to Cracker Barrel for breakfast for dinner. If you’ve never had breakfast for dinner, I am sorry for you. It’s a delight among delights to have your warm coffee, hot pancakes and melty butter when you are awake enough to appreciate them! I digress, however, because the point is that Cracker Barrel had these amazing fruit topped pancakes that I would order just about every time without fail. They had peach, apple, cherry, and I believe blueberry. Recently, I thought, there’s no reason why these delicious pancakes can’t be just as yummy, but we should lose the white flour and the corn syrup and the like. Not to mention my hankering to over use cinnamon before it’s time.

Here’s the cakes’ recipe

Spiced Pancakes

4 cups almond flour

1 tsp salt

1 tsp each cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves (dried)

2 tsp baking powder

1 cup avocado oil or melted coconut oil

3 tbsp coconut sugar

1 cup almond milk

8 eggs

1 tbsp vanilla extract

Begin a pan on medium-low sprayed with coconut non-stick spray or melted butter. Mix dry ingredients in one bowl and wet in another. Pour wet into dry and mix just until combined, don’t over mix. Scoop about 1/4 cup and spread slightly to flatten (the batter will be thick). After about 1-2 minutes, your pancakes should be ready to flip. Cook another minute or 2 on the other side and then remove to a plate. See Apple Topping below.

Apple Topping

4 tbsp butter

1 tsp lemon juice

2 large gala apples, peeled and sliced thinly

pinch salt

1 tsp cinnamon

2/3 cup maple syrup

3 tbsp honey

1 tsp vanilla extract

Bring all of the ingredients to a boil, then reduce to medium and simmer until the apples “flop” and are fully cooked. Use the maple syrup as the syrup for the pancakes and then top with delicious apples and devour!
