You gotta make these apple pancakes. So yummy. Great for a brunch.
Serves: 8
  • 2 red apples (peeled & cored)
  • 5 dried figs (finely chopped)
  • 2-3 tbsp of organic coconut oil, or olive oil or butter
  • 1 cup of chickpea flour
  • 2 tbsp of tapioca starch
  • 1 tsp of sea salt
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon, plus some for sprinkling
  • 1 tsp of baking soda
  • 5 drops of liquid stevia (I like NuNaturals Alcohol Free Vanilla Liquid Stevia)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup of organic cow's milk
Make the pancake batter
  1. In a large mixing bowl, add the chickpea flour, tapioca starch, salt, baking soda and cinnamon. Whisk the dry ingredients together. Add the milk, liquid stevia and egg, and whisk the batter until smooth. Stir in the finely chopped dried figs.
How to make the pancakes
  1. Peel and core 2 red apples. Cut the apples into 1/2 inch slices with the cored hole in the center.
  2. Heat a skillet to medium/high heat. Place 1 tbsp of oil in the heated skillet. Turn the heat down to medium/low.
  3. Place 4 apple slices onto the oil. Sprinkle the top of each apple slice with cinnamon. Cook the apple slices until each side is caramelized (the apples will turn a nice, rich brown colour).
  4. Once the second side of the apple slices are caramelized, pour 2 heaping, large spoons of pancake batter on top of each apple slice. Allow the batter to flow over the apple.
  5. Flip the pancake as soon as the batter starts to bubble. Cook the pancakes until they are a medium brown colour.
  6. When you get ready to cook your second round of apple slices, don't forget to add more oil to the skillet, and sprinkle each slice with cinnamon.
  7. ** I like to eat these pancakes as is -- they are definitely sweet enough and totally satisfying accompanied by a nice cup of tea. Happy Sunday brunch, everyone! **
