Fall Griddle Cakes (sans grains)

One of my favorite things about this time of year is being able to bake with pumpkin pie spice…. last weekend I got to visit with both my boyfriend (whom I rarely get to see as he lives in Idaho while I’m busy here in Portland studying/working and living) & my yellow lab; Grizzly.  It was almost like a vacation, we got to play at the coast and enjoy a very beautiful sunny day there with 40 or 50 members of my gym for a little challenge as well as relax & of course make up some of these delicious pumpkin griddle cakes…  enjoy.

Directions:  First, beat eggs together, then add the banana and mash together.  Mix the rest of the ingredients together in a bowl.  On a heated and properly oiled/buttered pan, pour mixture (better to do one pancake at a time) onto pan.  Cook on low to medium heat and flip carefully (these hold together a little looser than normal pancakes).  Top with butter, apple butter, fresh berries or whatever you fancy and ENJOY!

The recipe can be modified; reduce eggs to 2, and almond butter to 2 tbsp.  Reduce the baking soda & powder to 1/2 tsp.  Moderate the other ingredients and mix to a “pancake” consistency; i.e. add the coconut flour only until it’s the right consistency.

Happy Fall… stay tuned for more Primal, grain-free Thanksgiving ideas!

Till next time

Be well~

If you'd like more information about Erin and her practice please check out her website: www.myessentialhealing.com A note from Erin: Over the past few years I have changed my diet pretty dramatically and no longer eat grains & very little sugar due to chronic eczema; this blog is about how to cook and bake without wheat, gluten, rice or other grains and still get what you want out of the food you are eating. It is different, & it is tricky, but it is also possible and I've found some tricks to satisfy even the most carb loving baker without the extra sugar and gluten that some of us just can't eat; and I'm looking forward to sharing more recipes with you as I experiment along.
