One of my kid’s favorite breakfasts is German Pancakes. I love that they are eating tons of eggs and they love that they get to eat maple syrup. I’ve been going without grains for a while now in an effort to help with some stomach issues, it’s been going great so far, and really is much easier that I thought it would be. However, whenever I make German pancakes I am a bit sad I’m not eating them with the kids.
I’m not much of a sugar girl either. I can generally say no and I realize that I feel tons better when I don’t eat it. But every now and then you just crave and nice fluffy pancake drizzled with real maple syrup.
I started searching Pinterest of course, what else would I do?
I came across a few recipes and after some experimenting came up with this recipe which I think is pretty darn good!
Whether you’re trying to cut carbs, or are gluten free or paleo here’s a great breakfast for you! I wouldn’t eat them every morning but with the holidays coming up I think it’s important to indulge a bit so you don’t feel deprived all season!
Note: You could also make them dairy free by subbing out the butter for coconut oil or another dairy free fat of your liking and subbing homemade coconut milk for the cows milk. I have not tried this yet, but I think it would work pretty good.
- 1/2 stick butter
- 8 eggs
- 1 c. milk (raw is best)
- 1/4 c. arrowroot starch (this makes a great grain free thickener for many things)
- 1/4 c. coconut flour
- 1/4 t. salt
- 1 t. vanilla
- Place 1/2 stick butter in glass baking dish (11 x 13) and place in oven to preheat to 400.
- While butter is melting in the oven mix the rest of the ingredients. Let them stand for 10 minutes to let the coconut flour soak up the liquid. The batter will thicken just a bit.
- Pour batter into hot pan and bake for 15-20 minutes at 400. They will get fluffy and golden.
- Drizzle with real maple syrup.
Are you on any special type of diet? I would love to hear so that I can continue to create recipes that will work for you!
Have a wonderful healthy day,
