I’m not sure if this is how it is for everyone but I’m absolutely starving when I wake
up. During the week, I silence my grumbling stomach with eggs, either hardboiled
or fried. On the weekend though, I mix things up because by the time Saturday rolls
around, I can’t look at another egg.
Pancakes are my weakness. Since I’ve adapted a healthier approach to my diet
though, I’ve had a hard time finding a recipe that doesn’t make them as dense as a
brick. Enter cassava flour, which is ground up yucca root. It can be swapped in for
whole-wheat flour with pretty outstanding results.
These Grain Free Pancakes taste exactly like buttermilk pancakes – they are light,
fluffy and melt in your mouth. I can promise you that nobody will know that they are
gluten, dairy and nut free. Due to the fact that I used avocado oil, you don’t get an
overwhelming taste of coconut either. They’re basically perfection if I do say so
To keep things on the lighter side, you can serve these Grain-Free Pancakes with
fresh berries and turkey bacon on the side. I hope you give this recipe a try! Enjoy.
These Grain-Free Pancakes are dairy, nut, and gluten free but you wouldn’t even
know it! They are fluffy, light, buttery and don’t weight you down.
