Even better than the last batch, we made pancakes again today! I only did a half batch this time (enough for 3 fun pancakes for Buggy and 3 small ones for me).

I learned that I need to learn to photograph food better. A LOT better. Today's lesson: turn flash off when taking pictures on the griddle. With flash you see every little droplet of oil used and it makes it look like a lot more. So if you'll forgive my horrid food photography skills, here's the pancakes and recipe.

This recipe contains none of the following allergens: peanuts, beans, wheat, beef, chicken, rice, corn, dairy, eggs, shellfish, sesame, ginger, lemons, soy, nightshades.

This recipe DOES contain the following allergens: oats (I use GF, you can use a different GF and/or allergy friendly flour), almonds, apples (can be subbed with bananas or any egg substitute)

Allergy Free Pancakes for Buggy

70g (just over 1/2 cup not packed) gluten free oat flour
35g (just over 1/4 cup not packed) almond flour
pinch of himalayan salt (or fine sea salt)
1/2 tsp allergy friendly baking powder (click here for how to use cream of tartar and baking soda)
1/2 tbs cane sugar
1/4 cup allergy friendly applesauce (this is an egg replacer, you can use 1/4 cup banana or any other safe egg replacer)
1/2 cup water (we were out of allergy friendly milk, you can sub any kind of milk in here -it will change taste though-)


1) Mix thoroughly flours, salt, baking powder, and sugar in a bowl.
2) Add applesauce (or other egg replacer) and water (or milk), mix until smooth.
3) Cook on griddle at 250F lightly greased with olive oil to prevent sticking.
4) Enjoy with coconut oil, fruit, and 100% maple syrup or any kind of toppings you love : )
5) (Optional, but appreciated) Comment below and let me (and everyone else) know how well these did or did not turn out for you!

Yield: 3 small pancakes for the mama, and 3 fun shaped pancakes for a toddler/baby/child (see pics below)

This is where we learned NOT to use flash when photographing food on the griddle. Oops! The one on your far right is my sad attempt at an Alaska shaped pancake ; )

Flipped 'em over, looking good!
