These no sugar added apple pie paleo pancakes are amazing! High in fibre, coconut flour helps slow the glucose intake from the natural sugar in apples, and cinnamon, a great addition to any meal (especially for diabetics) can also help regulate blood glucose.
Yields 16 3-inch pancakes
3/4 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
3/4 Lemon, juiced and divided
1 medium Banana, mashed
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/2 cup Coconut Flour
1/2 cup Arrowroot Powder + 1 tbls
1/2 tbls Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
1 tbls Coconut Oil
2 Apples (cored and diced)
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, almond milk, mashed banana, 1/3 of the lemon juice and vanilla until combined.
In a separate bowl, combine the coconut flour, arrowroot flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add to the wet mixture about 1/4 cup at a time, whisking thoroughly.
Grease a large skillet with coconut oil and place over medium heat. Once hot, pour pancakes in the skillet, about 3-inches wide.
Once small holes begin to appear in the surface of the pancake, sprinkle a few apple chunks onto it and flip over. Cook each side approximately 3-4 minutes. Repeat until batter is finished.
Heat coconut oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add remaining apple chunks, cinnamon, the remaining 2/3 of the lemon juice. Stir until combined
Mix the remaining 1 tablespoon of arrowroot powder with 2 tablespoons cold water, add to diced apples and turn down to low-medium heat. Let simmer and stir occasionally for 3-5 minutes or until apple chunks are soft.
Top apple pancakes with chunky apple cinnamon sauce.
