Grain Free Almond Pancakes

The bigger and fluffier the pancakes, the better in my book. Or that’s how my book usually reads. Some days my usual cravings flip a switch, and I find myself as I do right now, craving almond pancakes… grain free almond pancakes to be more precise. That’s pretty unusual for me. I don’t want any regular flour in my flapjacks (buckwheat, I still adore you), instead, I want the slightly sweet, nuttiness of ground almonds. Do you ever have those days? Where you surprise yourself with a new craving; you yearn for a food or flavor you don’t often taste? I wonder why that happens. Maybe my body is craving novelty. Maybe my body is cravings healthy fats. Either way, since my body (or mind, depending on how you see it) is blasting the almond pancakes stereo, I’m going to listen to it. I mean, I did listen to it, clearly, given the photos. And I will listen to that song again when it comes on.

Makes 8 small pancakes (serves two hungry individuals)

1 cup blanched almond flour
2 pasture raised eggs
1/4-1/3 cup water or milk of choice (add based on desired pancake thickness)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp plus 1/8 tsp baking soda
Pinch of salt
Dash or two of cinnamon (optional)
For sweeter pancakes add 1-3 tsps coconut sugar or other granulated sugar
