cherry almond pancakes

Waking up and enjoying a fresh stack of cherry almond pancakes is both a joyful and nutritious way to start the day. May it be the same for you!

Serves 4 (or two hungry people)
Prep time: 5 minutes
Total cook time: 15 minutes

Ingredients
2 cups almond flour
2.5 tbsp coconut oil (1/2 tbsp used in saute pan when cooking pancakes)
1/2 cup almond milk (try DIY almond milk)
4 eggs
1.5 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp sea salt
6 oz Morello cherries
1/2 cup pecans or walnuts
1/4 cup maple syrup

Instructions
Melt coconut oil in small saucepan (you can use this same pan for the cherry topping) . In a medium bowl combine eggs, almond milk, raw honey, and melted coconut oil. Add almond flour, sea salt, and cinnamon; mix well. Heat saute pan with 1/2 tbsp coconut oil and ladle 1/4 cup pancake batter into pan. When pancake edge brown and/or bubbles form in batter, use spatula to flip over pancake. They are done when cooked thoroughly and browned to your liking.

Between the few minutes of waiting for pancakes to cook, you’ll likely want to start on cherry topping. Add the Morello cherries, pecans or walnuts, and maple syrup to high-speed blender. After blended, heat in saucepan to be ready to serve once pancakes are done.

Consider adding some fresh fruit and more pecans or walnuts as a topping. Bon appetit!
