Fluffy and Crispy Gluten Free Pancakes

All my other gluten free pancake recipes have gone out the window since discovering  this one! This recipe is from Julia Mueller’s cookbook, Paleo Power Bowls. She also has a blog with TONS of super tasty super clean recipes. Her mix of almond flour & tapioca flour (or arrowroot flour) yields a taste and texture that is so similar to regular pancakes, you’d be hard pressed to find someone who can taste the difference.

The only substitution I made was replacing poppy seeds with chia seeds, simply because I typically don’t have poppy seeds in my pantry, but I do have lots of chia.

And since this recipe is so low carb (1.9g net carbs per pancake) I like to add real maple syrup (12g net carbs per Tablespoon) and blueberries.

Nutritional Benefits

Pasture Raised Eggs are an excellent source of high-quality protein, raise HDL cholesterol (the "good" cholesterol) and lower triglycerides, contain choline (an essential B vitamin), and contain antioxidants that target eye health.
Almonds are one of the highest sources of dietary Vitamin E. They are also great sources of manganeses, magnesium, and are loaded with antioxidants!
Arrowroot is a root vegetable that contains a good amount of resistant starch, which like fiber, your body cannot digest. This also means it helps you stay full longer. Arrowroot also is considered to be a prebiotic food (aka it feeds the probiotics in your gut) which help your immune system to stay regulated and healthy.
Chia Seeds are loaded with antioxidants and super high in fiber!

I can’t get enough of this gluten free pancake recipe! I know you’ll love it too! I have only dressed them up so far with blueberries and chocolate chips, but I can’t wait to make them with bananas & cinnamon and pumpkin!
