Oh, man. You guys! I’m showing some restraint in bestowing…
I hate flipping pancakes. Flipping pancakes is flipping annoying.
But my fellah adores pancakes. Our weekend tradition has always involved making a batch and blissing out on pancakey goodness. When I started a strict paleo diet after Christmas last year, we still kept up with our weekly pancake fix (although this was put on hold while I implemented the AIP). We were just sure to make them paleo-compliant, and away we went.
Just to reiterate, flipping pancakes is not one of my strong points. So I tarried away at this recipe and excitedly came with an oven-baked pancake that is nut-free.
As a side note, while I recently followed the AIP strictly for two months, I have since reintroduced eggs and nuts/seeds in moderation (the other non-AIP foods are still out for me). Overall, though, I find eggs a whole lot easier to digest than nuts and seeds.*
So what is especially great about this recipe is that it’s not only nut-free, it’s also labour-intensive-free. This is a fix-it-and-forget-about-it pancake that has transformed the awkwardness of me standing over the stove top invariably unsuccessfully flipping (verb) flipping (adjective) pancakes. Even if you’re not flipping-ly challenged like me, you may very well be looking for a little less fuss when making your own pancake breakfast, so go ahead and give this recipe a try!
*Nuts are one of the more common allergenic foods. For more understanding on the why of avoiding nuts and seeds, read Sarah Ballantyne’s (The Paleo Mom) article here.
