I’m not going to lie to you guys, I totally made these pancakes for dinner. I was feeling a little lazy on a Sunday evening and really didn’t want put a lot of effort into dinner. Who doesn’t love breakfast for dinner every once in a while anyway? These einkorn pancakes were fluffy, delicious, and even better than regular pancakes in my opinion. With a side of bacon and some fruit, it was a tasty and easy dinner that everyone loved.
Dairy and Refined Sugar Free
I modified this recipe from Jovial Foods in order to make it dairy free and to cut out the refined sugar. You can see the original recipe on Jovial’s website. My toddler has a dairy intolerance so it is easier to just make dairy free meals for the whole family instead of making separate meals for him. The almond milk and coconut oil were used in place of cow’s milk and butter and I substituted raw honey for the white sugar. I typically use unrefined coconut oil in my baking and cooking in place of butter or vegetable oils because it contains healthy fats and has tons of awesome health benefits. This is the brand I like best.
What is Einkorn Flour?
We talk about einkorn flour a lot on our blog (Becca and I might be a little obsessed!) but here is a quick recap in case you aren’t familiar with it.
Einkorn is an ancient form of wheat that has never been hybridized or modified by humans in any way. Many people who suffer from gluten intolerance find that they are able to digest einkorn, without the same negative side effects they would normally have from eating white or wheat flour. It contains higher levels of minerals and protein than typical wheat flours.
We are partial to Jovial’s einkorn flour. It can be purchased directly from their website or on Amazon. Read The Beginner’s Guide to Using Einkorn Flour if you are new to einkorn flour and don’t know where to start. This pancake recipe is great for einkorn newbies because it is very simple and easy to follow.
