Hearty Maple Pecan Pancakes

I have NEVER in my life seen a healthy pancake this fluffy.

Seriously guys, each of these pancakes is like 1/2″ thick. It’s insane. And majorly delicious.

Not to mention, there’s no added sugar in these pancakes and no gluten. They’re made with natural, whole ingredients, and will keep you full and satisfied for hours.

Plus, they’re such a crowd pleaser!

Think about it: fluffy, cake-y pancakes, full of hints of maple syrup and sprinkled with pecans. Imagine waking up to a warm stack of them, as the snow falls lightly from the sky, coating the world in a thick white blanket. You sit by the fire, enjoying the company of your family as you settle in for a nice, low-key breakfast of hearty pancakes.

I don’t know about you, but that’s my perfect vision of a winter morning!

With the temperature dropping ever-so-quickly, this snowy morning may be closer than you think… And this pancake recipe may be exactly what you need to stay warm and joyful while the cold bites at your ears and nips at your nose.

It’s practically fluffy, winter perfection. ❤

Hearty Maple Pecan Pancakes

  • 1 c gluten free flour of choice
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp all spice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 c milk of choice (I used unsweetened almond milk)
  • 2 tbs maple syrup
  • 1 tbs coconut oil
  • 2 tbs pecans

Add all dry ingredients to a bowl and stir until combined. Pour in all wet ingredients and slowly stir it all together. Fold in 2 tbs pecans. Grease a griddle or pan and spoon the mixture on in circles (with about a 3″ diameter). Cook for two to three minutes on medium-high, or until the pancakes have risen and are set on the edges. Flip and cook for a remaining one to two minutes. Plate and top with additional pecans, if desired, and maple syrup. Enjoy!
