I finally did it! I make gluten free pancakes. My husband is on the gluten free boat so I thought I would try my hand with something easy.
Being a lover of your traditional pancakes, I was a little skeptical on making (and enjoying) these. The consensus; they are good, not great, good. Reason being-I think, is that the almond flour I made in my food processor did not create a fine powder, I heard a Vitamix would make the consistency I am in search of but I just can’t justify spending that kind of money. The texture of the pancakes were gritty. Which was fine, it actually made them seem more savory, if that makes sense. After the whipped cream, fruit piled on top, and the maple syrup, however, in the end, it tasted more like dessert – YUM!
For the next round, I may use my coffee grinder to try and attain a more flour-like consistency. I’ll keep you posted.
Here is the link for homemade almond flour.
