Coconut Flour Apple Pancakes

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas holiday!  It seems like forever since I’ve posted a new recipe – time flies during the holidays.  🙂

Breakfast is one of my favorite meals – I love making it for dinner.  Our favorite pancake recipe is the simple coconut flour pancakes (found here) but sometimes it’s fun to spice things up a bit.  I tried this recipe back when we had apples coming out of our ears during harvest time.  They’re yummy with maple syrup or honey drizzled over them.

Coconut Flour Apple Pancakes

3 eggs

3 T of butter, melted

1 tsp of cinnamon

3 T of coconut flour

1 medium apple, cored and shredded

Combine all ingredients except the shredded apple in a bowl, until very well mixed and all the coconut flour clumps are removed.  Fold in the apple bits and combine well.

Cook batter in a preheated, greased skillet over medium heat until both sides are nice and golden brown.  Enjoy!

Cinnamon Bread

It’s been awhile since my last recipe – our family came down with the stomach virus going around.  Not the nice, little 24 hour bug, but the 6-10 day bug that knocks you off your feet until you are promising never to eat again.  So it’s taken me awhile to want to think about food and post a new recipe.

But this recipe, Cinnamon Bread, is a good one!  I would have totally added raisins to it to make it even more yummy, but my husband won’t eat raisins.  But you can add them and tell me how amazing it was.  In the future, I plan to save a loaf of this and make french toast out of it.  I’ll bet that will be wonderful.

Cinnamon Bread

1/2 cup of butter, melted

1/4 cup of honey

5 eggs

1/4 tsp of salt

1/4 tsp of baking soda

1 tsp of vanilla

1 tsp of cinnamon

1/3 cup of coconut flour

1/4 cup of almond flour

If using, 1/2 cup of raisins

Preheat the oven to 325.

Melt the butter and then add honey and stir until combined.  In another medium bowl, combine eggs & vanilla.  Add the butter/honey and blend well.

Mix together the coconut flour, almond flour, salt, cinnamon, and baking soda.  Add to your wet mixture and blend well (I used a hand mixer).

Fold in your raisins, if using.

Grease 2 small loaf pans and split the batter between the 2 pans.  Bake the loaves for about 25-30 minutes, or until they are nice and golden brown on top.  Remove from oven, cool in the pans for about 10 minutes, and the take the bread out and cool on a wire rack until completely cooled off.

Enjoy with lots of butter!!
