Welcome to my new mini-series – Real Food From Real Kitchens! This monthly series will take you into the kitchen of a real food enthusiast where you can learn to make the type of food she feeds her family. Real food! Real easy! Really loved! My first guest in this series is Erica from Edible Attitudes. Enjoy her Oven-Baked Pancakes recipe!
Let's be honest- cooking takes time and effort, especially if you want to eat well. I love to eat pancakes but I don't love the process of making them. It's the having to stand in the kitchen to flip the pancakes every two minutes that drives me crazy because of how time consuming it can become. Also, when I cook with coconut flour they seem to fall apart easier and I have make them smaller.
Baking the pancakes in the oven is the perfect solution! Spread the batter out on the parchment paper, place them in the oven, walk away and come back to pancakes that took less time out of your day. Just for that, they taste even better!
*These pancakes will be a little denser than regular pancakes though because they can't be as runny to keep a shape in the oven. Also, they are a tad darker because of the cinnamon and vanilla. If you want them to be a little sweeter try adding extra vanilla, honey, or cinnamon.
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- Measure and place all the wet ingredients into the blender.
- Blend the wet ingredients for several seconds until it is mixed.
- Measure and place all the dry ingredients into the blender.
- Blend the wet and dry ingredients together until it is mixed with no chunks.
- Keep the batter in the blender or pour it into a bowl.
- Let the batter sit for two minutes. Coconut flour is absorbent and will become thicker.
- Tear a piece of parchment paper large enough to cover the baking sheet and place it on top of it.
- Scoop the batter out with the spoon and place it on to the baking sheet. Use the back of the spoon to spread it out to about 1/4 inch in thickness. Make sure they are spaced out because they will expand.
- Repeat until all the batter is gone.
- Put the pancakes into the oven.
- Bake for 15 minutes.
- Eat them hot out of the oven!
