Summary: Serve these Mini Loaf Pancakes to your Valentine on Valentine’s Day, or anytime actually! These pancakes use almond flour, SCD lactose free yogurt or coconut milk, eggs and honey. When in a pinch for yogurt, I’ve even used thawed frozen SCD banana yogurt, and it worked great! What I most like about this recipe is that you can bake these in bulk, even doubling the recipe. They freeze well and make scrambling for breakfast a no brainer. These pancakes are also great travel and on the run food.
Special ingredients I use:
Actually, there is nothing “odd” ingredient wise in this recipe!
It is SCD/GAPS/UMass IBD-AID legal, full of wholesome whole food ingredients such as this SCD lactose-free yogurt (Update: coconut milk can be substituted) and this Honeyville blanched almond flour, which you are already familiar with if you follow the healing diet tenets for PALEO, SCD, GAPS, or Mediterranean.
Regarding coconut milk; it is difficult to find such without added gums and other additives. Trader Joe’s does carry an organic coconut milk that seems SCD legal; the ingredients are: organic coconut milk (filtered water, organic coconut extracts 48%) but they have refused to give out information on the product or provide a letter indicating no other hidden ingredients; be cautious for reactions if you use it. Wellbee’s sales Organic Natural Value coconut milk which has a letter on file at the BTVC yahoo health blog thus it is SCD legal. Last, coconut milk is easy to make. I use this recipe but I use a whip stick instead of a blender and just use the back of a spoon to push on the pulp to further drain the milk through the fine sieve.
It is PALEO using coconut milk and some camps permit fermented dairy.
Unfortunately this recipe is not FODMAP friendly due to excess nuts (in the form of nut flour) unless it is eaten in very small portions. How small? Monash University, home and author of low FODMAP, lists less than 10 almonds, and less than 10 Brazil nuts, as low FODMAP. The revised Monash booklet copied here added less than 10 hazelnuts for low FODMAP.
The recipe is only AIP friendly if nuts and eggs have been reintroduced with known tolerance levels.
Hoping you enjoy these as much as we do.
You’ll find these pancakes often in my fridge, not just served on Valentine’s day!
