Hootenanny (aka German) Pancakes

When I was a kid, anytime my mom asked us what we wanted for dinner, the response was almost always German pancakes.  These are a paleo rendition of the ones my mom used to make.  They are not as "puffy" as gluten hootenanny pancakes are, but they taste divine!  I hope you love them as much as I do :)  I bought some duck eggs from my local co-op yesterday, so I subbed some of the chicken eggs with duck eggs, and there was not a difference in taste.  Duck eggs are packed with nutrients, so I highly suggest using them when possible!

Hootenanny Pancakes

1 Tbsp pastured butter
3 duck eggs
3 chicken eggs
1 cup almond milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup almond flour
1/2 cup arrowroot powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp freshly ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Place the butter in a glass 8x10 baking dish and put it in the oven to melt.  In a medium bowl, combine the eggs, milk and vanilla.  Beat with a handheld electric mixer.  Add the flour, arrowroot powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg and blend well.

Remove the pan with the butter in it (it should be bubbly by now, don't allow it to burn!) pour the batter into the pan and return it to the oven.  Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.  I served this with a drizzle of maple syrup, some Hempler's bacon and orange juice.Enjoy!

  1. I've been wondering lately about a paleo version of these! Donovan asked me to make them for dinner tonight. ;) Can't wait to try them!
