  • 3/4 cup almond meal
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • Maple syrup and chopped almonds to top (optional)

Step by Step:

  1. Preheat oven to 300°F.
  2. Stir together almond meal, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a large mixing bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together canola oil, eggs, vanilla, and applesauce. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, mixing just to combine.
  4. Coat a frying pan with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Once hot, spoon about 1/4 of the batter (more or less, depending on the size of pancake you prefer) into the frying pan. Cook for about 3 to 5 minutes, until the batter begins to bubble on top. Flip and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes until done. Transfer pancake to an ovenproof baking sheet or platter and place in oven to keep warm while you continue with remaining batter.
