Nutty pancakes

Nutty pancakes

by Peachy Palate on June 7, 2013

Coconut and peanut nutty pancakes to be precise. In other words, the best damn pancakes EVER! The combination of the peanut flour, coconut flour and straight up buckwheat was perfect!

It created the most awesome texture, incredible flavour and paired wonderfully with the tropical fruit trio of kiwi, pineapple and passionfruit. A few generous dollops of peanut butter and they were good to go.

Pancakes used to be a weekend breakfast treat but seen as I work weekends mid week mornings are all about the pancake feasts.

Peanut flour is firmly back in morning rotation. It’s such a great high protein alternative, gluten free, with the amazing flavour of roasted peanuts, I personally can’t get enough of the stuff. It’s also really good value especially when you compare it to the price of protein powder! For someone who spends an absolute fortune on food on a weekly basis any savings I can make without compromising on flavour/texture and altogether delicious and nutritious-ness are welcomed with open arms! Smile

These pancakes are light, fluffy, yet quite filling at the same time. Definite winners worthy of rotation which doesn’t happen often around here.

It was a bank holiday (long weekend) here in Ireland the weekend so it feels like it should be only Thursday! When I was working a full time 9-5 (or in my case 7-4) I would wish the week away, yearning for the weekend and a stress releasing shopping spree. It dawned on me this week how much my life, my mind, body and whole sense of being has changed since having left full time work.

I’m truly a happy person these days. I wake up happy, go to bed happy and smile a hell of a lot more (and they’re real smiles, not just pretence). The sun shone through the whole weekend, a weekend which I worked through and loved every minute of it….if you love your job you’ll never work a day in your life…I didn’t believe it until I began to experience just a taster of it.

I still like a bit of structure, morning workouts and good breakfasts, ideally pancakes Smile set me up on the right foot for the day. I can handle anything that comes my way.

What sets you up for the day ahead?

I love peanut flour! Although I have never managed to make pancakes with it on its own as they crumble- I normally use spelt flour but I like to see you have used buckwheat flour- when I next have some cupboard space I am going to try it I think.

Ye you need to balance it out with something else! :)

have you tried flavoring things with peanut flour? i’ve been looking into pb2 and some people suggest using peanut flour instead… wondering your thoughts on that :) mmm pancakes!


Peachy Palate June 8, 2013 at 9:27 am

I’d rather use peanut flour for baking and pancake making and save the PB2 for toppings and spreading as it’s a bit more expensive…


kristle July 4, 2013 at 3:56 pm

plus pb2 has sugar added to make it sweeter, i would think the peanut flour would be kinda bland compared to it?


Peachy Palate July 4, 2013 at 7:31 pm

Not at all, it’s got a rich peanut flavour :)

I made these this morning for a special Saturday morning breakfast and they are delicious! I love the flavor and the texture is as close to a “regular” pancake that I’ve made since going GF. Thank you for all your great recipes. I’ve made and liked a lot of them !


Peachy Palate June 8, 2013 at 7:44 pm

Oh great! I’m glad you liked them!!! :)

Hi! :)

Thank you for such an amazing and inspiring food-blog! I tried making these pancakes today, but it didn’t work when I tried to cook them. I used a non stick skillet on medium heat, and they stuck to the pan, burning the bottom without the filling turning more solid. Ended up with a burnt and sticky mess, looking at your pictured and wondering what on earth I might have done wrong? 😛 I used cocoa-oil in the skillet, because I naturally assumed you needed to have something in the skillet, but I did the opposite on the 2nd try with the same result. Do you have any advice?

Bonus: even raw they taste delicious, so once I do it right; I bet it will be amazing 😀

I have a really good Tefal non stick pan that doesn’t even require oil. They shouldn’t stick especially if you’re using a bit of oil. Maybe not the most helpful but it’s worst investing in a new pan maybe?!? Have you made pancakes in the one you have before?


Eirin Gjedrem June 14, 2013 at 6:29 pm

Yes, many times 😐 I will ask at a kitchen-accessories store, and perhaps they can help me :) Thank you for your response! 😀


Peachy Palate June 14, 2013 at 8:33 pm

Sorry I don’t have any better ideas as to why they didn’t work…?! Let me know if you manage to make them!


kristle July 4, 2013 at 3:58 pm

this has happened to me in the past, i think that happens when i use too much banana actually.


kristle July 4, 2013 at 4:00 pm

i woke up in the mood for a new pancake this morning so i googled peachy palate pancake, and luckily this was the first one to come up. delish! i put jam on top so it was like a pb&j :) you never fail me, michele! thanks for a lovely start to my independence day.
