Jen’s Pear and Cardamom Grain-Free Pancakes

We all love pancakes, but I like to keep grains to a minimum. I’m in love with Birch Bender’s pancake mix. It’s just almond flour, cassava (a root vegetable) flour, and coconut flour. No sugar. Today I made pear and cardamom cakes with pear syrup. Nothing but fruit. No sugar added. Boom! My kiddo said these tasted like Christmas, but I think that’s because I make lovely Scandinavian cardamom pastries every year.

Jen’s Grain-Free Chicken and Dumplings

I love chicken and dumplings, but wanted to skip the flour. Birchbenders pancake mix is just cassava flour (root vegetable you’ll find in Mexican applications), coconut flour, and almond flour. I played around with that and it worked nicely. And between the mix and rotisserie chicken, it fits my lazy summertime kitchen mood perfectly.

Jen’s Grain-Free Apricot and Pistachio Pancakes

When we lived in New York, one of our favorite anniversary spots was Dawat, Madhur Jaffrey’s place on 58th. So good! I don’t know if it’s still on the menu, but she used to make a naan bread filled with apricots and pistachios that was to die for. That was the inspiration for my pancakes. Hope you love them!

Breakfast Guacamole? Oh yeah! Jen’s Pineapple Breakamole

I’ve always adored avocado. My mother-in-law told me that when she was a little girl in Cuba, they loved pairing it in a salad with pineapple. Game changer. In Gran Cocina Latina, she caramelizes the pineapple spears under the broiler. So good! That’s inspired my breakamole this morning. If you have a sweet tooth, this will make your day!
