I love having options and variety to our favorite foods. I am a little slow getting up Sunday morning and so we have a late breakfast. Sometimes my kids have already eaten a snack by the time I get these on the table, but I don’t have to worry about empty chairs at our dinner table when I fix these. There is nothing like the smell of hot steaming pancakes to get older teenagers to the table. The smell of cinnamon and vanilla are matched for a perfect mouthwatering bite!
I value our meals together, and see this tradition fading in many families. It is an important part of my family’s traditions to eat meals together. I hope you will try these and enjoy your family meal time together.

|Per Serving||% Daily Value|
- 1 cup amaranth flour
- 1/2 cup brown rice flour
- 1/2 cup tapioca starch
- 2 Teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 4 Large eggs
- 2 Teaspoons vanilla
- 2 Cups almond milk

This pancake recipe will be a bit more liquid than traditional wheat pancakes. The key to preventing them from falling apart as you flip will be a good spatula and not turning them too soon. Make sure griddle or heating surface is hot.
|Combine flours, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon in a mixing bowl.|
|In another mixing bowl add all wet ingredients. Whisk thoroughly to combine.|
|Add wet ingredient to dry, and add ground almonds. Mix all ingredients together with a hand whisk until mixture starts to thicken, or about 30 seconds.|
|Pour onto a hot and well-greased griddle or nonstick pan. This will be at least medium heat. For precise pancakes, use a 1/3 metal measuring cup for pouring on griddle. |
Flip pancakes after bubbles appear across the top.
