Maple Pecan Pancakes

Pancakes are comfort food for me, and ever since going gluten free, I've had a difficult time finding a pancake to be excited about. Pecans are something to be excited about though and it was the pecans that inspired me to come up with this recipe. I've been stewing over it in my mind for a while now and finally decided it was time to try it out.
Maple Pecan Pancakes:
1/2 C chopped pecans
1/2 C oat flour
1/2 C brown rice flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp soda
1.2 tsp salt
3/4 C plain Greek yogurt
1 large egg
2 TB maple syrup
1 TB water
1/2 tsp maple flavor

Pulse the chopped pecans in a food processor until they take on a very course meal-like consistency, but before they become a paste. In a large bowl, mix the pecan meal with the oat and rice flours, baking powder, soda, and salt.

In a smaller bowl whip together the yogurt, egg, and syrup. add to the dry ingredients and blend well. Finally, stir the water and maple flavor into the batter. Cook using a frying pan, or griddle the way you normally cook pancakes. I found that cooking on a lower temperature than I was used to, really helped. Does anyone else have problems making pancakes? The first few pancakes I make always turn out badly and it's been this way my whole life! It doesn't matter what kind of pancakes either. If anyone knows a good tip, I'd love to hear it!

Serve these pancakes hot with more maple syrup on top. I also ate some with Wild Orange Honey Butter. It was amazingly scrumptious!
These pancakes are really good! They hold together well and have a nice fluffy texture. The flavor of the pecans is pronounced, and the maple compliments it perfectly! I ate a few warm, right out of the griddle and they were great that way too. I think these might hold up well to freezing and I plan to make some more to try that way. I like having quick snack that I can pop into the toaster and I think the texture of these pancakes will work for that. They aren't too crumbly like some gluten free pancakes are. Hooray for great pancakes!

  1. Yum! Little M here was just asking for pancakes this week. We love pancakes here too and I can't wait to try these!
    I don't really have a tip for the first few pancakes other than I use a non-stick skillet and make sure my pan is hot and ready before attempting to cook any pancakes. Most of the time that works for me.

    1. Yes, please do try them and then let me know how you like them! Thanks for the pancake cooking tips. The waiting might be my problem. I'm notoriously impatient when it comes to my food! Haha! My pan isn't non stick, but sticking doesn't seem to be the problem, so I think I'm good there. I'll try waiting. :)

    2. I was anxious to make these and had only brown rice farina. I figured I could blend it into flour maybe, so I tried it out. I don't recommend it ;) It gave them a bit of a crunchy texture, haha! That aside, I LOVED the flavor and next time I won't improvise and will use actual flour!
      I admit I am really only good at cooking pancakes on non-stick or cast iron.
