Recipe: Easy Peasy Einkorn Flour Pancakes

Everyone loves pancakes on a Sunday morning or actually, any day of the week they’re great. Most people reach for their boxed version of pre-made pancake mix. Although this is very convenient and easy, it is full of nasty and unnecessary ingredients. I know it can be a little daunting trying to recreate a homemade version of a boxed food but I promise you homemade pancakes are EASY PEASY to make and they taste great!

Seriously– no joke. It takes maybe about 8 minutes to prepare at the max. My cousin showed me this recipe a few months ago and I have to say, it is my go-to recipe when my family and I are feeling pancakes.

I do have to warn, these pancakes are not the normal heavy, fluffy pancakes comparable to Bisquick that you may be used to. You can actually compare these to the consistency of a crepe. Which is even better because it makes them extremely versatile. If you’re feeling in the mood for crepes, you can whip up a batch of these, add some fresh fruit and homemade whipped cream in the middle, roll it up and enjoy some homemade crepes. Since blueberries aren’t in season yet I don’t have any to roll up so the past few times I’ve made these I’ve just put a nice hunk of butter on top with a little bit of real maple syrup.

Yum.

There is not much sugar in these so they aren’t very sweet (especially if you use rapadura sugar) but I still don’t need much syrup to make these delicious. To me they’re actually quite good plain (without syrup or butter) but what’s pancakes without butter and real maple syrup?!

I’ve tried many variations of flour with this recipe and they have yielded different results. I’ve used sprouted whole wheat flour but it turns the pancakes a little thicker than normal. I would suggest using the sprouted flour if you want a thicker, fluffier pancake. I’ve also used regular unbleached all purpose flour which keeps them a thin consistency but I just recently used einkorn flour and they were my favorite! Einkorn has a slight nutty flavor which really complimented all the other ingredients.

So next time your hubby or kids ask for pancakes try this recipe out. I promise they won’t be disappointed!

Easy, Peasy Einkorn Pancakes
Ingredients:

  • 1 cup einkorn flour (find it here)
  • 2 1/2 TBL rapadura sugar (find it here)
  • 3/4 tsp aluminum free baking powder (find it here)
  • pinch unrefined sea salt (find it here)
  • 1 TBL butter
  • 1 pastured egg
  • 1 Cup milk (preferably raw or grass-fed)
  • 1 TBL raw apple cider vinegar (find it here)
  • OR 1 cup buttermilk
  • butter or coconut oil to fry pancakes in

Directions:

  1. If you do not have buttermilk on hand, mix 1 cup milk with 1 TBL apple cider vinegar and let sit for 5 minutes. *It will get a little chunky on top– that’s okay, that’s what we’re looking for. If you have buttermilk, ignore this step and continue to the next one
  2. Whisk egg in a bowl
  3. Melt butter in a frying pan and then pour it into the bowl with egg. Add milk and mix together
  4. Mix dry ingredients in a second bowl
  5. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix well
  6. Pour pancake batter into frying pan (with butter or coconut oil) and fry on one side until nice, bubbly and golden brown. Flip then repeat until all batter is used up

    I absolutely love pancakes. I have been making my own for years. Yes, I did use unhealthy mixes. And, I have used some organic and “all natural” mixes. I long decided that I love my own. AND, I can make a different type of pancake every time. And, I do.

    Thanks for your post! I will try these!!

      Let us know if they come out OK. We tried them and it made us think the recipe hadn’t been tested. Very tough yet gooey pancakes. Usually the melted butter gets added last instead of combining with the liquid ingredients so maybe that is what is wrong with the recipe.

        Hmm, I’m sorry it didn’t turn out for you. We make these all the time and they always come out delicious.

    Where do you get your einkorn flour? Do you grind it yourself? I want to try these pancakes but don’t have a source for the flour.

      Hi Jenny, I’ve added a link up above in the ingredients list to where you find einkorn flour. I do not grind it myself because I don’t have a grinder…would love to one of these days!

    In step three, you mention melting butter and adding it to the egg, but in the ingredients, you don’t list how much butter. Could you please update the post with the amount of butter? Thanks!
