Servings 2


  • 1 Cast Iron Skillet (or skillet of choice)


Apple-Oat Pancakes

  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground cardamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 dash sea salt
  • 1/2 cup oat milk (unsweetened)
  • 1 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 apple (chopped)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Mixed Berry Coulis

  • 2 cups organic mixed berries (if using frozen berries thaw and drain)
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (or more to adjust to a desired level of sweetness)
  • 1 splash lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


Apple-Oat Pancakes

  • In a bowl, combine oat flour, baking powder, cinnamon, cardamom and sea salt. Mix well. Add milk, vanilla, apple cider vinegar, and 1/2 cup water and whisk until well combined. Add the chopped apple and mix well. Let the batter stand for 3-5 minutes to thicken.
  • Heat a skillet over medium-high heat for a few minutes until hot, then reduce to low and let the skillet rest for a few minutes more. For each pancake, ladle about 1/4 cup batter into the skillet. Cook until small bubbles start to form on the outer edge and then the center of each, this takes a few minutes.  Flip the pancake then cook for a few minutes on the other side.
  • Serve pancakes with a warm mixed berry coulis and coconut kefir, if desired. Enjoy!

Mixed Berry Coulis

  • Place the mixed berries, lemon juice, vanilla extract, and maple syrup in a high-powered blender and blend until smooth.
  • Store berry coulis in a sealed glass jar and refrigerate for up to four days.


Special Note: For the coconut kefir, you can find this at a local health food store or make it on your own using milk kefir cultures. More to come on how to make this homemade version! This rich kefir is a great way to help replenish the beneficial bacteria in your gut.
