Almond Poppyseed Pancakes

I’ve noticed that every time I put almond extract in something, my husband and kids tell me how delicious it is. They don’t realize the common denominator is almond extract, but I do. These pancakes are no exception. They have a delicious flavor and make a fun, unique, delicous breakfast that is simple to make.

Soft, fluffy, and light even though they are whole-grain.

These are very low-fat, since there is no added fat and you can even use water instead of plant milk (which saves $$$). If you want extra fat/calories, use soy milk as the liquid and add 1/2 cup almond flour. I’ve tried these with

Servings: 12 pancakes
Author: Faithful Plateful
  • 2.5 cups whole wheat flour or spelt flour
  • 1.5 TBSP baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tablespoon poppyseeds or chia seeds
  • 2.5 cups water or plant milk
  • 1 tsp almond extract (or lemon extract for lemon)
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup or sugar (optional, I omit when serving with maple syrup on top)
  1. Preheat skillet while you make the batter.

    Whisk dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl.

  2. Add the applesauce, water or milk, and extract and stir until combined.

  3. If using chia seeds, make the pancakes quickly before they soak up a lot of moisture and make the batter thicker. If that happens though, just add a little water.

  4. Use 1/4 cup measure to pour batter onto skillet. Flip when bubbles appear.

  5. Serve with fruit and pure maple syrup.
