1 1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/8 tsp. salt

1 tsp. olive oil (for the pan)

  • Blend the batter until thoroughly combined.

  • Allow batter to sit for 5-10 minutes

  • Set a nonstick skillet to medium to high heat, add olive oil.

  • Once hot add batter.  (Use a Tbs. to measure will make silver dollar pancakes)

  • Once edges start to dull, flip the pancake for about 1-2 minutes more, until done. 

  • (if the batter does not sit, pancakes will not rise like traditional pancakes, they will be crepe like)

Berry Sauce Ingredients

  • 1 cup of berries, any kind

  • 1/2 cup of water

  • Dash of Cinnamon

  • 1/8 tsp. vanilla extract

  • squeeze of 1/4 of a lemon or 1/2 tsp. lemon juice.

Berry Sauce Directions

  • Bring berries and water to a boil in a small saucepan over medium heat.

  • As the berry mixture comes to a simmer and the berries soften mash with the back of a fork.

  • Add cinnamon, vanilla extract and lemon.

  • Continue to simmer for a few additional minutes until mixture reduces.

  • Serve warm over pancakes.

To make without a food processor, combine all the wet ingredients in one bowl.  Combine the dry in another and mix well by hand.  Add the wet to the dry and mix. 

Spelt is a whole grain wheat flour.  To make this meal even lower carb, swap for almond flour or your favorite low-carb flour.


Xanthan Gum can be purchased at most supermarkets and on amazon.  You can also substitute the Xanthan Gum for 2 tsp. of coconut flour. 

Substitute maple extract for the vanilla for maple-flavored pancakes. 

Some topping ideas are fresh berries, shredded coconut, or chopped nuts.

For a smoother sauce, once cooled, puree in a blender.
