Chef’s Note: Like most restaurants, I make the batter for these full flavored lighter than air pancakes the night before. This allows the solids to fully absorb the liquids and that way I wake up and am ready to go. My choice is to make them in a 4 inch size, not too big not too small, but just right.


1/3 cup toasted walnuts or almonds OR ¼ cup almond flour

¼ cup whole wheat flour

¼ cup all purpose flour

1 ½ tsp. baking powder

½ tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. sugar substitute

¼ tsp. ground cinnamon

Pinch of salt

1 egg

2 TBSP. Sour cream

2/3 cup milk

½ tsp. pure vanilla extract

2 TBSP. butter (melted and cooled)


How to prepare the recipe:

Combine the toasted nuts and whole wheat flour in a food processor. Pulse until the nuts are pulverized and incorporated into the flour. Add remaining DRY ingredients and pulse to combine.

Combine all the wet ingredients in a separate bowl and beat with a whisk to combine. Slowly add the dry ingredients and whisk to combine. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to set up for 15-20 minutes (best overnight in the refrigerator)

Note: If you do use the refrigerator method you may have to add a few table spoons more milk to loosen the batter.

Heat griddle or frying pan to medium high. Spoon a tablespoon of batter for each pancake into the pan or on the griddle. Allow small bubbles to form before turning (about 1 minute) and flip and cook one minute more, Serve with fresh berry sauce below.
