I had a couple of ripe peaches that I wanted to use up. It was a weekend morning and I really wanted to make some peach pancakes. So I whipped these up. They ended up with only a hint of peach but they were so delicious I didn’t want to try to change the recipe and I even made a second batch of them to freeze for pancakes later in the week. The girls didn’t want peach pancakes but they loved these and ate them right up! If I wanted a really strong peach flavor I may even top these with some fresh peaches but instead I topped them with a blueberry sauce for one batch and raspberry sauce for the other. I am not sure why, maybe texture, slight sweetnes, the smell, something about these pancakes had me thinking of funnel cakes. So you can guess what just got added to my To Do List!
2 ¼ c flour, used gluten free Cup 4 Cup
2 Tbsp coconut palm sugar, sugar, or other sweetener of chocie
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
¼c coconut oil (used mine solid form)
2 ripe peaches, halved, pit removed
1 ¾c unsweetened vanilla coconut milk, or non dairy milk of choice (used So Delicious Unsweetened Vanilla Coconut Milk)
½ tsp vanilla
In a bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a Vitamix or high speed blender puree peaches, vanilla, and milk. I kept the skins on the peaches, the Vitmax grinds them right up, you can peel the peaches if you are worried about your blender not grinding them up and having pieces. Add coconut oil and blend. Slowly add in flour mixture until you have added it all and batter is smooth.
Heat an ungreased, nonstick griddle or skillet over medium heat. Pour batter onto the griddle or pan in desired pancake size. Cook until the edges start to look dry and air bubbles started stick in the center. Flip and cook the other side until golden brown. Serve pancakes with blueberry sauce, raspberry sauce, maple syrup, or desired toppings. Enjoy!
For blueberry sauce I used a Vitamix to blend 1 cup blueberries, 2 teaspoon pure maple syrup, and 1 teaspoon water. For the raspberry sauce I blended together 1 cup of fresh raspberries and 1 packet of Stevia In The Raw.
