Lemon Poppyseed Pancakes


Lemon Poppyseed Pancake Recipe

Treat mom to a sweet and sour treat this Mother’s Day with these delicious Lemon Poppyseed Pancakes.  Skip the store-bought pancake mix and make your own pancake batter out of wholesome ingredients like almond flour, coconut milk, eggs, honey, baking soda and flavor it will zesty lemon zest and poppy seeds.  These gluten free and dairy free pancakes are amazing!  If you don’t have coconut milk on hand, you can always use almond milk (or regular milk if you prefer).  We made these lemon poppyseed pancakes this morning for my daughter’s 13th birthday sleepover gang and they devoured them like they had never eaten pancakes before.

I made the syrup out of honey, lemon juice and lemon zest and it was perfectly sweet with just the right amount of tang to compliment the pancakes.  Sadly, the left over syrup  got tossed because the girls dipped strawberries in it after they finished their pancakes, and I just couldn’t bring myself to save it after 7 girls dipped their hands and licked their fingers over and over again.    Luckily, I can make again, or give my husband the recipe so he can make some for me on Mother’s Day.   I even showed my 9 year old how to zest a lemon ;-).  See how sneaky I am?  Thanks to our friends at Safeway for the delicious recipe and photos!

Be sure to take advantage of the hot sale on Bob’s Red Mill products at Safeway this week to get your almond flour if you don’t have any on hand.  Also take advantage of  the BOGO Free sale on blueberries and strawberries.  I topped the pancakes with both blueberries and strawberries this morning and that added just the perfect amount of sweetness and an extra serving of fruit, which we all need!

  • 2 O Organics® eggs
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1 Tbs O Organics honey
  • 1 pinch kosher salt
  • 1 cup almond flour plus 2 Tbs
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
