best PAN-akes ever!

gil & i call them PAN-akes.  i used to know a little girl in seattle that couldn’t pronounce pancakes properly and i guess it kind of stuck with me.  christine was her name, she is the sweetest and spunkiest little girl i know.  i haven’t seen her in a few years, but she is probably bouncing around in this world bringing cheer to everyone.

pancake batter

  • 1 1/2 cups blanched almond flour
  • ½ cup coconut milk the beverage (unsweetened)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoon grapeseed oil-for skillet
  • ¼ cup light agave nectar
  • 1 tablespoon organic vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder (can be substituted for any starch: corn, potato, rice, or tapioca)


  1. blend everything, except oil, in a mixer or food processor until smooth
  2. pour oil (grapeseed oil, virgin olive oil, or avocado oil) in a large skillet over medium heat
  3. When oil is hot, ladle pancake batter onto skillet
  4. Pancakes will bubble, when bubbles open, flip pancakes over and cook on other side
  5. When pancakes are done, remove from heat to a plate
  6. Ladle more batter onto skillet and make additional batches, adding more oil to grease skillet as needed
  7. Serve with syrup, yogurt or even apple sauce.  they’re pretty yummy on it’s on.

About emashita

Nearly two years ago, I was diagnosed with pre-diabetes. My life didn’t change much, but in April of 2011, I became very ill and was diagnosed with full on diabetes. It was a bit of a wake-up call for me and I quickly changed my eating habits. I scoured the internet for information about what to eat and what to avoid when it comes to a diabetic lifestyle. I cut out refined sugars, glutens, rice and pretty much all starches. After 90 days, I went in for blood work and was told that I was free and clear of diabetes. To live a healthy lifestyle inside and out is challenging and rewarding all at once. I started this blog to share my delicious (e is for Emilie and mashita means delicious in Korean) life with friends & family, and of course with new friends that stumble upon my site.
