CRICKET FLOUR PANCAKES AND WAFFLES
This batter can be used for pancakes or waffles. They are good by themselves, very substantial for a meal, and also excellent with any traditional toppings. I am partial to having them with maple syrup and butter, since I grew up with buckwheat pancakes with maple syrup; and these are quite similar. If you can’t have chia seeds, try substituting in coconut flour for the seeds, or another grain-free flour substitute you can have.
- 6 whole eggs grass-fed
- 1/2 cup chia seeds
- 1/4 cup cricket flour
- 2T. butter grass-fed, or ghee, coconut oil, fat of choice
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. sea salt
- 1/8 tsp. NuNaturals stevia powder Pure NuStevia Extract Powder, or stevia to taste if you’re using a different concentration
Place all the ingredients in a blender.
Blend on medium speed for 30 seconds, or until you have a mostly smooth batter.
Allow the batter to set up and thicken for 10-15 minutes. The chia seeds will perform this action.
Heat a griddle or cast iron skillet with 1 T. preferred fat and fry up those pancakes, adding more fat as needed. They will cook as traditional pancakes do.
