When doing the true GAPS diet from start to end, the first baked good allowed/suggested is nut pancakes (in stage 3). Why I haven’t made them yet? Who knows 😛 Maybe because the GAPS book doesn’t actually give a recipe…just the ingredients (no amounts). But I did a little searching and found a few versions. I made a small batch yesterday to try. So easy!! And very good. I used some leftover roasted summer squash in mine. It wasn’t totally pureed and still had some seeds…and they still turned out great. Rebecca and I both liked them (Justin hasn’t tried them yet). They only take a few minutes to make. Great snack to have on hand when I need something more solid/filling. And they work well in place of bread/buns. I used one last night for an open face sandwich (with cashew avocado chicken salad). So good. I’m anxious to try them as hamburger buns. And just as regular pancakes too. I like how simple they are…and you don’t have to add sweetener. I’ll be making these often now. I’ll have to make a bigger batch and freeze them to have on hand.
