Raise your hand if you’re tired of gummy AIP Pancakes! Me too. Trust me, I’ve been there, and I can’t stand it.
This recipe makes one large super fluffy, light and delicious baked pancake. I was inspired to create this recipe after watching Nadiya’s TIME TO EAT on Netflix. In the series, chef Nadiya Hussain shares an absolutely yummy looking Peanut Butter and Jelly Traybake. I knew we deserved an AIP version of this deliciousness, so I got to work.
This recipe comes together quickly and doesn’t involve you standing over the stove flipping pancakes. You simply mix the wet with the dry ingredients and spread the batter into a baking pan. Top with a berry compote and swirl it into the batter to mix throughout.
These baked pancakes go really well with a dollop of AIP compliant coconut yogurt and some maple syrup and are perfect to make ahead of time. Pop a slice in the toaster or in the oven to reheat for a quick morning breakfast.
Here’s what you’ll need for these AIP Baked Pancakes
Coconut Butter – In this recipe, coconut butter helps to bind the ingredients and create a soft crumb.
Palm Shortening – palm shortening offers this bread moisture and a great cake-like texture. You’ll want to ensure you’re using palm shortening rather than oil here for the optimal texture.
Unsweetened Applesauce – This is the main sweetener in this recipe and also acts as a binder for the pancake.
Coconut Milk – You’ll want to use full fat additive free coconut milk. The full fat is key to the texture!
Frozen Berries, Lemon Juice and Maple Syrup – I used frozen strawberries along with freshly squeezed lemon juice and maple syrup to make a strawberry swirl to mix into the pancake batter.
Can I make any substitutions?
I don’t recommend any substitutions in this recipe besides the frozen berry mixture on top. You can use strawberries, raspberries or even blueberries. No frozen berries? Try topping your pancake with some sliced bananas. Read above for why each of these ingredients is essential.
What do I serve these with?
I like to eat these with some whipped coconut cream and a little maple syrup alongside a protein like bacon.
How do I store these?
Store in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat before serving.
