Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

Cinnamon-Pancakes

  • tightly-packed 1 cup dates
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup milk of choice

Blend everything together in a small food processor (scraping the sides down occasionally) for a long time untilcompletely smooth. Transfer to a small plastic bag, making sure to get every last bit out. (Make sure all air is out of bag, then close with a rubber band.) Cut just the very edge off one corner of the bag. Now set in the fridge and make your pancakes:

  • 1 cup gluten-free flour or spelt or all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp uncut stevia or 3 tbsp pure maple syrup or agave
  • just under level 1 cup milk of choice (increase to 1 cup plus 2 tbsp if using stevia version)
  • 2 tbsp coconut or vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • Only if using the gluten-free flour, add 1/4 tsp xanthan gum

Cinnamon Roll Pancakes: Combine all dry ingredients in a small bowl, and stir very well. Whisk together all liquid ingredients in a separate bowl. Pour the dry into wet, and stir to form a batter. (If the batter is too thin, just add a little more flour until you get a pancake-esque batter.) Lightly grease a medium skillet, and place over medium heat. When the pan is hot (see tip below), turn to low and drop one small ladelful into the pan. Immediately take your filling bag and squeeze in a swirl pattern over the pancake. Repeat with other pancakes. Flip pancakes with a spatula when the edges begin to look dry. Allow to cook one minute more, then remove from heat. You can now pipe on any frosting you want. Makes 20-24 pancakes (the size of the ones in the photos). You’ll have a lot of filling left over, but it’s best to make the whole amount for smooth blending. If you have a giant food processor, you might even want to make a double batch.
