Baked Pancakes with Almond Butter and Berries

I made pancakes last week for our regular Cooking with Joy + Vienna Instagram LIVE, and we enjoyed them for a few days by just popping them in the toaster. It just makes mornings and afternoon snacking so quick and easy. Then I had this brilliant idea (well not technically my idea - more on that in a bit) to make pancake batter and bake it.

Meet my newest pancake recipe - the perfect pancake texture but over an inch thick, totally gluten-free and absolutely delicious!

You can even pop it in the toaster (yes, it fits) the next day if you don't eat it all in one go. It's pretty satisfying so 1-2 small pieces keeps my belly quiet for hours.

These baked pancakes are not totally new to the blog. Did you try out these Baked Apple Pancakes I posted back in the winter? They were such a hit in my family. But the inspo for this latest pancake bake came from none other than Nadiya Hussain, the host of a new Netflix cooking show "Nadiya's TIME TO EAT" and I'm just a wee bit obsessed. 

I came across her completely by fluke. We were watching something on Netflix that was kinda intense so I needed to watch something funny like John Oliver or lighthearted which is why we ended up finding Nadiya. Omg, I LOVE her energy and her zest for life and food. She made baked pancakes with ingredients I don't use like white flour, heavy cream etc but since I've made pancakes hundreds of times before I knew just what I needed to do. So I got in the kitchen the next morning and whipped up my own version.

What makes them so special is that you swirl almond butter and berries right into the batter and then you bake it.

There is no melting of coconut oil, flipping and standing over your stove for 20-30 minutes. You pop this in the oven and you have the most amazing pancake bake!! 

These Baked Pancakes with Almond Butter and Berries are...

  • Gluten-free (you can buy GF oats if that's important for you) and dairy-free
  • Rich in protein and packed with gut-friendly fibre
  • Kid-friendly 
  • Freeze well and leftovers are easy - simply pop in the toaster
  • Going to become a favourite in your home!

Here's a video of my recipe and the recipe card is below.

Ingredients
  • 1 cup coconut flour
  • 1 cup oat flour*
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 6 whole organic eggs, whisked
  • 1 tsp vanilla or almond extract
  • 2-1/2 cups non-dairy milk. I used oat milk.
  • 1 cup fresh or thawed frozen berries
  • 1/2-1 cup almond butter**
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F (180C). Grease or line a 13"x9" pan with parchment paper. In a large mixing bowl, combine flours, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon.
  2. In a smaller bowl, combine eggs, extract and milk.
  3. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until fully combined. Use a whisk to mix out any lumps.
  4. Pour batter into baking dish. Using a large spoon, pour big drops of almond butter into 6 areas of the batter. Do the same with the berries. Then use the spoon to swirl around the mixture.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes on convection setting or 35-40 minutes regular oven setting. It's done when a knife inserted comes out clean.
  6. Top with yogurt, maple syrup and more fresh berries.

Notes

Serves 6

*DIY oat flour. Measure out any amount of oat flakes, raw oats or quick oats. I usually do 3-4 cups at a time. Blitz in a high power blender or food processor until finely ground.

**I've provided a range because it just depends how rich you want it to be.

Once it's baked, it looks like a work of art!

The only thing you'll need to decide is what to top them with. I love a good schlop of yogurt and fresh or frozen berries. I popped some frozen wild blueberries into a small pot on the stove and warmed them up on low. Let's not forget the importance of real maple syrup - heaven sent!

I'm super excited for you guys to try this recipe!

Have you tried them without oat flour for a paleo version? What would you suggest as a grain free substitute for oat flour?

Hi joy, this recipe looks fab. Do you think it would work with an egg substitute, maybe a flax egg?!?

Is it possible to omit the almond butter? I’d like to try this but my girls have allergies and don’t love sun butter either. Thanks!

Looks amazing. Our son is allergic to nuts - would Wow Butter work? Toasted soy based.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I have a ton of coconut flour and this was a great recipe to use a bunch ...and it's absolutely fantastic!!! Super easy, super pretty, and super delicious!!! This large batch was perfect to share with my family. I doubled the fruit (strawberries, cherries and blueberries) and found it sweet enough without syrup. Plan to try a banana peanut butter version next week!

Can I make this batter the night before and then bake it in the morning? Or would this make the berries soggy?
