High Protein Pancake Tower with Cherries

Fluffy Chickpea Flour Pancake 

This high protein pancake tower recipe is, vegan and gluten-free. But it’s also oil-free, nut-free and made with a high-protein alternative flour. Chickpea flour. Yup! Flour made from chickpeas, or garbanzo beans, which are not only naturally high in protein, but also give you a really incredibly fluffy texture

Basically, you’re eating chickpeas for breakfast, but in a fluffy pancake form, and fluffiness is something that’s hard to achieve when cooking gluten-free, so trust me on this one. It’s delicious!

High Protein Pancake with Cherries

Course Breakfast, Dessert, Snack

Ingredients
  

  • 200 g chickpea flour
  • 80 g cashew yoghurt
  • 80 g oat milk
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup and extra for topping
  • cherry compote for topping
  • 2 Tbsp plant oil for cooking

Instructions
 

  • In a large bowl whisk together flour, yoghurt, milk, starch, baking powder, apple cider, and maple syrup. Mix until smooth. If texture is too thick you can add additional non-dairy milk–it should be spoonable like a traditional pancake batter.
  • In a nonstick pan add oil on medium high heat and allow the oil to warm up before making your first pancake. It should sizzle when ready.
  • Form about 4 small pancake circles by adding 2 Tablespoons of batter into the pan on each corner and flip after bubbles begin to form and edges are firming up. Cook for another 1 minute or so on the other side until golden brown.

Apple Cake Recipe Gluten-Free

German Apple Cake Recipe 

Gluten-Free Apple Cake, deliciously moist and bursting with apple flavour

This apple cake recipe is easy to make in only 3 steps! It is a lovely cake that you can enjoy as a delicious Gluten-Free Dessert, warmed and topped with cinnamon powder. Because it is naturally light on flour, it converted amazingly well using my gluten-free flour blend and a little almond flour for flavor and structure. I think you will LOVE it. And yes, it smells so good when it’s baking in the oven.

Many people know this cake in Germany as “Versunkener Apfelkuchen” which means Sunken Cake. Fresh apples are cut in quarters, thinly sliced almost all the way, and then placed on top of the cake. This gives the apples a fanned look. For a little something extra, I brush the still-warm cake with maple syrup and sprinkle with cinnamon powder.

Exotic Red Danube Walnut & Maple Spiced Truffle

Exotic Red Danube Walnut & Maple Spiced Truffle

A lost piece of culture is given new life.

The red Danube Walnut is regarded as a tradition in Mostviertel. In comparison to other nuts, walnuts have much greater levels of omega-3 fatty acids, making them one of the finest plant sources of protein. Walnuts are a type of shell fruit and have a 50–70% fat and 10–20% protein composition. Even more so, the red Danube (also known as the rote Donaunuss) has a 10% higher fat content. They are regarded as the best form of brain fuel. The red Danube combines these healthy qualities, including a mild and delicate taste.

The tree appears to be a typical walnut tree. You have to break it open to see the differences. The nut kernel’s skin can be anything from red to purple in color. The flavors vary greatly as well. Red Danubes are not bitter and have a wonderful flavor and fragrance. There are currently very few remaining specimens. You’re going to love these four ingredient treats. These easy to make truffles are packed with protein, Omega-3s, and fiber!
