Thanks so much for listening to my interview on the Among the Lilies podcast! It meant so much to me that I could share my story, so thank you for your support in listening!
I’m going to be honest. Now that we’re on the autumn-side of September, I am doing everything in my power to hold tight to every “last” piece of summer. The “last” barbecue. The “last” lazy Sunday picnic. The “last” episode of Bachelor in Paradise!
But one thing I’m really hanging on to with a white-knuckle grip: stone fruits.
Yep. The crown jewel of summer: peaches, plums, cherries, nectarines, apricots.
I can’t decide if I’m more sad to see them go, or my weekly mainstay of trashy reality TV.
So tonight’s recipe, they’re the star of the show.
Nectarine Pancakes with Blackberry Compote!
And they’re Grain/Dairy/Sugar/Gluten Free and Specific Carb Diet friendly with a Vegan Option!
And they make an incredible breakfast, brunch, or brinner…every last magnificent bite.
Here’s What You Need: (Serves 1-2)
1 nectarine, chopped
1/2 cup almond flour
2 egg whites, whipped (Vegan Option: 2 Flax/Chia eggs)
pinch of salt
1/8 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp honey (or 2 dropper-fills of pure liquid stevia)
1/2 – 3/4 cup blackberries, pureed
6 drops stevia
Whip the egg whites until they form medium peaks. Or, if Vegan, make your flax/chia egg. Fold in the almond flour, salt, cinnamon, and sweetener. Finally, fold in the chopped nectarine.
On a screamin’ hot pan or griddle, heat 1 tsp EVOO, and scoop 1/4 cup of the batter onto the pan. Cook for about 3-4 minutes per side, until golden brown around the edges. It should make roughly 5 pancakes.
Meanwhile, puree the blackberries with either a stick blender, food processor, or simply with a fork and elbow grease. 😉 If desired, run the puree through a mesh strainer to remove the blackberry seeds.
This meal was simply phenomenal! Oh my gosh, these pancakes hit the spot — no no — they KO’d the spot — obliterated the spot!
Needless to say, they were so good.
The texture was so light and airy from the whipped egg whites, yet still chewy and wonderfully moist!
And the flavor! Oooohhh the flavor. There’s nothing like a perfectly ripe nectarine. Nothing. Maybe winning a free vacation to Bali, but it would be a close second. The succulently sweet and juicy nectarine with the nutty almond flour was kissed by the sweet and crunchy blackberry compote!
But the best part was that the nectarines caramelized on the hot pan, really deepening their natural sweetness. A meal fit for a queen!
And isn’t there something so magical about breakfast for dinner? It’s luxurious – like having a dinner this delicious is in some way cheating. But it isn’t…it’s bliss. Healthy, yummy, nectarine-filled bliss 🙂
