These pancakes will fuel you up in the morning much better than any cereal ever could. They are very easy to make and comprise of Maca Powder, Linseed (Flax), Ginger, Cinnamon Powder and ground Almonds. This is not to mention all the normal baking ingredients of gluten-free flour and baking powder. To top it all off there are the optional extras of chocolate chips, mashed Banana, raisins or any topping you might prefer.


  • 75g gluten-free Plain Flour or a mix of Teff flour (a flour from the Teff grain) and Plain Gluten-free Flour.
  • 45g Ground 45g Ground Almonds
  • 1 x tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 x Egg or 1 x tbsp milled Flax Seeds (Linseeds) blended with 3 x tbsp water
  • 200ml Almond Milk (Approx.), or, other dairy free or dairy milk! You will use less if not using Flax (Linseeds)
  • Optional
  • ½ x tsp Ginger
  • 2 x tsp – 1 x tbsp Milled Flax Seeds (Linseeds)
  • 1 x tbsp Maca Powder
  • Handful Dark Chocolate Chips, check ingredients
  • Handful of fresh Berries, a mashed Banana or a handful of Raisins
  • ½ x tsp Cinnamon Powder

  • Blender (optional)
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Large wooden spoon
  • Frying pan
  • Spatula
  • Kitchen scales

  1.  Mix together the dry ingredients in a bowl. If you decide to use Maca Powder for its beneficial properties then adding the Ginger or Cinnamon will contribute sweetness that will complement the Maca taste. The flax seeds will provide extra nutrients too.
  2.  Add the Egg and Milk to the dry ingredients and hand whisk until you have a smooth mixture, rather like thick double cream. The amount of Milk you need will depend on whether you use Maca, Flax or not and what Flour you use. Go for a smooth yet thick consistency.
  3.  Set a large frying pan on the heat, and add a little oil.
  4.  Once the oil and pan is hot place tablespoonful’s of mixture into the pan. It is possible to get 5 or 6 in a pan. Leave for approx. 1 minute until bubbles start rising to the surface. Carefully turn over and cook until golden on both sides. The first batch will take longer than the rest unless the pan is really hot before starting.

Please note: If you are using Maca you will need to add the cinnamon or ginger too to compliment and enhance the taste!


Serve plain or with honey or (dairy-free) chocolate spread. Alternatively, if you like your pancakes sweet, add a tablespoon or 2 of sugar to the mix or the chocolate chips.
