This is my German pancake recipe re-vamped to make a delicious & easy to grab meal/treat for my kid starting out on the SCD diet. This uses nut butter instead of almond flour or coconut flour, since the flours can sometimes be harder for people in an IBD flare. And, it actually has a better texture than when we tried it with the almond flour & coconut flour. With the cashew butter it is pretty much the same texture & taste as the original German pancake recipe...delicious! The cashew butter was the first nut we re-introduced to my kid’s diet, & it went well in very small amounts.

  • 4
    Pour over the apples in the pan, then bake for 20-25 minutes at 425° F, until top is evenly & nicely browned. Cut into 8 slices & enjoy warm. Refrigerate leftovers. Best reheated, but not bad even cold. Easy & quick to grab meal or snack. Can serve with SCD yogurt made with whole milk, half & half or cream, nut butters, any fruit that is tolerated (blueberries are particularly good), SCD homemade lemon curd (great when eating with blueberries), butter, honey, SCD legal apple or pear sauce, or similar toppings if desired, to up the calories. It is tasty all by itself, though.
