Blueberry Pecan Kefir Pancakes

Kefir cheese makes yummy, fluffy pancakes. Although heat kills the probiotics, I added a blueberry kefir compote topping to add the probiotics back in. Kefir helps pancakes and doughs to rise much like a sourdough starter, and also makes for a nutrient-dense food that will sustain you all morning long.
Course: Breakfast
Servings: 6 pancakes

Ingredients

Instructions

Pancakes

  • In a small bowl, beat eggs together with a fork.
  • In a separate bowl, add the dry ingredients – oat flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and baking powder. Mix together.
  • Then add kefir cheese and mix together until well combined.
  • Pour in the eggs and mix thoroughly. Batter will be thick.
  • Set a skillet on medium-high heat. Melt 1/2 tablespoon of coconut oil in the pan.
  • When the skillet is hot, add 2 heaping tablespoons of the batter to the skillet for each pancake. Add a few pecans or blueberries on top of batter while the pancake cooks. (I like to add blueberries to one pancake and on the next pancake add pecans.)
  • Cook for about 1 – 2 minutes per side.
  • Repeat with coconut oil and extra batter.
  • Top pancakes with blueberry kefir compote.
