Fun Recipe with Important Thyroid Nutrition Foods
This recipe is a little playful as it uses the unusual combination of savory thyme and zucchini with sweet apple and honey. I hope you find them as complementary and joyful as I do. I dedicate this recipe to all my clients who are staying off grains and/ or are following the Thyroid-GAPS diet (important thyroid nutrition foods) and who thought they would never have another pancake. There is life without grains! Try this and you will love it. These pancakes will also keep your blood levels even till md-day, unlike pancakes made of grain flours. What a perfect way to start the weekend!Prep time: 10min Cooking time: 10 min Serves: about 6 pancakes
- 1 small zucchini, grated
- 1 small apple, grated
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder (skip if you are doing GAPS)
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 2-3 tablespoons almond butter (you can use any nut butter, really)
- 3 sprigs of fresh thyme, chopped
- 3 eggs
- 1 tablespoon honey (raw, unheated) or maple syrup (use honey if you are doing GAPS)

One Response to Thyroid Nutrition Foods: Almond Flour Zucchini Apple Pancakes
These were lovely, thank you for the recipe! I did not have fresh thyme, so I used a pinch of dried thyme. I loved the flavor both plain and with homemade jam (made with honey instead of sugar). My children did not care for them plain, but were willing to eat them with a bit of raw honey. I would definitely say that the thyme adds a more adult friendly flavor though. Thank you for the recipe!
