I don’t know about anyone else, but when I started this paleo journey, almost a year ago, I went crazy trying new recipes and buying new ingredients. My pantry had a complete makeover within about two weeks.
I had been having a tough time with breakfast-on-the-go but I had found a recipe for a blueberry-hazelnut breakfast crumble that I was dying to try.
I searched high and low for hazelnut flour. When I finally found it I was shocked at the price! The little bag I found was about $12.
At first I couldn’t bring myself to pay that much and decided to try almond flour instead.
So next up, this cheapskate tried cashew flour.
Still no good.
I believe I also tried coconut flour, and I still wasn’t happy.
I finally broke down and bought the stinkin hazelnut flour.
SO WORTH IT!
That blueberry-hazelnut crumble was so delicious!
So fast forward to 10 months later. I only made that cumble once with that hazelnut flour! Crazy, right?
Every time I opened the pantry that bag of flour stared at me.
I was feeling guilty, so I looked online for the recipe and of course, I could not find it anywhere.
So, now I have this expensive hazelnut flour just sitting in my pantry…..
I decided to Google search “paleo hazelnut flour recipes” and I found some great recipes.
I decided I wanted to try banana hazelnut pancakes. They sounded like they would be yummy and easy.
For Mother’s Day my sweet boys made them for me, and boy were they awesome!
The best part about the recipe is that all of the ingredients go into the blender and then you can pour the batter straight from the blender onto the pan, so there’s hardly any mess!
I made these pancakes again this past weekend and they did not disappoint!
I highly recommend this recipe (if you can stomach the price of the hazelnut flour! Lol!)
