Recipe: Apple Raisin Mini Pancakes and more…MMM {Must-Make-Mondays}

It’s been some time since I posted anything for my Must-Make-Monday (MMM) series. I think it’s great that we can connect through so many social media outlets to share recipes but my collections are getting a bit out of hand. That’s right, my collection is now plural. It’s gone beyond the Must-Make-Page here on my blog site, I also have a Must-Make Board on Pinterest.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a collector of recipes but I’ve never managed to find enough time to try all the recipes I collect. Thus, my Must-Make-Monday (MMM) series was born. The idea was to force myself to choose at least one recipe from my Must-Make-List each week. I would cook it and post the results here on my blog. Solid idea, or so I thought, but with recipe collections that are growing at a rate faster than the speed of light, I could use a month of Mondays and still not get to half of the recipes in my collections.

I want to resume my Must-Make-Monday (MMM) series because it does help me to follow through and make good use of my recipe collections. With each new recipe I try, I will include a link to the original recipe and when possible, I’ll post a picture of my results.

Once I’ve completed a recipe from my Must-Make-Monday (MMM) series, I will cross it off my list and post it to my Made-This (TAB) on this site.

To start things off this week, here are a few recipes I’ve come across recently…these are recipes I would love to try. They are to become the newest additions on my Must-Make-List

Now, to give you an idea about what’s been cooking in the Fox Kitchen lately…

Sorry, I didn’t get any pictures of the No Bake Chocolate Coconut Macaroons by Red and Honey but they were good. Satisfying without being too overly sweet.
Quick and easy to throw together. I think they tasted even better on the second day, after the ingredients had melded together.

The Seasoned Roasted Potatoes pictured above, have become our newest potato obsession. Yet another Pinterest find, I think the original instructions were to bake them on the grill but we’ve cooked them in the microwave first and then finished the job in our oven but come grill season, these babies will be heading outdoors. YUM!

These little GAPS Apple and Raisin Pancakes by Easy Natural Food are really good! Naturally Gluten-Free, Grain-Free and Sugar-Free. I love that there are no added sweeteners in these pancakes. The sweetness comes from raisins and apples. I was quite happy to serve these to my little grandson, along with some of my homemade yogurt. I think the original pancake recipe by Debbie is perfect but for some reason, I just can’t help playing with my food :) Below, you will find a bit of an explanation along with my version of these little pancakes.

Apple Raisin Mini Pancakes
Recipe type: Breakfast
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Summary: I followed Debbie’s recipe the first couple of times I made these little gems but even tho her recipe was perfect, I couldn’t help myself, I changed things up anyway. I’m experimenting with psyllium in my baked goods lately, so this combination of ingredients works for me at this time.

*** Always refer to packaging labels for the most up to date allergy information
  • 1 extra-large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 Tbsp almond flour
  • 1/4 Cup plain unsweetened yogurt (I used my SCD 24 hr homemade)
  • 1/4 Cup raisins, or other dried fruit (I used blueberries)
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 apple (I used Gala)
  • 1 Tbsp psyllium husks
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly grease or line a small cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, blend egg, almond flour, yogurt, raisins, cinnamon and salt.
  3. Peel, core and grate the apple. Add the apple and psyllium husk to the pancake batter. Stir until incorporated.
  4. Drop by tablespoonful on prepared cookie sheet.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes, remove from oven, flip the pancakes over. Return to the oven for another 6-8 minutes or until lightly browned.
  6. Serve warm with yogurt for dipping.
~ These little pancakes are great with dried fruits, other than raisins. I made some with blueberries and think I will try dried cranberries next time.

  1. Hi Laureen, thanks for featuring my Apple and Raisin Pancakes! I was so excited to see that you’d tried them, and that you liked them :) I think your modifications sound really tasty, and I love the idea of using blueberries or cranberries instead of raisins for a bit of variety. Also thanks for the recipe roundup, there are some great ideas here!

      Hi Debbie, I’m glad you’re happy with the post. Question for you…have you ever tried making a vegan version of your pancakes? I did and it failed miserably. I don’t follow a vegan diet but some of my readers do, so I like to offer a vegan option when I can
