Well, here is the second recipe I made using that same basic pulled pork from the previous post. I have my favorite spice rub for pulled pork (which will be in the book!), but I am so glad I made a ‘plain’ batch so I can ‘dress it up’ in different ways.

I used my favorite grain free/gluten free pancake recipe and simply added the pulled pork on top, after crisping it with a bit of maple syrup and coconut oil. Yes, that simple!

I posted (almost) the same pancake recipe a bit over a year ago, but since I made a few small changes this time, it is posted again below.

Almond, Ginger & Banana Pancakes with Pulled Pork


Pancakes with Pulled Pork

Yield: 2 servings


    Maple Pork
  • As much left over pulled pork from this basic recipe, depending on how much you would like to eat
  • ~1 tsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup, adjust depending on how much pulled pork you are using
  • Pancakes (makes approx 8 small-medium pancakes)
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp ground flax seeds
  • 1 tsp aluminum/gluten free baking powder
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp all spice
  • 1 tsp pure almond extract
  • coconut oil (for frying)
  • 1 banana, cut into small chunks


    Maple Pork
  1. Heat coconut oil over medium heat and once melted, add pork and maple syrup
  2. Cook over medium heat for 3-4 minutes, tossing occasionally until it is crisp, but not dry. You can vary cooking time to suit personal preference and level or crispiness
  3. Pancakes
  4. Mix flour, baking powder, flax and spices in a bowl
  5. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and mix in the yogurt, almond milk and almond extract
  6. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until combined
  7. Fold in banana chunks
  8. Heat coconut oil in a pan and cook on each side
  9. Serve with maple pulled pork on top


Cooking time is slightly longer than normal pancakes. Also, although I find them comfortable to flip, use caution, at least for the first ones you make!
