Spiced Orange & Cornmeal Flourless Pancakes

These flourless pancakes are a fun way to brighten up a dark winter morning. Play with the fruit toppings, try orange slices, pomegranate, pears, seeds, etc.

The key with these is to slow cook them on low heat on a non-stick pan or griddle.

    Hi! I’m wondering about the cornmeal? How do you see it as not the same as flour?
