Almond Flour Zucchini Apple Pancakes

zucchini apple pancakes


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 mid-day, unlike pancakes made of grain flours. What a perfect way to start the weekend!

    • Hi Mely,

      “GAPS stands for Gut and Psychology Syndrome. It’s a term that was invented by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, who also designed the GAPS diet. Her theory is that many conditions that affect your brain are caused by a leaky gut.”

      I hope this helps.

  1. I have been on gaps diet for 13 months and have drastically got worse and all my blood work is coming back hideous. My thyroid and all hormones are out of whack and I feel very bad.

    I have heard that some people can get thyroid issues from the diet due to the lack of carbs. Any advice here?
