Ancient Grain Pancakes with Spiced Apple Compote 🍎

Compote Recipe & Instructions:

Add the following to a stove top pan: 

  • 1 roughly chopped up medium-large apple (granny smith is my fave)  • 1.5 cup brewed Rasa OG (you can also use 1.5 cup hot water + 1.5tbsp Rasa— to steep  as you cook)  

Simmer for 10-15 minutes until the apple is nice and soft. 

*2 options here: either blend in a food processor or blender for 5-10 seconds for a creamy  compote OR mash up the mix with a fork for a chunkier compote (**this option only works if  you used pre-brewed Rasa) 

Pancakes Recipe (Makes 4 pancakes) 

  • 1 cup einkorn flour (GF sub: oat / buckwheat / almond flour)  
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder  
  • 3/4 cup nut milk / oat / seed etc  
  • 2 chia eggs (2 tbsp chia seed + 5 tbsp water)  
  • 1 tsp vanilla  
  • Pinch fof himalayan salt  
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar / monk fruit / maple (optional)  
  • 1-2 tsp coconut oil for cooking (sub: Avo oil / ghee / EVOO)  


  1. In a large mixing bowl (or food processor) add all the dry ingredients. 
  2. Mix in the wet ingredients until a nice batter is formed (should be pretty thick— if you prefer  a thinner pancake, add a little more milk)  
  3. Heat up some oil on a griddle or frying pan  
  4. Add 1 scoop of mix per pancake (I used 2 tbsp mix per pancake) — depending on the size  of your pan, you could do 2-3 at a time). Turn down the heat — or your smoke alarm will  remind you to ;-) 
  5. Flip sides when bubbles appear (normally around 2 minutes on each side) 6. Viola! Throw on a plate and dollop Spiced Apple Compote on top! I personally like to also  add a little maple too— but you do you.  

Extra topping inspo: dried orange peel, fresh blueberries, coconut sugar/cinnamon, edible  flowers… vegan vanilla ice cream… mmmm. 😋
