Weekend Breakfast: Fluffy German pancakes with Almonds and Raisins

We generally use the weekend breakfast to spent a relaxed morning together to catch up from the week and all the things that have been going on. Many of you probably have busy mornings and don't get to spend enough time with your loved ones. Even if you are single it can be a good and relaxing thing to sit down read a newspaper and spend a little more time than normal. 
A special breakfast is in order for that :)!!
Today it is a healthier and fluffy version of German pancakes. 

250 g of flour (two cups) We used 3/4 of a cup whole wheat and 1 1/4 cups spelt flour
2 eggs
1 3/4 cups (375 ml) of milk 
10-15 chopped almonds (you can easily chop them yourself). Almonds have many heath benefits such as regulating cholesterol and blood pressure among many others. Search the web!!
2 tbs raisins
1 tsp honey
1/2 tsp backing powder
1 pinch of sea salt
2 tbs oil (olive, or sunflower oil. Do not use vegetable oil, it is usually lower quality oil and doesn't contain the essential fatty acids, due to the manufacturing process and ingredients).

1 apple or any other fruit
1-3 tbs of your favorite berry jam

Add flour and the other dry ingredients to the mixing bowl, add the eggs and slowly start mixing. Slowly pour the milk in the mixing bowl and mix until you have a smooth dough.

Cooking directions:
Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Make pancakes from one ladle at the time and cook them from both sides.

Serving ideas.
Take a couple of table spoons of the chopped up apples and pour some of your favorite jam over it

Bon Appetit!!

Have a great weekend!
