  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 2 cups of pistachios (260g)
  • 1/8 teaspoon Himalayan salt (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons simple pistachio butter

Instructions

Simple Pistachio Butter with the Nutramilk.
  • Place pistachios & salt in the NutraMilk container.
  • Press Butter cycle, set for 5-6 minutes and press start.
  • Open the container lid. If necessary, set for an additional 1-2 minutes for creamier consistency.
  • Set aside 5 tablespoons of the butter for this recipe and then store the remainder in the refrigerator for later use as a spread or for other recipes.
Pistachio butter to top off pancakes
  • Whisk together dairy butter and simple pistachio butter until combined. You can use it just like this or place it in the fridge to harden a bit. If so, you can wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and store it until needed.
Pancakes
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, soda and salt. Whisk together until combined.
  • Separately, whisk together dairy butter and simple pistachio butter until combined. You can place both in the microwave for a few seconds to soften which will be easier to combine.
  • In a smaller bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla extract and dairy & simple pistachio butter combo. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, mixing until smooth and combined.
  • Heat a large skillet or electric griddle over medium heat. Add a bit of butter if desired, then pour 1/4 cup of batter on the hot skillet and repeat, leaving an inch between pancakes. Cook until the pancakes bubble on the top and edges, about 2 minutes. Flip and cook for another minute or two until golden and set.
  • Top the pancakes with the pistachio butter, maple syrup and sprinkle chopped pistachios (optional).
