The Best Kamut Pancake Recipe {Hands Down} Packed with Protein

It's Sweet to Share!

I’ve never understood why people love pancakes so much, or why restaurants offer them as a side item as popular as french fries. French fries I can get behind. Hashbrowns I can get behind. But Pancakes? They have zero structure. They just dissolve in your mouth like cotton. In fact, they taste like cotton. That is… until I tried these sourdough Kamut pancakes. 

Kamut Pancakes

Seriously, this ancient wheat Einkorn pancake recipe or Kamut pancakes – you can make them with any type of ancient wheat, are nothing like the flimsy pancakes they give out for free at your local IHOP.

These yummy pancakes give true meaning to the name cakes made in a pan. Kamut pancakes are thick and buttery, they are moist, they are flavorful, and they are melt in your mouth good. 

Sourdough Kamut

When I first made my sourdough close to 2 years ago (it’s still thriving after traveling cross country twice!) I first tried making sourdough ancient wheat kamut pancakes.

Sourdough really gives these kamut pancakes an edge. Then by adding some amazing additional ingredients this recipe will become your go to breakfast recipe and the reason your fridge is full of rotating sourdough feeds.

Love at First Bite

These pancakes converted me from pancake hater to pancake lover. I am a changed woman! 

Standard sourdough pancakes simply take sourdough, flour, eggs, and milk. But, this recipe goes beyond standard. 

  • These pancakes are packed full of protein, zinc and Omega 3’s from ancient wheat
  • Fiber, potassium and Vitamin E from peanut butter
  • Vitamin C, B6 and magnesium from bananas
  • And anti-inflammatory cocoa powder that is high in phytonutrients. 

One thing these pancakes are not full of? Gluten, sugar, and refined carbohydrates.

Sourdough Discard

This recipe does use a lot of sourdough discard. Unless you bake sourdough everyday, you might not have this much on hand. But no worries. You can feed your sourdough a day before, or even the night before to make up the difference. 

Instead of discarding your old starter, keep it all and just feed it! 

Feeding Sourdough

There are lots of different ways to feed your sourdough. You can go with weights, or you can go by volume.

I like to keep it easy and just use equal parts starter and water, and add just shy double the amount of flour.

Why Ancient Wheat?

Ancient Wheat will keep your sourdough good and fed. It is packed full of all the wheat, all the brain, and all the nutrients so the starters has so much to feed off of. 

Why Sourdough?

Sourdough has so many benefits. 

The two that are my favorite are:

  1. Souring the flour eliminates all the phytic acid in the wheat. Did you know phytic acid causes tooth decay? It actually stops your body from absorbing nutrients. 
  2. It effectively eliminates the gluten from flour while not eliminating the structure that gluten provides to baked goods.
