Kate McLeod’s Pillowy (Mochi Flour) Pancakes


The ex–pastry chef turned clean skin-care founder—her gorgeous brand makes some of our favorite skin-coddling body bars—is still an expert in the kitchen.

1. Mix the first 4 ingredients together in a bowl. Once blended, stir in the almonds and mochi flour (the more flour, the more of a delicate crumb your flapjack will have). If the batter is too liquid-y, stir in the gluten-free flour.

2. Grease your skillet (McLeod uses a cast-iron one) and heat it on low. Add the desired amount of batter and cook on low—don’t flip the pancake until you see bubbles.

3. Enjoy with maple syrup.
