Ok so its ok to cheat from time to time. But if I can avoid cheating and enjoy some pancakes on Tuesday, that would be great.
So if anyone knows any recipes for some good Paleo pancakes or some close seconds, i.e. with dairy then I would be very greatful to know.
I've been making my paleo pancakes with this recipe - consistently satisfies...
Coconut flour pancakes
I like to top mine with "Blueberry sauce" - simply frozen blueberries warmed in a saucepan with a good sprinkle of cinnamon
Combine all ingredients (except blueberries) with a blender until smooth. Add blueberries. Heat a large pan on medium – high heat (I had to go high heat on my stove) with your oil of choice. Cook pancakes 2-3 minutes on each side.
These are my personal favorites! (surprised no one mentioned them yet!)
I add a dash of cinnanamon and make sure the bananas aren't too ripe or it's too soupy. Also be sure to make them silver dollar sized as they'll fall apart. I fry mine up in coconut oil - they are AMAZING! :) throw some blueberries on top - eat with bacon and eggs...mmmmm I want some right now!
The Primal Blueprint Cookbook. There pretty good
3 TBSP Oil or Melted Butter(I used EVOO)
1/4 Cup plus 2 TBSP Coconut Milk
1/2 tsp Honey
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/4 tsp Salt
1/2 cup coconut flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup or so of water
optional additions: flaked coconut, berries, nuts, cinnamon
Whisk together eggs, oil, coconut milk, honey, and vanilla. In a seperate bowl, stir together dry ingredients, then add the wet ingredients, stirring until smooth. Add the water to thin the batter out until it reaches your desired consistency. In a well oil pan or griddle cook pancakes until browned on both sides. enjoy
Why am I seeing recipes that recommend cooking with almond flour? Tisk Tisk.
Try this recipe! You can make even closer to "Paleo" or whatever by removing the fruit and/or maple syrup drizzle.
I make pancakes that are kind of a mix between the MDA recipe and SCDKat's recipe.
About 1/4 C pureed fruit (I like nectarine, and just pureed some strawberries to try later) 1 egg About 1-2 tsp almond butter a dash of vanilla extract a dash of cinnamon
Mix until smooth, then cook in plenty of coconut oil or butter. Add dark chocolate chips if you want (I do).
Alternatively, use 1 over ripe banana or an individual serving of applesauce. Double everything else in the recipe if you use these (unless your banana is one of those teeny red ones or your applesauce is a baby food jar).
I puree a bunch of fruit ahead of time and freeze it flat so that I can just break off and thaw however much I want the night before.
Also- SCDKat's recipe is literally just 1 banana + 2 eggs. As easy as you can get, but doesn't hold together quite as well.
i used to make my own mix but now i just buy pamela's gluten free pancake mix. it's pretty friggin good and the texture is the closest i've seen that is actually like pancakes. also the ingredient list doesn't look too bad if you're not terrified of starch.
I like the banana ones from MDA, but they are pretty delicate/hard to flip so I've done some tweaking:
3 beaten eggs
2 mashed bananas
1/2 cup almond butter
2 TBS coconut flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
I just blend it all together in the food processor and fry in clarified butter or coconut oil. I keep them just 4 inches in diameter or so. Sometimes I add chopped apple to the batter; reminds me of my mom's german-style pancakes :)
these are super simple and tasty
First cook your bacon in a nonstick pan remove bacon but not rendered fat
1/4 cup Almond Meal 1/4 cup Hazelnut meal 1 egg 1/4 cup water 1 T pure maple
cook over med/low heat, let it really set up first before flipping, but check the bottom side so it doesn't burn on you
