Fluffy Paleo Pancakes
Paleo Pancakes for a Healthy Morning Treat
Switching to a Paleo diet doesn't mean you have to give up your favorite Saturday morning breakfast treat. These Paleo pancakes easily take the place of conventional buttermilk pancakes. They're light, fluffy, and delicious, making you forget all about the gluten-free part.
Add chopped strawberries, blueberries, or chocolate chips to fit your mood. Use your imagination!
This is About How Long They Take
- Prep time: 15 min
- Cook time: 15 min
- Ready in: 30 min
- Yields: About 12 to 15 three-inch pancakes
This is What You'll Use
- 1/4 cup almond flour
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- pinch salt
- 4 eggs
- 1 teaspoon maple syrup
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1/4 cup coconut milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon melted butter, (optional)
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips or berries, (optional)
- butter or coconut oil, for the pan
- Add each ingredient, one at a time. Whisk together after each addition.
- Heat the pan over medium-low heat and add butter or coconut oil.
- Drop spoonfuls into the pan. Don't let them get too big because then they become difficult to flip.
- Keep an eye on your pancakes. They may bubble a little, but not like the wheat-flour variety we're all used to.
- Put each one on a plate as they finish cooking and add butter (if you like). You may also add maple syrup or fruit as a topping. Strawberries are especially tasty on these pancakes.
Paleo Pancake Tools
Flipping With a Non-Non-Stick
I don't use non-stick pans because Teflon is toxic.
Sometimes it's more difficult, but you end up finding your own tricks to keep your food from sticking.
When I make eggs or Paleo pancakes, I melt a tablespoon of butter and heat it until it's starts bubbling lightly. Doing this makes the pan exactly like a non-stick, so eggs and pancakes flip easily.
Almond and Coconut Flours
Make Your Own Almond Flour: It's Easy and Saves Money
You can buy almond flour already prepared or you can make it yourself.
To make it at home, use a coffee grinder (that you use only for grinding almonds or seeds). You may also use a food processor.
Blanched almonds that are slivered or sliced grind up quickly and easily.
Grind up your almonds until it resembles flour. There are usually several small almond pieces left over. You can strain them out, if you want.
You also have the option of buying prepared almond flour. You can find it in health food stores, and more supermarkets are also carrying almond flour.
