PALEO PANCAKES!!!!!! (finally!)

Seen here with butternut squash hashbrowns

And now the moment I'm sure you've all been waiting for...

We finally made a paleo pancake that was GOOD both in looks and taste!  I know, right?  Contain your excitement please, it only took three tries.  Here were attempt numbers one and two.  I guess the third time's the charm...

Flippin' (literally and figuratively) Awesome Paleo Pancakes!*
1/3 c. Almond Flour
1/3 c. Flaxseed Meal
1/3 c. unsweetened coconut (I stuck mine in the food processor to finely chop)
2 eggs
1/3 c. Almond Milk
1 tsp. Vanilla
1 tsp. Cinnamon
1 Tbsp. honey
dash of salt
1/2 tsp. baking powder
Canola Oil

In a bowl, mix together dry ingredients and add in wet ingredients.  Place a large skillet or griddle on the stove.  Heat on medium-high heat.  These pancakes worked the best by pouring around a 1/2 Tbsp. of oil in the pan, letting it heat up and then spooning on the batter.  They cook pretty quickly and will not bubble up, so flip around a minute or so.  I served mine with real maple syrup (probably not the purest paleo meal, but hey, we gotta live in the 21st century, right? jk).  This recipe made around 6 small pancakes.

I knew we were in for luck when we decided to have a breakfast dinner (my fav).  Now I just need suggestions for what to serve it with other than the (highly delicious) maple syrup.  Any ideas?  Anyone think paleo waffles are possible?

*The inspiration for these pancakes came from a comment left by Sara several weeks ago.  Check out her blog, Edible


  1. Congrats on the pancakes.. will we get to see pictures? Glad to see some kind of leavener used.. I see a lot of paleo pancakes without leaveners and I always wonder if they are really dense.

    For a topping, how about a syrup made of reduced fruit - blueberries or raspberries with a splash of lemon, mashed strawberries, peaches with a splash of orange juice, etc.

    If you allow artificial sweeteners, you might add a bit of no sugar preserves to the fruit - apricot and peaches - or just melt that to have a syrup, such as grape.

    For the waffles - SoG did an Old World Waffle, so I'm sure you could too!

  2. Yes, I plan on posting pic tonight! The last pancakes I made (attempt number two) were WAY too dense for my taste.

    I love the idea of the reduced fruit. I'll have to give that a try. Thanks Confessor!
