You don’t have to say goodbye to pancakes forever just because you’re on the Paleo diet! Try these delicious Paleo pancakes when you get that craving for a short stack…
While there are plenty of yummy breakfast options for Paleo eaters (eggs & bacon, anyone?), sometimes you just crave a hot, delicious, stack of fluffy pancakes. Unfortunately, pancakes are simply off the table if you’re on a Paleo diet…or are they?
Paleo pancakes to the rescue!
While these pancakes may not be made with quite the same ingredients as in your pre-Paleo days, they provide a very acceptable and delicious replacement.
The recipe below is full of plenty of protein, fiber, and healthy fats, and it’s made with healthy and Paleo-acceptable ingredients like coconut flour, coconut oil, raw honey (yes, raw honey is Paleo), and almond milk (you could also use coconut milk for a richer flavor).
Garnish with fresh fruit, or serve drizzled with real maple syrup. Yum!
The Best Basic Paleo Pancake Recipe
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 pinch salt
3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
1 tablespoon raw honey
3 large eggs, at room temperature
1/3 cup almond milk (or make your own)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Zest of 1 orange
Zest of 1 lemon
Coconut oil for frying pancakes
Maple syrup or coconut nectar, to serve
In a large bowl, whisk together coconut flour, baking powder, and salt.
In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together coconut oil, honey, eggs, almond milk, vanilla, and orange and lemon zests. Pour mixture into flour mixture and fold to combine, breaking up any large lumps.
Heat 1 tablespoon coconut oil in large skillet over medium heat. Pour small 1/4 cupfuls into the skillet and cook until bottom has turned golden brown, 2 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on other side. Continue cooking until all batter has been used, adding more coconut oil to skillet as needed. Serve warm with maple syrup or coconut nectar.
