Paleo Pancakes

Standard

I’ve been seeing primal and paleo pancake recipes across the web for months now and I just never really felt the impetus to try them. Generally I’m more of a savory breakfast girl than one to order pancakes or french toast. I can never turn down an omelet  or egg scramble loaded with fresh veggies and preferably something spicy! But my brother recently sent me this recipe he had adapted from The Paleo Solution so I figured it was about time I find out what all the paleo pancake hype was about.  It does amaze me how similar the texture is to real pancakes using no grains at all, and it was just as tasty! I added raspberries and unsweetened coconut to the batter while cooking and then drizzled the liquid left from the raspberries on the top with some pure maple syrup. So now I know, when I feel like a sweet breakfast treat I can have my pancakes and my protein too!

Paleo Pancakes (Adapted from The Paleo Solution by Robb Wolf) (Difficulty-Easy, Makes 3 medium pancakes)

  • 3 organic free-range eggs
  • 1/3 c. unsweetened applesauce (**I made my own–instructions below)
  • 1/3 c. raw almond butter (or other nut butter)
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • organic virgin coconut oil for frying
  • optional toppings: berries, sliced bananas, coconut, maple syrup
Whisk the eggs, applesauce, almond butter, cinnamon, salt and vanilla in a bowl until smooth. Homemade Applesauce: If you want to make your own applesauce, simply dice 1 or 2 organic apples and add them to a small saucepan. Squeeze 1-2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice, add 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon and 2 Tbsp. water to the pan and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer 15-20 or until apples are tender. Using a hand masher, mash the apples until they form a sauce.

Grease your cooking surface with about a Tbsp. of coconut oil. Spread a thin layer of batter on the skillet or griddle set on medium heat. Add raspberries and shredded coconut or other toppings. Flip after 1-2 mins when the batter starts to bubble and top and the bottom is slightly browned. Be careful flipping as this batter is definitely more delicate than its grain-filled counterpart.
