Think that you can’t celebrate pancake day without breaking paleo? Think again! The wonderful people of Paleo Hacks have this delicious recipe which I had to share with you. As with my previous post, full credit goes to Paleo Hacks as the recipe comes from them. It’s strange how we all seem to forget about pancakes except around the time of February 17th and every year my family seems to say “we really should have pancakes more often” yet we never do. Does this sound familiar?
The number of pancakes you will get from this recipe will all depend on the diameter of your frying pan and how thick you like your pancakes. I made the original recipe from Paleo Hacks and they said it made eight pancakes however I only got three out of the mixture (although I think you can get four as my second one was a bit thicker than the others). I advise that you use the original recipe but try it in your own pan to see how much you need to increase the recipe (if you want to make more).
Preparation to Plate 20 minutes
Consume within 1 day
Best served hot
35g Coconut Flour
60mL Coconut Milk
3 tbsp Coconut Oil
½ tsp Vanilla Extract
1/8 tsp Baking Soda
2 tbsp Organic, Raw Honey (optional)
Mix together the eggs, coconut oil and honey in a bowl or large measuring jug before adding in the coconut milk and vanilla extract. Now add in the coconut flour and baking soda and gently mix just to combine, nothing more.
In a small frying pan melt a nob of butter over a medium-high heat and add a small amount of the batter so that the bottom of the pan is covered; this is where my results and your results may differ. Cook for a few minutes until the bottom is brown using a pallet knife to ensure the pancakes does stick to the side of the pan.
The pancakes should be done after a couple of minutes of cooking, you can use a pallet knife of spatula to check underneath or if you are an experience pancake flipper (like myself) you will know when it’s time to flip them over. Word of warning you might get some spaces when you flip them unlike normal pancakes!
Once the packers are done, put on a plate and eat instantly. I’d recommend serving it with chopped banana, blueberries or sliced strawberries and a glass of coconut milk or even paleo ice cream or sorbet (recipes coming for 2015)!
