Paleo Pancakes

You need to go to Sahara Mart or Amazon.com and purchase coconut flour.  These pancakes REALLY hit the spot on a lazy Sunday.  This recipe is from The Primal Blueprint with a few additions from me.

3 eggs

3Tbs melted butter/oil (I think I leave this out, too)

1/4 cup plus 2Tbs coconut milk

1/2 tsp honey (I left this out)

1/4 cup Coconut Flour

1/4 cup almond flour (the best kind is the non-bleached, finely ground flour. Sahara Mart and Trader Joes has the kind I like)

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 cup or so of water (i left this out)

1tsp vanilla

optional: 1 Tbs (we like cinnamon)

Optional: half a banana

optional: some almond butter

(from my head, not the book)

First, turn your oven on Medium Heat and pre-heat your oven to Keep Warm and put a plate in it.  Then, mix all the wet ingredients.  You can mix the dry ingredients in another bowl, I just don’t because that means I have more to wash later.  I didn’t add the honey because I’ll usually top it with some honey; I just don’t need it inside my pancake.  I also leave out the water because I just keep pouring Coconut Milk (or almond milk since it’s cheaper to purchase and you can hardly taste the difference) until I get the consistency I want. I don’t measure it out precicely 1/4 cup + 2 Tablespoons because, again, it’s more to wash. It’s really no big deal to just pour away.  You don’t want it too runny, but I also don’t like it very thick.  You will find this will cook similar to regular pancakes.  The bottoms should turn golden brown.  I like to top it with some type of unsweetened apple butter or pumpkin butter. Maple syrup and honey are also fine.  Use these in moderation – you should not have soggy, sugar-drenched pancakes.

To be honest, as the cook, I like to eat my meals with “the family” (me and shaun).  So I definitely will keep the pancakes warm in the oven until my whole meal is finished.  We usually have 5-6 pancakes each, plus a few strips of bacon or ham and 1-2 eggs.
