For the first time in about 8 weeks, I was actually home on a Sunday morning with nothing to do and no responsibilities, which meant it was the perfect time to try out a new paleo pancake recipe on F, who of course was more than happy to oblige. I’ve done several paleo pancake recipes that traditionally revolve around heavy use of almond flour and almond butter. Although a few versions have been decent, none have knocked my socks of or come anywhere close to resembling an actual pancake.
Until I met coconut flour pancakes. With blueberry sauce.
The coconut milk/coconut flour combo in the mix makes the pancakes light and fluffy just like regular ol’ pancakes. The taste is light as well, not super rich like many almond butter pancake recipes.
The blueberry sauce on top adds just the right amount of liquid sweetness so that you don’t miss that maple syrup – but if you do miss syrup and are feeling like a cheat – toss a little bit on top, I won’t tell
These pancakes are PERFECT for discerning children/spouses/roommates/non-paleo eaters in general.
COCONUT FLOUR PANCAKES
1/2 cup coconut flour
1 1/2 cup coconut milk (full fat)
1T baking soda
1T vanilla extract
2 tsp cinnamon (I added a few extra shakes being a cinnamon addict)
a pinch of sea salt
DIRECTIONS: Mix the eggs, coconut milk, and vanilla in one bowl. In another bowl, mix the coconut flour, baking soda, cinnamon and sea salt. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well. The batter will be a bit thicker than regular pancake batter. Heat up a frying pan on medium-high or a griddle to 400 degrees. Spread a little bit of butter or coconut oil on the pan/griddle to prevent sticking. Place large spoonfuls of the batter onto the pan/griddle and let cook for about 4-5 minutes each side. Because of the high fat density they take a couple minutes longer than regular pancakes
1 1/2 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen, doesn’t matter)
1/2 cup orange juice
1 tsp arrowroot powder
1/4 cup water
DIRECTIONS: Combine the arrowroot powder and water in a small dish until the arrowroot powder dissolves. Heat the blueberries and orange juice in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Add the powder/water mixture to the blueberries and stir on low heat for 5-7 minutes, or until it thickens a bit.
Pour your blueberry sauce over your pancakes and enjoy!! Happy breakfast
Peace love and paleo xxoo
