Paleo Pancakes!

For the first time I did a little Paleo baking with my coconut flour. I made Paleo pancakes this morning after being awakened at 4:30 am with a nightmare. (I did not get out of bed until Matt left for Cross fit at 5:50) The pancakes were a fun experiment. I think they did turn out a little dry but I am sure they would be delicious doused in butter and maple syrup. As for me, I enjoyed them with an egg. :)

Here is the recipe that I used that I got from:

I did not add any of the tempting toppings to keep this marginally healthy. (Still have 5 more days in my challenge!):

1/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg (I used less than 1/4 because nutmeg is often strong for me)
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 dropper of stevia
4 eggs
2 tbsp almond milk (I used instead of coconut milk and added one extra tbsp to make them more runny)

Cooked in coconut oil and added and egg on the side!

I think next time I would like to try some vanilla and leave out the stevia. Somehow I don't think pancakes themselves are supposed to be sweet. That's why we smother them in syrup...ha!

Anyway, great website that I got this from. I am so tempted by so many recipes on the blog that I might even buy the cookbook, yikes!!!

Matt tried them out after he got home from cross fit. He just said, "Make more!" They were too small. :) He liked them with honey.

One other note....I have no idea how many calories these things are but I DO know that I ate them at 6:30 am and wasn' t hungry until 3PM. Crazy!


  1. So, did they taste coconuty? I agree, I don't think pancakes themselves should be sweet. Kinda crazy you weren't hungry until 3, wow. Today, i was hungry all day long, ate my lunch at 10 and had joe bring me dinner before he went to work...
    Anyways, would love to try some of your baked concoctions one of these days!

  2. Sounds yummy. I love coconut! (usually with sugar ;)).
