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
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!
