Coconut Flour Banana Pancakes

I’ve tried several pancake recipes that have been okay, but not great. I’ve also never had huge success with coconut flour. This, however, totally works. It’s a passable paleo pancake!!

Ingredients:

  • 6 eggs
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1 date
  • 1 small ripe banana
  • 2 Teaspoons vanilla (optional)
  • 1/2 Tablespoon baking soda
  • 2 Teaspoons cinnamon
  • 3/4 Cup coconut flour

Instructions:

  1. Put first five ingredients in the blender, and let ‘er rip until the date is unrecognizable.
  2. Pour into a bowl and add the other ingredients.
  3. Cook on medium heat in a touch of coconut oil. Try to keep the pancakes small or they’re difficult to flip.

Paleo French “Toast”!

Ingredients:
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/8 tsp almond extract
  • 1/4 tsp all spice
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 packets stevia
  • Eggplant
Directions:
  1. Peel the skin from the eggplant  and slice into as many pieces as you want to use. (Don’t make them too thick!)
  2. Now just use that like your bread and ta-da! Mix the eggs, spices and stevia together in a bowl and dip each eggplant slice into the mixture so the back and the front is covered.
  3. Immediately place into a oiled (I used coconut oil) pan (appox medium heat).
  4. Cook enough so that the egg mixture starts to brown a little on the edges, then flip.
  5. We topped them with 100% maple syrup- veryyyyy small amount.
  6. Enjoy!!

Paleo Pumpkin Pancakes

Talk about alliteration! This was adapted from my good friend Desi (and it’s her picture)! She just started her own paleo blog: http://paleodeliciousness.wordpress.com/

Ingredients:

¼ cup coconut or almond flour

¼  teaspoon baking soda

¼  teaspoon salt

½  teaspoon cinnamon

pinch of nutmeg

¼ cup pumpkin puree

3 eggs

1 tablespoon coconut milk

1 tablespoon coconut oil

2 tablespoon apple sauce

1 tablespoon vanilla

½ teaspoon honey (optional)

¼ cup blueberries (optional, but obviously delicious)

Instructions:

1. Mix together coconut/almond flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg with a whisk.

2. In another bowl, whisk together eggs, coconut oil, coconut milk, apple sauce, honey, vanilla, and pumpkin puree.

3. Gradually add the coconut/almond flour mixture to the egg mixture as you whisk the ingredients together until well combined.

4. Heat coconut oil over medium-low heat until melted.

5. Spoon the batter into the pan in whatever size you prefer. The batter is thick, so you can shape them with the spoon. They do not bubble like regular pancakes, so keep an eye on them to make sure they’re done on one side, then flip. They should need several minutes for each side.

6. Check the edges to see if they’re done. No raw batter should show.

7. Serve with maple syrup, fruit, butter, almond butter, or plain.
