Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I'm a 20-something home school graduate, runner, writer, and stylist and I love sharing my adventures in cooking, working, exercising, creating a home for me and my two kitties and my attempt to balance it all! The antiquated home schooling movement of the 1990's did not prepare me for how hard this is! Thus, this is my attempt at modern homemaking.

Coconut Flour Pancakes

Coconut Flour Pancakes

coconutflourpancakebreakfast.jpgGoing paleo has been surprisingly easy for me so far. I've been eating pretty healthy and cutting carbs the last year anyway, and I've found that I don't miss most carbs. However, there is one I was not willing to give up and that's pancakes. I ♥ pancakes! So I set about trying to find a good, fluffy pancake recipe that didn't use 32 different flours. I had coconut flour in the house so I just googled "coconut flour pancakes" I found a few recipes that used only coconut flour. The first one was a bust, and the second one was pretty good, but after a few tweeks it was really good.

This recipe is based on one by Bobs Red Mill, but I had to change a few things to make it paleo and punch up the flavor.

Ingredients

4 Eggs

3 Tbsp olive oil

1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk

1 tsp vanilla

1/4 cup organic coconut flour

1 Tbsp maple syrup

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp baking powder

Instructions

Preheat a skillet to medium or medium-high heat.

In a large bowl whisk together eggs, oil, vanilla and milk until well combined.

In a separate bowl sift coconut flour, sugar, salt and baking powder.

Add dry to wet and thoroughly mix until there are no lumps.

Ladle 2 Tbsp to 1/4 cup batter per pancake onto a hot skillet. Cook until bubbles begin to form on the top, about 4 minutes, then flip and cook on the second side.

Enjoy!
