The BEST paleo pancakes

You guys! I finally found what I consider to be the BEST recipe for paleo pancakes. They are toddler approved, husband approved and me approved, so that’s a win,win,win in my book!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, at room temperature
  • 4 tablespoons virgin coconut oil, melted and cooled
  • 4 eggs, at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

Directions:

In a mixer, place the milk, melted coconut oil, eggs and honey to combine. Then slowly add the coconut flour, tapioca flour, salt and baking powder, and whisk to combine well. Once all of the dry ingredients have been added, mix until very smooth. Allow the batter to sit for about 2 minutes (it will thicken and begin to appear a bit clumpy), and then blend again until smooth. The batter will be thick.

Heat a griddle or lightly greased nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Pour batter onto the hot griddle and spread the batter into a circle, just less than 1/4-inch thick. Repeat with as many pancakes as can fit comfortably at one time, without touching (or if your like me just make a big giant pancake). Allow the pancakes to cook for less than 2 minutes, or until the underside is evenly browned. With a wide, flat spatula, carefully flip over each pancake, and continue to cook until set on the underside (about another 45 seconds). Remove from the skillet, and repeat with the remaining batter.

Tips:

Now that I have made these pancakes more times than I would like to comfortably admit, I have a few tips πŸ™‚ It really is important to try and get all the wet ingredients to the same temperature! If you pour hot coconut oil into the eggs, they will scramble – not that this ever happened to me, I heard it from uhhh a “friend” πŸ˜‰ Oh and if the coconut oil isn’t a similar temperature than the rest, it turns hard… it’s a little bit of a shit show but as long as everything is room temperature, you’re good to go!

Another tip, if you like a more crepe/ pfannkuchen pancake, only use a 1/2 cup coconut flour and a smidge more milk and they will be thin and super delicious.
