Here’s the back story.
You see, 5 years ago my husband was knee deep in triathlon training. Sundays were his long run days, which meant that I was in charge of recovery meals. Hence the pancakes.
Well, back then, keto was not a thing, but grain free was definitely thing in our household. We tested out tons of grain free recipes for post recovery fuel. And guess what we found? IT HELPED with recovery and reducing inflammation. At least for us. To each their own, right?
Today I’m sharing that oldie but goodie grain free pancake recipe made with just a few ingredients. Coconut flour being key!
COCONUT FLOUR BAKING TIP:
If your coconut flour is clumpy or heavy, grind it in the food processor before using in a recipe, like say… a coconut flour pancake recipe.
Let’s discuss these two options here, shall we?
Coconut Flour Pancakes – version #1
The first way to make coconut flour pancakes is the lightly sweetened way. Blend in a banana and that’s all you need for perfectly lightly sweetened paleo pancakes.
If your body needs more natural glycogen (sugar) and carbs, then drizzle maple syrup on top and smidge of nuts. BALANCED MACROS YO!
Another way to make pancakes with coconut flour
LOW CARB / PALEO / SUGAR FREE
But… if you’re looking for lower carb, paleo or sugar free pancakes made with coconut flour, then just skip the banana and use my adjustments in the recipe below. Both are delicious!
The coconut flour pancakes without banana cook faster and are a different texture, but it’s all good because you can fancy them up however you’d like.
Obviously I have a serious obsession with flowers, so my coconut flour pancakes come with a side of edible flowers, nuts, and berries. No syrup needed.
Final cooking side note:
Cooking times will vary per pan. A cast iron pan will cook the pancakes faster. A crepe pan will cook more evenly. I used a large griddle, which works great but I recommended adding a little oil or butter after making 1-2 pancakes
Either way, these grain free pancakes (2 ways) will be satisfy that carbalicious craving. I made 2 batches abd froze half for the next weekend.
Actually, I lied. I froze half then had a serious hankering for pancakes midweek. So I thawed out a few to go pair with poached eggs. It was my solo dinner brinner and It was glorious!Print
Sorry kiwi, I just ate the pancakes I promised to save you.
What’s your trick to making grain free or paleo friendly pancakes?
Which came first, the banana pancake or the coconut flour pancake? Bahaha don’t answer that. Just laugh. #ineedcoffee
