Paleo Pancakes

Ingredients:

1/4 cup Coconut Flour

1/8 tsp Baking Soda

Pinch of Salt

1/3 cup Cashew Milk*

2 tbsp Coconut Oil

3 Eggs

1-2 tbsp Honey

1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract

Butter or Coconut Oil for cooking

Instructions:

  1. With one medium bowl and one small bowl, separate egg whites from the yolks. Place the whites in the small bowl and the yolks in the medium bowl. Put small bowl with whites aside.
  2. In the medium sized bowl, mix the melted coconut oil and honey with the separated yolks.
  3. Add the cashew milk and vanilla extract. Mix.
  4. Incorporate the coconut flour, baking soda, and salt. Note, do not over mix or beat because you want to preserve the bubbles that the baking soda will create. These bubbles help your pancakes rise and be fluffy.
  5. Remembering the egg whites in the small bowl, whip the whites until stiff peaks form.
  6. Gently fold whites into the batter.
  7. On a hot griddle or pan, melt some butter or oil to coat your cooking surface. This will prevent your pancakes from sticking.
  8. Pour batter onto the hot cooking surface. I used a tablespoon to measure the perfect sized pancakes. Once the batter was on the surface, I spread them into a nicely round shape which were about 1/4 inch thick. Cook pancake 3 minutes or until golden on each side.
  9. ENJOY! Drizzle some homemade chocolate syrup over the top for the MOST DELICIOUS pancakes!

Notes:

*I use Silk’s Unsweetened Vanilla Cashew Milk. Other milks will work as well. For example, you could use almond, coconut, hemp, or whole milk. While you may change the milk, each may change the flavor slightly. I chose cashew milk because I found it to be the creamiest plant-based milk.

  6. In a small pot, melt the coconut oil and stir in the sugar until dissolved. Stir in flax eggs, orange juice, and plant based yogurt.

  10. Allow loaf to cool on counter. If you want it to cool quicker, place it in the refrigorator. Make sure you place a heat pad between the glass pan and the shelf. Also, make sure the pan is not touching anything else. Therefore, it does not melt anything in the frig.
  11. Slice and ENJOY!

*If you need almond butter, you can easily make it yourself. Check out my previous posts to find out how to make your own.

*Honey packs more nutrients when it’s raw and organic; therefore, I recommend to bake your brownies with it. Local honey also helps with allergies, so that would be even better!

*If you’re avoiding cane sugar, check the ingredients list on your vanilla extract. Brands often add cane sugar to their products.

*For optimal sweetness, use the ripest banana you can find.
