It’s Paleo Pancakes time! But if you had told me a few months back that I would give up my regular pancakes forever for this (weird?) paleo stand in, I would’ve laughed in your face and proceeded to cover my body in high carb white flour in an act of rebellion.
Everything lined up perfectly, as I ran across Paleo Baking Flour just after making that decision. I was hesitant at first because the mix costs more than normal flour (the mix is a blend of almond flour, coconut flour, arrowroot starch and tapioca flour), yet I’m all for it now with no qualms at all, because it’s just what I needed.
But what exactly does Paleo mean?
Paleo is eating with a caveman mindset for the sake weight loss and staying fit. The focus is on meats, veggies, fish, nuts, seeds, and anything else you can hunt and gather as opposed to eating grains. This makes white flour a huge Paleo no-no. Although I don’t follow a Paleo diet per-se, the Paleo concept regarding flour has helped to keep my belly from hurting.
So yes, I am most definitely in love with my Paleo Pancakes using Bob’s Red Mill. It’s a convenient way to whip up pancakes, muffins, waffles, cake, cookies, pizza crust and other floury things that you love.
Paleo Pancakes Recipe
Feel free to use any kind of sweetener you choose, but try to keep it as healthy as possible. These pancakes are low carb and also meet the requirements for a keto (ketogenic) diet.
- 1 cup Paleo Baking Flour
- ¾ tsp baking soda
- ¼ tsp salt
- 2 eggs
- ⅓ cup non-dairy milk or water (I used almond milk)
- 1 tbsp melted coconut oil
- 2 tsp honey or maple syrup (I used sugar in the raw)
- ½ tsp vanilla extract (I eyeballed it and added more)
- Prepare wet and dry ingredients in separate bowls, then mix altogether.
- If batter is too thick, add more non-dairy milk/water to desired consistency
- Heat pan to medium and add butter
- Cook approximately 3-4 mins on each side.
- Enjoy your pancakes!
These pancakes were a hit with my entire family. Not one of them bitched a fit with complaints about the taste or texture. Paleo pancakes are very easy to enjoy. There’s no reason for me to go back to eating the white flour stuff again…ever.
