Blueberry Paleo Pancakes



Lately, I’ve been experiencing a lot of recipe failure. Partially because I'm trying to make many of my old recipes grain and sugar free. And partially because I usually wing it in the kitchen, with varying results. Wild experiments have produced some of my best recipes and some very botched dishes. I’ve tried to paleofy my best cookie recipe twice now, and it’s still not ready. I’ve got this chocolaty masterpiece in the works, but it’s not right yet. This afternoon, I began my quest for homemade tamales. I’ve made these once before with amazing results. But tonight my tamales exploded! Literally, the filling was everywhere in the steam pot. Don’t worry, I’ll still eat them. They are still quite tasty, just not ready to share. I figured out what I did wrong. But, I was so hoping I would have an epic tamale tale to tell tonight. Soon.


That turned to this ; (



What I do have is a recipe for some scrumptious paleo pancakes from this morning. So I'll share these.

Blueberry Paleo Pancakes (makes about 8, 4-inch pancakes)

Ingredients
2 small mashed bananas
2 eggs
3 Tablespoons almond butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
3 Tablespoons coconut flour
2 Tablespoons almond milk
pinch of salt
1 Cup blueberries (Revised 4/22/13, I forgot to mention the blueberries before ; )

Directions

1.) In a large bowl, use a whisk to beat mashed bananas, eggs, almond butter, vanilla and 
almond milk.

2.) Sprinkle in coconut flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon and mix until well-blended. Mix in blueberries.

3.) Heat electric griddle to 350 degrees F or put a large skillet on medium heat. Add 1 
Tablespoon coconut oil to whichever one you're using.

4.) Pour a scant 1/4 Cup of batter in little 4-inch rounds on griddle/skillet. Wait until little 
bubbles form & pop in the center of the pancakes, then flip. Mine took about 5 minutes 
each side. 

I enjoyed them with maple syrup!


P.S. If you ever try any of these recipes please leave a comment with results, suggestions, etc.

  3. 3 Researches PROVE How Coconut Oil Kills Fat.

    This means that you actually burn fat by eating Coconut Fat (in addition to coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).

    These 3 researches from big medical magazines are sure to turn the traditional nutrition world upside down!
