I used to love eating pancakes – the grain-based kind, preferably with chocolate chips in the batter, and lots of maple syrup for topping. I still am a fan of pancakes, although now I stick to paleo ingredients. Maybe I enjoy them so much because they are a childhood comfort food. From a nutritional standpoint, they are very effective egg carriers, especially for those seeking some variety at the breakfast table. So for the rest of this week I will be posting some of my favorite grain-free pancake recipes – be sure to stop by for some more morning inspiration!
I love how bright these pancakes are – the same color as my canary yellow tablecloth. And it is not because of artificial colors, but rather healthy, pastured egg yolks. These are delicious with fresh berries, honey, maple syrup, whipped cream, coconut cream, or any combination of the above. This recipe makes four large (6 inches) and filling pancakes. I will eat one as a side to my two-egg breakfast and feel completely satisfied.
¼ cup coconut flour
¼ cup yogurt (if you do cultured dairy) or coconut milk, or coconut milk kefir
(the tang of cultured foods adds a wonderful dimension to these pancakes)
1 tbsp honey
Oil for frying (I prefer coconut)
Combine all ingredients, whisking well to get rid of all lumps, heat up a skillet or griddle, melt your oil, and spread the batter into the shape you desire. It will be thicker than the average, glutenous pancake batter, so you will have to actively shape your cakes. Cook until golden brown, flip, and leave on the griddle until cooked through. Serve up with whatever toppings you prefer.
