Coco-nutty Paleo Pancakes

Since we just mentioned almond flour, let's start cooking caveman-style(*) with a couple of almond flour recipes. Although these pancakes contain both coconut flour and coconut oil, the coconut taste is very subtle. They are a common weekend treat around my cave, served with either all-fruit jam or agave syrup and a side of bacon (cured without sugar). It's based on a recipe found here.

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 Tbsp coconut flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup water (use "fizzy" or soda water for slightly fluffier pancakes)
  • 2 Tbsp oil (we use coconut oil)
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 Tbsp sugar-equivalent of sweetener of your choice (or 1 dropper-full of liquid stevia)

  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl. The batter will be very thick and somewhat sticky.
  2. Drop by 1/4 cup onto a lightly-oiled, non-stick frying pan over medium heat. You will likely have to "pat down" the batter into a proper pancake due to its thickness.
  3. Flip when just browned, and brown the other side.
This recipe should make around six pancakes. Since they are protein-based they are pretty filling, so even though they're small they'll serve two people.

(*) Yes, I know cavemen didn't have non-stick frying pans, or fizzy water for that matter. Their loss, really.
