Sunday Morning Coconut Pancakes


To borrow a phrase from Batty, posting a pancake recipe is about as cliche as posting about your new Vibrams, but here I am, posting one anyways.

To be honest, the great part of this recipe is less about the finished product (although these are the BEST, I swear!), & more about the actual recipe. Why? Because it’s a simple recipe that’s incredibly easy to memorize. My husband & I have pancakes almost every Sunday morning, & have since long before we went primal. We weren’t about the lose this weekly ritual just because of a little wheat!

This makes four pancakes, which is perfect for two people. If you have three people, all you have to do is add 1 to those first four ingredients (so three eggs, three tablespoons of oil, milk, & flour, etc). Four people? Do the same thing. Four eggs, four tablespoons, etc. What did I tell you? SO EASY.

The ingredients:
» 2 eggs
» 2 T coconut milk (or heavy cream, or whole milk)
» 2 T coconut flour
» 2 T coconut oil (or butter)
» 1 t vanilla
» 1 t baking powder
» 1 t cinnamon
» 1/2 t salt
» 1 t maple syrup (or honey)

Those last five ingredients, although important, are less important to be completely accurate. I often just throw in a dash or two of salt, baking powder, etc. The first four ingredients really make the recipe; the others are much less important. I’ve even forgotten the baking powder altogether & although there was much less fluffiness, there was certainly lots of yum.

How to do it:
01) Thorougly mix everything together with a whisk.
02) Allow batter to rest for 5-10 minutes, so the coconut flour can soak everything up (& you can finish the bacon).
03) Cook in bacon drippings, butter, or coconut oil.
04) Serve with butter & berries or real maple syrup.
