    How to Make Paleo Pancakes

    You can mix the batter in a blender, or mash it with a potato masher, or mixer. Then, cook over medium or medium-high heat for about 1-2 minutes on each side. Flip carefully on the other side using a spatula. And finally, top with your favorite fruits like strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries, and a drizzle of maple syrup.

    5 Tips for Making the Perfect Paleo Pancakes

    • Separate the egg whites and beat them separately before adding them to the remaining ingredients makes for very light and fluffy pancakes. It’s not necessary to separate the egg whites, but if you have time, you can try this method.
    • Allow the batter to rest for a couple of minutes before cooking. This gives the coconut flour in the batter time to absorb some liquid, which gives the pancakes a better texture. The baking powder also gets to work, making bubbles and lightening the batter even more.
    • Cook the pancakes over medium heat so they don’t burn. If it takes too long to cook, you can increase the heat to medium-high but be careful and watch that the Paleo pancakes don’t burn.
    • Don’t overcrowd the pan with pancakes. Allow enough room for the pancakes to cook without attaching together. Leaving enough room in the pan will also help you when it’s time to flip the pancakes.
    • Use a large silicone spatula to flip the pancakes so they don’t break. Carefully slide the spatula under the pancake after about 1-2 minutes and check if it’s done, and then flip the pancake carefully.

    Has anyone tried these without bananas? My wife is allergic and we are trying to incorporate paleo wherever we can. Ive read that an extra egg and 1/2 cup of apple sauce can replace them? Any luck or tips from anyone out there? Thank you.

    These unfortunately ended up in the trash. They wouldn’t cook properly. I tried going thinner, lower heat, higher heat, but they all ended up burned on the outside and too cakey on the inside. Such a shame because the batter was delicious and should work, just something is off about this. I tried various pans and oils too. And I’ve made plenty of pancakes in my day. Not a single one came out perfectly.

      Hi Sarah, I am sorry to hear they didn’t turn out well. You don’t have to make the batter thinner. The reason why they are too cakey on the inside is probably because you used a lot of batter for each pancake. Try to go small and use only 1/4 cup for each pancake and cook it over medium heat. And, also wait a few minutes after you mix the batter before you start cooking the pancakes. Hope they turn out better next time.
