    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.

    INGREDIENTS

    INSTRUCTIONS

    • Preheat a non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 Tbsp of coconut oil. 
    • Combine all ingredients (except berries) in a medium mixing bowl and mix with a mixer until smooth. The batter should be thick, but pourable. If it seems thin, add 1-2 more tablespoons of coconut flour. Let the batter sit for a couple of minutes.
    • Using a ladle, scoop about 1/4 cup of the batter and pour into the preheated pan. Cook for about 2 minutes on each side until the bottom of the pancake is golden-brown and the edges are firm. Flip gently with a flexible spatula, and continue cooking another 2 minutes. If the bottoms turn dark, lower the heat a little.
    • Repeat for remaining pancakes. If necessary, add 1 Tbsp of coconut oil after each batch of pancakes.
    • Drizzle some maple syrup and top with berries (raspberries, blueberries and strawberries)

    Hi!
    We love this recipe! Thanks for sharing I am just wondering if you have ever frozen the extra pancakes? If so how did they reheat?

      Neli | Delicious Meets Healthy

      Hi Krissy, I haven’t frozen and thawed these pancakes before. I will try and add it later in the instructions. But I think you can reheat them in the oven at 375 F covered with foil for about 8-10 minutes. Or in the microwave, if you microwave them on high for 1 to 1.5 minutes. Hope this helps!

    Help! Does there coconut oil go into the mix or is that to heat in the pan? My mix seems very dry so thinking it must go into the mixture? Thanks

      Neli | Delicious Meets Healthy

      Hi, the coconut oil doesn’t go into the pancake mix. Be careful to measure the coconut flour correctly because too much of it could absorb a lot of the liquid. With 4 eggs & 2 bananas, the mixture should not be dry.

    These are awesome. Has anyone tried an egg substitute or some type of alternative to eliminate the eggs all together??

    These were delicious. They were pretty fluffy without beating the egg whites separately, so think I’ll try that another time when I have more time…they will be heavenly! Thanks so much for the recipe!

    I tried this recipe this morning and turned out excellent. I also added some cinnamon, frozen blueberries and crushed walnuts to the batter. I was a bit suspicious if the thick batter would cook properly, but it cooked up nicely without burning (exterior browned like regular pancakes and flipped easily – only real difference is the batter wasn’t bubbling as a sign to flip). I used a cast iron skillet and split the coconut oil up so that I re-oiled the pan before each batch (3 total).

    For “syrup” I just heated some frozen cherries, strawberries, and blueberries in a saucepan. It wasn’t quite as good as proper syrup, but did the trick without the concentrated sugar.

    These are delicious! I didn’t have any coconut flour so I used 1/4 of all plant protein powder and they turned out great. I did separate the egg whites and beat them separately. I couldn’t believe how light and fluffy they were, although they were pretty delicate and wanted to fall apart. Next time I think I would add in some starch or binder to hold them together a bit more.

    Hi there, I would like to try these today but I don’t have Coconut flower at this moment. Just almond flour and almond meal. What can I use to subtitude the coconut flour? Thanks.

    You can’t beat pancakes for breakfast. These are a great option for people following a paleo diet.
