Cinnamon and Coconut Pancakes

I know Paleo pancakes are totally candy cigarettes but once in a while, I feel like making a stack. They’re definitely not the same as traditional pancakes (a bit denser and drier) but our resident carb-addict, Lil-O seems to like them just fine.

Here’s what I gathered to make 12 pancakes (3” in diameter):

  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons full fat coconut milk
  • ½ mashed ripe banana (about 2 tablespoons)
  • ½ teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1½ tablespoons of Bob’s Red Mill organic coconut flour
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 small pinch of salt
  • ghee or coconut oil (for frying)

Here’s how I made the pancakes:

I whisked the eggs, coconut milk, mashed banana, apple cider vinegar, and vanilla extract together until well combined.

Then, in a separate bowl, I mixed together the rest of the ingredients (except for the ghee)…

…before whisking together the dry and wet ingredients just before cooking.

I heated a tablespoon of ghee over medium heat in a small cast iron skillet and added a tablespoon of batter to the pan.

As soon as bubbles formed on the surface (about 1½ minutes)…

image

…I flipped the flapjack over and let it cook for another 30 seconds or so on the other side.

Repeat until done with the batter and enjoy!
