A Light and Fluffy Paleo Pancake

I will admit that I have tried pretty much every paleo pancake recipe out there. I have even tried my hand at creating my own. None of them were successful. Almond flour ones were dense and fell apart. The coconut flour ones were spongy or eggy. Very yucky!! This recipe was yummy and light and fluffy. Something I have learned about paleo pancakes is that due to the lack of gluten (glue) they must be made smaller. Large pancakes do not hold together well. I made these about 3-4 inch in diameter and they held together perfectly. This is a simple plain pancake recipe, feel free to jazz it up any way you want. Replace some water with lemon juice and add blueberries! Yum! Add so shredded apple and cinnamon. Or so bananas and nuts. The list of possibilities goes on and on. Hope you enjoy this recipe. It will now be a staple in our house.

Fluffy and Light Paleo Pancakes

8 eggs
2 tbsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp honey or maple syrup
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup water
1 1/2 cup almond flour
1/4 cup coconut flour, sifted
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp baking soda

In large bowl combine eggs, vanilla, honey, coconut milk and water. Mix until frothy. Add remaining ingredients and mix until just combined. Don't over mix! Heat a griddle to about 300 degrees or until water just starts to sizzle when drizzled. Grease griddle with fat of choice (I like ghee). Add pancake batter and allow the pancakes to cook until bubbles rise to the top. Flip and cook until golden brown. Serve and enjoy!

  1. How many pancakes does this make, or about how many people does it feed? Thanks.

  2. It really depends on the size of the pancakes. I find it makes breakfast for 2 adults and 2 children for 2 days. I love leftovers so I always cook lots. I haven't made enough yet to try it, but I am planning on making some to freeze for those lazy mornings.

  3. Seriously...Beyond Amazing!! Thank you!!
    Follow the directions people, you will not be disappointed.

  4. Thank you! These are a household favorite for us. I will make huge batches and freeze them just so I have a stash for when the kids want them.

  5. Absolutely perfect. Stayed together and didn't take long to cook. PLUS ...I added cinnamon to mine and they LEGIT tasted like a light version of apple cider doughnuts. Ugh killed me hahaha. Thank you for this! I haven't found a paleo pancake recipe that actually worked until now!! :)

  6. Glad you liked the pancakes Brittany! Cinnamon sounds like a really yummy addition!

  7. I tried the recipe today. Mine turned out more like crepes than pancakes. Not fluffy at all....what did I do wrong? I have not tasted them yet I made them ahead for tomorrow morning.

  8. Without knowing exactly what you did, my guesses would be that you didn't fill the measuring cups full enough with the flours (both almond and coconut) or that the batter got over mixed. It may also be a combination of both. Hope this helps!

  9. Hi I made them this morning and although the batter looked very thin,I thought it mite of been because I halved the recipe .they turned out so yummy and fluffy just like you said .And yes they are by far the nicest paleo pancakes Iv ever tried .so thank you very much .what other recipes do you have that you would like to share.
