Paleo Pancakes with Superfood Toppings

Print

I love to spend a slow morning with people and food that I love! Pancakes are really a staple food of childhood, and I’m so glad that I can give my children a healthy version of them! These paleo pancakes are gluten and dairy free, low carb, and when you top them with superfoods, you’ll start your day satisfied and supercharged!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Tapioca starch and cashew flour are great gluten free substitutes. The flax seeds provide good protein and fiber and the coconut oil is great for energy (and won't contribute to your spare tire).

Paleo Pancakes with Superfood Toppings

  • Prep Time: 30 minutes
  • Cook Time: 2-3 minutes per cake
  • Servings: 30

Ingredients

Dry Ingredients:
4 cups cashew flour (or almond)
1/2 cup tapioca starch (can use potato)
1/4 cup coconut sugar (use xylitol for low carb)
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon baking soda

Wet Ingredients:
4 large eggs (room temperature)
1 tablespoon coconut oil (melted)
2-4 cups unsweetened almond milk

Superfood Toppings:
1/2 teaspoon raw cacao nibs
2 tablespoons berries (frozen and thawed is fine)
1 teaspoon raw almond butter (or any other pure nut butter)
1/2 teaspoon ground flax seeds
1/2 teaspoon hemp hearts
1 teaspoon coconut cream
1/2 banana (sliced)

Instructions

  1. First, make sure your nut flour is ready. If you’re starting with whole nuts, grind them up in your food processor to a fine consistency.
  2. Heat your griddle to 350 degrees F.
  3. Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl, and the eggs and coconut oil in a small bowl.
  4. Pour the eggs and coconut oil into the dry ingredients, while mixing.
  5. At this point the mixture will be pretty dry and crumbly, which is fine. Slowly pour in 2 cups of almond milk, while mixing the batter. It works best in an electric stand mixer.
  6. Add enough almond milk to make your batter the right pancake consistency. It should be loose enough to pour into pancake shapes, but not watery. You can always add more after the first batch if they’re too thick.
  7. Spray your griddle with coconut oil, then scoop out the pancakes and pour about 1/3-1/2 cup per pancake.
  8. Let them set up and brown on one side, before flipping to brown the other side. It’s usually time to flip when bubbles form in the wet pancakes and spread all the way into the middle.
  9. Remove pancakes from the heat when they’re brown on both sides and cooked all the way through. Set out our superfood toppings, buffet style, and let people add whichever ones they prefer. Enjoy!

    I actually ran out of pancake mix plus many of my friends have been trying out the paleo diet so I thought I’d give this recipe a shot. They turned out to be so delicious I forgot about how healthy they were! Definitely giving this a thumbs up!
