Unless you’re an alien, you love pancakes. EVERYONE loves pancakes. Not all pancakes are made equally, but that does not mean you can’t re-create an amazing, healthy alternative! In my honest opinion, these paleo pancakes taste better than regular ones. I constantly try to modify recipes until I make ’em JUST RIGHT. Don’t worry – if I figure out any secret, I’ll be sure to send the update your way. I got this recipe from Lexi’s Clean Kitchen: http://lexiscleankitchen.com/ and I highly recommend checking out her website for healthy recipes, because so far they’ve all been amazing! I posted her recipe here for you to try!
- 1/2 cup of blanched almond flour (I use Bob’s Red Mill)
- 1/2 cup of tapioca flour (Also Bob’s Red Mill)
- 2 cage-free/organic eggs
- 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce*
- 1 tsp of baking powder
- 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
- Add-ins of choice**
- Grass-fed butter or coconut oil/coconut spray for grillin’
- Combine almond flour, tapioca flour, and baking powder with a dash of salt in a bowl
- Add in the eggs, applesauce, and vanilla extract
- Heat up some grass-fed butter (I use Kerrygold) or coconut oil in the skillet over medium heat (coconut oil spray/olive oil spray is okay, too)
- Pour pancake batter in (based on your preferred pancake size)
- Let pancake cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side or until golden brown edges
- Transfer to a plate, add preferred toppings***
*Some people ask me how to know if applesauce or any food product is “unsweetened”. If a product doesn’t say “unsweetened”, you can just check the list of ingredients on the nutrition label. If you do not see “sugar” of any form, “juice” of any form. A lot of weird words that end in “ose” tend to be sugars, they include dextrose, fructose, glucose, maltose, saccharose, and sucrose. You can always Google an ingredient to be sure! Some natural sugars are always used to add extra sweetness, like honey, coconut sugar, maple syrup, and even the fruit juices I mentioned earlier. This still means that it is sweetened. The ingredient list will usually be very short, and hopefully one item long, if there are no additives.
**The add-ins I like to throw into my pancakes are Enjoy Life chocolate chips, blueberries, banana, unsweetened coconut
***My preferred toppings are usually more chocolate chips, more berries, more banana, pure maple syrup, & almond butter!
I hope you all enjoy your breakfast! ❤
