Pancakes. Of all the recipes or foods that I attempt to paleo-ize, pancakes have been the most difficult for me. I’m not sure if it is the almond flour, or the coconut milk, but it has been quite tricky to make a good old non-processed pancake. I have attempted to make paleo pancakes maybe 11 times! I was about to give up, well actually, I did give up, but I was really in the mood for pancakes this weekend, so I decided to try one more time.
I’m glad that I did because these were great. This recipe is the first paleo pancake recipe that actually has made me say, “these are good!”
I couldn’t resist cooking these with raspberries. Ever since I tried the raspberry pancakes from Charlie’s Sandwich Shop in Boston (which are the absolute best pancakes that I’ve ever had in my life), I have happily been throwing raspberries on any sort of pancake that comes my way.
This recipe makes two medium-large pancakes and since they each take up a lot of room in the pan, I had to make them one at a time. I expected that these two pancakes would be a meal for me alone, but it actually was perfect for two because they are so filling. That is one of the perks of cooking with almond flour, and I was happy that one pancake was enough for me.
Weekend pancakes are the best! Enjoy
