I am patiently waiting for the arrival of my Honeyville Almond Meal so I can photograph and post my new pancake recipe. Their sale is still good till tomorrow, so if you haven't ordered yours yet there is still time. It is the best almond meal and you really can taste the difference!
My kids get tired of eating eggs every morning (and so do I for that matter), so this morning I made my go to coconut flour pancake recipe. I have made is so many times that I really don't measure anymore. Since I make these for the kids I am trying to pack in as much protein as possible so I load them with eggs.
Coconut Flour Pancakes (Revised)
3/4 cup coconut flour
10 medium/large eggs (I buy the ones from Natural Foods by the flat and they are smaller it seems)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon (optional)
1/2-1 tsp vanilla (optional)
coconut milk, almond milk etc. to desired thickness. Just remember it will thicken up a little when it sits.
I throw it all into a bowl, mix it with my electric hand mixer till smooth. Pour onto a greased griddle (I grease it well with coconut oil), and have the temp around 325 degrees (each griddle varies though, so try one pancake at a time to find the right temp for yours). When the middle starts to bubble a bit and the edges start to firm up, flip them over.
I like to serve them with unsweetened applesauce, some cooked frozen berries ( I just microwave them for a couple of minutes so they are warm and juicy, and about a tablespoon of real maple syrup. I personally skip the maple syrup when I eat Paleo pancakes, they really don't need it and neither do I! But it's fun for the kids.
The thing I really like about the new recipe I will be sharing is that they are so yummy and taste more like a traditional pancake in my opinion. My husband has had both and prefers the Almond Flour version, but honestly they are more of a treat as they only have 2 eggs in them and lot's of Almond Flour. I will continue to make the Coconut Flour ones for the kids on a weekly basis, and save the Almond Flour ones for special occasions. Enjoy!

Whole 9 has a great article out, that I think everyone should read! Especially those new to Paleo, it can be pretty overwhelming at times. I am used to cooking 3 meals a day now but there are still days when I don't want to cook and it's nice to have some shortcuts for those times when life get's busy. http://whole9life.com/2012/01/kitchen-tips-and-trick/
