Pumpkin Pancakes with Bacon and Pecans
Adding pumpkin to pancakes is a great way to flavor them up without adding anything that will slow you down or make you fat. These pancakes are also flavor enhanced with bacon, and have a bit of crunch thanks to the pecans so you’re getting a mouthful of savory bacon, nuttiness from the pecans, and the distinctive taste of pumpkin in each bite. Because they use coconut flour these come out light and fluffy, and taste great. If you didn’t know it was a Paleo recipe you might not even realize it as you’re eating them.
Coconut Flour Pancakes
Using coconut flour instead of all purpose flour is one way to turn ordinary pancakes into paleo friendly pancakes. This recipe shows you the basics when it comes to substituting flours to make the pancakes better for you. These come out looking and tasting just like the pancakes you remember before starting paleo, and the list of ingredients includes things like coconut oil, raw honey, coconut milk, and coconut flour, so as you can see they are really relying on coconuts to put this together. Since coconut doesn’t contain any grains or dairy, it’s a perfectly suitable food for Paleo, including all of its byproducts.
Paleo Spiced Pumpkin Pancakes
Here they’re using a combination of almond flour and coconut flour to get the right texture. Coconut flour produces light and airy pancakes, while almond flour makes them a little more dense and thick, so using both makes for a happy medium. Using nutmeg, cardamom, and cloves is a surefire way to get your taste buds going first thing in the morning, and the flavor of these will surely stick with you through the morning and into lunch. They get their sweetness from molasses, and their buttery flavor from ghee. With the right garnishment these look pretty enough to grace a magazine cover.
Apple Pie Pancakes
These pancakes harness the flavor of apple pie, and serve them up in a format that is easier to make first thing in the morning. These are covered and smothered in apples, as well as a nice serving of maple syrup, so she’s doing a good job of combining two food types into one mega-delicious creation. Stack these as high as you can for the best presentation, but remember to only eat until you feel full, as part of the Paleo way is listening to your body and it’s natural senses it has in place to tell you when it’s hungry and when it’s not.
Coconut Banana Pancakes and Lemony Butter
These pancakes combine two popular tastes, coconuts and bananas, into one pancake, and top the whole thing off with a lemon-infused butter. The coconut flavoring comes from coconut oil as well as real coconut that is mixed right into the batter. The banana of course comes from a banana, and the lemon butter uses ghee and lemon zest and juice for it’s flavor. This is an interesting mix of ingredients, and most likely not something you’ve tried in the world of pancakes. Paleo is all about broadening your palate and trying new things.
Carrot Cake Pancakes with “Cream Cheese” Frosting
Carrot cake lovers will want to take note of this pancake concoction. It is meant to taste like carrot cake, complete with a cream cheese frosting, without using any grains or dairy. The carrot flavor comes from – surprise! – carrots, and the way they made the cream cheese frosting without using any cream or cheese is pretty awesome. They borrowed a page from the vegan cookbook and used cashews to create the right texture. From there it was just a matter of getting the taste right using only Paleo ingredients. Success! Top it with some crushed pecans and eat it up.
Almond Protein Pancakes
These protein pancakes are made with plenty of eggs and nuts to provide you with a wholesome source of protein, and without weighing you down with unnecessary ingredients. In fact, there are only 4 ingredients used, so you can make these up whenever you want a hot breakfast that will keep you satiated until the lunch whistle blows. Eggs, almond flour, and coconut oil are the main ingredients, add a bit of water and your batter is all set for the griddle. Embrace simple recipes like these because Paleo involves cutting out all of the stuff you shouldn’t be eating, and only using the minimum number of ingredients to make food delicious.
Paleo Mocha Chip Pancakes with Espresso Syrup
Pile on the deliciousness with these pancakes that use a heaping portion of strong coffee to make sure that you not only get full, but get wired in as well. The coffee is used not only in the pancakes themselves, but also in the syrup, so you’ll be getting a double dose of caffeine to start your day without merely sitting and drinking a cup of coffee. The coffee goes really well with the chocolate, making this a treat to have when you need a wake up call, or any time you want your caffeine fix.
This is the pancake recipe to make when you don’t have a lot of ingredients on hand because it only uses two of them. Some pancake recipes say “just add water” which technically is two ingredients, the mix and the water, but this one is much more natural. It uses a banana and some eggs to make the batter, so these will definitely taste like banana pancakes. You can add to it if you want, consider dark chocolate chips as a great source of antioxidants, and third ingredient that can really make these special. We were skeptical at first, but give this a try and you’ll be a believer.
Paleo Macadamia Pancakes
Macadamia nuts are one of the featured nuts on the Paleo diet, so you don’t have to worry about eating them, or whether they’re good for you or not. The healthy fats they contain are something that the Paleo plan encourages, so you can indulge in them without feeling guilty. Here they’re using a coconut butter that already has the macadamia nuts in it, so you don’t have to buy them separately and wonder how to prepare them. This is a recipe that is purely Paleo, so no adjustments or substitutions need to be made, just make and enjoy.
Serving breakfast to morning company? This is a recipe that is sure to please, even if they’re not following Paleo. Everyone can enjoy this, and it makes such a nice presentation that they won’t even think it’s diet food of any sort. That’s a great thing about Paleo, you don’t have to eat food that others think is weird or odd or is obviously diet food because it’s just natural food that tastes good. These pancakes are smothered in chocolate and served up with fresh, tart raspberries so you get antioxidants galore without having to plug your nose while you swallow it.
Chocolate Chip Banana Pancake
There are chocolate chip pancakes, and there are banana pancakes, and each tastes great on their own. When you put the two together you’re onto something really great, and that’s what we have here. They have made sure to use unsweetened chocolate chips, and then used palm sugar to keep things Paleo and not introduce any refined sugar. The ordinary white sugar that comes in those big bags at the store has been processed so much it’s a crime to call it sugar or even food. Get back to basics by using unrefined sugars in all of your Paleo cooking.
Almond Butter & Banana Pancakes
Almond butter is sure to become your new best friend on Paleo. That’s because peanuts are a no-go, and almond butter makes a great substitution. Here they’re not substituting it for peanut butter, they’re just using it to make these pancakes taste great. Be sure to choose an organic almond butter to assure high quality. Coconut milk will make these come out light and fluffy and creamy, and there’s just a bit of cinnamon to help it all taste just right. You simply can’t go wrong with these if you’re a fan of nuts and bananas.
Apple Cider Pancakes
These pancakes only use a little bit of apple cider, but the distinctive taste of cider really rings through. You won’t have any concern over grains or wheat because it’s using almond flour as the base, and it gives these pancakes a nice thickness to them without taking away too much from their fluffiness. The end result is a pancake that you can cook up any time you happen to have some apple cider handy, and they’re even so good you might want to seek it out just to make these.
Chocolate Coffee Paleo Pancakes
There are so many ways to gussy up a pancake, but coffee has got to be one of the more logical choices out there. It’s a morning staple for many, and here you’ll be using instant coffee granules mixed right into the pancake batter. You can opt for decaf if you’re not doing caffeine, and you can also just take the coffee out if you just want some delicious chocolate pancakes. No matter how you play this you’re going to get a great deal of flavor to start your day off the right way.
