Pretty Lights and Paleo Pancakes
I woke up this morning to a beautiful snow fall and was inspired to stay in and make breakfast. I blasted some Pretty Lights and got to work!Since I’ve been eating a lot of eggs, bacon, and fruit for breakfast lately, I had a craving for something different. Pancakes! Now that I’m eating 100% paleo, I had to get creative and cook something without all-purpose flour. I searched the internet and found this pretty awesome recipe that I slightly modified. These will keep you more satiated than regular pancakes because it contains more eggs and coconut flour (high in fiber and protein). Om nom nom.
For the pancakes, you will need:
Yields about 6 pancakes
– 4 eggs
– 1 cup coconut milk
– 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
– 1 tablespoon organic maple syrup
– 1/2 cup coconut flour
– 1 teaspoon baking soda
– 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
– 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
– coconut oil for frying
Beat the eggs with a stand alone mixer or hand held mixer on medium until frothy. Add coconut milk, vanilla extract, and maple syrup. In a separate bowl, whisk together the coconut flour, baking soda, sea salt, and cinnamon. Pour over wet ingredients and mix until ingredients are fully incorporated. Heat a pan on medium to high height and add a tablespoon of coconut oil. Once the oil melts, add a heaping teaspoon of the mixture on the pan. As soon as bubbles form around the edges of the pancake, turn over and cook for another 3-5 minutes. Serve with maple syrup or fruit!
These pancakes taste almost like the real thing! They’re super light and fluffy and surprisingly moist.
Enjoy the pancakes with a side of Pretty Lights.
