You have probably seen around the internet the 'miracle' recipe of a banana and some eggs that somehow turns out to be this amazing paleo pancake. I tried such recipe and all I ended up with was a banana omelet.
Not very tasty and not at all like a pancake! Ever the adventurer that I am I set out to improve on this concoction and actually make a pancake I would find palatable. I am happy to announce I have made great progress and I am ready to share for the first time here, Rachel's Delicious Paleo Pancakes!
Here's the lineup of breakfast all-stars:
2 TBS arrowroot powder
2 TBS tapioca starch
Pinch of salt
¼ tsp REAL vanilla (check ingredients!)
½ tsp baking soda
1 TBS melted coconut oil
You will also need:
Let's get cooking! Pre-heat the griddle to about 275°F. Put ALL ingredients into the food processor.
Turn it on and let it run until all ingredients are thoroughly combined. You may need to scrape the sides of the bowl and let it run again. The batter will be very thin.
Your griddle should now be nice and hot! You will know it is ready when little droplets of water will sizzle and dance when flicked onto the surface. Pour your batter until you get the desired diameter of pancake.
This is the tricky part. Normal pancakes will bubble when it is time to turn them over. These do not. The timing is about the same, but look for the edges to become a bit stiff. when you can easily slide the turner under them - time to flip!
WOO-HOO!! Pancakes! Let them cook for just a couple more minutes on the other side and you are ready to go! This recipe makes about 8 pancakes. It is perfect for 2.
Give them a try and tell me what you think in the comments below. I bet you will be as thrilled as I am that pancakes are back on the weekend menu!
