Paleo Coconut Pancakes

Rated as 2.8 out of 5 Stars

"I love breakfast. But when you're going gluten-free, wheat-free, or paleo, there aren't a lot of options. This recipe rocks when you need pancakes to save you from a blah breakfast morning. Yes, you can need pancakes. Great with syrup or fruit sauce. Let them cool and spread with cashew butter, sunflower butter, or even preserves for tea!"

  1. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl.
  2. Beat egg yolks and butter together in a bowl until smooth; add coconut milk and vanilla extract and beat until smooth. Stir milk mixture into flour mixture until batter is evenly combined.
  3. Beat egg whites in a bowl until foamy, about 2 minutes; gently fold into batter.
  4. Heat coconut oil in a skillet over medium heat. Drop batter by large spoonfuls into the skillet and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

I did not care for the strong taste of baking soda. Not sure if it can be reduced and still have the right consistently

I followed directions exactly as given. I'm sorry to say but they were a huge disappointment.

The baking soda is overpowering but they're nice and fluffy so I will try it again with half the amount b. soda as suggested by another reviewer.

Kids gave it a big thumbs down!

these cooked well, but they tasted more coconutty than i prefer in a pancake, and since I'm not on a paleo diet i prefer the regular gluten free pancake mixes, but it was fun trying a new one.
