  • Pancakes? Why not.

    2 ripe bananas
    3 eggs

    Blend till mixed.

    Add 4 tablespoons unsweetened dessicated coconut, blend again till thick and batter like.

    Coconut oil in pan, low heat, off you go. Makes about 4 decent sized ones.

    Ruddy delicious.
    Do what you love and do it often. If you don't like something, change it. if you don't like your job, quit. If you don't have enough time, stop watching tv. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop, they will be waiting for you when you start doing the things you love. Stop over analyzing, life is simple. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Some opportunities only come once, seize them.

    Simple idea. I'll try this one (without the coconut, which I'm not a big fan of).

    I do similar with 1 egg per 1 oz of cream cheese (mascarpone) which makes two 6" crepes or maybe three drop scones (which is what folks that side of the Atlantic seem to call pancakes).

      I made some pancakes with buckwheat the other day. Tasted just like those made out of wheat flour.

        I made these with almond butter instead of banana

          I made these the other day: Buckwheat Banana Pancakes (Gluten-free, Sugar-free)

          Sort of a combo buckwheat/banana. They turned out really well (if I do say so myself...).

            100% buckwheat flour, or buckwheat pancake mix, which is mostly wheat flour? I make pancakes with pure buckwheat flour and I can tell you they do not taste like wheat flour ones at all.

              The pancake recipe from the Food Lovers' blog is pretty awesome. I skipped the stevia and they were still delicious. I haven't made the topping they suggest--just used butter and a little bit of organic amber maple syrup.

                My kids hated the banana ones. I thought they were decent. We've tried a few different recipes and my fave is this:
                1 cup almond flour
                3 eggs
                1/2 tsp vanilla
                1-2 tsp cinnamon (I never really measure this part)

                Blend it up, cook it on the griddle. The kids love it with cinnamon honey butter (coconut oil, butter, about a tbsp raw honey and cinnamon melted together and shaken well). We don't have them that often, but when we do, we down a triple batch between the 6 of us.

                  Agreed. The taste of buckwheat is strikingly different than wheat flour. I made rice and tapioca flour brownies and added a lousy 1/2 cup of buckwheat flour to the whole 3 cup mix to add some "body" to it. Wow, that's the last time I did that. Totally off-putting.

                    Why not use rice, tapioca, potato or coconut flour? They'd all be a much better choice than cooking with almond flour. It's incredibly calorically dense, and the primary fat you're giving your kids is oxidized omega 6 outside of the MUFA content. Heating nuts is a no-no. Grinding them up, then frying them or baking them at high temperatures? That's a double no. I think I'd rather stick with all purpose flour than that...

                      Are buckwheat and rice flours allowed? I assumed they were grains and, as such, not allowed.

                        If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck ...

                        You are right to follow your instincts, however, white rice is pretty inert and a good carb source. Buckwheat is a pseudo-grain, not a grain at all, but can be ground down to flour. They're not paleo in the strict sense, but with the scientific side of paleo methodology applied can be useful.

                          It was a bag of buckwheat flour from the health food shop. It wasn't a pancake mix. I haven't examined the ingredients but I doubt there is any wheat. I'll have a look when I get home.

                          Possibly my definition of tasting "just like wheat" is different from yours. A big part of that definition is whether they pass muster with two small children, the older of whom has very fixed ideas about pancake desirability, but probably does not have subtle enough tastes to tell the difference. The leftovers I ate tasted fine, like pancakes. I am not a big pancake eater myself, being more of a meat man.

                            Huh. Thanks for the info! I'll have to try some of the others.

                              I "experimented" today with both a paleo pumpkin recipe and a banana recipe. Both tasted decent but for the life of me, I couldn't flip the darn things without totally destroying them... what DID work though, were little muffin tins - we have a ton of muffin primal friendly pancakes in the freezer now. And there I was thinking I could chuck the muffin tins - I might actually use the stupid things now!

                              350 degrees, 20 minutes. It's a beautiful thing.
