    Question about coconut flour pancakes

    Primal Fuel
    I made these paleo coconut flour pancakes for the second time: http://www.cheeseslave.com/2008/10/1...lour-pancakes/

    They're pretty good, but I think they are slightly on the dry side and definitely need a "maple syrup-like" topping. Paleo maple syrup? Any suggestions? I saw some sugar-free maple syrup in the store but it was made with sucrolose, which I'm not convinced is 100% safe.

    Hmm... a couple of ideas. One is to add bananas, applesauce or yogurt (if you do dairy) to moisten up the batter. You could also add blueberries which would add moisture and mouthfeel when you eat them. What about drenching them in a coconut cream type of sauce?

    Or, alternatively, count pure maple syrup in your 20% and ENJOY!!!

    I count 100% real maple syrup as Paleo. I just watch my carb count on pancake day.

    Regarding the pancakes, these are the best I've ever had. I use equal parts Almond meal and ground pecans though - way better!

    I melt butter and add a bit of maple syrup and dip my coconut pancakes in that. Since my sweet tooth is so reduced it doesn't take much.

    I cannot eat things made with A LOT of coconut flour either, like cookies or muffins. Just leaves me feeling bleh. But when I make pancakes I only use about 2 teaspoons of coconut flour to two eggs, and that seems to be okay with my stomach. I also only make these very rarely, like once or twice a month.

    I thin the batter with a bit of coconut milk until it is the consistency of wheat-type pancake batter, and let the batter sit for 5 minutes for the coconut flour to soak up the liquid. To serve, I heat blueberries and pour the warm blueberries and exuded liquid over the pancakes. No extra sweetener needed.
