    All of my paleo pancakes taste like crap.

    Primal Fuel
    I know a lot of you don't "bake" and just eat the whole foods, etc. But for those of you who do paleo baking with almond flour and coconut flour and all that, what recipe do you use for pancakes? I have tried a bunch of different ones and they all taste dry and odd and just not even worth it. I know they won't taste exactly the same I'm just looking for a recipe that you have found that you liked. I have tried one with coconut flour and one with just eggs and bananas. Thank you in advanced!

    You will like these pancakes

    Each packet makes 4 pancakes. 12 packets per box. No wheat & gluten free. DELICIOUS!

    Sorry, I had the same result as you. We never managed to get good non-wheat baking going in our house.

    (we do still have egg and banana muffins though, as a vestigial pancake breakfast)
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    This one has gelatin in it, so I tried it. I thought it turned out pretty well, and I'll use it again when I have an urge for pancakes. I did have to add more coconut flour than the recipe called for, to make the batter feel like the right consistency.

    Edited to add this: The pictures on the site show some orange stuff on top of the pancakes, which looks like grated orange zest (it doesn't say what it is). Anyway, I grated some orange zest on top of my pancakes and wow what a nifty kick. Definitely worth doing.

    My diet? Very low carb to initially lose weight, then moderate carbs (the past 12 years) for effortless weight maintenance. For me, the "carb curve" works like a charm. Once a week or so, I eat only one meal during the day (at late evening), as sort of a mini-fast.

    I am too. I've hated pretty much every recipe using replacement flours, and loved every recipe that uses plantains.

    This is the place, Gluten-Free Recipes, where I found a wonderful and very easy flour mix to make myself.

    I haven't used it for the pancakes but I've made the cream scones for my daughter and they were VERY tender and tasty.

    I haven't liked any of the paleo pancakes I've tried, but I have been happy with the GF crepes I've made. I substitute half tapioca and half rice flour and they come out fine.

    Mash eggs and bananas 1 to 1, fry in pan. Adjust ratio to change consistency.
