    All of my paleo pancakes taste like crap.

    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!

    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)

    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.

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

    Co-sign plantains. If I blend at high speed they end up thicker and fluffier than wheat pancakes.
    I add a bit of allspice, cardamom, and anise then dot one side with frozen berries during cooking.

    They're the closest I've had to real wheat pancakes in both taste and how they cook. I even like them better than wheat. I'm not sure why everyone likes the banana pancakes. They're not that great and they're a pain in the ass to cook.

    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.
