Paleo Pancakes With a Twist!


I enjoy experimenting with food and combining ideas to create something new. We were driving home and talking about what to make for lunch, when my husband mentioned how delicious French Toast sounded.

We didn’t have any bread, but we had ingredients to make Paleo Pancakes, so I said, “What about French Toast Pancakes?”. And so, this recipe was born.

These got a little overdone, but they were delicious!

Ingredients:

     Pancakes

1/2 c Coconut Flour

1/2 c Flaxseed Meal

2 Very Ripe Bananas (at least mostly brown)

8 Eggs

1/2 tsp Sea Salt

2 tsp Baking Soda

4 tsp Vanilla Extract

2 TBSP Avocado Oil or cooking spray (or cooking oil of your choice)

     French Toast Coating

2 Eggs

1/4 c Almond Milk (or milk of your choice)

1 tsp Vanilla Extract

2 TBSP Avocado Oil or cooking spray (or cooking oil of your choice)

Cinnamon (optional)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Crack all eggs into a bowl. Peel the bananas and add to eggs. Mash mixture with a potato masher until well combined. Add all other ingredients (except oil) to the bowl. Continue using the masher until mixture is uniform and ready to pour.

Heat avocado oil in a fry pan or griddle on medium heat.

Using a 1/5 c measure scoop pancake mixture into pan. It will be thick, so spread it out in a thinner pancakes layer to help it cook faster. when the center is starting to bubble, carefully flip pancake over in pan (it will be fragile). This could take 3-5 minutes.

When pancake is done, place it on a pan in the oven in a single layer. Do this until the entire batch is complete.

While the pancakes are cooking, mix all (except for oil) the French Toast ingredients in a shallow bowl until well combined.

Add additional oil or cooking spray to the pan.

Dip each pancake in the batter and cook for 1-2 minutes on each side until the coating is cooked.

Sprinkle with cinnamon and eat as is, or serve with fresh fruit or maple syrup.

Tips:

*Make pancakes in advance, and pull out of fridge as needed to make French Toast.

**The pancakes are more dense than traditional pancakes. To get the coating to go inside, poke holes in the pancake with a fork as you dip it in the coating.

***If the pan gets too hot, turn the heat down so that they don’t burn before they are done cooking.
