Okay, so I know I’m not supposed to be eating pancakes buuuuut I figured since they were Paleo, it’s Sunday, and my blog is indeed called Pencils and Pancakes, that these would be an acceptable decision.
I’ll admit I was inspired by PaleOMG’s PB&J pancakes, but really my recipe looks nothing like hers. I just stole her idea. These don’t taste like regular pancakes in case you’re wondering. But if you’re trying to eat clean, on Paleo, or just want to try something different and don’t mind an eggy taste give them a shot!
Peanuts and peanut butter are NOT Paleo or allowed on Whole 30- I substituted Sunbutter- which is sunflower seeds turned into a butter. If you’ve never tried it you’re seriously missing out. Stop buying expensive nut butters and just make your own. Seriously, I spent $4 on organic sunflower seeds and made about two cups of delicious, sugar and sugar substitute free, ‘sunbutter’. Win-win. Make it now! Then makes these pancakes:
“PB &J” Paleo Pancakes
1 scant tbsp coconut flour
sprinkle of cinnamon
a couple drops of organic almond extract (for flavor, optional)
1/2 cup strawberries
2 tbsp black cherry balsamic vinegar (plain would work fine, but of course I’ll use my fancy flavored ones)
1 tbsp water
1 tbsp sunbutter
1. Heat your griddle to 350 degrees. Mash the banana with a fork until you get a smooth consistency.
2. Add two eggs and whisk together.
3. Add coconut flour and whisk more.
4. Add almond extract and cinnamon and mix to combine.
5. Meanwhile, place strawberries, water and vinegar in a small saucepan on the stove and bring to a boil.
6. Pour pancakes on the griddle (keep them under 4” in diameter) and cook until bubbly on one side. Flip and finish.
7. After syrup comes to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until thick, approx 4-5 minutes.
8. Top pancakes with sunbutter and strawberry syrup. Enjoy!
I ate mine with a side of crispy kale; random but good. If you try this recipe let me know! It’s definitely a great one! And go make sunbutter NOW.
