Chocolate Chip Coconut Flour Pancakes

I have to say, cooking pancakes to me is like cooking omelets. I just can’t get the cooking part right. I’m good at the batter, cause these came out delicious, but cooking them, I don’t know, not so much. They always look kinda burnty on the out side. Any suggestions? I’m probably impatient. That’s the story of my life. I feel like Verca Salt ”I want it now!” But, my guess is I have to cook them at a lower temp for a bit longer. In other words, slower? Well, at any rate, they didn’t taste burnty, so…..enjoy! Oh, and always top your pancakes with a chocolate covered piece of fruit!

And, bonus! These are made with coconut flour, so if you have any flour allergies or you are paleo then, this is a perfect treat for you!

Ingredients:

4 eggs, room temperature (whipped really well)
½ cup almond milk
1/2 cup coconut flour
1 tsp baking soda
A pinch of salt
1 tbsp of honey
2 tsp of vanilla extract
dark chocolate chips (a big ‘ol handful)

Mix eggs in a small bowl until frothy, then add milk, honey & vanilla extract. Mix well.

In a separate bowl sift together coconut flour, baking soda and salt.

Combine wet and dry ingredients. Throw in your chocolate chips. And, cook on stove top!

Paleo Protein Bars

Happy April! Happy Spring! It already looks like a beautiful blue sky kind of day and it’s not even 8 am yet!

Now, I’ve told you before that My Guy would prefer to stick to a Paleo diet, so, he’s always sending me online recipes that seem tasty. Things he’d like to try, and knowing I love to cook and bake, I can’t resist the challenge. I think he was expecting these to come out more like a ‘bar’. I think he was expecting something crunchy. Now, I’m not sure if it was the way I cooked it, or, if it was the recipe itself, but, for me these came out a bit cakey. I was actually thrilled with the end result. As, anything that tastes a bit ‘CAKEY’ works for me! I added an apple to the recipe for a bit more sweetness. In my opinion these are a scrumptious breakfast option. So, make them up, let me know if they come out a bit more ‘crunchy’ for you.

Here’s a recipe from a fabulous Paleo website, TGIpaleo

INGREDIENTS-

  • 2 Large Yams, shredded
  • 6 Eggs, beaten
  • 2 T Coconut Flour
  • 2 t Cinnamon
  • 1 t Vanilla
  • 1 t Salt
  • 1 apple, peeled and shredded (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS-

In a large bowl, combine the yams with the eggs, coconut flour, cinnamon, salt, and vanilla.  Press the mixture down into a greased 4.8 QT (15x10x2) baking dish.

Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes, or until the top is browned and there are no liquid bubbles.  Cool completely before cutting into bars.
