Grain Free Paleo Pancakes

Fluffy Paleo Pancakes are the best way to start your morning. My family are pancake fanatics. I haven’t been on the pancake wagon for quite some time though. I simply couldn’t start my day with carbs and feel good afterwards. Healthy proteins and fats are what I need to fuel me. If I start with carbs I get full and then crash fast. When I crash it is not a pretty sight.

When I finally realized that I needed to really scale back on grains and refined sugar, especially rice- I knew a paleo pancake would be the best way to go. I was hesitant at first about having pancakes for breakfast, but of course I have to taste every recipe I create. To my surprise I felt great after I ate them. When I enjoy paleo pancakes, I prefer some fresh fruit with them. Possibly a side of protein if I know I will need to get through the morning without eating again.

My lucky kids are the guinea pigs of my recipe creations. After creating something and giving it to them- their reaction is what tells me if I got it right, or if its back to the drawing board. After they took their first bite without even blinking, they took their second. They could not even tell the difference from the regular gluten free pancakes they have been eating for the last 5 years. Satisfaction!

Fluffy Paleo Pancakes

Pancakes on a plate

They have been eating paleo pancakes and waffles ever since. They simply don’t care because they taste amazing!

These Paleo Pancakes are made with the Grain Free All Purpose Flour Blend I created. They literally melt in your mouth and create perfectly textured pancakes. I simply could not be any happier with these paleo pancakes.

If you are grain free and paleo then you know all about grain free baking powder, but if you are new to this then you will need to buy or make your own. It is easy to make by simply mixing 3 TBSP. baking soda with 1 TBSP. cream of tartar. It can clump since there is no starch in it, so just be mindful of that. A post will be up in the near future for the recipe and some pictures.

So, the next time you’ve got a craving for a pancake, but want something healthy and satisfying- I’ve got you covered. Stayed tuned for a Devils Food Pancake and Waffle recipe in the near future.

    Well first off I love coconut milk….and the aroma of coconut oil. These sound perfect for the weekend brunch menu. I know my grandkids would love these the next time they are here for a sleepover. You can never go wrong with pancakes on the weekend.

      Hi Gloria. I love the taste and aroma as well. Your Grandkids will love these!

    I am allll for melt in my mouth pancakes! This would be my first time using ground flax in my pancake mix. My partner is excited to try these now too!

    1. livingfreelygf says:

      Hi Carmy! I use flax in all of my pancakes and it helps makes them extra fluffy, plus healthier! A win-win!

    I don’t make pancakes very often, because they leave me feelings so SLEEPY! These look so good though- I’ll have to try it with the grain free flour and see if that helps. And I bet the coconut milk makes it so creamy!

    1. livingfreelygf says:

      Yes, exactly! The coconut milk gives it a perfect consistency!

    If the kids eat it up without blinking, you know you have a good one! These pancakes look like a great way to start your day with no carb crash. And I like all the fruit you have with them too.

    1. livingfreelygf says:

      Thanks Annemarie! I love fresh berries with my pancakes, maybe a little shredded coconut too.

    I love pancakes, but really feel like I’m dragging around all day after a big breakfast of them. Will definitely give these a try. They look perfectly fluffy! Satisfying that weekend breakfast craving without being weighed down with all of the fat and carbs sounds like a win-win to me!

    1. livingfreelygf says:

      Yes, they really are a great way to please your craving without feeling yucky afterwards. Enjoy!

    I was nodding my head reading your description of how you have felt about pancakes for breakfast in the past and how you need proteins and healthy fats to keep you satisfied in the morning. I’m the same way and haven’t had pancakes in a long time because of it, but that might have to change with these yummy sounding pancakes!

    1. livingfreelygf says:

      I am glad I’m not alone!

    I have been craving pancakes for months now, and I *still* haven’t gotten around to making any! Either something comes up on a weekend morning, or my husband gets up just a bit earlier than I do and eats cereal… gah. This is a gorgeous stack and it’s really telling me that I need to get on my pancake making soon. I’m pretty sure I have all of these ingredients, too!

    1. livingfreelygf says:

      Hi Dana,
      I hope you please your craving soon and these are the perfect pancakes to do it without the guilt.

    Today was the day I decided that I was going to start doing something about my breakfast. It’s been so boring I don’t even feel like I’ve eaten anything. Luckily I find your recipe for a great tasting breakfast that is also paleo accepted. All I can say is thank you — I’ll switch out the berries with the season.

    1. livingfreelygf says:

      Hi Marisa,

      These will definitely bring more enjoyment to your breakfast routine. You can even add some apple slices, honey and cinnamon.

  10. Your recipe here and the other one on your site for the home made grain free baking powder are different. Which one is the correct one? Thank you, Annie

    1. livingfreelygf says:

      I checked and they were both the same. What difference do you see?

  11. I have eggs sensitivities, and I am so saddened that a lot of paleon baking recipes require heavy use of eggs and or/flax and flax and I am beginning to have a sensitivities for over using flax and nuts as a replacement. Any other suggestions on how to enjoy these without the eggs and flax

    1. livingfreelygf says:

      I have had really good success with Bobs Red Mill egg replacer. I would give that a try. I am sorry about your sensitivities, I know it is hard with paleo being so heavy on eggs.
