So regardless of whether or not this is fully "paleo", I wanted to post it here for everyone incase you are just itchin to have panckaes and don't want the gluten/carbs to go along with it.
Admittedly, this recipe was kind of 'stolen' from a recent post by Chris Masterjohn (slightly modified), but since I have had excellent results, I really feel that I would be doing a great injustice by not sharing my experience.
Ingredients: makes 5-6 four inch pancakes
3 tbsp heavy cream (or any milky product)
2 tsp pure vanilla
1/8 tsp pure stevia powder (or sweetener of choice to replace 2 tsp sugar)
1/8 tsp baking powder
3 tbsp sifted coconut flour
3 tbsp ghee (coconut oil or butter will work)
a pinch of cinnamon
fresh fruits: blueberries/strawberries/bananas
Mix eggs, ghee, vanilla, cream, stevia, cinnamon in a mixing bowl. Mix coconut flour and baking powder separately, then add to the main mix and stir everything together. Add ghee or coconut oil to skillet over medium heat. Pour 4 inch dollops of batter into pan and make sure the batter is flattened out a bit. If you will add fruit, add it now and push it into the batter. Cook on each side for about 5 minutes or until center is not soggy. Note that the ghee/coconut oil in the pan is what helps them get golden and crispy. Letting the pancakes sit in a dry pan doesn't seem to work quite as well.
Here are some pics I snapped for you. Don't freak about the fruit! I have made them without fruit and they taste awesome that way as well. But this is only 3 strawberries, 1 small banana, and a handful of blueberries spread across the entire batch. And of course, adding a couple spoons of pasture butter and a wee drizzle of pure maple syrup helps out a bit.
In the pan - fruit up
In the pan - flipped once
On the plate - with pasture butter

these look great! i have "pancakes" once a month or so with the kiddos, but have yet to find a recipe i really like. these look nice and crispy around the edges like "real" pancakes. ill put this on the list for my next go.
i did make a paleo dutch baby oven pancake once that was really good! LOTS of butter in the cast iron pan, then mixed 4 eggs, 1/4c coconut flour, vanilla, a small pinch of baking powder, cinnamon and about 1/4c coconut milk (or heavy cream). pour in a hot cast iron skillet with about 6tbs butter melted in it and put in a 425 oven for about ten minutes. it puffs up and browns nicely, and is awesome with blueberries and a smakerel of maple syrup. and, more butter.
i dont do the candy cigarette thing too often, but its nice to have a few fun recipes under ones belt! thanks!
