Pancakes, naturally!

It feels so good when you make something from scratch, and you know exactly what is in it,  all natural and unprocessed ingredients that taste great,  and the biggest compliment…they ask for seconds 🙂

Recently we were invited to a cottage with some friends and we got assigned breakfast duty. Ok, so on the menu is the usual bacon and eggs,  but what about the pancakes? Will my friends like my paleo/grain free pancakes? I mean they do have a little different texture. Maybe I should just make regular pancakes this time? ……. Forget about it!! Let’s do this MY way! I gathered all of my ingredients and took them to the cottage and made my pancakes my way.IMG_5917

  •  4 eggs
  • 6 tablespoons of full fat coconut milk
  • 1 ripe banana mashed
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 Tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • butter or ghee to fry in

Mash the banana with a fork in a bowl and add all the wet ingredients to it, and mix well.  Then mix the remaining dry in a separate bowl. (Not butter or ghee) Then combine it all.


Heat your pan with butter or ghee.  Add a spoonful or two of the batter to the pan and cook these babies up until the edges and top look done. Be patient! If you try to flip before they are done you will make a mess. I know, I have done that! 🙂


Depending on your situation-Serve them up with some fresh fruit, honey, butter and/or a touch of real maple syrup and feel good about your home made, grain free, gluten free, natural pancakes, because I know everyone else will!

These pancakes have been taste tested and approved by cottage friends and my three 6’3 grown boys who were all served these this Sunday morning.  I waited as they ate and each one said how good they were. Seriously, if they didn’t like them I was not going to “Robyn” approve this recipe. The super-duper awesome thing about these lovely treats is that you can eat them without getting that bloated, full, rock in your stomach feeling that so many get after eating regular pancakes. So this was a WINNER!

The whole recipe made this stack of 8 pancakes.
