New Year's Brunch featuring the perfect paleo pancake recipe
There is nothing better than New Year's Brunch. You wake up for a new year and with (usually) the need for a nice hearty brunch. I have experimented with several pancake recipes and recently found the perfect recipe which I have adapted a bit over time. The pancakes are perfectly fluffy, cook very fast and most important don't fall apart.
Perfect paleo pancake recipe
1 tsp olive oil
1 scoop Trader Joe's stevia extract (or 1 tsp honey)
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 tbsp coconut flour
1 ripe banana
optional: fresh blueberries
Mix the dry ingredients together. In a separate boil, whisk the eggs with the olive oil and vanilla. Crush the banana in the mixture. You can use a hand blender for a smoother texture. Add the flour mix little by little to the batter until there are no more lumps.
I use a tbsp scoop to portion out the batter in my pancake pan. About 1 1/2 tbsp per pancake make nice small round pancake that are easier to flip and cook fast, about 3 min per side. The fresh blueberries are a very nice touch.
To finish up the brunch, I made poached eggs, bacon and sauteed grapes in bacon fat (recipe below).
Great way to start a new year!
