We get a lot of B.S. for labeling things like what we’ve got pictured above as ‘paleo’. All I can say is…I don’t want to type this lonnnnnng title out every single flippin’ time we have a recipe that’s grain/gluten free, dairy free and low carb. It’s just easier to type the word ‘paleo.’ It’s all encompassing–you know what we mean when we type it. Did they use almond flour in paleolithic times? No. But they also didn’t drizzle olive oil, drink coffee or chow down on the modern day bovine cow. We’re not re-enacting paleolithic times! Then there’s the other side of the coin, reproducing a ‘bad’ neolithic food into a ‘paleo’ food. Pancakes, pizza and pie exist and they’re not going anywhere anytime soon. So our whole view on this is, why not have something that really isn’t detrimental to your well-being. It’s a treat. Treat your treats like a treat–eat them every once in a while. We solemnly believe treats like these help you NOT de-rail from the Paleo track. So, with all due respect to our readers, if you don’t like it, don’t make it. We’re not going to stop posting things like this. The end.
Yield: 10-12 big ol’ fatties
- 1 ½ c almond flour
- ½ c coconut milk (we used the refrigerated carton kind)
- 1 T sugar
- 1 t baking soda
- 1 t baking powder
- 1 t vanilla
- 5 eggs
- F.O.C. (fat of choice), we used bacon fat—mmm, bacon flavored pancakes.
Blend all the ingredients in your blender. Set your cast iron pan or griddle on medium heat and melt some of your F.O.C. Ladle the batter into whatever size you’d like–coin, silver dollar, big ol’ fatties. Once tiny, little bubbles form around the edges of the pancake, it’s ready to flip.
