I just seen the commercial for all-you-can-eat pancakes. Mmm pancakes. So I've seen a couple of different recipes. Who has had the best paleo pancakes? Mandie made some with sun butter and applesauce. I didn't get any but she said they were good. I can't imagine the texture being anything like pancakes. Anyways, recipes?


  1. Made a variation on these last weekend:

    Not too bad. Topped with a little applesauce.

    This recipe seemed to involve the least amount of work, so I went for it. Oddly enough, I didn't mess up any. Will make again, A+

  2. This post made me laugh. Best quote, "Mandie made some with sun butter and applesauce. I didn't get any but she said they were good."

  3. This recipe was from Joey a while ago, they're a little difficult to get the consistency down, but delicious nonetheless.

    Quick Paleo Pancakes

    Time: 10 minutes

    • 2 eggs
    • 1/2 C unsweetened applesauce
    • 1/2 C nut butter (not peanut butter! - almond/macadamia nut butter works well)
    • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
    • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
    • coconut oil

    Mix all of the ingredients except the coconut oil in a bowl. Stir well, until you have a uniform batter. Next, use a bit of coconut oil to grease a non stick skillet. Spread some of the batter into the skillet to form a pancake, then cook over low/medium heat. Flip after 1 to 2 minutes, being careful not to burn them!

  4. I laughed out loud at that too, Jonny! Way to go Mandie - you eat 'em all!!

    Joey's pancake recipe is phenomenal. When I make them I use a mix of almond butter and macadamia nut butter (ratio of 2:1 almond to mac because of consistency and high amt of fat in the mac butter). Sooo good. I made them for my whole non-paleo family the the day after Christmas and they were floored. I always top with fresh peaches or fresh blueberries and a bit of organic maple syrup and they are TO DIE FOR.

    I actually don't like almond butter at all- but always have it in the fridge for this recipe alone. The consistency of these is exactly the same as pancakes.

  5. OR if you can find organic peach or blueberry preserves with no sugar added (I found these at the Southport Grocery Store - it contains just fruit and pectin) then you can use that to top them without maple syrup. Also delicious!

  6. Rudy, this is a very timely post. I was just thinking the other day that I feel like the only person who does NOT like paleo pancakes! The consistency is funny and both times that I've made them, they've turned out kinda dry. Maybe I need to give them another try.
    Kerry, thanks for the tip on the preserves...that might help.

  7. For those like myself who like Egg McMuffins, I came across this recipe the other day. I haven't tried it yet, but it looks solid. I think you could basically use the paleo pancake recipe and then put whatever you want (eggs, sausage, etc.) in between.

  8. I made some similar to the above recipe. Just a little more relative vanilla and cinnamon.

    1/4 C apple sauce
    1/4 C almond butter
    1/2 tsp vanilla extract
    1/2 tsp cinnamon

    Surprisingly good! Very close to normal pancake texture, too.
    I put pears on top.

  9. Jess, I too tried the Joey pancake recipe a while back and thought it was pretty gross. I used almond butter. But since so many people raved about it, I gave it another try but this time used cashew butter, threw in blueberries, and also added a quarter cup of flaxseed meal to try make the texture not so dense and rubbery. It was MUCH better and I would make it again.

    Amy, your recipe doesn't have any eggs and the pancake still held together? That's interesting. And you say the texture was like regular pancakes. I will definitely try that.

  10. With all the recipes, we need to put together a CrossFit Chicago Paleo cookbook. I think Erin O had a recipe book for the nutritional seminar, but I didn't get to go.

  12. Rudy, are you getting soft? Eat a Steak. I need to stop looking at these post about breakfast foods. I love everything breakfast/brunch! I pulled a few recipes off everyday paleo and I am going to give them a shot. I could never sub a thing like pancakes because it is a SIN.

  13. Nutella. A lot of nutella on pancakes. But nutella is the devil up there with cheese. Although I did eat a Sm container of sun butter over the past 2 days instead of the icecream & pancakes my better half has been wolfing ... It felt like a cheat until I saw how scrawny I am and how matt found my super-secret chocolate cheat hiding place and cleaned it out. It was kinda gross watching him down 2 snickers, 3 kitkats, and a reeses in minutes. Though I'm with the guys that sausage and steak toppings are great on paleo pancakes - savory and sweet!

  14. This isn't a pancake recipe, but it's breakfast related, so I thought I'd post it. It's for Paleo oatmeal:

    I haven't tried it yet, but when I do, I'll let you know how it is.

  15. it comes out more like a crepes actually. Me like pancakes.

  16. Oops! I did forget the one egg, JJ. Sorry!
    I was about to make them for dinner and remembered!

  17. I don't usually cook pancakes that's why I think I made it a little too fluffy and taste like marshmallow this morning. Got a couple of recipes after researching for a paleo pancakes. Might try one pancake recipe before I get my Food Safety Course. Thanks!
