3-Ingredient Paleo Pancakes


2015/05/27 by nikkiledford

It’s incredible that this recipe has not been immortalized on my blog yet. I mean, you can just type “paleo pancake” into any search engine and you will likely come across this EXACT recipe. These are definitely not original nor a culinary feat. BUT… they are perfect. They work every time. Which is important when you can get lost in a pinterest board of 100 different paleo pancakes recipes. I’ve been making these for myself and guests for the past 5 years and they are loved each time.

The recipe is really simple which means you can customize depending on your pantry and your kitchen.

For example:

At my family’s mountain cabin (with no electricity) I make these by hand, mashing the bananas and mixing the ingredients with a fork.

At home I blend in my blender for a smooth, round pancake every time.

If I have crunchy almond butter, creamy almond butter, peanut butter, sunflower seed butter, or any other number of nut butters, I will use it. My favorite is smooth raw almond butter though. From a nutritional perspective, I feel like using raw nuts before cooking results in less oxidative damage to the nut oils. If you use roasted nut butter, you are reheating a substance that has already been heated… not the best thing for the delicate nut oils (and ultimately your cells).

INGREDIENTS // one of my favorite activities is going out for coffee. For me, the sights, sounds, and smells of a coffee shop signal rest and I enter into a state of slowing down, more observing and less doing. Lately, I haven't been out to coffee too often because 1. It's expensive and 2. I don't tolerate dairy and I'm not much of a black coffee drinker so at most shops I'm limited to their dairy-free options. While it's nice to have nut milks available, I have discovered that all the other ingredients in these alternative drinks do NOT do my body any good. 
A solution to would be to bring my own homemade milk, but I don't always have some ready or I forget to put a bit in a small container (which then gives me the fun task of toting around a dirty jar in my car all day). These smaller bottles of almond milk are perfect for adding to my coffee when I'm out as most dairy-free milks come in huge cartons and are inconvenient for a coffee outing.  @popandbottle only uses basic, real food ingredients for their almond milk. They even sweeten it with a bit of date! 
I like to think that I always have a choice about what I put in my body. Sometimes I'll have to settle for black coffee, but if I plan a bit, I can still enjoy my coffee outings without ultimately compromising on what is best for me in the long run. SNACKS // kept it really simple today during meal prep. This is a tasty bowl of yams, banana, almond butter, and coconut flakes. FAST FOOD// Roasted all these veggies last night for a tasty quick lunch. Added a new find from Whole Foods. @goodlovinfoods lemon garlic dip. If you like bitchen sauce, you'll like this (!! bonus, they don't use any soy ingredients either !!) ROUTINE// Who else is meal prepping today? It's a small step that has big impact on your health... body and mind. One less stress to consider in a week full of choices and obstacles. #paleomealprep #sandiegoprivatechef #sandiegopaleo
