Breakfast for dinner- a favorite in my house. Tonight I decided to try something different, a coconut flour pancake.
If you all have been following our blog you’ll know that hollowing a recipe just isn’t my fortes. Maybe I should have done so this evening. Coconut flour pancakes were an edible yet disastrous dish, not quite pancakes. My daughter said, “mom, maybe try not to just eyeball ingredients next time. Recipes have measurements for a reason.” Nothing like being put in your place by a ten year old.
My pancake was more of a cornbread texture. I used too much coconut flour, but it tasted fine. Honey makes everything better! The bottom also burned a little bit (ok a lot!) But the burnt fell away with no problem. the biggest problem was the pancake mixture was do thick. No matter what I added it became thick and gloppy. And kept growing! I gave up and spooned the thick mixture into a 12″ stovetop pan and cooked on a burner with the lid on. I ended up using two eggs, about a cup of coconut flour, a pinch of baking powder, a pinch of salt, a half cup to a cup of almond milk, some pumpkin pie spice (I love how it makes everything taste so homey,) and some honey. If you want a real coconut flour pancake recipe, I would suggest googling the term or seeking advice from Urban Paleo Chef or PaleOMG. I am of no help here today.
Coconut flour pancake with honey, eggs, and of course, Bacon, nature’s candy. Happy tummies all around in my house tonight, even though a Thor of our dinner was a semi-fail.

Note burnt bottom, but edible and tasty nonetheless!
