My Favorite Paleo Recipes:
Plantain Pancakes

evolution rPancakes were one of my favorite foods for breakfast before embracing a Primal Lifestyle. But, pancakes are made with wheat flour. There are coconut flour and almond flour recipes that avoid wheat flour, but they never had the taste and texture of real, chewy, soft pancakes. This recipe changed everything for me when it came to delicious pancakes – the Paleo way! Try them, and judge for yourself.
2 large green plantains (about 2 cups pureed)
4 free-range eggs
4 Teaspoons of vanilla (more or less based on taste)
3 Tablespoons of extra virgin coconut oil
1/4 Teaspoon of sea salt
1/2 Teaspoon of baking soda
Additional coconut oil for cooking
• Peel plantains. (It is easier to cut them lengthwise and then cut each section in half; then separate the peel from the meat of the plantain with your fingers.)
• Place plantain pieces into your food processor or powerful blender. (I favor Vitamix. Other good blenders are Ninja and Magic Bullet.)
• Add the rest of the ingredients to the food processor or blender and process until it forms a smooth batter (about 1-2 minutes).
• Heat 1 Tablespoon of coconut oil in frying pan over medium-high heat.  Pour the batter into the frying pan until your pancake is the desired size.
• Cook like a regular pancake. After 2-3 minutes, the top will form little bubbles just like a regular pancake. Flip it and cook the other side for another minute or so until done.
• Repeat until the batter runs out. Add a little coconut oil to the pan as needed.
• Top with butter, or honey, or grade B maple syrup, or whatever makes you happy!
