Super Easy Coconut Avocado Pancakes

I got a little “creative” in the kitchen this afternoon. I knew I wanted to make pancakes on the griddle to avoid turning on the stove or oven (it’s crazy hot this week!). So, I found a recipe for grain-free pancakes that sounded pretty tasty, but I didn’t have some of the necessary ingredients. This is where the creative bit comes in. What’s easier than avocado to mash up and substitute for apple sauce? OK, maybe a banana, but I wanted to get some green in our dinner and cut some of the sugar. Besides, avocado has 2.9 gr of protein, 708 mg of potassium, vit. B-6, vit. C and magnesium.

The recipe went over well with the kids and the husband. Win!!

 

Coconut Avocado Pancakes:

 

1/2 large avocado (mashed)

4 large eggs (beaten)

1 tblsp honey

1/2 cup coconut milk

1/2 cup coconut flour

1/4 tsp salt (I used himalayan pink salt)

1/2 tsp baking soda

 

Smash the avocado. Add beaten eggs and honey. Blend well. In large bowl whisk together flour, salt and baking soda. Combine wet and dry ingredients. I added the cocnut milk at the end because the batter was way too thick. You could add it to the wet ingredients earlier in the process, it doesn’t really matter. Spoon the batter on to griddle to make approximately 18 silver dollar pancakes. Flip when browned and firm on the bottom. Let other side brown and remove. Top with whatever you like. That’s it!

These pancakes are Paleo, gluten-free, fast and very nummy.

Give them a shot and let me know what you think.

  2. I’m not going to lie, I was a little hesitant to make these. I made two batches, one with white chocolate chips. They were both great (and reheated wonderfully). Couldn’t really taste the white chocolate in the one batch but you don’t need them anyway. Great alternative to banana and sweet potato pancakes. Easy to make, quick to fry up, and yummy to eat.
