Chocolate Coffee Paleo Pancakes (don’t worry, they’re grain-free!)

July 29, 2011

Have I ever mentioned I have a sweet tooth? Just a tiny one. One that sometimes consumes my every waking thought. Is that normal?

I’ve noticed that when I eat a predominately Paleo diet I don’t crave quite as many sweets and sugars. Probably because I’m actually filling my body with fats and proteins, and staying away from the starchier carbohydrates. I’m more satisfied. For me, it works.

Even though I’m not craving as many sweets as often, I’m still a victim of good, clean dessert-y meals. Like breakfast. Paleo breakfast. Pancake breakfasts!

I think you should add a little Chocolate Coffee Paleo Pancake to your life, too.

Adapted from a truly Health-Bent Paleo Pancake recipe.


Happy Friday!

Anything exciting planned for this weekend?

Chocolate? Coffee? Pancakes?

Is there a wet ingredient missing, maybe? I made these just now and they are super crumbly, and I even added some almond milk to try to solve the dryness issue. There is no way one can (even with the almond milk) “ladle” this batter into a pan.
Any advice?

I had the same problem as sarah with the thickness. Ive tried to alter but havent worked yet.

Perfect for “fat tuesday/Pancake day” thanks for sharing!

I made these and the batter was very dry and crumbly. Did you form them into pancake shape and then cook or am I missing something?

Holy crap, these look incredible!! I know what I’m making next Pancake Sunday…if I can wait that long!! They look so thick and fluffy! You’d never even guess that they’re grain free!

That’s so interesting about Paleo helping with cravings. It can be hard for me to know whether my macronutrient balance or absolute number of calories is having the effect, because I so often slide back into ‘restriction,’ but it’s definitely true that my craving for chocolate has disappeared since I started eating more carbs and quit fearing them! Still, ‘whole’ carbs and good stuff, so maybe it’s a similar mechanism.

Ooh these sound great! I’ve tried the method of 2 eggs mixed with a banana and some protein powder and those came out pretty well. I also baked a chicken breast tonight coated in coconut flour and it was incredible!

i think i’m the only one on the planet that doesn’t like pancakes (even though they do look amazing). i notice that my sweet tooth diminishes when i eat more protein & keep my foods super simple. if my breakfast is steamed broccoli, plain greek yogurt, egg whites & a protein muffin (unsweetened) it sets me up for a day of clean eating.
i do, however, indulge my sweet tooth at night! 🙂

what will you be making THIS weekend?


The Teenage Taste July 29, 2011 at 1:18 PM

These look delicious and super decadent. Who says Paleo food has to be boring? Not Lori! 😉


Alisa Fleming July 29, 2011 at 9:20 AM

Why is breakfast totally a dessert meal? I always crave sweets, so bad! Those look great as usual Lori!

Kristina @ spabettie July 29, 2011 at 7:25 AM

I love coffee in breads – I AM going to have these this weekend! I love the ingredient list.


Katie July 29, 2011 at 7:13 AM

Silly girl. Coffee is never optional for me. 😀


Kat July 29, 2011 at 6:33 AM

Im so making these!! Like RIGHT now! These look amazing! Thanks for sharing 🙂


Sarah July 29, 2011 at 6:30 AM

Well I’m making your chocolate chip cookie bars this weekend, and I’m excited for that! That’s what got me following you and I have to say I’m loving all the grain-free recipes.


Katie July 29, 2011 at 5:44 AM

Yahoooo! Those look so dang good! I am going to try them, but probably add some ground flax + water in place of one of the eggs.


Amber Shea @Almost Vegan July 29, 2011 at 5:40 AM

AAH! These look so good! And only coconut flour, wow. That is AWESOME.


Kelly July 29, 2011 at 5:34 AM

I feel like I have died and gone to breakfast heaven!


Jess@Healthy Exposures July 29, 2011 at 3:55 AM

I looove chocolate-coffee anything…but have yet to have it in pancake form. You know what’s going to happen now 😉 These look great! Sometimes I have bad luck with all coconut flour in pancakes (not cooking through) but these don’t look that way at all!


lindsay July 29, 2011 at 3:45 AM

this when i want to reach through the computer and eat it! I love coconut flour pancakes! well done Lori. As usual.
