A Healthy Be Mine

Dark Chocolate Paleo Pancakes.

Ingredients 

  • 1 cup blanched almond flour  
  • 2/3 cup tapioca flour  
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder  
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda  
  • Generous pinch of salt  
  • 4 eggs  
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce  
  • 1/4 cup honey or pure maple syrup, plus more for serving  
  • 3 Tablespoons ghee or melted coconut oil, plus more for cooking  
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla  
  • 1/8 teaspoon liquid vanilla Stevia (optional)  
  • Fresh berries and whipped cream (or coconut cream), for serving  

Instructions 

  1. Whisk together the first five ingredients in a large mixing bowl. 
  1. In a separate, smaller bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients (except the berries and cream). Pour the wet ingredients into the dry mixture. Stir together gently, scraping down the sides, until no large dry pockets remain. It’s OK if there are a few small lumps — don’t over mix the batter. 
  1. Heat a nonstick skillet to medium-high heat. Brush some ghee on the surface of the skillet, and using a 1/4 measuring cup, drop dollops of batter onto the hot skillet. Turn the skillet down to medium heat. Cook the pancakes for 3-4 minutes on each side until they’re toasted and the centers are cooked through. Transfer to a large plate or platter and keep warm. 
  1. Serve with berries, whipped cream, and a drizzle of honey or maple syrup.
