Chocolate Coffee Paleo Pancakes (don’t worry, they’re grain-free!)
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.
Chocolate Coffee Paleo Pancakes
[grain free, gluten free, dairy free. make 4 large pancakes]
- 1/2 cup coconut flour (or finely ground shredded coconut)
- 2 tbsp pumpkin puree
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 tbsp instant coffee granules (decaf for me! optional for you.)
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- Stevia, optional
Mix all of the ingredients in a large bowl. Heat a griddle on medium heat for a few minutes to preheat the pan. Grease the griddle then ladle the batter onto the heated pan. Heat until small bubbles form around the edges of the pancake, flip. Serve with a drizzle of tahini, almond butter, honey, maple syrup, whatever your little sweet (craving) heart desires.
Anything exciting planned for this weekend?

I’m sorry these weren’t good, even with a half a cup of almond milk, too grainy.
[…] 32. Chocolate Coffee Paleo Pancakes There are so many ways to gussy up a pancake, but coffee has got to be one of the more logical choices out there. It’s a morning staple for many, and here you’ll be using instant coffee granules mixed right into the pancake batter. You can opt for decaf if you’re not doing caffeine, and you can also just take the coffee out if you just want some delicious chocolate pancakes. No matter how you play this you’re going to get a great deal of flavor to start your day off the right way. […]
I too has the same dry issue…. I added coconut milk. Worked well!!
Ok I’m making these tomorrow, can someone tell me how much almond or coconut milk you added to make these well? Thanks.
