Mark Sisson, a rising paleo star with his book,  Primal Blueprint, posted a number of coconut recipes on his blog.  My partner made the coconut pancakes for a family brunch yesterday.

Coconut Pancakes


  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4c coconut flour
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • 1 pinch cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/4 c coconut milk (full fat)

Mix these ingredients and let them sit for five minutes. Oil or grease up your pan and heat over medium heat. Pour about a 1/4 cup of batter for each crepe, allowing each side to brown before flipping it.

The original recipe suggests that you “drizzle these with honey and berries, wrap up some bacon and eggs for a Primal breakfast burrito, or just eat them plain. These things are incredibly easy to make.”

I topped mine with bananas and some coco cacao 100.  Very satisfying.

I have a different coconut pancake recipe I’d like to try.  Maybe next weekend.
