Paleo Lemon Poppyseed Pancakes


My recipes are grain free, refined sugar-free and most are dairy free. When I went grain free I thought I would never be able to eat pancakes ever again. This is actually an old recipe that I revamped to make it grain free. I have revamped this recipe several times first was dairy free, then gluten-free, then refined sugar free and now grain free. My family couldn’t even taste the difference. These are so yummy. I make them with lemon maple syrup. YUM, This makes approximately 4 servings.


1 cup cassava flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 Tablespoon poppy seeds

1/3 cup thick creamy coconut milk

2/3 cup almond milk

1/3 cup 2 teaspoons lemon juice

1 egg

3 teaspoons avocado oil

1/3 cup monk fruit sugar

zest of a lemon

oil to cook pancakes




Combine together cassava flour, baking powder, baking soda and poppy seeds. Combine sugar and lemon zest. Let sit. Combine some of the thick coconut milk with about 2 tablespoons of coconut water until you get a thick substance. Add lemon juice, egg, and almond milk to the coconut milk mixture and oil. Place the coconut mixture into a blender add 1/2 the cassava flour mixture. Blend and add the other half. Heat up a frying pan with 2 teaspoons or so of avocado oil. Pour out some batter to make three small pancakes. Flip when you see small holes being made in the pancake batter. Fry 2 – 3 minutes. Remove from frying pan and serve. Serves 4

Can be served with Lemon Maple Syrup* see my recipe, Strawberry Preserves, Apricot Preserves, or Roasted Strawberry Jam, or Blueberry Jam.
