Grain Free Cassava Pancakes

 These pancakes are made with cassava flour-a root veggie-based flour being used in more recipes as it adds a grain-like texture and is easier for most people’s digestive tract to break down.  It is also more allergy friendly than nut or grain based flours. I like to boost up the protein content with Vital Proteins collagen but you may try another protein powder of choice or omit this completely.  The flaxseed adds healthful fiber and stevia is utilized to keep this recipe free of all refined sugars.  Blueberries are one of the most antioxidant rich fruits around-they help us detox all of those bad guys out!


What you need:

  • 1 and 1/3 cups + 1 T dairy free milk (I used almond)
  • 1 tsp distilled white vinegar
  • 1 cup cassava flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 2 T ground flaxseed
  • optional: 2 scoops Vital Proteins Collagen protein
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1-2 droppers of liquid Stevia (may also use a few T of maple syrup here)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 T coconut oil-divided
  • Optional add ins: blueberries, sliced banana, chopped nuts, cacao nibs

How you do it:

  1. Mix in a large bowl: milk and vinegar and let sit
  2. Mix in a separate bowl: cassava flour, coconut flour, flaxseed, collagen protein, baking powder, baking soda, and sea salt
  3. Crack 2 eggs into the milk/vinegar mixture and add liquid stevia, vanilla extract
  4. Mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients and the whisk in 3 T of melted coconut oil
  5. Batter should be thick and creamy-may add extra milk to thin out
  6. Melt 1 T coconut oil in a large cast iron skillet over medium hat and drop batter onto hot skillet 
  7. Add blueberries (I also added chopped walnuts & sliced banana)
  8. Wait for batter to bubble and flip.  Serve hot drizzled with coconut butter and banana slices

GFG Enjoy! Signature
