Can You Really Make Tasty Wheat-Free Pancakes?

For the past 5 months I have been experimenting with a Paleo style of eating. The Paleo eating plan is based on whole foods such as vegetables, fruit, meat, nuts and seeds. What makes the “Paleo” style of eating is that grains, dairy and sugar are to be avoided. I’m not going to dive into the research behind why these foods might not be the best for your health but I highly recommend reading “The Paleo Solution,” by Robb Wolf or “The Primal Blue Print,” by Mark Sisson.

As many of you might know, I LOVE pancakes but they don’t love me back. I’ve noticed that after I eat pancakes made with wheat flour, I feel a bit bloated and spacey. For some us, wheat can be difficult to digest due to the gluten and can cause our blood sugar to spike because it gets converted into sugar so quickly by our body. Most flours have been refined to a point where there are very little nutrients or fibre left in it.

The very first gluten-free pancake recipe I tried was from Sarah Fragoso’s cookbook, “Everyday Paleo”. They are made with almond meal which you can buy at Superstore or you can make it yourself by grinding almonds into powder in your food processor. These pancakes are a bit heavier then conventional ones but they are bursting with flavour. The recipe below was inspired by Sarah Fragoso’s Almond-Meal Blueberry Pancakes. If you are interested in paleo recipes or you are just trying to eat less wheat, I would I highly recommend that you pick up a copy of “Everyday Paleo” by Sarah Fragoso.
