paleo cinnamon blueberry pancakes

DSC_0888i recreated these cinnamon blueberry pancakes from a pancake recipe that my mom made for us growing up.  the cinnamon in the pancake makes it so warm on top of being an ultra soft + fluffy pancake, & the blueberries heat up while cooking and are bursting by the time you eat the pancakes!!

whenever i eat a pancake, it feels like such a treat-type breakfast.  with this and my other pancake recipe, i only used ingredients that were absolutely necessary for the texture or flavor, nothing extra that just takes up space + calories!! i am so excited to be sharing these FLUFFY, MELTY, dreamy, warm, perfect + PALEO cinnamon blueberry pancakes!!

the flour i used is a combination of flours that make a great ‘paleo flour’ substitute, not making any baked good too grainy or dense, allowing it to rise properly and be fluffy + light! the flour is a combination of almond flour, tapioca or arrowroot starch/flour, and coconut flour;  in a ratio of 3:2:1, respectively — 3 parts almond flour, 2 parts tapioca or arrowroot, 1 part coconut flour, these flours are sifted together & mixed, settling to be my ‘paleo flour’!  i make 2 cups of ‘paleo flour’ by sifting together 1 cup almond flour + 2/3 cup tapioca or arrowroot + 1/3 cup coconut flour.  i store that combination in a sealed container for future use, & use it in recipes like these pancakes!  for this recipe, i used 1 cup of the paleo flour mixture.

to the flour, i mixed the baking soda, salt, cinnamon + nutmeg.  the cinnamon + nutmeg add a super subtle warm flavor that makes these fluffy pancakes melt in ya mouth.

for the wet ingredient mixture, i simply used a fork to whisk together the eggs, nut milk, coconut oil, vanilla, maple syrup, + lemon zest.  the lemon zest is hardly noticeable but adds a bright bite to the flavor to complement the blueberries!!

once the wet are combined + the dry are combined, i incorporate the dry mixture into the wet, then lastly, add the blueberries before rounding onto the skillet [oil the skillet w/ coconut oil or other oil/spray].

use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to get equally-sized pancakes on the skillet.  once you drop the pancakes [i did about 4 at a time], let them cook on the first side for ~ 2-3 minutes before flipping.  if you lift a side with a spatula and see the color turning golden brown, you’ll be good to flip!! cook until cooked through, about another ~2-3 minutes.  once they are done, layer them up and serve them up!!

top them with syrup + sprinkled cinnamon 🙂 pancakes just make sense on the weekends for me, & if you are enjoying these on a Saturday or Sunday, happy weekend!! no matter what day of the week, hope you enjoy as much as i did!!
