I make these healthy paleo applesauce pancakes with coconut flour. They are tender and fluffy. And they have a wonderful apple cinnamon flavor.
I realize this is somewhat unconventional, but I never sweeten pancakes batter. Why? Because I find it unnecessary. I almost always serve pancakes, including these healthy paleo applesauce pancakes, with maple syrup or honey. However, you could add 2 tablespoons coconut sugar to the batter if you prefer.
What about toppings? Grass fed butter, coconut oil, maple syrup and honey all taste great on these healthy paleo applesauce pancakes. Apple butter is another tasty option.
If you happen to have leftovers, you can keep them in the fridge for 3-4 days. Gently reheat them in the microwave. These pancakes also freeze well.
And if you prefer almond flour, these almond flour pancakes are amazing. Super fluffy!
Paleo Applesauce Pancakes
- 4 large eggs
- 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 6 tablespoons coconut flour (42 grams)
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- Avocado oil spray for skillet
- Preheat oven to warm (150-170 degrees F). Line a baking sheet with parchment.
- In a large bowl, whisk the eggs. Add the applesauce, vanilla, salt and cinnamon. Whisk to incorporate.
- Add the coconut flour and baking soda. Batter will be thick.
- Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, about 3 minutes. Spray with cooking spray.
- Scoop the batter out of the bowl and into the warm skillet, using a 4-tablespoon scoop or a measuring cup. A large skillet should fit 3 pancakes. Gently flatten the top of the pancakes using a rubber spatula.
- Cook the pancakes until cooked through and browned, about 3 minutes per side. If the outside cooks too fast, lower heat to medium-low. Flip them gently, they are not as sturdy as wheat flour pancakes.
- Transfer the cooked pancakes to the prepared baking sheet. Spray the skillet again and cook the remaining pancakes.
