Are Paleo Pancakes Good for You?

Whether you find yourself making almond flour recipes, are a coconut flour aficionado, or want a recipe that tastes and feels like the traditional flour ones but uses cassava flour, you’ll find one in this post that will suit your dietary needs!
What Are Paleo Pancakes Made Of?
Paleo pancakes can be made with almond flour, coconut flour, or cassava flour as the base. They also contain eggs and non-dairy milk as the liquid.
Other than those three elements, they must contain a lavender for the “lift” or to make them “fluffy;” which can be baking powder or baking soda and vinegar.
Some baking powders are made with corn starch, which is not paleo, so it’s best to look at the ingredients on the label and make sure that it uses potato or arrowroot starch instead. Alternatively, you can make your own paleo baking powder.
