Happy Holidays to everyone! While I did have to work on Christmas we had to do something as a family! What better way to spend time with family than over food? So Paleo Apple-Caramel Pancakes it is! And it is never too late for breakfast. 🙂 I adopted this recipe from http://www.PaleOMG.com (as per usual JB’s food is amazing!). I did make a few alterations though…
Paleo Apple-Caramel Pancakes with Bacon!
3 Apples, cored and sliced as thinly as you’d like
3 Tbs of Coconut Oil
2 Tbs of Homemade Coconut Butter
1 Tbs of Honey
2 Tsp of Cinnamon
Pinch of salt
1cup Coconut Flour
1cup Carton Coconut Milk
1/4 cup of Coconut oil, melted
7 eggs whisked (I thought this was far too many eggs, and next time will use 5 at most)
1 Giant table spoon of raw honey
2 Tbs Cinnamon – it seems like a lot, but you’ll want it in there
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
1/2 Tsp of Baking Soda
Pinch of Salt
First make your apple topping!
1. Add your coconut oil to the pan over medium heat and add your apple slices
2. Allow them to cook down for about 10-12min, and be careful not to burn them
3. Add your homemade coconut butter, honey, cinnamon, and salt
4. While your apples are cooking begin to make your caramel. I had made a ton of salted apple-cider caramels for our Christmas party. They didn’t set up properly, meaning they didn’t get quite solid enough, so we used it as ice cream topping and then for these pancakes! Assuming you don’t have caramel made already, please refer to JB’s recipe here!
Time to make some Pancakes!
5. Mix up your pancake ingredients and throw it on the pan!
6. Cook your pancakes over medium-heat for 2-3 min on each side
6. Cook up bacon!
7. Place bacon and pancakes on the plate and top with your apples and caramel. I found the pancakes to be rather dry, and eggy and would recommend using fewer eggs and lots of apples!
Deliciousness has arrived!
After ‘Breakfast’ I had to head to work. We were surprisingly very busy at The Prime Rib on Christmas day. It was a tad overwhelming but fun to wish people Happy Holidays and see all of the smiles. My husband came in, looking dapper as usual to have a drink and wait for me to get off work, he is my Motek (Sweetheart in Hebrew;). I hope you all enjoyed your holiday and are looking forward to any thing you may have planned for New Years Eve! For us, my brother is in town and we don’t really have plans other than to make an amazing Shredded Pork over mashed Plantains, and have a few brews, and of course a glass of Champagne or two. May the new year bring you everything you work for!
