Coconut pancake recipes can be a great alternative for people on a gluten free diet.
And a buckwheat pancake recipe can also be another great gluten free alternative.
A buckwheat pancake recipe uses a fruit seed that is known to contain many health benefits and was used by the Ancient people of Asia.
However, if you want a lower carb pancake recipe, using coconut flour is a great alternative to wheat flour and other high carbohydrate flours.
And by using healthy sweeteners you can add a little sweetness into your coconut pancake recipes without overly spiking your blood sugar level.
I love Paleo pancakes because they actually taste like "real" pancakes and come without the stomach pains (from gluten) - lol.
Paleo pancakes are also known to be a lower carb pancake recipe. I really love this brand of coconut flour (Coconut Secret) - it is my favorite so far.
They also make a really good coconut syrup that is considered low glycemic - which is something a lot of people look for in healthy sweeteners.
You could also experiment with this coconut pancake recipe and use almond flour instead. However, you may have to change some measurements as these two flours work quite differently.
Technically, this is more Paleo than Primal. I happen to love coconut foods, so this gluten free coconut pancake recipe really appeals to me.
I also love that you can make low carb waffles and a low carb pancake recipe from the same mix. A Paleo pancake and waffle recipe all in one - yum!
I really like buckwheat and sprouting does help to release anti-nutrients which makes plant nutrients more readily available to your body.
I like to use a leftover glass coffee pot to sprout my buckwheat, but you can use a more appropriate sprouting gadget. And there are many sprouting contraptions on the market these days.
I would probably also ferment my buckwheat before using it in my buckwheat pancake recipe for better digestion.
So after sprouting the buckwheat, you would dry them in a dehydrator, and then turn them into a flour with a high speed blender.
You could then make a fermented buckwheat pancake recipe.
Yakon Root Syrup - made from a root that has a sweet flavor and is low in calories. It's full of important minerals and is considered a prebiotic.
This sweetener has a high amount of FOS sugar which is a sugar that our bodies cannot metabolize and reminds me of molasses with its rich dark color.
Coconut Sugar - is a sugar that is low in fructose and has a Low Glycemic Index of 35. It is made from the sap of coconut flowers and contains a good amount of important minerals.
This sweetener resembles brown sugar in taste and in color.
Mesquite Powder - is made from the pods of the mesquite tree. This sweetener has a sweet molasses taste and is high in protein as well as in important minerals.
It has a glycemic index of 25 and digests more like a grain.
Lucuma Powder - has a very pleasant maple-like taste and it comes from the lucuma fruit. It's typically made from fruit that has been dehydrated at low temperatures and then milled into a fine powder.
This sweetener is loaded with beta carotene, vitamin B3, and minerals. It is also considered a Low Glycemic sweetener.
Stevia - contains zero calories and zero carbohydrates. This sweetener or herb also has a Zero Glyemic Index and is made from the leaves of the stevia plant.
Stevia seems to help maintain your blood sugar levels in spite of its very sweet licorice taste.
