Paleo seems to be everywhere these days. In theory it sounds great, but for some reason I haven't gotten on the train, not a good or bad thing, it just hasn't tickled my fancy.
I love trying new things like that, so maybe my interest will be piqued by Janny's submission today!
Check it out!
Janny thought these paleo pumpkin pancakes looked TO DIE for, so she tried them out.
These Pumpkin Paleo Pancakes went kerPlunk (someone take the keyboard away, this is getting out of hand).
Here is what Janny had to say about her pancake concoction:
"I used almond milk instead of coconut milk, I thought it would be an OK substitution since I'd seen it on other pancake recipes. I'm not sure if that's what caused the burned pile of half cooked batter or not.
The batter did not stick together at all- so flipping the pancakes was impossible!
It actually tasted ok once I got past the texture and burned spots! I opted for eggs and avocado instead. "
I would suggest sticking to the recipe, as we know it is tried and true.
One thing that might have had an affect on the burn-ed-ness is how hot your stove was. As for the batter not sticking together like it should have, it's hard to suggest something that can be used as a substitute for the whole paleo thing (the original recipe used coconut flour which I have never used so I'm not sure as to its "stickiness").
The other thing I caught in the original was that you need to "fold" at one point as opposed to stirring. I'm not saying Janny didn't do this (she didn't mention either way) but in past Pinstrosities that was a big problem if you skipped that, so there is a thought on all that.
I'm no paleo, or pancake, or pumpkin for that matter expert. Like I said, I haven't tried paleo, I'm a waffle kind of girl (I know the batter is pretty much the same it's just a texture thing) and I am probable THE only person on the planet earth who doesn't eat copious amounts of pumpkin in the fall, or all year round really.
What I am saying is, "Pumpkin, Paleo, and Pancake experts of the interwebs!!! Unite!!" What can we do to help the texture on these bad boys??
Happy Tuesday all!
