Coffee & Chocolate Chip Morning Zing Pancakes Recipe
Ready for an awesome way to start the day? I thought these coffee pancakes would be fun way to change things up around here. Now that the kids are much older, I say kids but they’re all teens, it’s safe to experiment with bolder flavors, including coffee here and there. Around here there are a few things no one really likes: baked asparagus, spicy food, and coffee. I’m blessed to have to deal with only a short list. It use to be a lot longer, however, by changing up how some foods were prepared, everything changed. For example: fried cauliflower 🙂 Back to the pancakes. If you find yourself in a creative rut, start experimenting with new flavors. Try things you may normally avoid… you may surprise yourself.

Corn & Nut Free Paleo Pancakes Recipe
Every so often, I try to make something that’s corn free, and safe for me to eat. Remember, corn isn’t my only allergy. I’ve been experimenting with tiger nut flour off and on for a while now, and officially, I can’t have it. It was making me really sick. However, before I had to remove it as an option, I had the privilege of enjoying pancakes one last time.
Have you ever had tiger nut flour? If not, let me try to describe it to you, especially when compared to cassava flour. Cassava has a weird fruity after taste in my opinion, and it’s “thin” in a potato/arrowroot starch sort of way. Tiger nut seems to have more body to it, and it looks almost like hazelnut flour. It isn’t a tree nut or legume, rather, it’s part of a tuber. There’s a certain thickness that it brings to the table that I feel works really well with the cassava flour. In terms of price, I think the two are about the same price. The tiger nut that we purchase from Organic Gemini may be a little more, but it is organic, which I think is nice. On to the real reason you came, for the pancakes.

Buttermilk Pancakes & Chocolate Sauce Recipe
Can I ask for forgiveness now? I’m going to. Please forgive me. You see, the kids told me these were some of the best pancakes I had ever made. How cool is that??? Well, I didn’t have a great spatula to flip them over with, and they crinkled, for lack of a better word. The photos aren’t that great, and I haven’t had time to remake the mix to take new pictures. Please, if you care about me, even just a little, forgive me for insulting your precious eyeballs. Mine are still recovering. And yes, I’m still thinking about a career in comedy. I’m thinking a TV show. What do you think?
But seriously, these pancakes are pretty amazing. I’ve always heard of buttermilk pancakes, but honestly, have only recently ventured into buttermilk in general. When you have a child with a severe dairy allergy, it’s a huge scary word… butter AND milk??? Interestingly, I don’t think I’ve ever tasted it, so I have no point of reference for this food, just the concepts that I’ve read about. Needless to say, all went well, tummies were happy, and smiles were expressed.

Egg Nog Pancakes!
That’s right, you read correctly. Egg Nog Pancakes have landed at the table. Now, I must warn you, these are delicious, and the texture is just right. I also found that they taste great without any syrup. The syrup in all honesty made it taste a bit funny….
So, here are the instructions, and yummy pictures. To be honest, editing these pictures was very difficult. I sorta wanted to eat the screen. I call these “wannabe” egg nog pancakes as there is no actual egg nog involved, however, when you don’t have the luxury of drinking egg nog, you’ll take what you can get.
