What is a paleo-pacake?

These pancakes are different from my keto pancakes because they contain no dairy, have a slightly higher carb count, and use cassava flour in place of nut flours. These paleo pancakes have no nuts, dairy freegluten-free, and are low in refined sugar.

What is cassava flour?

Cassava flour, also known as the yuca plant, is a flour made from the cassava root. It is grain-free and is made by grinding it. It is also naturally gluten-free.

Cassava flour has a texture similar to traditional wheat flour, making it a great substitute for gluten-free and anti-inflammatory baking.

Cassava flour has a higher carb count than other grains free flours (almond and coconut), but it still falls within the category of low carb foods.

What texture does this cassava flour pancake have?

These chocolate paleo-friendly pancakes have a smoother texture than regular pancakes. These cassava flour pancakes are smoother than my fluffy keto pancakes made with almond flour.

How do these chocolate paleo pancakes taste?

These pancakes are a little like semi-sweet chocolate muffins by themselves. These pancakes are rich but not too sweet. They have a chocolatey taste and a chewy texture (replacing gluten).

They’re not dry, eggy, crumbly or have that strange protein powder taste!

This is what I love about this recipe

The recipe is simple, my children loved it and it’s free from inflammatory ingredients such as sugar, gluten and refined carbs. They taste great and don’t make it feel like I’m eating healthy food. They are full of healthy ingredients that keep me full and fuel my body.

This is why I used Further Food Chocolate Collagen Peptides in my recipe and why you should too

You may not know my passion for Further Food collagen peptides if you are new to this site. I’ve written many posts and recipes that highlight the many benefits and uses of collagen.

This collagen is something I use every day.

Further Food’s chocolate collagen-peptides are used in this recipe for paleo pancakes.

Extra protein (9g per scoop) Gut health, joint and bone support Natural eye health, reducing lines and wrinkles in skin. Reishi mushrooms promote hair strength and nail growth.

It does all that without any of these things:

artificial or refined sweetenersfillers or preservativesartificial flavors and dyes

Further Food’s chocolate collagen proteins are also derived from pasture-fed and grass-fed cattle. This means that you won’t be consuming any grains byproducts.

These pancakes are naturally gluten-free, and the collagen provides the same “bite” or “chewiness as traditional pancakes.

These paleo pancakes are easy to make

This batter is easy to prepare because it doesn’t contain gluten. You have two options: either you can mix the ingredients by hand or use a food processor to blend them. I prefer the former.

Cook the pancakes in a nonstick skillet on medium heat.

Place a generous amount of batter in the skillet. Spread it evenly with the back of a spoon. Flip the skillet and continue cooking for 30-60 seconds.

The batter should make approximately 12 small/silverdollar-sized pancakes.

Ideas for topping your chocolate pancakes

There are many ways to top chocolate protein pancakes, depending on your preferences and dietary requirements. These are some of my favorite toppings:

Natural peanut butter and sliced bananas (as seen) Sliced strawberries and a drizzle of pure maple syrup. Fresh whipped cream, diced strawberries.

This recipe is not compatible with any other flours, brands of collagen, or egg substitutes. The same results cannot be guaranteed if you alter the ingredients.
