I usually make my pancakes with raw or lightly pasteurized cow’s milk. Many Paleoites don’t use cow’s milk and would consider this more “primal” I consider myself neither really (more Primal). I like to use ingredients that align with our physiology.
However, I have had a few requests to create a Paleo version of my primal version, which BTW, I don’t even have posted!
There is still an option to use grass-fed butter and/or coconut oil. I LOVE butter so I used both, nothing changes, but the taste is more buttery with the butter. Duh…
These pancakes were fluffy and fantastic. Not terribly sweet, which you can add more honey if you like em super sweet, but there is really no reason to.
Whip em up and let me know how it goes!
