Going paleo doesn’t have to mean the end of pancake breakfasts! These hearty pancakes are made with fiber-rich almond flour and healthy fat-packed coconut milk and coconut oil. Naturally anti-bacterial and potently healing Berry Bliss Manuka Honey adds a boost of nourishing superfoods and plant-based protein, while delicate almond oil makes these pancakes delightfully fragrant. Now that’s a reason to rise and shine!

1 chia egg (1 Tbsp chia seeds & 3 Tbsp water mixed and refrigerated for 15 minutes) or 1 egg

½ C coconut milk

2 Tbsp coconut oil

1 C almond flour

3 tsp baking powder

¼ tsp salt

2 Tbsp coconut flour

1 tsp of almond oil

1 Tbsp Philosophie Berry Bliss Manuka Honey or raw honey of choice



1. Add the chia egg or egg to a medium bowl (If you are using an egg, whisk until fluffy).

2. Melt coconut oil by placing the jar in a container of warm to hot water. If you live in a warm region, your coconut oil may already be liquid at room temperature.

3. Add the coconut milk, honey, and coconut oil to the chia egg (or egg) and whisk briskly until thoroughly mixed.

4. In a separate bowl, add almond flour, baking powder, salt, and coconut flour and mix until well combined.

5. Slowly incorporate the dry ingredients into the wet mixture and whisk vigorously until there are no lumps and the batter is smooth.

6. The batter should be thick and fluffy, but moist. Add more coconut milk if batter is too dry. (Note: It is always easier to thin batter by adding more liquid than to try to thicken up a batter that is too watery, so add coconut milk in small increments until desired batter consistency is achieved.)

7. Test the batter’s consistency by heating a pan or griddle on medium to high heat for several minutes before greasing with coconut oil and then placing a spoonful of batter on the heated surface. If necessary, adjust batter consistency.

8. Pour 1/3 cup of batter onto hot griddle or skillet and cook four 4-7 minutes or until crispy and golden before flipping and cooking for another 3-5 minutes on the other side.

9. Add your favorite toppings and enjoy!
