Primal Pancakes

I found this recipe at Comfy Belly.  They are made with coconut flour and topped with organic whipping cream and fresh berries.   We eat a LOT of eggs, so this was a nice break from eggs.  They don't exactly taste like what you get at IHOP, but the kids loved them.  And they really loved decorating them with the berries and cream.  We all agree that they would taste better with a nice organic maple syrup, or even if you add a little sugar to your whipping cream.  But that would not be primal, would it?

For 9 pancakes you will need: 

6 eggs
2 tsp coconut oil (can substitute olive oil)
1 tsp vanilla
2 tsp honey
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
4 Tbsp coconut flour
fresh berries
heavy whipping cream

1.  Seperate the egg whites into a small bowl and save the yolks in your mixing bowl. 
2.  Whip the egg whites until you have stiff white peaks.  
3.  Add your wet ingredients into the bowl with the egg yolks and mix until just mixed.  Fold the egg whites into the bowl.  
4.  Add your dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix in until blended and frothy.  
5.  Heat your pan or griddle to medium high and pour batter with a 1/4 cup measuring spoon on to the pan.  Cook until the edges are dry.  Flip and cook the other side.  
6.  Whip your heavy whipping cream until peaks form.  Serve pancakes with fresh berries and whipping cream.
