This breakfast is crazy delicious ! When my dad tried he literally said “wow this is amazing! This is healthy!?”. He couldn’t believe it. It has a slight French toast flavor from the butter or coconut oil and the pear makes it perfectly sweet, but healthy at the same time. I guarantee that anyone who tries this will love it! (Unless they don’t like pears of course! Lol). And the blueberries can easily be substituted for another berry or fruit. Strawberries and grapes are truly amazing with this recipe!
I call them pancakes but honestly they break up a lot into little pieces so it’s more like a French toast scramble. But honestly, if it’s delicious who really cares that much if it’s that pretty? Lol
You won’t feel like you’re missing out on this recipe even though it’s fully Paleo. It is slightly high carb for breakfast, but it also does have a lot of fiber and other nutrients so it should kind of cancel it out:) This recipe is pretty healthy! It has around 1 1/2 servings of fruit and plenty of nutrients from the coconut flour. If you choose to use grass fed butter or coconut oil you are also getting superfoods healthy fats in your body at the start of the day!
I spent a lot of time tweaking the amounts of ingredients and cooking time on this recipe! It is actually pretty simple! But I wanted to get it just right! I really hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!! Feel free to leave a comment and let me know how you like it if you try the recipe:)
Serves 1 hungry person:
- 200-210 g cut-up pear (about 1 large pear)
- 2 large organic eggs
- 1/2 cup blueberries, grapes, or strawberries (chop them into small pieces)(blueberries can just be cut in half since they’re small already)
- 14 g coconut flour (about 2 tbsp+ 2 tsp unpacked) (I use nutiva, hodgson mill or let’s do organic)
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- About 1/4 tsp cinnamon (I just shake some in from the container)
- 2 pinches of baking soda
- 2 tsp butter or coconut oil
- Heat a large pan on the stovetop on medium heat. (If it’s too small it won’t cook in the middle properly)
- Place pear, eggs, coconut flour, vanilla extract, baking soda, and cinnamon in a blender or nutribullet and blend.
- Mix in the berry of choice into the mixture.
- Place the fat of choice in the heated pan.
- Once the pan is hot pour the mixture in and scrape down the sides of the blender to get it all in the pan. Distribute the mixture evenly throughout the pan so it all gets cooked.
- Leave it to cook for about 3 minutes.
- After about 3 minutes, using a spatula divide the pan in half (separate the 2 haves of the pan with the spatula), and then divide each half into thirds. Then you will end up with 6 pieces. You are simply drawing lines in he mixture to create 6 pieces.
- Now try to flip a piece. Once flipped if the bottom is not brown yet just flip it back over and wait about two more minutes to continue. If it is browned flip over the rest of the pieces.
- After flipping over the pieces leave it to cook fir around 4 more minutes flipping occasionally. You do not want it to be very mushy. If it is continue to cook. You also want both sides to be very browned to g et that french toast flavor : ).
- After the 7 minutes I usually keep flipping the pieces over until they are slightly crispy on both sides. You can turn the heat up to medium high for about a minute or two once it is cooked through to brown the sides more quickly. Coconut oil can burn easily though, so be careful with the heat! I usually end up cooking it for a total of 9-10 minutes
- Remove from pan and serve hot with extra cinnamon for topping!! Hope you enjoy
*I find that maple syrup is completely unecesary since it is already naturally sweet and absolutely delicious from the pear and berries.
