Fat-Burning Paleo Buttermilk Pancakes (Dairy Free, Gluten Free)

Weekends are the perfect time to enjoy an indulgent breakfast. But “indulgent” doesn’t have to mean unhealthy!

In fact, you can enjoy delicious breakfast foods – like these Paleo buttermilk pancakes – that will fill you up and keep your blood sugar stable and your metabolism cranking on all gears.

But let me stress something important…

The pancakes I’m talking about are VERY different than the buttermilk pancakes that come in a box (like Aunt Jemima) or those served at IHOP and other breakfast restaurants. And they’re far better than “whole wheat” or even “organic” pancake mixes you’ll find at the store.

In fact, whole wheat raises blood sugar more than nearly all other foods – including table sugar and candy bars!

And that’s really bad news for your health. High blood sugar levels promote the storage of belly fat… it triggers inflammation… and increases the risk of fatty liver, diabetes, heart disease and many other chronic illnesses.

But the good news is that you don’t need a gram of grain to make delicious breakfast foods that your whole family will love… and that you will love feeding your family.

Buttermilk Pancakes… Reinvented

You’re about to discover a healthy twist on traditional pancakes that is:

  • High in protein (12 g per serving!)
  • Rich in healthy fats
  • Low glycemic and low in carbs and sugars
  • Gluten Free
  • Grain free
  • Dairy Free
  • Soy Free
  • Corn Free

They’re also an excellent source fiber, selenium, riboflavin and manganese and a good source of iron, vitamin B12 and phosphorous.

So go ahead and enjoy a thick stack of these nutrient-rich breakfast bites. Your taste buds and your health will thank you for it!

      Hi Joey,
      Wow! What a nice note. You made my day :-).

      Healing Gourmet is one of my greatest loves and I am really glad that you are enjoying it.

      Wishing you all the best,

  2. Hi Kelley, I recently purchased your downloads for gluten free breads, desserts, & girl scout cookies to add to my repertoire of files to use in my Holistic Wellness Coaching Practice!

    I’ve been preparing a decade with ceaseless tenacious study and have a biochemistry background like you along with many other disciplines many other coaches, trainers, and nutritionist Never cover sadly like Agriculture, change psychology, emotional intelligence, motor development, nutritional counseling, sociology of sport, human sexuality, mind-body medicine, & stress management! Anyway, I think I’m going to love your recipes as a guide for my own “culinary creations” as part of my “Elevated Wellness Coaching.”

    I have a culinary book called “Science of Good Cooking” teaching 50 principles to be great chef as my goal is to use these principles but turn my recipes into ones that melt fat and “heal inside-out” as part of vision connecting worlds of culinary arts-fat-loss nutrition-function medicine. I’d love to hear your thoughts?

    Quick question: Is the coconut buttermilk something you make or buy at a store? I’ve never seen it before. Thanks so much! By the way, where are you from? I love networking with other like-minded holistic professionals especially with food as their focal point! Stay in touch.

      Hi Gabe!
      You are a man after my own heart. Thanks so much for stopping by and welcome! Also, thank you for supporting Healing Gourmet with your recent purchase.

      Your Science of Good Cooking book sounds wonderful. Is it published yet or available for sale anywhere? I would love to see it.

      Coconut buttermilk is a super simple recipe that makes coconut milk a bit tangy with the use of ACV. It is perfect for getting zip into Paleo buttermilk pancakes, creamy dressings and other dairy-free recipes where you want that flavor.

      Networking- I would love to connect with you to hear more about what you are doing in your coaching. We will be piloting Delicious Solutions to group of health professionals to use in their practices. Maybe you would be interested in this too?

      We are based in Huntsville, UT, but I am originally from South Florida.

      Look forward to connecting and thanks again for stopping by!

      Be Well,

    Hi Kerry,
    I prefer when you include the weight measures for coconut flour. I tried converting the weight by referencing a different recipe and ended up with a non pourable batter that I had to add water to before I could make the pancakes. They ended up tasting good anyway. Thanks for your recipes, I’m just starting my journey of eating healthful foods.

  4. What is “coconut buttermilk” and where would someone purchase it? I use coconut milk all the time and have seen coconut kefir, but never coconut buttermilk.

  5. hello Kelly,
    my name is trena and I have a lot of health problems. . doctors don’t really know but link everything to sciatica and fibromyalgia. I have a lot of gut issues too which causes me to battle anorexia and binge eating. doctors tell me I should give the paleo diet a try to see if that’ll help me feel any better. what do you as a nutritionist think about this.?

    • Kelley Herring says:

      Hi Trena,
      Thank you for your comment.

      I am not a nutritionist, nor a doctor. I am a researcher with a special interest in diet, specifically how it related to disease. With that said, I am happy to hear your doctors are encouraging you to try Paleo. Paleo may be helpful for a wide variety of issues as it removes modern day “foods” that our bodies are not adapted to handle. Many of the Neolithic foods – grains, soy, legumes, dairy – cause damage to the gut, leading to a whole host of problems.

      I suggest you talk in depth with a functional medicine practitioner about your health and what may be right for you.

      Be Well,

Speak Your Mind
