Paleo Tropical Pineapple Upside-down Pancakes

This is a recipe I have been holding onto for quite a while. In all honesty, I don’t even really remember when I last made these! I have been trying to write a little pancake e-book for you all but I had to put it on the backburner and focus on school for a few months.

The good part is, I’m 4.5 courses and a bunch of case studies away from finishing my Natural Nutrition program. The bad part is, I have a bunch of delicious pancake recipes just WAITING for you to make them!

I decided to share this one early. I’ve already shared one here, but why not another? It gives me time to work on my courses and write exams!

These pancakes are inspired by a dessert my dad always used to make, pineapple upside down cake! I think he liked to make it because he would do it on the stovetop, so technically it was still cooking, not baking Winking smile

Tropical Pineapple Upside-down Pancakes

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Heat a frying pan to medium. Melt coconut oil and add 4 rings of fresh pineapple to the pan. Cook on 2 minutes each side, flipping carefully. You should see the beginnings of caramelization. Remove from pan and set aside.
  2. In a food processor blend the bananas, eggs, coconut flour, and vanilla until a batter has formed. Re-grease the pan and pour out 2 large pancakes and as many small ones as will fit in your pan at a time.
  3. Let the pancakes cook, and when you begin to see bubbles forming on the surface, place the pineapples and raspberries on the 2 large pancakes as shown. Slightly smush the raspberries. Place 1 raspberry in the middle of each small pancake as well.
  4. Flip the pancakes and let cook on this side another 1-2 minutes. Remove carefully and flip back onto the pan to show the beautiful pineapple side! Repeat for the rest of the pancakes.

Hope you enjoy this one! I am knee deep in school right now so I won’t chat long. I can’t wait to be done and really get started on helping more people <3

Mediterranean Paleo Cooking–Review and GIVEAWAY!

Mediterranean Paleo Cooking–Review and GIVEAWAY!

I am so excited to talk about my new favorite book. I know I say that a lot, but the books I’ve been getting lately have been TOP notch. This one and Zenbelly are my favs at the moment.

Let’s get right into it. Mediterranean Paleo Cooking (MCP) is a cookbook filled with 150+ recipes written by Caitlin Weeks, Diane Sanfilippo, and Nabil Boumrar. It is filled with inspired Mediterranean dishes that span breakfasts, appetizers, soups, poultry, meat, offal, and desserts (and probably more). I am obsessed with the flavor combinations in this book and went crazy when it finally arrived at my house!

My boyfriend was also impressed. This is the first time ever that we have sat down and looked at one of my cookbooks together. He pointed out stuff he wanted me to make, i loved it! It’s so much more fun cooking something you know will immensely please yourself and your partner! He wanted the very first recipe in the book, so I made that this Sunday. I posted a picture on my personal facebook page and let me just say….everyone was extremely jealous and wanted a bite.

Paleo Meatball Chakchouka

This is the meatball chakchouka. An instant favorite at our house and I can’t wait to make it for more people!

Want to buy this Beautiful book for yourself or a friend? Click here.

The pages of the book in and of themselves are gorgeous. They have a beautiful ornamental border, which I love. Each recipe indicates how to make it friendly (if possible) for different diets, like nut-free, egg-free, low FODMAP, AIP-friendly, SCD/GAPS, low carb. They have chefs tips and nutritionist notes throughout, because Caitlin is a NTP and Nabil is a chef! Pretty sure that’s why this book is so great, what a combo!

I tried a few other recipes. They all rocked my world. I made the baba ganoush – one word: fabulous. I made the cilantro crackers to go with it. Again – amazing! I adapted those slightly but the flavour profile was all MPC.

Paleo Baba Ganoush

The baba ganoush was really creamy and flavourful. I love the way the eggplants and garlic were roasted together, mmmm.

Finally, I made the strawberry coffee cake! I asked Caitlin’s team and they said I could share this recipe with you guys! They also have a preview of the cook you can see here. I really loved this one too. It was delicious but filling and satisfying, so I actually made it last about 4 or 5 days (a miracle in my house). I can’t wait to make different versions of this one! Check out the recipe:
