Savoury Broccoli Pancakes

Savoury Broccoli Pancakes


Usually all of my recipes have a nice long write up about why they’re so great, and why I am sharing them, and what’s new in my life.

This recipe will not have that. I’m too stinkin tired. I started a new job this week and the training is taking everything out of me. I’m sleeping 9+ hours and still waking up drained. I’m skipping 90% of my workouts. Just can’t do it. I’m actually writing this in between straightening my hair in the morning before work. That’s the kind of time I have.

So. Savory pancakes. They’re great, right? did you like my recipe for zucchini bacon pancakes? If so, you’ll like this one too I think. It’s not so bacony (obviously, there isn’t any bacon), but it’s still delicious. And still green! I’m still going with the green madness! All green all January was my promise, and I will deliver.

In fact, I already have 2 other recipes in the queue to be shared for greens in January too. TOO much stuff to post, NO FREAKING TIME! so onto these  pancakes. Because seriously, I’ve been drafting this post for 3 days.


Savoury Broccoli Pancakes
Recipe Type: Paleo
Author: Sam
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Serves: 2-4
  • 2 medium heads of broccoli (about 2 heaping cups)
  • 1 small white onion
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 c coconut flour
  • sprinkle of salt
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • duck fat or other fat for cooking (make it ovo-vegetarian by using a non-animal based fat)
  1. In a food processor pulverize the broccoli and onion until they;re in very small pieces. Transfer to a bowl.
  2. in the bowl, mix together with the remaining ingredients except the duck fat. Mix until a batter is formed.
  3. In a frying pan, heat the duck fat. Drop roughly 1/4 c portions onto the pan as pancakes. Let cook for about 3 – 4 minutes on low on each side, flipping very carefully. You want it to get some color on the sides.
  4. Serve with your side of choice – meat, more eggs, or fruit. It’s up to you!
  5. You can also serve with a dollop of grass-fed butter if you’re feeling fancy!


There we go! Broccoli pancakes…who would’ve thought it would be so easy and so tasty? A great way to eat a ton of broccoli in one go. I used my new food processor which is a TANK to make these…such an awesome gift! If you’re reading this parents, thanks <3

    hey sam! how many pancakes does this make? these look so good, but i will be the only one in my house eating them since my family doesn’t eat healthy foods. do they keep well in the fridge and can the be reheated in the microwave?

  2. Hi Canada Girl,

    You put de broccoli RAW in the foodprocessor or steamed/cooked? Thank you for your reply.

    • Yep, raw! No pre cooking necesaary

      • Thanks. I tried it, but it didn´t work out. Probably a problem with the measurements. Here in Holland we use the metric system. Finally I decided to stir some herbs and nutmeg into the batter and bake it like cake. That worked out great! Topped it with tomato-avocadosalsa on the plate. Thanks for the recipe :)

    I don’t know what went one with this, but these didn’t hold together at all. And I followed the recipe to a T. They just crumbled everywhere when I flipped them.

  5. Hey any tips on getting these guys to stay together? Mine would not stay together to flip over. Really sound so good and I want to try it again.


  1. […] 36. Savory Broccoli Pancakes Eat your broccoli! If you ever grew tired of your parents telling you that, you’re sure to be loathe to increase your broccoli consumption on Paleo. But it’s so important for you to eat your veggies on Paleo that you have to find some creative ways to make it so you actually want to eat them. These broccoli pancakes are one such way, and they’ll make you focus on them as your main dish, rather than the meat. They’re savory because she’s cooked them up in duck fat. If you haven’t cooked with duck fat yet drop what you’re doing, go get some, cook these up and then let us know what you thought in the comments below. […]
