Paleo Pancake Poppers

Paleo Pancake Poppers | Plaid and PaleoI’m already ready for the weekend. Yesterday I went in for my bi-annual haircut. I only get my haircut twice a year, and sometimes resort to cutting it myself. Gasp. You would think I am just trying to save money, but in reality I have a deep fear of getting my haircut! I know it is completely ridiculous and vain. I can’t help it. I went to someone new since I just moved, and my anxiety slowly started to seep in. Thankfully as usual, my fears weren’t justified at all! I love my haircut and might even share a selfie on Instagram. Pretty exciting stuff.

I’m so excited about this recipe! I love pancakes, like really love them. Pancakes were a staple in my house when I was little. I wanted to make pancakes into a finger food for my nieces. These little pancake poppers are the perfect twist on the classic pancake made in my cake pop maker. They make the perfect dippers into a big bowl of maple syrup. Makes about 22 pancake poppers.

Paleo Chocolate Chip Pancake Poppers

  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 2 large eggs 
  • 4 Tbls full-fat coconut milk

  • coconut oil


  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the almond flour, baking soda & salt.
  2. In 2 different bowls, separate the eggs whites from the yolks. Set the egg whites aside.
  3. Blend together the egg yolks, coconut milk and honey.
  4. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry and mix well. Mix in chocolate chips.
  5. Beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt until they have medium soft peaks. Gently fold into the pancake mixture until well combined.
  6. Pre-heat your cake pop maker. Brush the holes with a little coconut oil.
  7. Use a teaspoon cookie scoop to fill the holes. Be sure to not over fill.
  8. Cook for 90 seconds, then flip donut holes and cook for another 90 seconds.
  9. Every cake pop maker is a little different so times can vary. I suggest doing a test batch of three first.

    I’m so glad I’m not the only one who gets haircut anxiety! I get my friend to make the appointment for me because otherwise I’ll just put it off forever! Once I went about 2 years between haircuts … These pancake poppers look amazing, thanks for sharing the recipe :-)

    These just might ward off that stress. I recently let my guard down, I too have that same anxiety, and low and behold… worst. haircut. ever. To top it off I was filming the next week for a national tv show… Yikes!

    Any tips/ideas for how I could make these without a cake pop maker? I don’t have one and am trying to limit the number of kitchen gadgets that I have… but these look awesome and I really want to try them!

      You can use a mini muffin tin and bake them at 400 degree for about 11 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. You can also use a muffin tin as well but just fill them 1/4 of the way full. Alternatively you can make them on a griddle but I know that isn’t as fun!
