Pancake recipe ("Safe starch" version, but not orthodox Paleo)

In our household, we used to enjoy pancakes 2-3 times a week.  But since going paleo, aren't able to partake.  This was very sad, particularly for my wife who thinks my pancakes were the absolute best!  So I set out to make a paleo version of my old recipe.

My style of conventional style pancakes are flat, and not fluffy (just a personal choice).  I cook them in bacon grease which crisps up the edges with a slight crunch similar to Johnny Cakes, and let me tell  you...It's awesome.  So the below recipe is a paleo-ized version of that.  Warning, this is a "Safe-starch" version as we do eat some rice.

Ingredients:
1/4 cup Almond Flour
1/2 cup Rice Flour
3/4 cup of coconut milk
1/2 tsp of salt
2 eggs

Mix together dry ingredients, add eggs and stir in coconut milk.

Add less coconut milk for fluffier pancakes, add less for flat pancakes (which we like).

This is best cooked in bacon grease.  Coconut oil or lard can be substituted.

Cook until the edges crisp.  I use a range, typically cook a ton of bacon, and use the left over grease to cook them.

Unlike most paleo pancakes, the rice flour does a good job binding the ingredients, making a solid cake that you don't necessarily have to handle with kid gloves.

Sorry for the poor lighting in the pics:




Add pastured butter or coconut butter, and a small amount of honey if desired.

ENJOY!

I thought it might be worth noting from a response I gave on Facebook responding to the issue of using Rice. That thread can be found here.
But here's what I wrote:
PS, the other reason to cook the pancakes in copious amounts of bacon grease and then slather them with butter (aside from adding good saturated fats to your diet) is to lower the GI of the glucose from the rice. And the change in GI is significant!
