Sourdough Pancakes


Just when I needed it most Julia came through with some starter. It came at a perfect time: the end of the 91 day challenge. Which means I’m baking freely! Btw, if anyone needs a starter (you know who you are) I’ve got plenty. As do the Grossenbacher’s. I found this recipe on and my fam really liked it. But then again, who doesn’t like a pancake?

2 cups Fresh Sourdough Starter
1 Pastured Egg (thanks, Cheeks!)
3 Tablespoons Organic Maple Syrup
2 Tablespoons Organic Coconut Oil
3+ Tablespoons Raw Milk, Coconut Milk or Water
1 teaspoon Baking Soda (optional, makes the pancakes fluffier)

Mix together sourdough starter, egg, sugar, oil and baking soda. Use the milk, coconut milk or water to thin the batter to a pancake batter consistency (how much you will need depends on the consistency of your sourdough starter).

Heat a griddle to moderate heat. Melt a slice of butter or coconut oil on the griddle. Once the griddle is hot, use 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake. Cook until golden brown and flip. Cook until golden brown on both sides.

Eat Well, Friends!

Here’s a list of other pancakes we’ve sampled:

Blueberry Pancakes (Coconut Flour)

Banana Macadamia Nut Pancakes (Almond Flour)

Dutch Baby (Almond Flour)

Gluten Free Waffles (Almond Flour)

  1. I’ve not used sourdough before, other than taste – I’m assuming it’s more tangy(?), it substitues for yeast to make the pancakes fluffier doesn’t it?

    Does the sourdough make it more “paleo” or help with the issues of keeping non-grain batter stick together better?

    • Wow, I just wrote you a huge response but I have bad reception in my hotel apparently.

      In short: it fits under the real foods umbrella. It’s more healthy because it’s fermented and has more benefits to you because of that process. Soak your grains for bread or muffins and your body will be able to get more nutrients out of it.

  2. I think that since we don’t have wods on Sunday we should all go to Annie’s for breakfast. I really want to make the banana macadamia 🙂

  3. Well those look downright delicious! Guess I’ll need to look into some sourdough starter…… 😉
