Paleo Lemon Poppyseed Pancakes I am a slacker. I mean I’m not really but when I fall behind on something I truly stick my head in the sand and play ostrich. Since Legit Bread has sort of taken over my life temporarily, I sometimes realize that I haven’t posted new recipes in awhile and I pretend that it’s not true. I love blogging and interacting with y’all but the idea that I am falling behind makes me want to stick my fingers in my ears and say LALALALALALALA. But this week we are supposed to get our first snow of the year. Yes, we waited until mid-March to get snow. Why would we get it in January or February like a normal winter?! <<Insert eyeroll>>. But in my excitement that we might get a day off school to hang out and watch movies and be still (ish, I mean I do have 3 kids 10 and under), I thought I’d make these as a delicious treat! And because they are SO SO SO yum, I figure maybe y’all will forget about the fact that I haven’t been posting new recipes lately. Fair enough!? I’m glad you’re on board, I knew there was a reason we were friends.Print
Paleo Lemon Poppyseed Pancakes
- Prep Time: 5 minutes
- Cook Time: 15 minutes
- Total Time: 20 minutes
- Yield: 3 1x
1/4 cup tapioca starch
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons cassava flour
1 tablespoon cooking fat (ghee, olive oil, avocado oil)
2 large eggs
1/3 cup dairy free milk
1 heaping tablespoon poppy seeds
4 tablespoons maple syrup or honey, divided
Juice of 4 lemons, divided
2 tablespoons melted coconut butter
- Preheat a large skillet over medium/high heat
- Combine all of the ingredients EXCEPT for the juice of 2 lemons, 2 tablespoons maple syrup, and 2 tablespoons melted coconut butter in a bowl, whisking well until all ingredients are incorporated and batter is smooth
- Grease your skillet and use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to spoon the batter into the pan, spacing pancakes apart
- Flip them after a minute or so, after they start to bubble
- Finish cooking the remaining batter and set pancakes aside
- To make the lemon drizzle, combine the juice of the last two lemons, the remaining 2 tablespoons maple syrup, and coconut butter (use an immersion blender to get a nice creamy consistency)
- Spoon the drizzle over the pancakes and add a few more poppy seeds if desired
Any subs for cassava flour. I have a hard time paying $9-$10 for a pound of flour. love your recipes BTW, just wish cassava didn’t cost so much, especially when this one only uses 2T !!
Try subbing more tapioca or potato starch.

I’ve tried both Anthony’s and Moon Rabbit cassava flour available on Amazon.com, and they are a bit less expensive. Certainly less than buying Almond flour these days. They’ve worked great in the weeknight tortilla recipe. You may also be able to find cassava flour for less at a local international/Asian market. I get my tapioca starch for less than $1 per pound at one where I live.
sooooo yummy. Any bigger than a 4″ diameter makes them hard to flip. Next time I might even add lemon zest because we can’t get enough tartness in lemon foods. These are fantastic. I used coconut milk as my milk alternative.

The pancakes are amazing! I could barely get them off the griddle before they were going into someone’s mouth, including my own. I had to substitute potato starch for tapioca starch, and I used unsweetened almond milk.
I will definitely be making these again 🙂
LOL love this!
Is tapioca starch different from tapioca flour?
Nope they are the same! Cassava flour (where tapioca is derived from) is different as it is the whole root dried and ground vs just the starch.

I made these for my dinner tonight! I snuck a taste right now though and they are sooooo good. I even forgot to put the maple syrup in the batter. I do have a question on the lemon drizzle. I didn’t have coconut butter so I made my own using dried unsweetened coconut in a food processor. How do you melt it? I tried in the microwave and it just burned. Does it get liqudy? Thanks! Can’t wait for dinner!!!
Any subs for eggs? My son can’t do dairy, grains, or eggs
I’m not sure with this recipe. Possibly flax eggs but I haven’t tried.
