Scotch pancakes are such a big British breakfast treat that I just had to ‘Paleofy’ them!!! I think that they are best served toasted after being cooked and served with lashings of salted raw grass-fed butter.  Beautiful!!!

Makes: 10

Preparation Time: 3 minutes

Cooking Time: 10 minutes


150ml nut milk of your choice
2 tbsp melted raw honey or maple syrup
1 tbsp melted coconut oil
1.5 cups tapioca flour
4 tbsp almond flour
2 tbsp coconut flour
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 large egg
2 handfuls of mixed raisins & sultanas (optional but super tasty)


  1. Combine your nut/coconut milk, coconut oil and raw honey/maple syrup into a pan and gently heat until all the ingredients have melted into the milk.
  2. In a mixing bowl combine all of the other ingredients (except for the raisins & sultanas) and whisk together.
  3. Gradually whisk in the milk mixture until you have a smooth batter.
  4. Stir in your raisins & sultanas.
  5. Heat a heavy non stick pan on a low to medium heat with no oil.
  6. Add 2 tbsp of batter and smooth into a circle with the back of the spoon or small silicone spatula.
  7. When bubbles begin to appear and the centre seems to be ‘firming up’ slightly flip over until golden brown on both sides.
  8. Serve with some lovely grass-fed raw butter… YUMMY!!!

      1. I will I will have to sub the milk as we are dairy free was pondering the acv though can you explain why that’s needed ?? Cheers V

      2. Hey, sorry I’m dairy free (except for butter) I write all of my recipes as notes into my phone and then transfer them over, obviously forgot to re-write that as I just see milk as being coconut or nut milk in my own head! So thanks for spotting that, I have changed that now. As for the apple cider vinegar it acts as a leavener and helps to increase the air bubbles. Only works when you used bicarbonate of soda though. Hope this helps.

      3. Ah ok cool thanks I make pancakes nearly everyday so this could be an alternative to the usual as the other I make are like crepes and they like to roll then up I will give it a shot thanks
