Recipe Review: Pumpkin Pancakes from Civilized Caveman Cooking Creations

Last week, I was catching up on podcasts, and I happened to catch an episode of The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore that featured George Bryant, the “Civilized Caveman”.  George spent a lot of time talking about amazing-sounding food, so after finishing the podcast, I headed on over to his site to check him out.  Boy, did I ever find a gem!

George’s site is full of recipes that look quick, simple, and tasty.  Over at, you can find everything from breakfast to main dishes to dessert.  It’s all Paleo, and even though it’s not all low-carb, it looks like most of the recipes can be slightly modified to fit in with your nutritional goals.

While scanning George’s site the other day for something new to try, his pumpkin pancakes recipe caught my eye.  I finally tried it this morning and I found the recipe to be surprisingly good.  In the past, I haven’t been completely satisfied with coconut flour as the only “flour” in a recipe, so I was a bit dubious, but boy did these pancakes turn out well.

I did modify George’s recipe slightly.  Instead of 6 tablespoons of coconut milk, I used 8 tablespoons of heavy cream (to get the fat content up even more), and I sweetened the batter with stevia instead of honey.  I put my snack plates on my George Foreman grill, I set the temp at 350 degrees (Fahrenheit), and cooked each batch for 4 minutes.  They came out great, and I wouldn’t change a thing!

The recipe made 12 pancakes.  I ate two with butter, and that was plenty filling for me.  I’ll see if they reheat well, but that’s assuming they don’t get wiped out by the kids before they make it to the fridge.
