A long time ago while watching some Ron Hood videos I saw Karen making some bannoc. It looked pretty good but I didn’t like most, OK all, the ingredients in it. I don’t eat wheat flour, shorting and certainty not Bisquick. So I thought to myself I should make a paleo version one day. This was a few years ago and I realized I still had not even begun working on the recipe. Today I had decided I would work on it and post the results. I did a Google search for traditional bannoc recipes to swap out ingredients with things I wanted. Luckily for me bannock is a fairly simply thing to make. Good I hate baking.
- 1 cup of coconut flour
- 1/4 tsp of salt
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tbsp of coconut oil
Combine all your dry ingredients in a bowl. If you have a shifter use it, I don’t bake so I don’t have one. Once your combined the dry ingredients add in the coconut oil. use a fork or knife to cut it in. Your aiming to make crumbly little chunks in it. Add to a ziplock bag until your ready to use. I was ready to use right away so I heated up a skillet and added water to my bannoc mixture. I wasn’t real sure how much to add and settled on pancake consistency. I at first tried to cook the entire batch on a lower heat. Well I didn’t have time so I tried again making a tiny pancake like biscuit. I browned on both sides and plated.
Well I’m not going to say I’ve discovered manna from the heavens here. This paleo bannoc turned out pretty darn tasty. I devoured it. It didn’t rise at all and was too crumbly. Having cooked with coconut flour before I knew It has a tendency to be dense and fall apart. So I need to work on that. So taste was great but it didn’t hold together and needs work. This recipe I will devote more time to and see if I can improve it.
