Paleo Crumpets

When we were in Seattle last fall there was a cute breakfast place that had the best omelets.  I can't remember the name but they were also making fresh crumpets.  We didn't have one but they have been on my mind and I decided to see if I can make them paleo!  They came out pretty darn good.  I do have to say that they weren't great the next day.  I had stored them in a sealable baggie on the counter over night.  So maybe put them in the refrigerator or eat them right away.

I used a biscuit ring to create the perfect size crumpet!




  • 1 cup hot water (not boiling)
  • 1 package of yeast
  • 1/4 cup fine coconut sugar
  • 1 cup tapioca flour
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking of soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk, full fat from can
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2-3 tablespoons unsalted butter or ghee, for cooking


  1. In a glass measuring cup add 1 cup of hot water.  You can microwave it for about 45 seconds.  Add in package of yeast and let sit for 10 minutes.

  2. In a large mixing bowl add in coconut sugar, tapioca flour, almond flour, baking powder, baking soda and sea salt.  Mix well with a fork or whisk.

  3. Pour in coconut milk and eggs then either whisk or use your hand mixer to create a smooth batter.  Pour in yeast/water and whisk to combine well.

  4. Take a clean kitchen towel and dampen.  Place in the microwave for 2 minutes.  Remove from over and place over batter and let sit for 15 minutes.  Remove towel and whisk batter one more time.

  5. Heat your cast iron pan over medium heat.  Add about a tablespoon of butter to the hot pan and once hot and almost bubbling add in about 1/4 cup of mixture into a ring to create a muffin size of a crumpet. 

    You will see the crumpet for form and the airy holes will start to form.  Once the batter starts to firm up along the edges you can remove the ring.  The first side will take about 5 minutes then flip for 1 minute.  

  6. Enjoy with fresh jam!
