Coconut Flour Pancakes
I’m loving these pancakes for 4 main reasons: 1) they’re nice & fluffy, 2) they taste great, 3) they’re gluten free, & 4) you get a pretty decent serving size for the calories.
- 4 tbsp coconut flour
- 1/2 c unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 5 drops liquid stevia (or other sweetener of choice)
- 1/8 tsp coconut extract (or vanilla, maple, etc.)
- 2 egg whites
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tbsp sugar-free maple syrup (topping)
- 1 tbsp peanut butter, slightly melted (topping – I used chunky coconut PB)

Cost Average budget
Pre-heat a griddle coated with non-stick spray to medium heat.
In a medium bowl, combine egg whites, extract & sweetener, then whisk together.
Add in the coconut flour & baking powder. Mix well. Batter will be thick.
Spoon onto the griddle & make about 3-4″ sized pancakes. Batter will need to be spread a bit & won’t bubble when it’s ready to flip, so keep an eye on it. I wait about a minute & look for hints of steam/smoke when it seems about ready.
Cook both sides, then plate as you go along, making a cute little stack.
Topping time! Add whatever toppings your heart desires & have fun with it, but in a healthy way. Try adding some fresh fruit and/or nuts…. I love adding strawberries and/or banana & of course – PB!!
*Note: These pancakes can be a bit fragile, so the larger you make them, the more easily they may break apart… they require a bit of a delicate hand & work better in smaller sizes.
