Coconut Flour Pancakes

Updated: Jul 19

These are not your ordinary pancakes! They get a step up in flavor with coconut flour and oil. The bananas and raspberries take it to the next level. The vanilla subtly combines the flavors and adds that extra, special touch.


To avoid lumps, sift the coconut flour before adding to the batter. If you don’t have a sifter, pour flour into a fine-mesh sieve and gently shake over the bowl.


Feel free to substitute olive oil for the coconut oil.


Prep time: 10 minutes Cook time: 20 minutes Serves: 2


Ingredients


1 large egg 2 egg whites 1½ T. pure maple syrup 3 T. very mild olive oil 1 t. pure vanilla extract ½ c. coconut milk 1/3 c. coconut flour, sifted ½ t. baking powder Pinch salt 3 T. coconut oil, divided 1 large banana, sliced 2 c. fresh raspberries Real maple syrup, for serving


Directions


1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk the egg, egg whites, maple syrup, olive oil, and vanilla extract until smooth. Pour in the coconut milk and whisk to combine.

2. Add the sifted coconut flour, baking powder, and a small pinch of salt. Gently fold in the dry ingredients without overworking the batter.

3. Melt about a teaspoon of coconut oil in a large, hot non-stick skillet or griddle and pour 2-3 tablespoons of batter per pancake. Cook until the pancakes are set and the edges turn a deeper golden color, around 1-2 minutes.

4. Flip and cook the remaining side another 1-2 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from heat and repeat this process with the remaining batter.

5. To serve, stack several pancakes and top with sliced banana, raspberries, and drizzle with real maple syrup, if desired. Enjoy!
