I never ate pancakes before going sugar and gluten-free because I always felt awful after eating them. Pancakes are called a breakfast food, but they should be called a dessert for how much sugar and carbohydrates they pack in. When I started baking with coconut flour, I decided to give coconut flour pancakes a try. These turned out so light and fluffy that even my friends who eat normal diets prefer them over regular.
My mom was hesitant to try them because of the sugar crash she gets after eating pancakes, and I had to reassure her that these are sugar-free, packed with fiber and protein, AND they will keep you energized. In fact, the entire recipe for these pancakes makes about two dozen 3″ silver-dollar pancakes and boasts about 24g fiber and 38g protein. If you’re eating three of them, thats 3g of fiber and nearly 5g of protein per serving.
Anyway, my mom has tested them, loves them, and has been begging me to post this recipe for months. Try the chocolate version for a different twist. They might even be better.
- 1/2 cup coconut flour, sifted (I use this one)
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 4 stevia packets
- 3 (room temperature optional) eggs
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 2 tsp alcohol-free vanilla
- *Blueberries, blackberries, chocolate chips optional
- Coconut oil for griddle
- Sift coconut flour into bowl
- Mix all dry ingredients together thoroughly
- In separate bowl, beat eggs until very frothy, then add almond milk and vanilla and mix until well blended
- Add wet to dry and mix with whisk until all lumps are gone. Let sit for a minute.
- If batter is too thick, add more almond milk. It should be pourable.
- Lightly oil griddle and pour pancakes on, adding additional toppings if desired after bottom has lightly browned. Press them into the pancake. When bubbles appear, wait one more minute before flipping. Flip and let cook for a few more minutes until browned on both sides. Because these pancakes are gluten-free, they can be flimsy, so be careful when flipping. I slide the spatula under really fast so it doesn’t have a chance to fall apart.
