Recipe: Paleo Coconut Pancakes

I am having a great weekend catching up on cooking and trying out some new recipes!
The past few weekends have been pretty busy so I have had very little time to do any baking.
I got a chance to get back into the kitchen to try out a few new recipes with coconut flour, my new love :)

Coconut flour is a great substitute for other flours: naturally gluten free, it is also a great source of both protein and fibre. It is also delicious and you don't need much as it goes far.

2 x eggs
1/4 cup of coconut flour*
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp cinnamon
3 tbsp honey/maple syrup (to taste) (Extra to garnish if desired)
Coconut oil to grease pan
Strawberries to garnish (if desired)

Heat pan/skillet on a medium high heat.
Grease pan with coconut oil.
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl until smooth.
Add mixture to the pan ( I used just under a ladle full)
Cook on first side until bubbles have formed and underneath is cooked on inspection. (approx 2 minutes)
Flip over gently - you may need to use a spatula and/or fish slice.
Cook second side for approx 1 minute; remove and set aside.
Re-grease pan and continue process until mixture is used up.

Garnish your stack of pancakes with fresh strawberries and honey.

Makes approx 5/6 pancakes. (Double recipe: you can never have too much pancakes!!)
Perfect with a cup of tea.

  1. pancake recipe looks really good. when you say 1/2 cup of coconut do you mean dessicated stuff?

    1. I'm wondering the exact same thing.

  2. recipe sounds good, would like to try it! where do you buy coconut flour?

  3. I've been working on paleo pancakes based on other paleo recipes I've seen around the net. My current recipe is:

    In a Blender, combine:
    3 bananas
    6 large eggs
    Cinnamon (to taste)
    2 Tablespoons Coconut flour
    1/4 cup Almond Milk
    Salt (optional)

    I put this in a shaker bottle for storage. Cook on medium heat, and I use a cast iron griddle.

    With the bananas, I find the pancakes to be sweet enough to not need syrup.

  4. Where is the teapot from please?

  5. Hi,

    Can you recommend somewhere to buy coconut flour etc in bulk it can be quite expensive in health food stores.

  6. Hi, your recipe looks great. Could you tell me please if it is canned coconut milk or the carton like koko?
