Fluffy Coconut Flour Pancakes


This is a great recipe for people on a gluten free or grain free diet, as coconut flour is gluten/grain free.


  • 4 eggs, room temperature

  • 1 cup milk (cow’s or coconut both work)

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 1 tablespoon honey or a pinch of stevia

  • 1/2 cup coconut flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

  • coconut oil or butter for frying


  1. Preheat griddle over medium-low heat. In a small bowl beat eggs until frothy, about two minutes. Mix in milk, vanilla, and honey or stevia.

  2. In a medium-sized bowl combine coconut flour, baking soda, and sea salt and whisk together. Stir wet mixture into dry until coconut flour is incorporated. The batter may be a bit runny at this point, it will thicken up over time, so give it a few minutes.

  3. Grease pan with butter or coconut oil. Ladle a few tablespoons of batter into pan for each pancake. Spread out slightly with the back of a spoon. The pancakes should be 2-3 inches in diameter and fairly thick. Cook for a few minutes on each side, until the tops dry out slightly and the bottoms start to brown. Flip and cook an additional 2-3 minutes.

  4. Serve hot with butter, coconut oil, honey, syrup, or fruit.

Recipe Notes: Both cow and coconut milk work well in this recipe. You can also add cinnamon or fruit as desired. Just keep the pancakes small and watch them so they don’t burn.
