Our family absolutely loves these healthy, light, and fluffy pancakes! These pancakes take longer than normal pancakes so be patient and wait a while before you try to turn them over!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk coconut milk, applesauce, eggs, honey, vanilla extract, cinnamon, sea salt, and baking soda together in a bowl. Slowly stir coconut flour into coconut milk mixture until flour is just moistened. Set aside until coconut flour absorbs some of the batter moisture, 3 to 5 minutes.

  • Heat coconut oil on a griddle over medium heat. Drop batter by large spoonfuls onto the griddle and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

My family is so picky when it comes to eating healthy but these were a big hit!! We splurged by putting dark chocolate chips on top and there wasn't a a crumb left. Read More

These are hard to flip! Don't make them too big no more than 3" diameter. Kids loved them I'm not crazy about texture. Will substitute banana for applesauce next round. Read More

I made these for a weekend breakfast. They make an excellent low gi alternative. I swapped out the honey for powdered sweetener and the applesauce I made fresh (just allow it to cool before adding to the egg mix). Definitely a weekend breakfast make again. Read More

I made these with banana instead of applesauce. The banana seems to hold the batter together better. I also added 1 tablespoon of almond butter rather than using the honey. Also sliced strawberries make this pancake excellent with a little pat of Kerrygold Irish butter. No syrup required. Read More

We are a gluten free family so we are always looking for gluten free recipes. I made these exactly as the recipe says but since I have a sweet tooth I added one more Tbsp of honey:-) MY KIDS LOVED THESE! I was worried because they are not traditional pancakes but I should have doubled the recipe! This one was a winner for us! They take a little bit longer to cook so you have to be patient. Flipping them is easier when you let them brown a little bit more. Great recipe and I will be making these again! Read More

Fantastic! I followed the ingredients exactly except I only had sweetened applesauce so I used that and omitted the honey (I later used the honey to top the pancakes- they have too good of flavor to smear with syrup). I do have a couple tips for cooks who had problems flipping the pancakes: I used a cast iron griddle preheated on med heat. When I spooned the batter I spread it out a little so the upper side dries a bit and when you flip there isn't any runny batter. Lastly be patient cook first side past golden to brown (better flavor that way too). I was able to make 6" to 7" pancakes with no problems. Will definitely make again wanna try variations of toppings and add ins. Thanks for the yummy healthy filling recipe! Read More

yummy! I only used 2 eggs because that's all I had but added liquid egg whites to compensate. I also only had a small single serve unsweetened applesauce and added about two teaspoonful of olive oil. Read More

Pros: Easy to make had all the ingredients on hand Cons: Taste consistency difficult to flip These are very thin and mushy maybe more flour would help. Read More
